Ways of the World

Carol Stone, business economist & active Episcopalian, brings you "Ways of the World". Exploring business & consumers & stewardship, we'll discuss everyday issues: kids & finances, gas prices, & some larger issues: what if foreigners start dumping our debt? And so on. We can provide answers & seek out sources for others. We'll talk about current events & perhaps get different perspectives from what the media says. Write to Carol. Let her know what's important to you:

Tuesday, November 21, 2006


We extend heartiest good wishes to all our readers for this day. Thanksgiving feels like it should be the special occasion we would commemorate most of all here at Ways of the World. Note though, that in the following prayer -- an old one from an "old" Forward Movement booklet -- we not only give thanks, but we also pray that God will lead us forward in right actions according to God's will. The challenge continues.

Almighty God, we thank thee for all the blessings of this life, and today especially for those that are ours in this free land; for the fruits of the soil, the untold resources of the earth, the opportunities for work and play and healthful living; for liberty in speech and written word, for public education and regard for every person's welfare. And we pray thee that, as we thank thee for these and all thy mercies, thou wilt continue thy good hand upon us and make our nation great in that greatness which alone is pleasing to thee, even the righteousness that is the doing of thy holy will. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
