  • tiscione, lou.jpg 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.

    Fine dining was really not difficult to find back in the ’30s and ’40s. Today it is almost impossible to find that type of restaurant.

  • Hamilton, Lee.jpg 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.

    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.
