Sermon: Thanksgiving

I read on a ministers’ internet blog this week that Thanksgiving is one of the hardest days to preach.  The reason is because everyone knows what you’re going to say.

Come on, admit it, what do you think will be preached at Thanksgiving?  Yep, “Be grateful for all that you have.”  And the ministerial-like add-on is “because it all comes from God.”

And there you have it.

So what’s new?

If you consult one of my favourite sources – the internet – a search of “Gratitude and Happiness” uncovers many studies that link the two.  It turns out that people who had a grateful disposition had better health, exercised more, felt that life was better and had more optimism than the group without grateful dispositions.
