What Are We Thankful For?

by Creation Museum on November 17, 2016

In one week, families will gather around the table for Thanksgiving and take time to reflect on the things they are thankful for. Our research team recently interviewed several of our employees at the Creation Museum to find out what they are thankful for this year. Here’s what our staff members will be giving thanks for this Thanksgiving holiday.

Spending Time with Family

With Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching, our staff members are thankful to be able to spend time with family. Some employees will be traveling to visit with their friends and family while others will have family coming into town this year. Please be praying for traveling mercies for everyone.

Working at the Museum

Many of our employees mentioned that they are thankful for the opportunity to work at the Creation Museum. Some of our employees enjoyed their time as a volunteer so much that they decided to come on staff, and others have moved from out of state to work at the museum. They love meeting and interacting with our guests and seeing them learn the truth of God’s Word.

Fellow Christian Coworkers

This year our staff members are also thankful to work alongside fellow Christians. They turn to each other for support and encouragement, and they are thankful for the great teamwork that helps make each day a success.

God’s Provision

As you heard in the video above, our employees are also thankful for God’s provisions, such as being able to celebrate another year of marriage. Some have moved into new homes, bringing them closer to other family members. Our staff members will be giving thanks for all that God has provided for them this year.

The Gospel

The answer to the sin problem of our world is what our staff members are most thankful for this year. We are thankful for the gospel, which visitors learn about as they walk through the Creation Museum. Sin entered the world when Adam and Eve made the choice to eat from the forbidden tree. But Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became a man, lived a sinless life, and then willingly died on the Cross to pay the penalty for our sin.

At the Creation Museum, we have much to be thankful for this year. As you gather around the table with your family this year, what will you give thanks for?
