Happy Thanksgiving from the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship

As we approach the busy Christmas season, the Thanksgiving holiday provides us an opportunity to pause, reflect and give praise to the One from whom all blessings flow. We at the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship want to take a moment to show appreciation to all Cooperative Baptists, CBF congregations and our organizational partners. Thank you for partnering with the Fellowship to renew God’s world.

O God, when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,
help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home,
help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer;
And remembering,
help me to destroy my complacency,
bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,
 those who cry out for what we take for granted.
Amen.

– Samuel F. Pugh
