In a post-pandemic world, all blessings are a little bit sweeter than before, and all gatherings where blessings are acknowledged, songs are lifted high and a top-notch meal is shared with others amidst laughter and prayer should be celebrated and savored.
This is what happened at Third Congregational Church on Miner Street in Middletown on Nov. 20. Eight 20-pound turkeys were donated by the deacons and others. Folks signed up to bring side dishes and desserts. A decorating committee came together to create an autumn setting of beauty and abundance.
