The Awkwardness of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love it for all kinds of reasons:
•It is the most unsullied holiday of the year.
•It always lands on the same day of the week thus insuring a predictable, extra-long weekend.
•I like the food and I love leftovers…especially Costco’s Pumpkin Pie.
•The sports aren’t bad.

But maybe my favorite thing about this holiday is that it forces our country annually to grapple with the existence of God. The very name of the holiday assumes an object of our thanks. We cannot have “Thanksgiving” unless we concede that there is someone, somewhere, who deserves to be the recipient of our thanks. Those who want to skirt the obvious religious implications will speak about being “grateful.” But it’s still a dodge. Grateful to whom?

In short, I love Thanksgiving because it compels everyone, the religious and the irreligious alike, to grapple with the question, “Why do I enjoy the good things I have in a world with so much less? Why am I embarrassingly blessed in so many ways while the vast majority of the world lives at a subsistence level? Why can I enjoy a peaceful gathering with those I love most while millions live in hiding and horror?”

At its core, Thanksgiving is a theological lesson on grace. Americans come to admit that everything we have and enjoy is a gift. And gift-givers deserve to be thanked. Especially The Gift-giver.

One more reason I like this holiday is our Thanksgiving service. I hope you will join me and my family tonight at 7:00 as we declare our gratitude to our gracious God.
Ps 107:22 “And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.”

-Pastor Sanders


I like routine. Routine is safe. Routine is secure. I know what to expect when everything is routine.

But I have to take the time to ask myself, ”is it possible that I have traded being alive for simply living life?” Maybe you have found yourself in the same place. Where every day you wake up at the same time, eat the same breakfast, go to the same workplace, do the same job, drive the same commute, eat the same dinner, have the same conversations, go to sleep at the same time. Just to do it again tomorrow.

Is this the extent of our Christian life? Or, is our life about something more, about someone more. When we accepted Christ as our Savior, He set us in a new direction with a purpose (Ephesians 2). You find fulfillment when you fellowship with Christ. You realize the blessing it is just being able to talk to Him, to be close to Him.

Christ tells us in Matthew “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness…” Our priority should be on seeking God in every move we make, but it is easy to lose focus. The routine of life can become overwhelming. Even to the point that we feel like we are trapped in our same rut. We live life preoccupied, distracted, pushed and pulled in every direction other than toward God. It may not be intentional but every moment we are not actively pursuing God and His will, we are drifting away from Him. Sadly the longer that we drift away the more calloused we become. Even to the point that we become used to the callousness, used to making decisions and choices without even thinking of Christ.

It’s time to get fed up with simply living life. It’s time to do something about your life. It’s time to “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness…” You are the only one who can make the decision to follow passionately after our great Savior. You are the only one that can be the salt and light of the Gospel to your friends, co-workers, neighbors and family. God has placed you exactly where you are to make an eternal impact. You are not in your house to be comfortable; you are there so your neighbors have a chance to hear how to be saved! You are not friends with your friends so you can laugh and hang out; God has placed your friends in your life so they could see Christ in you!

The only way that you will have an impact on the world is to be different from the world. Begin with your personal relationship with Christ, grow that closeness. God desires closeness even more than you. Once you begin saying “yes” to Christ and “no” to yourself, your routine and ordinary life will become extraordinary and anything but routine.
