  • We welcomed the month of November with Halloween celebrations. My reflection during this month is on saints and sinners.

Halloween celebration is over now thanksgiving is right around the corner. It is nice to think about the history and spiritual meaning of the annual celebrations.

  • If you told someone you were going to walk 60 miles over three straight days, they may raise their eyebrows. But that is exactly what Carrollton resident Brittany Belcher and thousands of other people across the country did to raise money for breast cancer research.
