In 1957, by a proclamation of Parliament, a day of Thanksgiving was declared:

“A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed.”[1]

Remember–It isn’t a thanksgiving if there is no One to thank! “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”

Psalm 118:1 (ESV)

Stein: Well, it’s very simple. I can give you two examples. If that podium suddenly rose into the air five feet, stayed there for a minute and then dropped right down again, I would say that is evidence of a supernatural because it would violate everything we knew about the laws of physics and chemistry. read more

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. read more
