  • Salvation is available to every person

    By ETHEL SKIPPER

    Salvation is available to every person, but it should be noted that the benefits are not just in the future.
    Salvation brings great benefit to believers in the present, as children of God made righteous in Him and gifted with the Holy Spirit.
    Salvation encompasses so mcuh more than rescue from the power of death, and separation from God. The Christian enjoys numerous benefits of salvation. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature – old things are passed away, behold all things are become new.

  • The importance of obituaries

    By TRACY RENEE LEE

    Occasionally, I work with a family wishing to forgo the printing of the death announcement, a.k.a. obituary,  in the newspaper.
    Before becoming a funeral practitioner, I thought, as these families sometimes do, that obituaries were unnecessary and a bit obsolete, especially if the decedent’s circles of friends and family were small.

  • I’m on a roll so don’t rock my boat

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything went exactly as planned? Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll.
    In a sense, that worries me. I am not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50 percent of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good.
    In contrast, the week before it was horrendous.
