Even though we associate the beginning of Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims, it wasn't until  "1863 that Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November a 'day of Thanksgiving and Praise,' making annual an inconsistent national tradition. George Washington had issued two Thanksgiving proclamations, in 1789 and 1795; Thomas Jefferson zero. Some states had celebrated Thanksgiving, while others had not. Even the dates of celebration had differed."
 
This week we take the opportunity to gather as friends and families for a day of giving thanks and probably eating too much.  However, it is important to remember that Thanksgiving has been celebrated in our country in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of peace and in times of war (even civil war), in times of celebration and in times of despair; in times of division in the church and in times of unity in the church.
 
Have a blessed time of giving thanks!
