Dear Friends of the Arizona Interfaith Movement,
Thanksgiving is a special time of the year for many of us. Some of us go back home to be with family and friends. Others spend the occasion as guests of relatives, friends and acquaintances. If this doesn’t describe your Thanksgiving, or you’re not “feeling it”, there’s still something here for you and our hope is you’ll feel blessed and valued.
Even with all the additional chaos 2021 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. One of the greatest gifts this challenging year has given us is a new perspective on the things we’ve been taking for granted all this time! A new perspective on just how grateful we are for the simplest of things.
Sometimes, we forget to tell people thank you for being in our lives. Today, I will try to make up for all the times I’ve forgotten to say thank you for helping us here at the Arizona Interfaith Movement and being there for us. You are special and we are better because of you.
First, thanks to our loyal members who have faithfully sent in their annual membership dues. Your support is invaluable and we cannot express our gratitude enough for your partnering with us to build bridges of better understanding and Golden Rule awareness.
Secondly, let me say a big thank you for all of you who have been so patient during our Golden Rule Banquet delays. Some of you bought tickets for our 2020 banquet and some for our 2021 banquet, none of which materialized due to the covid risk. Thank you for your purchase. We want you to know that those tickets are still valid for our April 2022 banquet and we look forward to sharing that time together with you.
Thirdly, I want to thank all of you who have purchased our Golden Rule license plates in the past and are still renewing those plates. This provides the needed resource to help spread the message of the Golden Rule in the community and in schools. If you haven’t purchased an Arizona Golden Rule license plate yet you can do so by going to www.servicearizona.
Our prayer for you is that your Thanksgiving Day will be filled with love and family and lots of good cheer to spread around to all. Most of all, we hope you bless yourself by blessing someone else with kindness, unconditionally.
Blessings and Peace,
Rev. Larry Fultz, Executive Director
P.S. If you don’t have your license plate yet, you can be a traveling billboard of kindness and civility by purchasing one at www.serviceaz.com.
