The First Thanksgiving

Image

My children and I really enjoyed the story of the first thanksgiving as told by Graham Green.  It’s available through amazon prime stream for free, which is how we watch movies these days.  (It started with an addiction to books . . . then an obscene amount of diapers delivered to our house and now this)

The movie is a bit slow but the story is very powerful.  I cried as Squanto appeared to the pilgrims for the first time and miraculously speaks their language.  This is a story like St. Patrick’s or Elizabeth Elliot’s of great forgiveness.  It is encouraging to be reminded that the tragedy and abuse in our lives can give us a voice to help others who are in desperate need.
