Thanksgiving in the 90s

A brief time-out before the final installment in my Worship in the 80s series. . . .

A devotional program (not my own, but one I found worthy of retaining) from Thanksgiving Eve in 1995 proceeded as follows, with singing interspersed between items.  Perhaps readers can find something for personal, family, or congregational use here.

  1. A call to give thanks — 1 Chron 16:8-12
  2. Reasons for being thankful — Ps 107:1-9; 1Tim 1:12-18
  3. Living out thankfulness — Rom 6:15-18; 2Cor 9:6-11, Col 3:15-17
  4. A warning not to forget to be thankful — Deut 8:10-14b, 17-18; Rom 1:18-25
  5. A scene of worship in heaven — we will will give thanks — Rev 4, 1Cor 15:55-58

    This timely message is one to be shared with those who keep their eyes focused on the challenges in life…and overlook the blessings they have — we in America take so much for granted forgetting from Whom all blessings flow. Even here in Transylvania where Hungarians are a persecuted minority, and life is beyond difficult…many realize that they are blessed and give thanks to God.

      What you shared here about the minority Hungarians is encouraging. (Personally, what it takes these days for me to look beyond challenges toward blessings is not so encouraging.)
