Answer by Emily M
Great! I am glad you want to help in your community. Besides churches, you may wish to check with Wheeler Mission, Holy Family Shelter, Dayspring Shelter, and Interfaith Hospitality Network. I encourage you to consider volunteering on a regular basis.

Some churches in your area that you may wish to consider contacting would include Church of the Nativity (Episcopal), Faith Presbyterian (at 82nd and Hague), and St. Louis de Montfort (Catholic, in Fishers). All have been engaged in ministry to the poor.

Title:Thanksgiving service in the Cambrai Cathedral for the deliverance of the Town

Permanent URL:digital.nls.uk/74549224

Description:Troops at prayer in Cambrai Cathedral, France, during World War I. Allied troops kneeling at prayer in Cambrai Cathedral. The abbé, or abbot, and his fellow churchmen are kneeling in the front row: their black vestments blend into the dark wood round the altar, making them more difficult to spot. The altar seems largely unscathed by the shelling that was inflicted on Cambrai, but the broken chairs in the foreground of the photograph indicate that other parts of the cathedral were affected. Cambrai was delivered from German occupation by the Allies after several days of fierce fighting that began on October 8th 1918. [Original reads: ‘On Sunday October 13th 1918, the abbe THUILLIEZ of Cambrai who stayed with a sick woman although threatened to be shot if he did so, held a thanksgiving service in the Cambrai Cathedral for the deliverance of the Town. Also prayers were offered for those who fell during the taking of the town. Civilians who remained in the town cellars and who came out when the Canadians entered are seen in front row left of photograph.’]
Dates / events:13 October 1918 [Date created]

Real Thanksgiving History, Shopping & Dinner-Table Conversations (The Point)

Thanksgiving is a long cherished American tradition, but have we idealized it to the point that we’ve forgotten the true story, the historical events which really surrounded Thanksgiving? And what of the post-Thanksgiving shopping tradition of ‘Black Friday’ shopping– has it commercialized the holiday so much that we’ve forgotten the point? And lastly, for those who spend Thanksgiving dinner with family, how does one mitigate the various table-conversation pitfalls, such as politics and religion? John Fugelsang (Host, Current TV’s “So That Happened”) leads this week’s panel to discuss these issues and more on this special episode of The Point with Kelly Carlin (Host, Sirius XM’s “The Kelly Carlin Show”), James Spady (Assistant Professor of American History, Soka University), and Altagracia Perez (Rector- Holy Faith Episcopal Church). Special thanks to John Cumbler (University of Louisville Professor), Annie Leonard (“The Story of Stuff” documentary filmmaker) for sending in points.

What should we call our church Thanksgiving Outreach?

Question by luvmy3boys: What should we call our church Thanksgiving Outreach?
We are providing turkeys and groceries to needy families in our local public schools. Everyone wants to know the of our program – we don’t have one. Only thing we’ve come up with is Turkeys for Tots which sounds crazy to me! Any suggestions??
Dropping off at schools for guidance counselors to distribute – not sure how that can be seen as evangelism. Sharing the love of Christ with no strings attached – sharing some of what God has blessed us with – that’s our goal. Of course if someone gets saved all the better – not going to apologise for it! 🙂

Clever is better than “patronizing” slogans like “help” and “hope”. I like names that suggest equality among neighbors and community support.
