    This time of year my email inbox gets flooded with holiday tips.
    Unless they involve tips to get free cookies or pie I generally delete them without even opening them.
    However, I got one the other day from strategy consultant Lisa McLeod that caught my attention. She writes a weekly column, usually about success in business, but sometimes she writes about more general topics, like her most recent one: “Tips for a Horrible Holiday.”

  • In everything let us give thanks!

    Thanksgiving ... giving thanks ...
    In church last week Rhonda Strawzell led the children through an exercise with an acrostic. They had the word “T-H-A-N-K-S-G-I-V-I-N-G” printed on a piece of paper. As they read down the page, they hollered out something for which they were thankful that began with that letter.

    Recently, I listened to an eight-episode podcast (like an internet radio show) called “Oh Dear God.”
    Done by two young, thirtysomething women, they both grew up in the Christian faith.
    Today they like some of Christianity, but not all of it. Same goes for their feelings about the church.
    The women met at camp -- they love church camp -- and now they’re comedians who live in Los Angeles.

  • Time to stop and say ‘thanks!’

    In 1860 a steamboat with nearly 400 passengers broke apart off the Illinois coast. Northwestern student Edward Spencer swam out 17 times to rescue victims. Finishing his final swim, his body gave out, his mind delirious, all he could ask, “Did I do my best?”
    His superhuman efforts saved 17 lives. Spencer, for his heroics, became an invalid for remainder of his life.
    Years later, a reporter asked him about his most vivid memory of the event. Spencer offered, “I remember that not one of the 17 returned to thank me.”

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.
    Dear God,
    Here I am again, my 18th year composing my annual psalm of Thanksgiving, my public declaration of gratitude to you.
    The biblical writers say we should give thanks in all things, in good times and in bad. Even in bad times, you are still good. You are gentle and kind. You do not break a reed that’s been bruised, neither do you crush a spirit that is wounded.
