“Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home; all is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.” “Come, ye thankful people, come” 1884 Henry Alford Tune “St. George's Windsor" by George Job Elvey
Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
October 11, 2021, marks the celebration of Canada’s Thanksgiving Day.
Autumn, with its crisp winds and changing colours, ushers in moments of reflection and a feeling of warm nostalgia. It is harvest time, when visions of canning vegetable and preserving jams and jellies remind me of family and community gatherings. What better time to commemorate thankfulness?
Thank you for celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving with me on Tea Toast & Trivia. A special thank you to my brother, Brian for his rendition of the hymn “Come, ye thankful people, come,” which was set to St. George’s Windsor, by George Job Elvey.
Until we meet again, dear friends, I leave you with the words of Meister Eckhart, German theologian, philosopher, and mystic.
