Before Friday's Thanksgiving Dinner with Greg's family, 
he had Lance read this:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly implore His protection, aid and favors...
Now therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these states to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the Beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country, and for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
-- George Washington, 1789

Hi Melody,
You may wish to check out Peter Leithart's book "Miniatures and Morals: The Christian Novels of Jane Austen." I have really enjoyed it.
Have a blessed day!
