Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Thanksgiving is an official designated time to thank Almighty God, so designated by the United States government; and we are happy to oblige, for we know the importance of thanking him for all our benefits of body and soul; yet our feeble thank offerings are insufficient. So in his mercy he sent his Son, who as man, in our stead, gave thanks on the night when he was betrayed. His thank offering was not only in words but in the offering of his holy body into death for the sin of the world. And so in our stead he gave thanks to the eternal Father; and so when we give thanks, it must be in him, and we will do well to receive the very offering he gave, in partaking in the Holy Supper, and so to dedicate our lives to serving him, for his mercy endures forever.
