THIS COMING SATURDAY IS OUR NATIONAL DAY OF THANKSGIVING

This Saturday is Australia’s National Day of Thanksgiving. A day (or weekend) set aside to say thank you to God for all His goodness to us as a nation, and to say thank you to others for the special and unique contribution they make to our lives. 

On Saturday tens of thousands of Australians will be thanked, honoured or served by their fellow citizens in a day of goodwill, that is fast establishing its own unique place in the calendar of our nation.

On Saturday night Christians will gather to worship and give thanks to God in combined Australia Worships celebrations and on Sunday Churches will celebrate with services of Thanksgiving.

The National Day of Thanksgiving is a day when our nation is touched by the love, grace and compassion of Jesus as expressed by those who are called by His name – the Christians of this great nation.

Why don’t you make a point of seeking someone out this Saturday to say thank you to, or to do an act of kindness towards, and let them see the nature and character of Jesus through your loving concern.
