Thanksgiving season is every season for Christians. In fact, the word eucharist comes from the Greek word for “thanksgiving.” In these weeks leading to the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, enjoy our special feature on some Thanksgiving themes. We’ll update this feature regularly, with reflections on food, family and faith.
