Thanksgiving TraditionsBy Joe Stowell on November 25, 2014
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought you'd like to hear about the special celebration we had here at Cornerstone on Monday evening.
Our food service team prepared a fabulous Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings for our students so that they could enjoy a traditional family meal together before going home for Thanksgiving break. Faculty and staff carved the turkeys and hams, served the punch, creamy green bean casseroles, oven fresh rolls and an assortment of decadent desserts!
This annual tradition is an opportunity for us to show our students how thankful we are for them, and it also helps us cultivate gratitude in their lives as well. One of our Resident Directors, Kristie Neff, told me about the game they played at her table. Each person had to share something they were thankful for in 3 seconds, or they were out of the game. In light of God's bountiful blessings in our lives, hopefully all of us would have something on the tip of our tongues ready to share in 3 seconds or less!
I'm thankful for each and every one of the students that the Lord has led to Cornerstone. And celebrating Thanksgiving with is just another reason...why I love it here!
