On this Thanksgiving Day we, the founders of Common Tables, pause to give our thanks for you - the people who have stepped forward to help, each in your own way, as together we create a model which offers the world an alternative to bias, bigotry, racism and religious intolerance. A model in which differences are honored and common ground is celebrated.

"When millions of people gather to break bread and discover common stories, they create space in which new stories can be written."

In a few short months Common Tables has grown from a dream of what might be into a global force impacting the way people interact in 47 countries around the world. Together we are proving that Common Tables is an idea whose time has come, an idea with the power to lower perceived barriers and to promote respect and understanding between traditionally disconnected communities around the world.

"You're pioneers and we need you!" Bruce Feiler, author of Walking the Bible, Abraham, and Where God Was Born.

Thank you for being involved in Common Tables. Of greater importance, thank you for standing in the Truth as you see it. We respect, honor and bow to your path . . . and we give thanks that you are exactly who you are.

On this day of Thanksgiving, we affirm the importance of each of you. We respect and honor each of your paths, and are thankful beyond words to have you as part of the Common Tables family.

You are the best!

With Peace, Love and Blessings,

Dave, Kay, Randy and Sandy
Founders, Common Tables
