The deepest (and most honest) “thanksgiving”

Check out these thoughts on this important day called “Thanksgiving Day Mythology” by Robert Two Bulls.

I call this day important not because of our cultural story of Thanksgiving.  That’s what Robert is addressing.  I call this day important because it has the potential, I emphasize has the potential to lead disciples of Jesus to think about what we’re really thankful for.  And it’s not how many possessions I have as opposed to my brother or whatever.  It’s a deep thankfulness for the God who made us, a thankfulness for life itself, a desire to honor and value that life through cherishing our relationship with all that God has made, and celebrating that Jesus continues to lead us out of darkness and into the light of truth.

May Christians look beyond our culture and courageously lead the way to a deeper, more meaningful thankfulness in our world.
