The Great Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is an interesting holiday in America. I believe early in school, I was told that it was a time remembering when the people who lived the Americas and Europeans came together to share a meal. As I grew up, I learned of the nation's attempt at recounting how the holiday started. When the United States was still young, George Washington called for an official day of public thanksgiving and prayer. Thomas Jefferson decided that having a national day of Thanksgiving to a higher power was not appropriate due to the separation of church and state.

Living It Out

McKnight and Miller focus on, "What is the Bible?" for their seventh lesson. In the McKnight portion quoting Blue Parakeet, he suggests that

Rest

As I have had the pleasure of working with youth and young adults, I find more and more there is one overbearing problem facing them in their daily life: lack of rest. I feel that as I have been listening to people in conversation, the stereotype for the younger generations is they don't work enough or hard enough. I think the new reality for our upcoming generations, Generation Z and beyond, is busyness. I am dubbing this the Age of Go. Everything is going all the time. The demand on our youth is they need to be going just as hard and just as much. Forbes had an article describing how millennials are taking fewer vacations day, but equally, power gave information showing the average Americ
