Letter To The Editor…THANKSGIVING

Many know little or no about our European ancestors, the Pilgrims, to whom the primary Thanksgiving is attributed. These have been the primary Christian households to choose the East coast of America.

Opposite to modern-day educating, the principle goal the Pilgrims got here to America was not non secular freedom. They’d already gained non secular freedom twelve years earlier, in 1608, after they fled England for Holland to flee the acute persecution from a tyrannical King James I.

They wrote their purpose for settling in America within the Mayflower Compact: “…for the glory of God and development of the Christian religion…” The Compact was the premise of consultant authorities in America and known as the inspiration stone of American liberty.

The Pilgrims got here to America to arrange a whole nation for the aim of glorifying God and advancing the Christian religion. This assertion united authorities with a accountability to God and left a plan for future generations to observe that has led to extra liberty, prosperity, and pleasure to our nation than some other political philosophy in some other nation within the historical past of the world! That’s one thing to be pleased about.

The primary nationwide Thanksgiving occurred in 1789 when instantly after approving the Invoice of Rights, a decision by Congress was delivered to President George Washington who heartily concurred by declaring:

“Whereas it’s the responsibility of all nations to acknowledge the windfall of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be pleased about His advantages, and humbly to implore His safety and favor. … Now, subsequently, I do appoint Thursday, the twenty sixth day of November 1789 … that we might all unite to render unto Him our honest and humble thanks for His variety care and safety.”

For years, America has delivered from numerous perils, obtained many victories and blessings, prospered past any nation, and shortly everybody envied the “American Dream” that God had given to persevering People.

Like our founding fathers, and early colonists, allow us to give due to God for America’s unimaginable founding and pray that our authorities would by no means relinquish its God-given responsibility to protect our rights.

Thanksgiving at all times was and shall perpetually be about thanking God for our blessings.
