About Thanksgiving Day
We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing...
Sing praises to His name, He forgets not His own.
It was a tradition started over three hundred years ago, as the Pilgrims and Indians gathered together in thanksgiving and remembrance of God's many blessings.
The memory of the enormous sacrifices the pilgrims made and of God's provision for them is a remarkable story of faith blended with spiritual reminders of God's continual care.
As you share this moving account with your family and friends, you can begin a new tradition -a tradition of remembering the past and expressing gratitude for the blessings of today...
1789 Congressional Proclamation:
"There shall be a day of public Thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God..."
A holiday for celebrating faith, family, friends and freedom, Thanksgiving Day is both distinctly Christian and exclusively American, enabling all to recognize God's hand in our history, and express thankfulness to Him for His goodness at all times.
The story of the Pilgrim's faithfulness and biblical thankfulness will call our hearts to gratitude. It's a wonderful opportunity to enrich our awareness of our nation's Christian heritage, provide models of courage and sacrifice to people of all ages, and establish a tradition of sharing your gratefulness with one another, which will build a legacy of memories for the future.
