A Unifying Tradition

A Unifying Tradition

Weekly Column

Each year in the United States of America, we observe the special tradition of coming together around a table of food to reflect on our blessings. Especially during a time of great division and polarization, it is important for Americans to join in collective gratitude this year.

This unique American tradition is ages old, even predating the birth of our nation. As we remember, the very first Thanksgiving feast took place centuries ago in 1621 at Plymouth Rock, when the Pilgrims celebrated a bountiful harvest after experiencing devastating trials and loss. The resilience of the Pilgrims in dire circumstances and their providential partnership with Native Americans still serves as a reminder of divine provision. Indeed, that same favor has carried us through many challenges in our nation’s history and brought us together in gratitude time and again.
