ANdover 6448 Pastor Finds Much For Which to Be Thankful We can be thankful that we still t know how to have thankful hearts said Dr Clarence Reidenbach pastor of the First Congregational Church preaching a Thanksgiving message last night on the subject Thanks Be to God Religion is full of thanksgiving he said There are some who say that religion springs out of ignor ance and fear and ignorance and fear have gone into the making of it but it certainly springs also from the full heart that cannot contain its gladness at the thought of the good ness of God The Bible is full of the stories of songs praises and joy ful prayers of thqnks It tells of the joyful radiance of the Christian re ligion England has its Harvest Home The Pilgrim bequeathed us our Thanksgiving Day NOT ALWAYS PROSPEROUS The thanksgiving of our forefa thers did not always come out of times of prosperity The Jews had a hard time in the world The early Christians had a hard time Jesus did and yet he gave thanks at the last supper on the night that he was betrayed The Pilgrims had had a hard time in the years before our first Thanksgiving Day and their first harvest was simply what they got from about 21 acres of cleared ground We arc too likely tothink that we do not have much to be thank ful for It is a good thing for us to have a great day that makes us re call to mind the blessings we have We arc alive We may have looked forward into the year with fear and trembling but here we are We may have been reduced to 1he ne cessities so far as possessions are concerned but we can have those necessities and a richer inner life is open to all of us who will take the trouble to win it I have looked over some the thanksgiving proc lamations of the past They have come from both hard times and prosperous times Some of them came from the days of the war People found things to be thankful for even then Some of them came from the days when we thought that we were entering a period of unlimited prosperity They called at tention to the soul dangers of ma terial prosperity One may very well hold the conviction that the days of our chastening will prove to be good for the soul of America Were our souls any better off in 1928 than they are now Were we really any happier in 1928 than we are now THANKFUL FOR COURAGE We can be thankful that we still know how to have thankful hearts We can be thankful for courage We can be thankful that we are living in a creative age when we have a chance to make a new world that will be a little more like the kingdom of God We can be thank ful for our faith We know that we shall be delivered We do not know just what road we are going to take but we know that there will be a way There is always a way That is just as sure as that there is a God and a future Let us not be defeatists Let us master our doubts and our fears Let us keep our hearts high Let us look to God whence cometh our help Thanks be to God Berkeley Sets Date for Feast of Yuletide Pageant BERKELEY Nov for the children of Berkeley annual Municipal Christmas Party when youngsters of the city will gather about a huge Christmas tree and greet Kris Kringle in person has been
