As we approach Thanksgiving 2021

Georgia's first Thanksgiving Proclamation

The final happy result of - the end of a clash of empires, a religious revolution, and the work of Christian visionaries.

Hello and Sisters, Brothers, and fellow Georgians,

Do you believe that God was conspicuously involved in the founding of Georgia? Bet you didn't know, bet if you are a Christian, you will be surprised to read General James Oglethorpe's "Order for a Day of public Thanksgiving to Almighty God". The first order of a Thanksgiving Day to be held in Georgia before it became a national holiday 120 years later. Bet you didn't know the significance attached to the reason for the Thanksgiving Day by notable religious leaders and historians alike. Bet the description of the event will awe you and will agree that God was indeed involved in this event. But …I really bet you've never heard the religious inferences about this before and all the other Christian Influence in the founding of Georgia. Neither had I, …wonder why? (sarcasm intended). But you can start by getting a glimpse today by viewing pages 76 and 77 of Georgia's first Thanksgiving Proclamation through this link .And I will be adding more glimpses of Christian Heritage in the founding of Georgia throughout this Thanksgiving week through my ebook "Pilgrims in Georgia".

May God Bless,
