Find something in your neighborhood that is a gift from God (you won’t have to look far) and celebrate it. Celebrate the clean water you have to drink, the food you eat, the soil that provides the possibility of food. Find one good thing and create a liturgy of celebration. Invite others to join you for the celebration of thanksgiving.
