Reclaiming Thanksgiving
Show Notes

"For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened." - Romans 1:21

If you have been watching the news or reading the news or if you are under 40, chances are you were taught that the pilgrims and the first settlers of America were racist and genocidal and colonizers who murdered everyone, etc, etc.

While, no one is perfect, and all civilizations can be judged harshly from the future, this view of history is just plain wrong.

The story of Thanksgiving is a story of faith and providence.
God provides. God blesses, and we are thankful for God’s abundance.

And we can shout, like the proclamation in Revelation 7
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”  - Revelation 7:12

Happy Thanksgiving and keep the faith!
