Thanksgiving is about showing appreciation, not just shopping and football games
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) November 25, 2014
November 24, 2014, My Positive Perspective host Jason Deierlein was joined by Pastor Gordon Cashwell for an episode that spoke about a fabulous event coming to the Charleston area. The Thanksgiving Day event is meant to bring joy and appreciation to those citizens that need help on this holiday. At the start of the episode, Cashwell says, “We’re excited to be putting this event on for the lord and Thanksgiving is about giving thanks. That is something I have been learning about that no matter how bad you believe your situation is, there is someone else who has things lots worse.” Deierlein says, “That is so true and this company is based on that fact. The understandings you have about that topic helps make you a great guest for this show.”
Cashwell then says, “If we are going to have a whole day about being thankful, let’s express that by giving back to others. We say Thanksgiving is about giving thanks but more and more, it has been focused on shopping, football games or food.” Cashwell continues, “Let’s find people who are hungry and serve them a meal because that’s what the lord wants us to do.”
Deierlein then says, “Sure and you said this event takes place on King Street in downtown Charleston and anybody can come.” Cashwell says, “I have been pleasantly surprised with our large turnouts previously and the large number of volunteers too.”
My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.
