This Sunday sees our annual thanksgiving service for the harvest. Although we are an urban congregation we take time each year to give thanks to God for all the blessings we have received and the the food we eat. For many of us today, food production is a thing that happens 'over there'. Very few of us actually grow the vegetables we eat and enjoy and as for meat production most of us are content to buy what we need from the shops. The thing is, though, is that food does not just magically appear on our tables there are many involved in its production and to all those people we need to be thankful. We in the developed world also need to be thankful for the bounty we enjoy for many parts of the world know no such luxury. At our service on Sunday we at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Murrayfield will remember all who provide the things we eat and we will give thanks for those who do so and pray for those who are less fortunate than we are. Come and join us.
