Group Information

"Shoulder To Shoulder" is a weekly newsletter from Life Unlimited Ministries' (LUM) founder and Executive Director Bob Tolliver, for individuals in Christian ministry, either vocational or volunteer. Its singular purpose is to bring encouragement to those who are in positions of leadership and ministry in the work of Christian service. Unlike other newsletters designed to provide needed resource information and sermon ideas, or offer opportunities to "debate" certain issues, "Shoulder To Shoulder" focuses entirely on being a "Barnabas" to fellow servants in God's work, bearing burdens, providing prayer support, and "lifting up the hands that hang down".

Thanksgiving in America

 

America’s first national Thanksgiving occurred in 1789 with the commencement of the federal government. According to the Congressional Record for September 25 of that year, the first act after the Framers completed the framing of the Bill of Rights was that:

Mr. [Elias] Boudinot said he could not think of letting the session pass without offering an opportunity to all the citizens of the United States of joining with one voice in returning to Almighty God their sincere thanks for the many blessings He had poured down upon them. With this view, therefore, he would move the following resolution:

Resolved, That a joint committee of both Houses be directed to wait upon the President of the United States to request that he would recommend to the people of the United States a Day of Public Thanksgiving and Prayer. . . .

Mr. Roger Sherman justified the practice of thanksgiving on any single event not only as a laudable one in itself but also as warranted by a number of precedents in Holy Writ. . . . This example he thought worthy of a Christian imitation on the present occasion. 15

That congressional resolution was delivered to President George Washington, who heartily concurred with the request and issued the first federal Thanksgiving proclamation, declaring in part:

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. . . . Now, therefore, I do appoint Thursday, the 26th day of November 1789 . . . that we may all unite to render unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection. 16
