2021 marks the 400th anniversary of a special American tradition. Four centuries ago, during the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims sat down with their new Native American friends and celebrated the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts. On Wednesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Jerry Newcombe, executive director of Providence Forum, joins us to share that as Americans, despite all our difficulties, we have much to be thankful for. And we have enjoyed this Thanksgiving tradition for 400 years.
Your heart may be full of joy during the holiday season, but your bank account may not be. The holiday expenses are notorious for adding up quickly – from the food and drinks to the traveling and gifts. Author and host of the Boundless Show, Lisa Anderson joins Wednesday’s Mornings with Eric and Brigitte and asks, “Why do we feel this obligation to give gifts to everyone? You can cut out the clutter and consolidate during the holidays to not break the bank. Think about giving experiences, family gifts or the skills you have.”
Dr. Jerry Newcombe is the executive director of Providence Forum, an outreach of Coral Ridge Ministries Media (D. James Kennedy Ministries) where he also serves as senior producer (TV), columnist, and author. He has also written or co-written 23 books, including The Book That Made America: How the Bible Formed Our Nation and (with D. James Kennedy), What If Jesus Had Never Been Born? His views are his own.
Lisa Anderson is the director of young adults for Focus on the Family and host of the Boundless Show. She is the author of The Dating Manifesto and hosts The Boundless Show", a national radio program and weekly podcast, where she leads discussions on timely issues, interviews authors, artists and other newsmakers, facilitates Q&A and volunteers far too much information from her personal life.
