... for Pastor Wanders' beautiful piece
(I'd like to express) my gratitude and respect to Pastor Dan Wanders for his beautiful "Neighbors" piece ("What if we all communicated as persons beloved of God?" Nov. 23). In a time where intolerance and labeling are all too common and often encouraged, it was a wonderful experience to see that there are people who believe that no one should be hurt or shunned based on their religion (or any other group they may belong to).
As a member of the chorus for "King Island Christmas," I have visited Aldersgate Church for rehearsal purposes, and had admired its beautiful architecture and construction. However, I am even more impressed knowing that the pastor there has such a wonderfully accepting attitude.
Thank you so much for giving me a little more to be thankful for this week.
