6 Pastor s Page Rev. Thomas LeBeau Pastor, United Methodist Church of Cooperstown 66 Chestnut Street, Cooperstown, NY Telephone (607) Cell Phone (607) Since Thanksgiving is coming this month I think a reflection or two on gratitude are appropriate. The reflections I offer are based on those from the booklet, Living Abstinently: A Guide to the FA Tools, published by Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA). You can infer from the program s name that being addicted to food is fraught with challenges. For instance, while alcoholics can separate from the bottle, we all have to eat. Those addicted to food find it especially challenging having to face the source of their addiction three times daily. So, FA s reflections on the importance of practicing gratitude as a tool of remaining abstinent from addictive eating take on special importance. And I think they can be beneficial to all of us, whatever our life challenges are. FA talks about choosing gratitude. In their program (and in life in general), we have a choice. We can choose to be grateful, whether we feel it or not. Recovering persons find that actions of gratitude lead to feelings of gratitude, not the other way around! Scriptures reinforce this concept. Take Psalm 50:14-15 for instance, Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, pay your vows to the Most High! Cry out to Me whenever you are in trouble; I will deliver you, then you will honor me. The sequence here is significant. First, we are instructed to offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving. Implied in the word sacrifice is that it might not be easy to do so, but we do it anyway. Then, we ask for God s help. The psalm says that God promises to deliver. And, being delivered (helped), we will then feel grateful, we will honor God. Philippians 4:6 agrees with the idea of choosing gratitude: With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Paul uses the same sequence: gratitude first (thankful hearts), then prayers and requests. Paul actually doesn t say that feeling grateful is required first. That s because it is really important to note here that the heart was considered that center of thinking, deciding and doing in Paul s time. It was not just center of emotions! So, for Paul, with thankful hearts also meant choosing to be thankful, whether or not one felt it. The FA program admits that some of us routinely see the glass as half empty rather than half full, and that we can t expect instant transformation. However, if they want to stay abstinent (and if the rest of us want to grow spiritually) we have to make the effort to practice gratitude. They suggest making a daily gratitude list as part of one s spiritual practices. That s a very good idea! As we approach Thanksgiving, I will work on that, and I hope you do, if you aren t already doing so. Let us Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His kindness endures forever! (Ps. 107:1). Happy Thanksgiving! Pastor Tom
