Hope you're having a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday! While we enjoy the fellowship of loved-ones and lightheartedly venture out into 'Black Friday' for shopping adventures, it's more of a genuine struggle for our Christian family around the world.
The believers in Baghdad, Iraq, for example, have learned that 'gratefulness' and 'cheerfulness' don't always go hand-in-hand. They've had a tough row to hoe for some time now. But there's no mistaking their passion, faith, and even joy in extraordinary difficulties. Paul says "I've learned to be content in all circumstances - in plenty and in want..." So there are really two sides to Thanksgiving. Cher joins Norm in studio for this truthful, faith-building and even sobering look at how those far from our comfort and ease give thanks today. As a result, perhaps you'll give special thanks for them on this special holiday.
