    Thanksgiving should be at the heart of our celebration


    Think about how often in a day someone does something for you, however small. How often do you say thanks? Now think about how often God helps you in a day. Think about how much God has given you. How often do you say thanks to him? Thanksgiving is a celebration of the giver and the gift. We should celebrate often.

    God is not against celebration!

    He wants us to celebrate, but for the right reasons.

    Now don’t get me wrong, fall is always a beautiful time of the year.  Some showcase super-brilliant foliage.  Others are, well, more drab, with less splash and panache.  I would have to personally rank this fall as being a little less spectacular on the scale of falls I’ve experienced.

    Little did they realize the far-reaching impact of their action


    Mom and Dad both showed up at school for the performance.

     That was a real treat.  They could see their 7-year-old son in his grand one-line role as a pilgrim at the first Thanksgiving Day feast.  We all wore elaborate costumes made with construction paper, scissors, and paste.  Since this play was being performed in the school cafeteria/auditorium, the teacher instructed each of us to slip over to the tall floor microphone to say our lines.

    The debate that is raging in America is about truth


    Jesus Christ had a very interesting encounter with Pontius Pilate about credibility. Jesus said “Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice” John 18:37. And then Pilate asked, “What is truth?” John 18:38.
