Danny Lee Thomas (May 9, 1951 – June 12, 1980) was a Major League Baseball player who played for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1976 and 1977. During his brief major league career, he became known as the “Sundown Kid” because of his well-publicized refusal to play on seventh-day Sabbath.

Urging change for the Worldwide Church of God
To all you Moms and Grandmas out there, Happy Mothers Day!
From the STP Project, Chapter 23 we read:
“In the area of celebration of nonreligious holidays, the Worldwide Church of God has never taken any stand against the observance of various and sundry days during the course of each calendar year, whether they be national or personal. In all countries around the world( our members keep nonreligious days which are special to their countries or themselves. For example, the majority of American Church members celebrate Thanksgiving day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Columbus Day, Washington’s Birthday and the like. Other personal days have long been commonly observed by Worldwide Church of God members, days such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and wedding anniversaries. These are commonly observed either through the exchanging of gifts (as in Mother’s and Father’s Days), the celebration over a family meal (as in Thanksgiving), or merely abstaining from work or going on an outing (such as Labor Day, the Fourth of July, etc.)”
Exchanging of gifts as in Mother’s and Father’s Days was ok, but Christmas was a taboo. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this picture?
Best to all you Moms. Make your husbands cook the family dinner. If not see diagram below for instructions!
