One more reason to be thankful is to live in the community of Columbia County, Oregon, USA.
I can worship in the church of my choice, Bethany Lutheran Church in Warren, as my friends and neighbors may or my not worship… let alone… attend the churches of their choice which may or may not be the same choice as mine. We are one of the few countries in the world where you can worship OR NOT at any time, guilt and threatened free!
This Thanksgiving when I participate in the service of my church-choice… I will be thinking of all my Columbia County neighbors, fellow Oregonians and Americans and thanking GOD for the privilege of living here!
