ESN Blog: The First Thanksgiving

Posted by tom | Nov 28, 2013

The First Thanksgiving: What Makes Good History?* At the very least don't miss the animated short of Timmy's exploration of "The First Thanksgiving" -- my kids love it :)

Yes, I am encouraging you to take the time to intentionally "set the table" for larger conversations regarding who we are, where we came from, and where we're headed. Let's press on in establishing a proper relationship to the "real story" of Thanksgiving and the Big Story of God's work in the midst of this important celebration which spills over into Advent. Don't let Black Friday (and it's push against both celebrations) disrupt the joy and beauty of drawing close to the One who reigns over all of creation and came to us as a baby in order to sacrifice His life to be our Savior. To God be the glory!
