LDS Writer Gives Thanksgiving Thoughts In LA Times

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- LDS writer Kathleen Lubeck Peterson again shared her thoughts in the Orange County edition of the Los Angeles Times, telling her neighbors about her family's history and how that history frames Thanksgiving for her.

Peterson writes of a Danish boy's hunger for food in the 1800s, comparing that to her father's spiritual hunger while growing up in a non-religious household. "Hunger comes in many guises," writes Peterson. She then points out that Thanksgiving lacks meaning in the face of hunger, and suggests that those truly thankful share what they have with others, because God gives us all we have. "We are His. He feeds us. He has bought us. All that we have is a gift from Him. And we, following His example, must give the good gifts, too."

Peterson is a resident of Irvine, California and a former seminary teacher. She writes the articles she submits to the Times as part of her service in the LDS Church's Public Affairs.
