The world can be, is, a lonely place.  There are times that being alone is beneficial and intentional.  There are many occasions where the environment has deafening quietness that works to manipulate individuals into isolation and seclusion.  What is the balance necessary for thriving?  Belonging!  You were created to belong, to be a part of community.  Thanksgiving is a season to be grateful for the opportunity to, the invitation to belong.  This week, rediscover the divine purpose and place for belonging.
