“Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by His hand that made all things of nothing, and gives being to all things that are; and, as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation."
―William Bradford (1590-1657) Governor of Plymouth Colony
Here are some photos of the inaugural HCA Thanksgiving Feast.
What an awesome evening with 800 of my best friends!
Thank you to everyone who helped plan and provide for this event. Thanks to the faculty for your servant hearts, even when you had other things you could have been doing. Thank you to every HCA family for simply showing up to eat; a simple act promoting unity and fellowship within the school body.
A school-wide Thanksgiving Feast has been something I have desired to have since the day we moved onto this property 8 years ago, but there has always been a roadblock in getting it done (primarily the lack of a working kitchen until two years ago). Seeing it finally unfold last night was amazing, and certainly helped me refocus on the things I am thankful for.
I pray you have a wonderful celebration of giving thanks this week!
