This season of harvest and thanksgiving is about bringing everyone back to the table of abundance. It’s about humanity together finding a path back to vibrant tables that nourish our bodies and our souls.
What better time could there be to do this than November when we are most intentional about giving thanks? What better time than when the bounty of autumn is overflowing with the hues of orange, deep greens and vibrant purples, all coming from the good brown earth? What better people to set tables of welcome from the altar of the Earth’s womb than you and me?
This message is an excerpt from “People of soil, seed and abundance” by Venice Williams in the November 2016 issue of Gather. Today we remember Clement, Bishop of Rome, who died around 100, and Miguel Pro, martyr, who died in 1927.
