Hello! How are you? Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have been thinking a lot about how we can use this holiday to grow together as a more inclusive community. Many of you may already know that I was brought up in a Christian home, and our family always made it a point to invite our friends and neighbors over who didn’t have family around to eat at our Thanksgiving table.
Sometimes it was the single person at our church whose family lived in a different state and during my college years we always invited our friends and roommates over to join us during the holidays.
Our family always had an open door to those who may have otherwise spent it alone.
Have you ever reached out to friends, roommates, and neighbors to invite them over to join you at your Thanksgiving table?
I believe if we all made a greater effort to do this even more often, we can do our part in building more inclusive communities.
