The Foundation for Thanksgiving

November 18, 2019

The Foundation for Thanksgiving Do you have a favorite coffee mug? I have a few that are special to me. Even though they are scratched and chipped, I still pick them first. They have always done their job of delivering my beloved morning coffee or tea. Near the beginning of his letter to the Corinthians, Paul attempts to convince his readers...

Gates of Thanksgiving

March 10, 2020

Gates of Thanksgiving At one time in church history, ordinary Christians didn’t sing. Instead, they listened while sacred music was performed by professionals. But thanks to the Reformation and the invention of the printing press, congregational singing made a comeback. The first hymnal was printed in 1532. Simple, singable tunes and sturdy...

Worship and the Expression of Thanksgiving Ann Voskamp, a farmer’s wife and mother of six, wrote the bestselling book, One Thousand Gifts, where she chronicles how keeping a gratitude journal and counting God’s blessings transformed her. "Thanksgiving is inherent to a true salvation experience; thanksgiving is necessary to live the well,...

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for Faith and Love

May 10, 2013

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for Faith and Love Our survey of prayer in the New Testament is organized by categories—intercession, thanksgiving, worship, and petition. But the savvy reader will notice that these categories are fluid and often overlap. Prayer can morph from lament into praise as in so many of the Psalms. And it can move from thanksgiving...

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for the Christians of Philippi

May 11, 2013

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for the Christians of Philippi Paul started most letters with words of thanksgiving, but few of his introductory remarks have as much joy and enthusiasm as the first chapter of Philippians. He had a special place in his heart for the church in Philippi because of the way they affirmed and supported his ministry. The...

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for Faith and Strength

May 12, 2013

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for Faith and Strength Prison isn’t exactly the place you would expect to hear songs of praise and thanksgiving, but that’s what we find in Ephesians 1. We don’t know exactly where Paul was when he wrote this letter to the church at Ephesus—under house arrest in Rome seems to be the general consensus—but we do know...

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for the Way Christ Enriches Lives

May 9, 2013

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for the Way Christ Enriches Lives A 2011 survey by the United States Postal Service indicated that the typical American home receives a personal letter—not including greeting cards or invitations—once every seven weeks. It was once every two weeks as recently as 1987. A stream of advertisements still arrives; but personal...

Devotion for Nov. 26, 2009 Over 147 years ago, on October 3, 1863, Abraham Lincoln stated: "The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies.

Every Day Is Thanks Giving

November 28, 2019

Every Day Is Thanks Giving Sometimes I get so full at Thanksgiving dinner I skip dessert. This is unfortunate because the end of the meal with its pumpkin pie and whipped cream is one of the best parts. The vision John describes at the end of the book of Revelation is definitely one that sparks thanksgiving. He begins by seeing the Holy City,...

October 2, 2005

Devotion for October 02, 2005 Pastor Rich Clement’s twenty-something daughter was going through a very difficult time. She had a good job and close friends, but life clearly wasn’t what she’d hoped it would be. One day, in her weekly call home, she asked her dad what his “secret” was to being happy. He replied simply, “The key to life is...
