President George Washington issued the first National Day Thanksgiving in 1779 when he wrote:
“Whereas, it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; Whereas, both the houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me ‘to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness!’ Now, therefore, I do recommend next, to be devoted by the people of the states to the service of that great and glorious being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be, that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country.”
The focus this Sunday will be on Thanksgiving. We will resume our study on the supernatural spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12 the following Sunday, November 27th.
This Wednesday Night’s Bible Study is canceled as are the women’s and men’s studies Thursday. We pray y’all have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.
“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!”(1 Chronicles 16:34)
