Seek God on the slippery slope that has become our world

Thanksgiving and Christmas are almost here. America and the whole world are on a slippery slope, A MESS! Nevertheless, I thank God for all volunteers still responding to all in need as they have for years.

It’s a privilege this year to write a column that may be read on Thanksgiving Day. For me, columns about being grateful are some of the easiest to write.

A hearty thank you to all of our readers, advertisers and community members and wish you the most blessed Thanksgiving.

I’ve been with many of you for more than 21 years and I think I can speak for all of my staff when I say we are grateful for you.

“What is prayer?” read the title of a chapter in a weekly study I am leading. It is an excellent and important question, one with which I have been wrestling for years.

If you perused a typical prayer list, you would find a list of people with problems, some sick, some unemployed, some in financial straits.

People who collect items do so for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the purpose is an unlimited curiosity about the subject which is collected. Stamp and coin collectors often fall into this category.

The autumn season in Santa Rosa County brings out another variety of collector which has practical and utilitarian objectives for their collecting activity. Seed collectors are actively acquiring mature seeds for one of two diametrically opposed reasons.
