lives on In the Immortal Pilgrim of
his prison-day dream.
Our Lord and Savior glorified
the Father In His clad acceptance
of Ills way for Him: "Neverthe
less, not My will but Thine be
done," and He thus prepared a
way for the Father to deliver Him
evermore from the panes of death
and sin and us all. weak sons of
men. In Him.
Let us rejoice In His way what
ever It may be for us and wherever
It may lead us. knowing "all things

Trom Plymouth to the Golden Gate
today their children tread.
The mercies ot that bounteous Hand
upon the land are shed;
The "flocks are on a thousand bills,"
the prairies wave with grain,
The cities spring like mushrooms
now where once was desert-plain.
Beap high the board with plenteous
cheer and gather to the feast,
And toast that sturdy Pilgrim band
whose courage never ceased.
Give praise to that All-Gracious One
by whom their steps were led,
And thanks unto the harvest's Lord,
who sends our "daily bread."

Unchanging Spirit
of Thanksgiving
Centuries have wrought changes
In the customs of Thanksgiving dnj
In America, but the spirit of the
occasion remnins the same, Wil
liam Herschell comments. In the
Indianapolis News. We may not
go over the woods to grnndmoth
ier's house in a one-horse open
i sleigh, owing to the fact that the
venernme gentleman anu gruim
mother have announced their In
tention of motoring to the city for
thanksgiving dinner In a hotel.
i There is not room for feasting in
la two-room apartment with kitch
enette, sucn as tneir cnuaren occu
py In the city; therefore the hotel
becomes the center of a family re
union. Dinner over, the ensemble
hies away to a movie or to a foot
ball game.
All this. In broad contrast with
the situation when Governor Brad-
Thanksgiving as
Sung by Psalmist
Whoso offereth the sacrifice of
; thanksgiving glorifleth Me; and pre
I pareth a way that I may show him
the salvation of God (R. V. margin).
Pa. L:23.
Thanksgiving, then. Is not only
of value in Itself, but it makes It
possible for God to do what He Is
all the time willing to do bring us
salvation, deliverance. It prepares
a way for God to work.
Let ns try and find out what the
Psalmist means by the sacrifice of
thanksgiving which glorifies God.
He has already In very dramatic
words said that It Is not the usual
animal sacrifices which constitute
the sacrifice of thanksgiving. "For
every beast of the forest is mine
and the cattle npon a thousand
hills. If I were hungry I would not
tell thee ; for the world is mine and
the fulness thereof. Will I eat the
flesh of bulls or drink the blood of
goats T Offer nnto God tbanksgiv-
tag"' (verses 10-14).
And with us It Is something
deeper than our outward gifts God
wants. So many Imagine they are
doing God a favor by contributing
ito His work, or giving subscrip
tions, often very generous ones, to
i this or that If It is not in these
outward things that the true sacrl
flee of rjralse consists, what is it?
Its essence Is the spirit of glad
! acceptance of God's gracious deal
ings with ns. The key of life is to
be found in that attitude. This is
the sacrifice of thanksgiving. In
stead of railing at fate, we see
behind things a loving Father, at
! times dealing severely with His
children, but always dealing lov
ingly. "Whom the Lord lovetb He
chasteneth, and scourgeth every
'son whom He recelveth."
Glad Acceptance of His Will.
Ro, confident in God's way, Paul
I and Silas could sing in the inner
imost prison. The groups of de
Ifenseless men and women In Nero's
i arena coming out of great tribula
tion, could sing, while the wild
'beasts were being loosened upon
them.
j As Madam Guyon In jail puts It
In "The Prison of the Lord":
' A little bird I am,
Bhut from the fields of air;
I And In my cage I sit and sing
' To Him who placed me there;
! Well pleased a prisoner to be.
iThls Is not merely a grudging ac
'ceptance of God's way, but it is
'with the heart and glorifies God.
! We need to be sure that the bur
den laid on us Is of God, and not
of our own negligence or folly, and
iwe need ever to be seeking health
land strength, the normal condition
iordalned for us of Ood. Bnt when,
Ibeyond our controlling or erecting,
grievous limitations constrict us,
Iwe do well to glorify God In the
'joyous spirit of Thanksgiving.
1 Attitude of Glorifying God.
I It is not only In trials that
'thanksgiving should be rendered.
; There is the stress and strain of a
task which taxes our powers, those
'powers which need continual exer
cise to make them grow. We glor
ify God bs we rejoice Ui that He
has called us to measure ourselves
against real tasks. We honor God
when we can thank Him for the
Hill Difficulty.
The sacrifice of thanksgiving,
then, is an attitude to life and to
God. It Is an attitude that glorifies
God since it gives Him credit for
working sensibly, with wisdom, and
according to gome plan. Wa ao
often deny to God the foresight
and wisdom we credit ourselves
with. We should or should not do
this or that because of some great
er plan we have In mind. Yet when
God brings things upon us, the full
purport of which we cannot grasp,
we so often plaintively lament His
shortness of vision. ' He bas spoilt
our plans md we forget His grand
er plan, sv Those who can rejoice
with thanksgivings of heart for
whatever He sends glorify God in
recognizing His Intelligent purpose.
Not only does the sacrifice of
thanksgiving glorify Me, says God,
but It prepares a way that I may
show him the salvation of God.
That Is if we have hearts that can
give God credit for acting sensibly
In His dealings with us, If we can
thank him even when there appears
to those who know not the Father's
care, only cause for bitter repin
ing, God can work out His will
through ns and for us. God can
show us His salvation, His way of
deliverance and growth. We are
in league with Him In His good
will for us and for the world.
Light Shines Most In Darkness.
The heart that can sing In the
dark Is assured of victory and de
liverance. There was John Bunyan
In Bedford jail. How thwarting it
seemed to God's purposes for him
as a preacher of the Gospel up and
down the land. Shall he accept
the Imprisonment for the sake of
God's revelation of truth as be bas
seen It?
"But if nothing," he writes, "will
do unless I make of my conscience
a continual butchery and slaughter
ship, unless, putting out my own
eyes, I commit me to the blind to
lead me, as I doubt not Is desired
by some, I have determined, the
Almighty God being my help and
shield, yet to suffer, if frail life
might continue so long, even till
the moss shall grow on my eye
brows, rather than thus to violate
my faith and principles." And bis
glad acceptance for the claim of
God made it possible for God to
ford of Massachusetts proclaimed
a day of thanksgiving and prayer
In 1621, the purpose being to thank
Providence for a harvest that had
been saved from marauding In
dians only through eternal vigi
lance and trusty rifles.
George Washington Is credited
with being the first President to
proclaim a day of thanksgiving.
The congress, in 1784, recommend
ed that a day be set apart for
prayerful expression of gratitude
because of the return of peace.
Washington again appointed such
a day in 1789, after the Constitu
tion bad been adopted. Still anoth
er period of rejoicing and prayer
was observed In 1795, based on the
many benefits derived from a good
harvest and growing prosperity.
The last Thursday in November
was the generally accepted day for
this expression of gratitude, and
President Madison followed Wash
ington's example in proclaiming a
day of thanksgiving. Then the cus
tom died out, and was not renewed
until President Lincoln, 1863, called
on the nation to bow before God In
humbleness and prayer. The Civil
war then was at its height Every
President since Lincoln has con
tinued to proclaim the last Thurs
day In November as Thanksgiving
day, and the occasion is observed
In metropolis and countryside alike,
although the manner of observ
ance may be vastly different
In the rural districts, particular
ly, In the West, Middle West and
South, many of the customs of the
forefathers still prevail, although
the advent of the automobile bas
brought great changes.
