Library Lady - Gloria

This week I'm recommending a title from a very popular series, namely "The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks."  In that story the young members of the Bear family learn the meaning of the holiday of Thanksgiving.  It's a good holiday to recall in the spring because the Gloria cultivates a positive attitude of celebration.  Plus, it's so closely related to the liturgical song we sing in place of the Gloria sometimes: "This is the Feast."  Thanksgiving is always one of the biggest feasts of the year, but it still pales in comparison to communion!

The story is a great way to share the meaning of Gloria with young members of the church.  We recognize God's glory as reflected in the blessings of our own lives.  That's worth singing about every week!


  1. As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
    It is truly regrettable that we have forgotten a primary goal of the 60's: to live for others rather than for ourselves. Maybe because we are not truly grateful?

  2. Just for fun, check out this Utube link, but be sure to watch it all the way to the end (about 2 minutes)

  3. Like Microsoft outlook 2010 from it is still the best and most useful tool of its kind. However, watch out for add ins that seem to pop in from no where. They slow download outlook 2010 down to a painful grind.
