November 22 marked a special day for PCA – the school’s Thanksgiving feast! Families were invited to gather together over food, while the students enjoyed a half day to start off their Thanksgiving holiday break. Our school’s small size allows for a gathering such as this to be done while remaining cozy enough to have the feel of a large family. A special thanks to all of the families who helped make our feast happen. From organizing, setting up, cooking food, and cleaning afterward, it could not have been done without you.
After the tables were set and the food was eaten, Mr. Bailey gave a short speech about the importance of food seen in the Scriptures. From Adam and Eve in the garden with the fruit of a tree, to the Israelites in Egypt receiving the Passover meal, to the manna in the wilderness, to Jesus’s coming and feeding thousands, and his Last Supper with his disciples, we see the Lord using food as a means for fellowship and teaching. Even now, after Thanksgiving has come and gone, we reflect on and give thanks for food, not only because it nourishes the body and tastes good, but also because it provides a means to meet together and points us to the Giver of our daily bread. We hope that your Thanksgiving holiday was enjoyable and restful as we prepare to step back into school for the next three weeks before the end of the year.
