Thank you, Matt Morgan, for the splendid article on Lake Worth and Thanksgiving Day

The article by Matt Morgan slipped my mind and it certainly deserves attention. This is about the Interfaith church service in Lake Worth on Thanksgiving Day that was very well attended. Ted Brownstein as well as many others have worked hard to make this effort a big success and you can read about that here. Here are two excerpts:
     Members of more than a dozen faiths packed the First Congregational Church in Lake Worth on Thursday for something different than the average Thanksgiving church service.
     The Lake Worth Interfaith Network conducted its 11th annual event to bring people to all regions together to worship.
     Christians, Muslims, Quakers and Native Americans joined with people of several other traditions to sing songs and speak of their own religious practices.
     Though they don’t agree on everything, the spirit of Thanksgiving transcends single religions.
[and. . .]
     “All religions, we all, have traditions of being thankful,” said Labeed Choudhry, a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. He said he’s thankful that he was able to come to the United States 22 years ago.
