Thanksgiving Sunday
Sunday, November 19 – 10:00am

     Sunday is the annual Thanksgiving Sunday at St. Mark’s. Thanksgiving is very much a secular holiday, but it has its roots in many faith cultures. As a child I have fond memories of going to church for Harvest Festival. Everybody would bring produce and other foods to the church, and they would be used creatively to decorate the sanctuary. Then, there would be a celebration Harvest Supper followed by food distribution to poor and hungry people in the community.

Many have been asking how they can best support the families who are victims of the fires in Northern California, specifically Sonoma County/Santa Rosa.  A list of needed supplies was published on October 12.  Since that date, the centers in the area have been inundated with supplies and are now encouraging people to donate funds for the on-going needs to recover and rebuild.
