Religion: A time to give thanks

December 4, 2013

By STEVE COLANGELO

During this Thanksgiving season, I find it amazing that the day after we give thanks for what we have I see so much greed and avarice in the malls the next day! Reports of violence, injuries and protests in the stores have filled the news; what happened to giving thanks? Is this a sign of a bad economy or something deeper? Ingratitude has always been a problem for man because Satan would rather have you dwell on what you don’t have instead of being grateful to God for what you do have.

LUCERNE VALLEY • San Bernardino County’s proposed solar ordinance takes big steps to protect the High Desert, said an official from Third District Supervisor James Ramos’ office.

The county board of supervisors is expected to vote on the first reading of the ordinance on Dec. 3.
