It's thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada, and a bunch of the Vancouver based Beams creators and contributors have gathered with kids, turkey and mulled wine to celebrate. So the theme of the Jukebox this weekend is going to be songs of praise and thanks. I've surveyed the house for songs choices and the following is a list of those tracks plus the name of who chose them. There won't be a lot of commentary along the way because, well, we're busy eatin and drinkin!! But I think it's a good selection of songs, and as always, if you have picks of your own please add em in the comment section.
First up though, to to give thanks and bless our shared meal and gathering, a short reflection on gratitude from Brother David Steindl-Rast.
