The Pilgrims Gave Thanks—Despite a Multitude of Difficulties

Jerry Newcombe BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS 0 Comments

Jerry Newcombe, D.Min. 11/22/17 With another Thanksgiving upon us, it’s good to consider what the Pilgrims endured and how they thanked God through it all. I just finished reading a phenomenal book on the group of dissident Christians who founded Plymouth in 1620. Historian Rod Gragg wrote The Pilgrim Chronicles: An Eyewitness history of the Pilgrims and the Founding of Plymouth Colony (Regnery History, 2014). I thought I knew a lot about the Pilgrims, but …

By Tim Brown President Donald Trump, in a manner much like his predecessors, issued his Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, and unlike the previous usurper of the White House, he recounted our history and why Thanksgiving came to be. Thank you for this reminder, Mr. President.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone… take time and bless the Lord, who despite our rebelliousness has continued to provide for us.  Let us repent before Him and cry out for His mercy to …

Learning to be a Thanks-giver

Onan Coca BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

By Onan Coca Several Thanksgivings ago, I wrote a piece about how I was learning to be a Thanks-giver. I’ve learned much since that Thanksgiving in 2011 (the dad of 3 kids has to be constantly learning), but this article still describes what I feel Thanksgiving really is. It’s the week of Thanksgiving, one of our most important American holidays, and a writer would be remiss to not write about this important day.  Several hundred …

THANK YOU LORD for THANKSGIVING!

Lyle Rapacki BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

Four years ago my article: “Thank You Lord for Thanksgiving!” appeared in The Olive Branch Report.  Many responded wonderfully from across the country, and even shared their own stories of giving thanks. This year we have all the more reason to give thanks to the Lord God of All Creation for the myriad blessings in each of our lives; and for the blessings that can still be seen and named in our Nation.  I pray …

How to Have a Thrifty Thanksgiving Dinner

Daisy Luther FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

By Daisy Luther Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of gratitude when you get together with the people you love and give thanks for what you have. But like every other holiday, it has become a retail frenzy and a day for which people spend hundreds of dollars on one single meal to host an epic Thanksgiving dinner. Stop that! You shouldn’t have to spend an entire month’s grocery budget on a lavish dinner …

Sometimes When He Speaks

John Miltenberger BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

By John Miltenberger 11/3/2017 I was blessed to sit in church Wednesday, 11/1/2017, and hear my son-in-law and my daughter give their testimony. That alone is a situation to be envied by many, and I was well aware of it! But the point of this essay is found in what they said, and how God spoke through them, because it’s important to train our ears to recognize His voice. Through the years I’ve heard God …

Financial Problems: The Most Likely Disaster to Strike Anyone

Daisy Luther ECONOMY, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, PREPPING, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 Comments

By Daisy Luther Preppers think about a lot of doomy, gloomy stuff about various types of apocalypses. After all, disaster is everywhere. We watch the spread of pandemics, like the pneumonic plague and Ebola. We prepare for hurricanes and wildfires. We keep our eye on events that could turn into episodes of civil unrest, watch the weather for pending snow storms, and have kits to see us through power outages. Every prepper knows about the terrifying threat of an EMP and many of us are well …
