For the first time, no friends or families will be spending Thanksgiving with us on the East Coast. My wife believes Thanksgiving is a family holiday, and therefore, we’ll be spending it with people from our church because they’re our church family.

I admit I don’t understand everything about Christianity. But the whole “everyone is your brother/sister and the congregation is your family” concept completely eludes me. If they’re family, how come I can’t yell at them and fight with them, and where are my Christmas presents from them?

I’ll share turkey with them, but they are NOT my family.
