    This week’s Conservation Corner suggests composting as another way to reduce the amount of trash you put into your garbage can and eventually, the landfill. 

  • For the last week, I have been chief cook and bottle washer in the house while the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was visiting our son and his family in Ohio. I like nothing better than being in charge. Of course, I wonder what in the world I am in charge of when I am the only one in the house.

    For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. . . So begins St. Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians church (Eph. 3:14-21), which I have selected as my prayer for the readers of this article and any who might follow for as long as the Lord and the editor are willing.

    As a native of this area, I understand most of the pressures and circumstances of the people here and realize the difficulty of life in these times.

  • Scripture passage: Joshua 5:13-15

    Jesus and politics! Christian and politics! It has been said that these do not mix. It would be safe for me to say that Jesus is surely above politics. However, the question is, “Would He have His followers be involved in the political process?” On the one hand, we should not put our eternal trust in worldly leaders. On the other hand, Christians must be involved in the political process. Any way you look at it, Jesus and politics are a hot topic.
