The Wonder of It All: Gratitude and Generosity
“For we are drawn together and are now ready to be knit together by a common stake
in these United States and in our cherished community.”
RATHER THAN REMAIN APART WE COME TOGETHER!
We seek in our joint Thanksgiving a fusion of stubborn creative differences.
We celebrate wisdom, justice, and generosity, all at the core of our heritage and our common hope.
We stand ready to meet the challenge before us all – to find ways to jointly contribute from our own life to the good of all.
We are grateful for being entrusted and called to serve as good stewards of the earth, this land, this home called Huntsville.
Join us as we celebrate the spiritual and cultural realities of gratitude and generosity
as well as our common national heritage of being a thankful people …
and crown God’s good with love endured, from sea to shining sea.
The objective of One Huntsville is to provide an opportunity to meet across religious, racial and cultural segments, exchange information and become informed via a good program.
