Sharing on Thanksgiving

Juan Cole, who writes Informed Comment, my favorite blog on the Middle East, has a great post on a church in Memphis that is celebrating Thanksgiving in a joint ceremony with Muslims and Jews.  The groups are also celebrating the holiday by working together to feed the homeless.  Cole blends this story with a glance back at the original Thanksgiving, another time when Christians joined with people of another faith. 

Cultural understanding takes work.  We are lucky to have people like Juan Cole who cut through so much of the smoke we are fed by the media.  Happy Thanksgiving.
