When I was about 5 years old, our family began attending church in Olathe, KS, switching from the congregation we were going to in Mission. Being 5 years old, I don’t remember it all that much, but I do know thatI still attend the same congregation today that I did 23 years ago.
When I was young, I forged friendships and relationships in that congregation that are still strong today and my family has been warmly accepted as a member of that church.
Alli and I had the opportunity to plan the Thanksgiving Eve service this evening and we were so thankful for the turnout and support that we received. It was a great experience for us in planning the service, but I really believe that the service was a good experience for all. I’m so thankful that we have a place where we can worship and that, in this country, we are free to worship as we feel best.
