Thanksgiving is less than a week away. As the holiday approaches, the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview has re-released a classic commentary from the late Chuck Colson about the real hero of the first Thanksgiving: God.

Colson’s commentary is about Squanto, the Wampanoag Indian who helped the Pilgrims survive in the early days at Plymouth. Colson writes,

According to the diary of Pilgrim Governor William Bradford, Squanto ‘became a special instrument sent of God for [our] good . . . He showed [us] how to plant [our] corn, where to take fish and to procure other commodities . . . and was also [our] pilot to bring [us] to unknown places for [our] profit, and never left [us] till he died.'”

You can listen to Chuck Colson’s full commentary below.
