This Thanksgiving, I'm grateful for a small country church and its big-hearted members.We first learned of Silver Lake Church of the Bible (Silver Lake, Oregon) from a simple letter. The story Pastor Leon Baker shared in that letter started in 2006.After listening to a Focus broadcast, “The Lord laid it upon my heart to begin collecting for the purchase of an ultrasonic machine,” he wrote.And for eight years, that's what Pastor Baker and his congregation did.The post WATCH: How This Church's Gift Saves Lives appeared first on Jim Daly.
“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!” (I Chronicles 16:34)It's a wonderful thing to live in a nation that, once a year, sets aside an official day of thanksgiving. We certainly are a blessed people, and there is much to give thanks for. I hope you and your family are enjoying the day.If you are looking for something to do with your family that will emphasize the themes of thanksgiving, forgiveness and friendship, may I suggest listening to today's broadcast, “Squanto: A Thanksgiving Drama”?The post Happy Thanksgiving! appeared first on Jim Daly.
