CHAPLAIN'S CORNER: Children and Thanksgiving

  • Thursday, November 28, 2013

As the kindergarten students presented the program about the journey of the Mayflower and the first Thanksgiving, I felt gratitude for tradition.

Although every generation has learned the history of the early Pilgrims, we find great joy in seeing children experience it anew.

The pleasure of parents and grandparents hearing the familiar lines enhances the meaning and depth of the season.

Children dressing as special characters and singing their hearts out warms spirits and refocuses divided attention.

“Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger” (Psalm 8:2).

Children and gratitude for holiday traditions
