November – harvest, bare trees, colorful leaves strewn about, Thanksgiving. Growing up Lutheran, the hymns we sang at Thanksgiving were among my favorites. And it is still my favorite holiday – long weekend, great food. This is a simple chorale of thanks, with some detours into my heart. Basically the chorale is stated, there is a middle section that searches for a way to say “thank you”, another statement of the chorale, and a coda of peace and stillness.
