New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 22, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung g Friday, November 22, 1996 □ 9AThanksgiving is a time of prayer, good food and family healing Thanksgiving Day is a day set aside each year for giving thanks to God for blessings received during the year. On this day, people give thanks with feasting and prayer. The first Thanksgivings in New England were harvest festivals, or days for thanking God for plentiful crops. For this reason, the holiday still takes place late in the fall, after the crops have been gathered. The very mention of Thanksgiving often calls up memories of kitchens and pantries crowded with good things to eat. Thanksgiving is also a time for serious religious thinking, church services and prayer. The First Thanksgiving observance in America was entirely religious and did not involve feasting. On Dec. 4, 1619, a group of 38 English settlers arrived at Berkeley Plantation, on the James River near what is now Charles City, Va. The group’s charter required that the day of arrival be observed yearly to give thanks to God. The first Thanksgiving in New England was celebrated in Plymouth less than a year after the Plymouth colonists had Msgr.    settled in CHwawfl    America. The buWdiu    first dreadful BHV    winter in *    Massachusetts had killed about half the members of the colony. But new hope arose in the summer of 1621. The settlers expected a good com harvest, despite poor crops of peas, wheat and barley. Thus, in early Guest Column autumn, Gov. William Bradford arranged a harvest festival to give thanks to God for the progress the colony had made. The festival lasted three days. About 90 Indians also attended the festival. They brought five deer to add to the feast. Similar harvest Thanksgivings were held in Plymouth the next several years, but no traditional date was set. The custom of Thanksgiving Day spread from Plymouth to other New England colonies. During the Revolutionary War, eight special days of thanks were observed for victories and for being saved from dangers. In 1789, George Washington issued a general proclamation naming Nov. 26 a day of national thanksgiving. In the same year, the Protestant Episcopal Church announced that the first Thursday in November would be a regular yearly day for giving thanks. For many years, the country had no regular national Thanksgiving Day. But some states had a yearly Thanksgiving holiday. Then Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November 1863, as “a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father.” Each year afterward, for 75 years, the president formally proclaimed that Thanksgiving should be celebrated on the last Thursday of November. But in 1939, Franklin D. Roosevelt set it one week earlier. He wanted to help business by lengthening the shopping period before Christmas. Congress ruled that after 1941 the fourth Thursday of November would be observed as Thanksgiving Day and would be a legal federal holiday. This year Nov. 28 is set aside as a day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God for all the material and spiritual blessings bestowed upon us during the past year. Families take this opportunity to come together to strenghten family love, joys and all sources that they have to keep them united in the bond of family spirit. One great source of unity and strength is used by families troubled by a separation caused by arguments, misunderstandings and various other problems. This gathering of families is used as a means of reconciliation and forgiveness to restore the love and unity shattered by human weakness and neglect of living according to God’s standards for family unity. One powerful source for the observance of Thanskgiving for family unity is the Thanksgiving Day meal. In the family prayer before the meal take the time to recall the besssings of the past year by allowing every member seated at the table to share verbally his or her blessings with the other members. “This is the day the Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it” and be grateful to God not only today „ but every day because each day is filled with God’s blessings granted to us for the increase of the bond of unity, joy and peace in our families. A prayer for your use on Thanksgiving Day that demonstrates our gratitude to God may bear fruit in loving service to our fellow men ami women is: “Father all powerful, your gifts of love are countless and your goodness infinite. On Thanksgiving Day we come before you with gratitude for your kindness: open our hearts to concern for our fellow men and women, so that we may share your gifts in loving service. Amen."
