November 29, 2020


The trench warfare of World War I was brutal.  Thousands of young men were slaughtered as each side fought for inches of ground.  Most men who tried to go “over the top” were immediately shot.  Also, gas was used to seep into every nook and cranny of the trenches, eating men alive.

On Christmas Eve, 1914, some Germans emerged from the trenches, saying to the British across “No Man’s Land,” “Frohlich Weihnachten” (Merry Christmas).  The Englishmen thought it was a trick, but when they saw that the Germans were unarmed, they got out of their trenches and began shaking hands with the Germans.  Soon gifts were exchanged and the two sides sang Christmas carols.  They even played a game of soccer.  The commanders finally put a stop to the festivities, but it filled the soldiers with a sense of hope that man could be civil again.  The songs, gifts and handshakes were also tangible ways of expressing thanksgiving to God.

No matter what warfare is going on in our government, our homes or our hearts, showing tangible thanksgiving to God will always provide a sense of hope.  This Thanksgiving let acts of kindness towards others express thanks to God.

Sunday I’m preaching on “Thank God Tangibly” from Hebrews 13:15-21 wherein we’ll learn to 1) “Thank God with Your Lips” (verse 15), 2) “Thank God by Doing Good” (verses 16-19) and 3) “Thank God by Pleasing God” (verses 20-21).  It will be the first day of advent.  We’ll light the Hope Candle.  My hope is that God will give you great holidays in which you’ll perform acts of kindness toward God and others as a means of expressing thanks for all that God has done and will do for you.

Remember that Wednesday, November 25, 2020, Thanksgiving Eve, we have no Bible Studies at the church.  I will be livestreaming devotions Tuesday through Saturday mornings, including Thanksgiving, at 10:00 on Facebook.  Sunday we’ll meet live and livestream Sunday School at 9:00 with worship at 10:30.  When we participate, we will be tangibly thanking God!
