Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke

Every year the President of the United States issues a proclamation proclaiming the last Thursday of November as our national day of Thanksgiving. On this day, all Americans are invited to pause and give thanks to our Creator for the many blessings, large and small, that have come to us during the previous year.


It is hard to think of blessings when fires rage throughout California destroying homes and lives, when soldier and aid worker lives continue to be lost in Iraq, and when so many families here at home teeter between having a home and homelessness. Yet, the strength of our nation has been our willingness to lift each other up, and our resilience to see hope and an outstretched hand appears. Blessings are all around us for those who have eyes to see, and you just might be the reason someone else is giving thanks this season because of your caring and encouragement.

Because the Thanksgiving holiday is only a few days long, many students can’t get home to celebrate with their families. Two of our clubs--Christian Fellowship and Catholic Campus Ministry--are sponsoring a traditional American Thanskgiving dinner at the new Sea Warrior Center on Thanksgiving Day, Nov 27, at 1 p.m., for only $5. Tickets must be reserved through my office, UB 1506, 544-9394, or club leaders.

Other Thanksgiving day activities include worship, football and Frisbee throwing, and American football on all the Sea Warrior Center TVs. All students are welcome! Come and celebrate this traditional feast with turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, stuffing, salads, and pumpkin pie. Get your tickets early and let’s all be thankful for the blessing that is ours to pursue higher education at HPU. See you there!
