Thanksgiving is not only a time of feasting, in the spirit of the Pilgrims, of Samoset, Squanto, Massasoit and the Wampanoag tribe. It is a sweet time of families coming together, pausing to give thanks.

As often happens on our beautiful campus, the extended Texas summer has quickly given way to chilly temperatures that remind us that winter is right around the corner. These nippy mornings give rise, however, to very warm hearts as we call to mind the joy of Thanksgiving, followed quickly by the bright promise of Christmas. With abundant blessings enlivening our days and inspiring our dreams, I bring you warm greetings from Baylor University.

Baylor President and Chancellor Ken Starr was the keynote speaker at the 25th annual Amarillo Community Prayer Breakfast on Nov. 25. “This is such an important event,” Starr said. “First of all, it’s Thanksgiving week — what a wonderful way to begin with the community coming together in prayer to begin the honoring of Thanksgiving. One of the things that I tried to lift up today was a vision of gratitude for what we have, our obligation to help others, but also our obligation to be vigilant about maintaining the freedoms that are so precious.”

VIDEO LINK INCLUDED: Baylor President and Chancellor Ken Starr was the keynote speaker for Amarillo’s 25th annual Community Prayer Breakfast, an annual event designed to focus prayers and faith in a non-specific, non-denominational, “non-church” setting on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The prayers are focused on the leadership of the community, the city, the state, the country and the world. “We want to ensure that our leaders at every level have strength, have wisdom, and we are doing our part. We need to get out and vote, we need to get involved and we need to pray for our leaders as the Bible tells us to do,” Judge Starr said.
