  • Annual psalm of thanksgiving

    Dear God,

    It’s that time of year when I sit down to compose my annual psalm of thanksgiving. This will be my 16th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithfulness to me.

    This past year has been difficult in so many ways. At times I’ve felt like a dog’s chew toy, eaten up and slobbered on. I’ve felt pulled and pushed, stretched and torn.

  • Give Thanks

    Complaining makes us miserable, while a positive and thankful person is a great witness in this world.

    Our light shines for the Lord when we are thankful. The Apostle Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18,”Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  This is a good scripture for us at Thanksgiving.

    Let me share three simple thoughts about thanksgiving:  We have it so good, we enjoy it so much and we express it so little.

  • A word on Thanksgiving

    By Terry Mills

    This week, our family and friends will gather around the dinner table, as they have for generations, to celebrate a holiday that is nearing its 400th anniversary.

    As even some of our youngest students can tell us, what is widely considered to be America’s first Thanksgiving took place in 1621, when the Pilgrims and a tribe of Native Americans came together for a three-day feast to give thanks for a successful harvest.

  • Reinvent your Thanksgiving feast

    Many people would sum up their Thanksgiving experience by saying, “it was a feast.” However, with most feasts there is the potential for leftovers and Thanksgiving is no different.

    Many of us are acquainted with leftover turkey sandwiches, turkey enchiladas and even turkey potpie. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests the following as a means of reinventing Thanksgiving leftovers:

    Prepare turkey soup. Boil the carcass and add diced sweet potatoes, green beans and other vegetables.
