ON THIS THANKSGIVING DAY: A ‘FOOD FOR THOUGHT’ . . . NOVEMBER 17, 1958

November 24th, 2016

From the MCRFB news archives: 1958

There’s “food for thought” in a Thanksgiving Day visit to your house of worship

 

 

 

 

 

Old-congregational-church-in-fall-weather (MCRFB 2)T O D A Y ,  F A R   T O O   M A N Y  of us think of Thanksgiving in terms of food and football — overlooking the fact that there is so much more food offered than that which is placed on the family table. For there is much “food for thought” as well.

Thanksgiving is a time to take stock of life’s blessings . . . to take a bright-eyed child on your knee and talk to him, or her, of things that really matter. . . of their great American heritage and the promise it holds for them. It’s a time to take your whole family to your church or synagogue for an hour of prayer and thanks that will make your holiday mean so much more.

True, our lives are far removed from those of the Pilgrim Fathers. We live in the uncertainty of the Atomic Age. But we also live in the abundance of 20th Century America. Has any one of us so much or so little that he cannot find room or time in his heart to say thanks?

This Thanksgiving, why not take your family to your church or synagogue? Wherever you are . . . whatever your beliefs may be . . . take time to offer your word of thanks.

 

FIND THE STRENGTH FOR YOUR LIFE . . . WORSHIP TOGETHER THIS WEEK!

(Information and news source: Billboard; November 17, 1958).

THE ABC RADIO NETWORK

At approximately 1:36 p.m., EST (12:36 p.m., CST; Dallas time), Don Gardiner of ABC News in New York first broke the airways nationwide with a FLASH news bulletin President Kennedy had been shot in Dallas, over the ABC Radio Network (WXYZ; Detroit).

Almost immediately following the ABC report, the CBS (WJR; Detroit) and NBC (WWJ; Detroit) radio networks broke in with bulletins approximately 1:38 p.m. EST. The Mutual Broadcasting System (WKNR; Detroit) began picking up the news feed pouring out of Dallas, breaking radio programming with flash bulletins covering Mutual affiliates nationwide, four-minutes later. Time approximately 1:40 p.m., Detroit time.

By 1:45 to 2:00 p.m., virtually every station on the dial (with the exception of WJLB who had not suspended their Friday scheduled programming) would cease all commercial radio programming in Detroit, and thereafter would remain under the news control of the three major networks out of New York during those four days, November 22-25, 1963.
