Hey everyone! I hope your Thanksgiving feasts were delicious and your Christmas present shopping is well under way.

This week’s newsletter has two of my pre-Thanksgiving projects, including the Q&A with Ambassador David Saperstein. I’m also excited to share my latest feature article: a look at a very dreamy Scottish wedding and what drives couples to plan religion-related destination weddings.

I’ve already got a long list of articles I hope to tackle before the New Year, including one about how religion popped up in movie theaters over the last 12 months. Has anyone seen ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ yet? I’ve heard nothing but good reviews.
