In this special season, we pause to give thanks for the unique contributions of every member of the Samford community. This year we offer a Thanksgiving table prayer by University Minister Bobby Gatlin to share with your loved ones in celebration of God's blessings. 

We wish you a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving.
