Even though the Disney Channel's website, over the Thanksgiving weekend, asked children to submit a post stating what they're thankful for, a 10-year-old girl from North Carolina was blocked from submitting her thanks to "God."

David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Ministries and pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in California, is returning to New York City for another celebration, following a 2013 event that drew thousands to the city.
"One of the things we found out last year — we were at the Theater at Madison Square Garden last year, and it was a very special night for us because we introduced a brand new study Bible that we had worked on for so many years. It was a night of celebration," Jeremiah told The Christian Post.
