thanks for...







thanks for the rain,
thanks for the food,
thanks for a great day,
thanks for catching that error,
thanks for buying lunch,
thanks for understanding,

or

thanks for dying on the cross, like I heard earlier today.

this is not an ultra-religious post - language is curious, and some phrases just don't work for me. even thank-you feels better to me. I guess I totally approach religion with formality, and being casual just doesn't cut it sometimes.

hmmm...formalities...to what extent? does it stop at words?

How do you feel about "We give thanks for dying on the cross?"

I respond more positively to that phrase. maybe because it sounds corporate. and "give thanks" feels antique to me.
