  • Red Cross urges donors to fill Missing Types to prevent blood shortage

    The _meric_n Red Cr_ss needs help to bring back the A’s, B’s and O’s. This is not a typo. These letters represent blood types, and the reality is that during blood shortages these letters do go missing from hospital shelves. The American Red Cross urges donors of all blood types to give now to help prevent delays in patient care this summer.

  • God's ordained order

    To the pastors and those who hold leadership positions in The New Testament Church. We must understand that we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and that it is God the Holy Spirit that gives spiritual gifts as he sees fit (1Cor. 12:7-11, Ephesians 4:11-12). It is my prayer that this letter be read in its entirety and that the scriptural references be studied in their context and that any disagreement be scripturally supported.

  • Lettuce, squash, blueberries at peak of ripeness

    Hello once again, my friends. As I sit typing this we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of the summer rut. By the summer rut I mean, full scale temperatures, but not quite to the point of taking full advantage of summer produce. I call this the summer rut. The tomatoes, sweet corn and many of the fruit trees are there but not quite ready to pick and eat. But, let’s not lament. There are plenty of early veggies and fruits that are available that we can take advantage of.
