I got the invitation late and I had other plans for Sunday night. So I had mixed feelings about going to the Thanksgiving service organized by the Greater Huntington Beach Interfaith Council. When I pulled into the Warner Avenue parking lot of the Community United Methodist Church, I hardly expected to find every parking space with a car in it. As I drove up and down nearby residential streets looking for a spot to park my car, I was tempted to pull back onto Warner and go home.
