George Washington, our first president (under the Constitution), declared a day of national Thanksgiving on October 3, 1789. This was at the request of the Congress, giving thanks to God that we as a free people were able to create our own government and install such a leader as Washington. Dr. Peter Lillback, founder/president of Providence Forum, is an expert on all things George Washington. Dr. Lillback and Jerry Newcombe teamed up to write the book, “George Washington’s Sacred Fire. Together Dr. Lillback and Dr. Newcombe have discussed many aspects of Washington’s faith. In this newest of their dialogues is an introductory talk on Washington’s proclamation of Thanksgiving (to God). www.providenceforum.org
