Do you know these two important facts about Thanksgiving? After the victory of the Battle of Saratoga during the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress proclaimed the first National Day of Thanksgiving, on November 1, 1777. After the U.S. Congress passed the First Amendment, it requested President George Washington issue a National Day of Thanksgiving, which he did, on October 3, 1789. On Thursday join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte when author and radio host, William J. Federer shares more interesting details about the first Thanksgiving.
The opposite of grumbling over what we don't have is gratitude for what we do have. How do we change course from grumbling to gratitude? Maybe we don't understand the seriousness of grumbling? In Philippians 2:14, it says, "Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world." On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, host of the Boundless Show, Lisa Anderson talks to us about the steps we can take to change our habits from grumbling to gratitude.

How have we, as American Christians, missed ministering to these people with just 4% of Native Americans professing to know Jesus Christ?
