Grateful guests

From the November 2015 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The Pilgrims who began settling in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620 went through a winter of nearly unbearable hardships, during which they lost half of their number. Yet, in the autumn that followed, they, along with the native Wampanoag Indians, held an elaborate feast to celebrate their gratitude to God for His guidance and care.
