First of all, happy Thanksgiving! We have so much to be grateful for and God has blessed us with everything we need in Christ to get through this temporary life.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15

Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Today, Mike reports on the DePere City Council meeting and vote last night in favor of the broadly-worded “non-discrimination” bill that was preliminarily passed two weeks ago.  He shares thoughts on the public discussion and ramifications of the legislation.

We also look at another attack on religious freedom in the City of Appleton, where a pastor was elected School Board member but is now under fire because he had the audacity to mention God and faith at a High School Commencement speech earlier this year.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:11-12
