“And Sign of our Times” for Thanksgiving

“Turned out of house and home”–East-side eviction in New York,” November 1896. Original illustration, The Bowery Mission/Christian Herald.

We remember our hurting fellow New Yorkers with an original illustration from the November 1896 Christian Herald, a publication associated with The Bowery Mission. Some needs haven’t changed. This Thanksgiving is a sober time for too many people who need for prayer and care.

We can also appreciate even more than usual the love of families, friends, and neighbors.

Best Thanksgiving to you all!
