Holiday Favorites from Choirs
Don’t you just love this time of year here in Huron, Ohio?The beautiful colors of leaves have ebbed as the greendrained away and revealed the rainbow beneath.The crisp, cool breeze invigorates especially when thesunshine beams. The season of Thanks-giving which por-tends Advent and Christmas that’s coming.But Thanksgiving may be the best because it’s not bur-dened down with nearly the commercial trappings thatcan cover up the celebration of Christ’s birth.Although we are naturally thankful on happy days,thanksgiving can be even more meaningful when the dark clouds roll in. But some of us even carry our own dark clouds around with us, don’t we?I overheard a couple talking the other day. One observed,“Wow! What a gorgeous day God has given us today” andthe second person shot back without hesitation, “Yeah, butit’s gonna rain tomorrow.”Some of us see the fall colors as only predictors of a harshwinter to come; and dead leaves falling to the cold, coldearth. Instead of enjoying the change of seasons and thewondrous circle of life.On the rst Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims and NativeAmericans sat down together as a tragic winter had past –the future was anything but certain. However, they pausedto give thanks.George Washington proclaimed the rst nationalThanksgiving in celebration of a new birth of freedomthat was in no way assured to last. However, he and thenation paused and gave thanks.Abraham Lincoln re-instituted the holiday toward theend of the bloody, horrible, divisive Civil War, as an in-credible act of faith. He and the nation also gave thanks.What amazing statements of hope. Renewed throughoutthe years, especially during uncertain times, such as im-mediately after World War II: “Thanksgiving Day, 1944 -By the President of the United States of America – a proc-lamation:“In this year of liberation, which has seen so many mil-lions freed from tyrannical rule, it is tting that we givethanks with special fervor to our Heavenly Father for themercies we have received individually and as a nation andfor the blessings he has restored,…for the unity of spiritwhich has kept our nation strong; for our abiding faith infreedom; and for our abiding faith in freedom; and for thepromise of an enduring peace, we should lift up our heartsin thanksgiving…we should give united thanks to God.“To the end that we may bear more earnest witness to ourgratitude to Almighty God, I suggest a nationwide readingof the holy scriptures during the period from Thanks-giving Day to Christmas…I call upon the people of theUnited States to observe it…by offering to God our de-vout gratitude for his goodness…Franklin D. Roosevelt.”No doubt one of those scriptures read was our favoritePsalm 100:“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presencewith singing.Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us, andwe are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts withpraise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.“For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever,and his faithfulness to all generations.” (NRSV)For what are you especially thankful this holiday? Takesome time around your Thanksgiving table between theturkey and football, to share with your family and friends.Talk about traditions. Tell stories and humorous antidotes.Don’t leave out the children and youths. You’ll learn a lotabout one another and deepen your “attitude of gratitude”,enlighten everyone and give you a whole new perspectiveupon Thanks-giving. A blessed holiday to you and yours,Rev. Roger Skelley-Watts, Huron United MethodistChurch.
