Thanksgiving Day

Today Americans (and friends of Americans) celebrate what is probably the most religious national holiday in the United States. Tradition has it that the first immigrants, whom we call “pilgrims” for their religious relationship to their new home, were helped by the Native Americans to survive. As they shared the harvest of their labors on this fruitful land, they gave thanks to the Lord, for all He had given them, and for life itself. When hunger, cold, and sickness threaten us but we nevertheless we survive and carry on, we have to know God has helped us once more.
