Every October my church hosts a Harvest Dinner to kick off it’s stewardship campaign and raise money for the youth group. Each table has a theme and there is always a “very competitive” drive for the coveted Dragon award. It is always so much fun and the best way I meet new people. From Downton Abbey to White Trash Trailer Bash and the winning, posh but biblically accurate, 40 days in the wilderness this year was amazing. Our Rector, Leigh Spruill, reminded us that joy and gratitude should always go together. Here is evidence that it does.
