I know this is not a typical Thanksgiving post, but it hit me as I read Jeff's post that often we overlook people who are performing "lonely callings" - and we ought not do so. We ought to be thankful for everyone who does anything that helps our religious lives move more smoothly - and we ought to be aware of those who want to do so but don't know how.
I love the thoughts expressed in Jeff's post - so I would like today to say:
Thanks to everyone who serves in a lonely calling! Wherever possible, may we make it less lonely by our recognition, attention and care.
