Boy Scout motto, Be Prepared

After retiring from the fur business, I worked for Ace Hardware for seven years. Noticing dust on some shelves, I wondered why there was little turn-over of important merchandise.

Get the facts about the March 19 transit referendum

Gwinnett County voters will go to the polls March 19 to consider expansion of our transit options through a contract with MARTA. If voters choose to approve the transit contract that Gwinnett County has negotiated with MARTA, the expansion will follow a plan developed by Gwinnett County with substantial public participation. It would also mean the establishment of a one-cent sales tax to pay for the transit improvements and expansion.

A Call for Unity among Christians

God desires for His people, the church, to be unified. Now, it’s really hard for people to have unity because we have so many different beliefs, opinions, and preferences. It’s challenging for a family living under the same roof to be unified. It’s really difficult for a church family, a local body of believers, to be unified. And it’s extremely challenging for all the churches around our community, country, and the world to be unified.

Revealing the Wizard in 2019

You remember the classic 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz” of course. Dorothy was whisked away to a dream world in the sky to do battle with the Wicked Witch of the West. Her battle was to return to her world, but first, she must find the Great Oz. She thought he was the only one that could get her home to the real world. And indeed, most of the movie Doro-thy was not even aware she was not in a real world until she woke up!
