Well, it’s Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. It’s our annual celebration of gluttony and one of the few holidays that still revolves almost entirely around family. Somewhere between noon and six today, millions upon millions of people will sit down together, say grace and then dig in.

I asked God how she feels about those before meal prayers and in particular the litany of thanks and small requests that abound on Thanksgiving.

She told me that “grace” is kind of like junk mail. It’s mostly all the same, you mostly ignore it, but every once in a while there’s something vaguely interesting.

And at least it’s better than chain letters.

My favorite Thanksgiving prayer has always been “Red Rover, Red Rover, send Jesus on over!”
