We are grateful for the partnership and collaboration that we have with the Christian County Health Department and the Central Illinois Foodbank as we work collectively to serve the residents of Christian County. The items outside the Pantry were excesses and not representative of what is given from inside. For the best of what the Taylorville Food Pantry has to offer in the way of food selection, quality and helpful faces, come visit us during operating hours Tuesday mornings from 8:30-10, Thursday evenings from 5:30-7, and Saturday mornings from 8:30-9:30.

Americans are celebrating Thanksgiving 2021. Is it really because a special event occurred along the southeast coast of Massachusetts in the fall of 1621? In spire of contemporary cultural upheaval something special has been remembered. Thanking God for His providence is at least worth an annual celebration. it was areal motive for the Mayflower colonists who survived their first winter since December 1620. They celebrated for three days with their new neighbors the Wampanoag Indians. And is it just a coincidence that this New England Territory was named Massachusetts? Pilgrims and puritans preferred a new home in a new country and those 102 passengers aboard the Mayflower sailed into Cape Cod Bay to land on American shores. While anchored in the bay 41 men signed a document on November 11, 1620 to organize a new colony and civil political body form of government. We know that document as the Mayflower Compact. These folks intended to put their convictions into practice without government censor and intervention. Certain imperial churches were persecuting rather than edifying their members. The puritans wanted to reform the English Anglican church, while the Pilgrims wanted separation and a strictly biblical application. That was not happening in England and the Netherlands. Freedom for speech and religion became priorities Seems hard to believe in the new millennium the same priorities are at risk again. America has been the nation of freedom and liberty for all. We are being attacked by adversaries who demand special exceptions and provisions at citizen’s expense. This writer has witnessed too much of this demolition. However we Americans have been blessed by the God of Providence and Repentance. As we celebrate our Quadri Centennial Thanksgiving, will our descendants celebrate their Penta Centennial Thanksgiving?
