400 Years of Thanksgivings


As we approach the end of another year of unprecedented tribulations, it is important to acknowledge and be thankful for the good in our lives.

This year importantly marks the 400th anniversary of our country’s first Thanksgiving. It was during the fall harvest of 1621. The sojourners came to a new land, made peace, and broke bread with the native population during the first Thanksgiving meal.

Despite the highs and lows our country has experienced over the many years, we are still a country that prides itself on freedom and opportunity for all. This Thanksgiving, take note of where we have come from, and look ahead with a heart of gratitude for all the good in our lives and be optimistic in what lies ahead of us.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. — Psalm 107:1
