    The Harvest Festival of Thanksgiving

    By Dr. Paul Jehle, Executive Director
    Plymouth Rock Foundation
     

    At this time of year many people reflect upon the Pilgrims and the origin of our American Thanksgiving holiday. Some contend that it either never occurred or was not a friendly affair with a legacy of genocide. Hopefully some context and clarity can help remove these myths and bring factual balance. Consider some of these facts: (1) We do not know when the actual harvest feast occurred, though we know it was the fall of 1621. (2) We don't know if the Pilgrims invited their Native neighbors to a pre-planned event, but we know they feasted together. (3) The Natives provided much of the food, and though they had turkey, venison ruled the day.

     
    The Pilgrims (who were not called "pilgrims" until late in the 18th century), as children of the Reformation, "separatists" from the established Church of England, called for days of prayer as well as days of thanksgiving. Days of solemn prayer (and often fasting) were times of repentance for sin; known or unknown. Days of thanksgiving were called when specific answers to those prayers occurred. Neither of these was the origin of the harvest festival in the fall of 1621.

    5 Steps To A Political Epiphany

    Pastor Cary Gordon illustrates his political epiphany in 5 short videos. Party founder Howard Phillips had a similar epiphany and realized that his part in the solution was to build a party whose strategy would be undergirded by honoring God's Law in the political sphere. The Constitution Party of Georgia is accomplishing this by focusing on local politics and government. 

    Take the first step to see how people realize that something is wrong...

    George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclaimation

    New York, 3 October 1789

    By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

    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-- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

    GW_Thanksgiving_Proclaimation.jpgNow therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be-- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks--for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation--for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war--for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed--for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted--for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

    And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions-- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually--to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed--to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord--To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us--and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

    Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

    CP-Ga Teleconference

    December 2018 Statewide Tele-Town Hall Meeting

    Merry Christmas!  The monthly statewide Tele-Town Halls are public events where persons interested in the party can hear about the party's history and activities here in Georgia, and learn how you can get involved.

    The December 2018 statewide Tele-Town Hall will provide an update on party activities here in Georgia, as well as commentary on current political topics such as immigration, religious liberty, gun control, surveillance, taxation and debt.  Activists from around the state will give updates on what the party is doing.  But most importantly this will give you an opportunity to ask questions about the party.  

    With the growing discontent with the two-party establishment, concerned voters are seeking out the Constitution Party.  This is an opportunity for supporters and activists to introduce friends and family to the party. 

    RSVP today!  Once you register you will be emailed the conference call information.
