The Two Sides of Thanksgiving – CR CLASSIC


What a Thanksgiving it’s been in 2020! While nothing seems to have gone to plan this holiday season, it has always been a genuine struggle for our Christian family around the world to be together. They have a lot to teach us about giving thanks in trying times. There’s no better Thanksgiving than this one to let them teach us.

In this classic conversation between Cher and Norm Nelson, we re-introduce you to the Faithful in Baghdad, Iraq, who have learned that ‘gratefulness’ and ‘cheerfulness’ don’t always go hand-in-hand. They’ve had a tough row to hoe for some time now. But there’s no mistaking their passion, faith, and even joy in extraordinary difficulties. Paul says “I’ve learned to be content in all circumstances – in plenty and in want…” So there are really two sides to Thanksgiving. Cher joins Norm in studio for this truthful, faith-building and even sobering look at how those far from our comfort and ease give thanks today. As a result, perhaps you’ll give special thanks for them on this special holiday.
