Happy Thanksgiving

If your family is like ours, you have gathered together today to share a meal and give thanks for the year.  It is a great American tradition dating back to the founding of our country by the Puritans.  Those brave souls who fled the persecution of their faith to be able to live in relationship with Christ without the dictates of a State Religious system.
Remember today the reason we give thanks and the history behind it.
Their choice to flee to a distant land via a sea voyage that was fraught with peril, was a choice driven by the desire to worship Christ freely.  They fled persecution and suffering through a real possibility of death to come to a land where they had no resources other than what they could glean from the land.  Many died in the process.

Remember today the reason they left, the reason they came, and what has transpired in the land in which they settled.
