  • Letter to the Editor - I"m tapped out

    Updated Apr 26, 2024

    Dear Salvation Army, I have donated pretty faithfully in the past years, but now I am also struggling to make ends meet. Perhaps you could ask Ukraine or some of the other dozens of countries we send foreign aid (my tax dollars) to if they could spare some cash.

Perhaps our politicians could share some of their pay and perks. Maybe they could hook you up with a sweetheart deal... Full story

    Updated Apr 26, 2024

    Romans 18:17 "Watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you learned." Out our way, there are often more than one "leader" in the herd whom the other cattle will follow without question.

But what happens when two different leaders going on different trails arise and call the herd to follow?... Full story
