Gratitude in Pain and in Joy

I wrote a Thanksgiving piece for the digital edition of Everyday Woman Magazine, even though I am not, in fact, an everyday woman.

Here’s a tease:

Sometimes – surely – Scripture doesn’t mean exactly what it says. Ephesians places one of those difficult phrases in front of us: “always giving thanks to God the Father for everything…” (5:20). Everything? Really? Am I to give thanks for the divorce that rips apart a family? A disease that shreds a body? Does God actually desire me to be grateful for the evils of slavery and genocide?

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
