    Sondra Ashton|Updated Mar 22, 2024

    I have perfected English muffins. What that means is that I got hungry for English muffins, not available on the shelves of any tienda in town.

I called that batch “Thing One.” I’d eaten one hot off the griddle with butter and jam but wanted a breakfast sandwich muffin on the order of the classic from the Golde...

    Updated Mar 22, 2024

    Luke 10:25-37 Out our way, livestock can sometimes surprise you. While I won't say they have human emotions and such, there are times I wonder. The mama cow who "babysits" for the rest of the cows while they graze or go down to the water for a "girls day out." Sometimes people show as much consideration for each other, although sadly it is not as common. Back in seminary, I was introduced to a Jewish scholar and writer named Martin Buber who survived the holocaust. He often...

    Updated Mar 22, 2024

    You can read three versions of this story in Matthew 26:6-13, Mark 14:3-9 and John 12:1-8.

One woman, not wanting to wait until he died to express her love, anointed him at Bethany with expensive perfume [see the parallel passage in John 12:1-8, where the woman is identified as Mary, sister of Martha and...

Then, there was the monumental coaching change at HHS, as Miller took over for his former head coach George Ferguson, who retired from HHS tennis after 20 years at the helm. Needless to say, none of it was easy for Miller. However, as spring...
