The Christian and Jewish holidays are coming. Thanksgiving is a holiday where our ancestors gave thanks to God whether in New England or in Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English Colony in America. We thank God for our nation and its freedoms. That includes freedom of religion or philosophy. Then there is Christmas and other celebrations with other groups. Our nation needs these special times to regain hope and happiness. For Christians, the most important holiday is Good Friday and Easter, times that represent death, burial, resurrection and salvation for those of us who accept these gifts. For the Jews, it is Passover, when God freed His people from slavery in Egypt. No human being of any belief should be a slave. What will I be doing these sacred times: I shall be looking at creation and thinking about what is beyond it. Believe me, there is more than we see. No scientist can really and truly deny that wonderful prospect. I will be here in Chesapeake for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Good Friday and Easter serving my savior. There will be others doing other things, their traditions whether I agree with them or not. This is my last word on this subject. The Apostle Paul wrote it.
I know whom I have believed that He is able, to teach that which I have committed, unto Him against that day.
John 14:1-3 and John 3. Remember don’t be angry because you do not follow a religious view. Just show love for your fellow human beings no matter their beliefs. I Corinthians 13. Remember that love is important any time of the year.
