One hundred people representing about 10 churches gathered Sunday afternoon for a Thanksgiving service focused on gratitude. The Rev. Delton Lehman from LifeGate Ministries provided the message and focused on Luke 7:36-50. In those verses, a sinful woman washes Jesus' feet. Lehman talked about how the woman wept in affection when meeting the savior. Pat West of Wayne Heights, Pa., said Lehman made her rethink the story. “I have read that (section of Scripture) so many times, and I've never put myself in the place of that woman,” she said.
