How will we mark—and even celebrate—Thanksgiving this year, in this new place to which we have come?

Some were hoping that large family gatherings might yet be possible during this pandemic—and even planned them. But for the most part those hopes have been dashed and those plans have been wisely changed.

Some were expecting to travel or to welcome guests—and those expectations have been adjusted.

It won’t always be this way, but this year is different. You know that.

It is different, it is difficult—and in this year, it is good.

Let us begin with that.

The temptation is to descend into despair, to succumb to bitterness, to indulge our regrets, and to let a materialistic view of life lead to anger or hopelessness.

When life is difficult, is there any other choice?

When we listen to all that the ancient prophet Habakkuk says, the answer is, “Yes, there is another way.”

SCRIPTURE LESSONS: Habakkuk 3:2, 17-19: II Corinthians 1:8-11
