The power of gratitude

In the fall of 1621, 90 Native Americans of the Wampanoag tribe shared a Thanksgiving celebration with a group of Pilgrims along the New England coast. The Wampanoags provided the majority of the food: five deer, wild turkeys, fish, beans, squash, corn soup, corn bread, berries.

It had been a tough year for the settlers. Nearly half had died the previous winter: But through the summer, the native people befriended them and helped them learn how to survive in the new land. Now, better prepared for the coming winter, they gathered together in gratitude for God's goodness.
