Abraham Lincoln is a hot topic these days with the great movie that just came out at the theaters. Did you know that he’s the one who issued a proclamation for the celebration of Thanksgiving in the United States? His point of reference is to express gratitude for all the blessings we experience.
Here at FrancisCorps we are grateful to so many for for so many good reasons. We are, of course, grateful to God who has blessed us with life and the journey that is ours. We are grateful for our volunteers who are so generous in their service and community. We are grateful for those whom we serve who gives the opportunity to grow, learn and experience Christ in them. Finally we are grateful for our families, friends, alums and benefactors without whom none of this would be possible.
Have a great Thanksgiving. And don’t forget… if you are at table with the college senior, ask them if they have considered doing a year of service. Tell them about FrancisCorps!
