The staff of the Allegheny Institute extends its warmest wishes to our readers, their families and friends for a joyous and happy Thanksgiving.
And we commend to all the words of President Harry Truman, from 1952:
“In Thanksgiving we have a purely American holiday – fashioned out of our own history and testifying to the religious background of our national life. That day expresses what we mean when we say that our form of government rests on a spiritual foundation.
“It is from a strong and vital church – from the strength and vitality of all our churches – that government must draw its vision. … But we cannot keep the vision strong, or carry it out, without God’s help. And the churches must help us keep that vision always before us.”
