Goshen College students enjoy Thanksgiving with professor

As the annual gathering has grown over the years, Samuel admits he does at times have the occasional “What was I thinking!” moment... but only for a moment.

“I mean, there are moments where I say to myself, ‘This is absolutely nuts’, but it’s only for a fleeting second,” Samuel said. “But it boils down to, it’s Thanksgiving, and we’re thankful for community and the family we have. We have two large families in Philadelphia right now, and we can’t be with them, so we make our own family here, and we’ve extended that out to other people. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, what you think... we don’t care about any of that today. Today, it’s just about hanging out and having a great time with friends.”
