Thoughts on Our National Day of Thanksgiving–2014

From Excerpts of  a Few Early National Thanksgiving Proclamations
Highlighting the Duty and the Observance of the Day

November 1, 1777
A National Thanksgiving Day Proclamation
By the Continental Congress

Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of; and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common providence, but also smile upon us in the prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success.

October 3, 1789
Thanksgiving Proclamation
By George Washington, President of the United States of America 

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor.

January 1, 1795
A Day of Public Thanksgiving
By George Washington, President of the United States of America

In such a state of things it is in an especial manner our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God and to implore Him to continue and confirm the blessings we experience.

March 23, 1798
A Proclamation
By John Adams, President of the United States of America

As the safety and prosperity of nations ultimately and essentially depend on the protection and blessing of Almighty God; and the national acknowledgment of this truth is not only an indispensable duty which the people owe to Him, but a duty whose natural influence is favorable to the promotion of that morality and piety, without which social happiness cannot exist, nor the blessings of a free government be enjoyed; and as this duty, at all times incumbent, is so especially in seasons of difficulty and of danger, when existing or threatening calamities, the just judgments of God against prevalent iniquity are a loud call to repentance and reformation; and as the United States of America are at present placed in a hazardous and afflictive situation, by the unfriendly disposition, conduct and demands of a foreign power, evinced by repeated refusals to receive our messengers of reconciliation and peace, by depredations on our commerce, and the infliction of injuries on very many of our fellow citizens, while engaged in their lawful business on the seas: —Under these considerations it has appeared to me that the duty of imploring the mercy and benediction of Heaven on our country, demands at this time a special attention from its inhabitants.

Church Parking Lot

The sinkhole discovered last Sunday in our parking lot has been determined to actually be a cistern measuring 6 to 4 feet in diameter and being at least 15 feet deep.  An early city map shows a small structure sitting on that very site back in the 1920’s.  Since the water line under Washington St. was installed in 1901, the cistern, which is nicely stoned, probably dates back to the earliest days of Lead.  It will be uncapped and filled when things dry up, but in the mean time a steel plate covers the main area of concern.  Thanks for everyone’s cooperation while we waited to hear exactly what was there, and a special thanks to Homestake for their work in determining what it was.
