LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Our officials care
I take serious exception to Mr. Jay Cloward’s letter, “Big city, no care” (7/8/14) in which he states that it almost looks like the city wants to become a for-profit company and Weatherford has “become a city too big to care.”
PASTOR POPHIN: Joy in external conflict
Do you get the sense that Christians today face increasing opposition from our government concerning our faith and practice? Such issues include: 1) Prayer in school and at other public gatherings are being banned and looked down on; 2) the removal of the 10 Commandments from courthouses throughout our country; and 3) the challenges to the words “one nation under God” appearing in our Pledge of Allegiance. Therefore, we are seeing increased conflict between churches and our government.
KELLY: What do you think?
Reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic:
NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: Worth fixin'
We call ourselves the “ROMEOS” – far from being skilled with the ladies, we are just “Retired Old Men Eating Out.” On Tuesdays over our favorite barbecue, the topics of our conversation are wide ranging. But one subject that often reoccurs is our frustration with computers that frequently breakdown and have to be taken to the shop for repair.
TISCIONE: Who are we?
I pray that you had a blessed celebration of our independence. We all have the Lord God to thank for the freedom we enjoy.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: What’s so good about President Obama?
I’m proud to live in an America where our great president has passed a health care bill, after five presidents (Republican and Democratic) over the last 50 years tried and failed. I want my America to be a place where not only the rich can receive affordable health care by all citizens alike. Here’s to you, President Obama. It saddens me to hear disrespectful and pernicious comments about the man who holds the highest office of our great country. I hope that good people all across Parker County will join me in prayer for our elected leadership.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Big city, no care
The City of Weatherford officials have deemed it necessary to increase costs of utilities and taxes so more pet projects can be paid for. This comes from a city that collects money each month for storm runoff during an extended drought.
TISCIONE: The top 10
Number one on the “Top Ten” list of the worst questions to ask in church is “Do we have free will?”
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Hobby Lobby ruling
“It’s a free country!” How many times have you heard that statement?
PASTOR POPHIN: Joy in heavenly thinking
For six years, I had the honor and privilege of serving as chaplain for a hospice organization. Those years are ones that made an impression on my life that has changed me forever. I served a variety of people during that time. I served those of strong Christian faith, agnostics, atheist and those of other faiths. As far as those who had the same Christian perspective that I have, the group was a little over half.
