For the spiritually resonant, Thanksgiving Day is sacred. This is because all the spiritual laws of the universe respond swiftly and favorably to our nation’s collective and powerful Thanksgiving feelings of gratitude and charity. As a result, those who are wise enough to use spiritual laws properly can receive much more to be thankful for.
Today, the community is enjoying Thanksgiving dinner at Christ Episcopal Church at 1700 Santa Clara Ave. Members of the congregation and volunteers from across the city are lending a hand to make this day special for many who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
Christ Episcopal Church has deep roots in Alameda’s soil. The first services were held in the homes of congregation members. The congregation then worshiped at a church that stood at Santa Clara Avenue and Oak Street, the site of today’s City Hall.
