Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

                        As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with our turkeys, stuffing and mashed potatoes, ACOOTAK AND DRY FISH and pumpkin pies, I pray that all of us will be truly thankful for family, friends, and having our needs met.  May we all remember those less fortunate.   The Thanksgiving Food Drive on November 23, 2010 went well thanks to Jessie and Fay Romer.  Seven Food baskets with robust looking frozen Turkeys, all the trimings, fresh vegetables, fruit, and desert was given out as an expression of God’s love and our love to people around Anchorage. So too, may God help us to remember that Thanksgiving should be more than a once-a-year celebration–Thanksgiving is a state of mind. God calls us to be Thanksgiving people–people who have an attitude of gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving Everybody from the Anchorage Moravian Church Leadership and Membership. A Thanksgiving Prayer:    Heavenly Father on this Day we remember that Christ is the Lord of our Lives.  We are thankful for the redemptive plan of salvation offered by your son.  Today we are thankful for justification, for sanctification and for all the spiritual blessings you have given us through the Bible, through our fellowship with other believers and through the gifts and empowerment … Continue reading
