Happy New Year

Well, I may be a little behind in posting but I’m back. We ended the last and started this New Year with weather that few people enjoyed. The pipes froze at the church building and just getting outside was not much fun. Even my dogs wanted nothing to do with going out which created a […]

A Church Mourns

Shootings in churches seems to be something becoming all too common. I suppose, in one sense, it is nothing new. People have burned Synagogues, bombed churches where Black people worship and attacked different Mosques for centuries. Yet, somehow it means more now, to me, at least, than it has in the past.

Easter’s Coming

The tulips are blooming and the dandelions are everywhere. That is a sure sign that Spring is in the air and that Easter is right around the corner. Whether you celebrate Easter, Resurrection Sunday or neither, much of the Western world recognizes that April 16, 2017, is a special day because it is Easter Sunday […]

Viruses and Stuff

Well this seems to be a poor time of the year for good health. Several local school districts have dismissed classes for a various number of days in an attempt to quell the illnesses that are rampant in the students and staff. Many are feeling the impact of viruses, flu and other illnesses. Be in […]
