On Thanksgiving, our bodies hold diverse and competing truths. This is a day of celebration, a day of connecting with family, giving thanks for all good gifts including food as we feast. Thanksgiving in the United States is also wrapped up in a national myth steeped in sin. We often omit or don’t comment on this perpetuating story. Part of returning to God, repentance, is truth-telling, admitting hard truths we would rather omit or not comment on.
