I was thinking to myself: in this Post-2020 season which we have been in the last year, does it seem to be similar with any other decade in American history? Has anyone else notice how much our time parallel the 1960s?

The 1960s was a time that had an unpopular war in the US: The Vietnam War. It’s a war that most Americans would eventually want American troops to leave. Likewise our time parallel that with the military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is all punctured with news about space exploration. In the 60s we have the moon landing. These days we hear about Elon Musk, space rockets and helicopters flying on the Moon. News about space development sounds like intermission between various political moments.

Of course the big elephant in the room is racial tension, political violence and Americans being divided. And just like the 60s college campuses seems to be a spawning place for all kinds of ideologies that provide the the undercurrent of some of these radical extremists today. Ideas have consequences. The 60s with the New Left started to really highlight the idea that the personal is political. Certainly we see that today.

One might even say we have a new sexual revolution with newer categories of identity politics, which parallel the sexual revolution of the 60s, but in a much more radical way.

Thanksgiving and our Christian heritage

By Angela Wittman "Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people."   ( 1 Chronicles 16:8, KJV ) While preparing for the gathering of family and friends this Thanksgiving season, let’s not forget to also prepare our hearts in humble gratefulness to God for the blessings and grace which He has bestowed upon us as individuals and as a nation. Here is a bit of history about Thanksgiving which you may not have been taught in school as taken from the website “A Puritan’s Mind” by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon : The celebration we now popularly regard as the ‘First Thanksgiving’ was the Pilgrims' three-day feast celebrated in early November of 1621 (although a day of thanks in America was observed in Virginia at Cape Henry in 1607)... The Pilgrims left Plymouth, England, on September 6, 1620, sailing for a new world that offered the promise of both civil and religious liberty. The Pilgrims had earlier left England in 1608, as the Church of England
