TISCIONE: The Solid Foundation
Samuel J. Stone wrote “The Church’s One Foundation” in 1866 which was inspired by Ephesians 2:20. His first verse is: “The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord; she is his new creation by water and the Word; from heav’n he came and sought her to be his holy bride; with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.” The church of which he wrote and of which the Bible speaks is both invisible and visible. The church is an organism, the body of Christ and an organization.
We’re told government protects us, but protectors quickly become bullies.

TISCIONE: The straw dog

OPINION: Fixing Congress
These are hard times for Congress. Its approval ratings have seen a bump from their historic lows of a few months ago, but it’s a small one. Our representative democracy’s keystone political institution is widely derided as ineffective, unproductive, irrelevant, and sadly out of touch.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Color of dogs’ tails
Mr. May, I read your article in the March edition of “Your Family” magazine and found it interesting, some of which was similar to my experiences in politics. I spent the first 17 years of my life in Oklahoma and did not know but one person that publicly admitted to being a Republican.
NOW HEAR THIS: Rag-pickers and other ‘pore’ folk
A few years ago, my daughter, Lori, was going through a box containing some of her late mother’s belongings, and she made an interesting discovery. Carefully tucked away in this assortment of items was a bundle of fabric pieces cut out and intended to eventually be part of a quilt top for my son, Doug.
