As we approach Thanksgiving Day, Ken and Deb welcome historian Bill Federer to the show to talk about the importance of keeping the story of why we celebrate the holiday alive. Learn more about the treacherous times of the Pilgrims and who they placed their trust in as they landed in this new land. Bill leads us in a look back to appreciate the blessings of today and the God who has given us freedom in this land on this eve of Thanksgiving Day!
As we count our blessings this week, let’s pause to remember those brothers and sisters in Christ who are enduring persecution and hardship. Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs shares the latest news and prayer requests from the persecuted church. Even as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day at home with family and friends, Todd tells us how we can care for Christians driven from their homes this season.
