Happy Thanksgiving from the Creeds

November 23, 2015 | 2 Comments

Dear Campus Community and Friends of Campbell University,

Our national tradition of giving thanks at this time each November is an occasion that our nation proudly celebrates. The Thanksgiving holiday gives us a short pause to reflect on our many blessings and voice gratitude for our family, friends, and others who have shaped and inspired us. We are equally grateful for the simple things in our everyday lives that bring us comfort and joy, and even for those circumstances that challenge us as we strive to fulfill our potential as individuals created in God’s image.

In the Campbell University community, our blessings are abundant, and we have much for which we can be grateful. We are a community filled with a special spirit of Christian service and commitment to a mission that seeks the betterment of every student and of the common good, in body, mind, and spirit.

We count among our many blessings the opportunity to be a part of the Campbell community, and we are deeply grateful for the warm welcome we have received from students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends. We appreciate all that you do to make Campbell the special place it is, focused on developing students who are grounded in faith, committed to serving others, and engaged in the intellectual life.

This Thanksgiving, my prayer for you is that you find time to take a few moments to consider your blessings. May you celebrate this time with those you love, and give thanks for them in ways fitting to your faith traditions. If gratitude is the memory of the heart, I pray your memories are plentiful and your heart is full. We will remember each of you and your families with gratitude in our thoughts and prayers over the Thanksgiving weekend.

With best wishes,

Brad & Kathy Creed
Office of the President
Campbell University
