• LETTER: Be sure and vote Nov. 8

    Dear editor,
    Register. Vote. Be heard.
    Politicians and policy makers at all levels of government routinely make decisions about issues that directly affect women and families, including our paychecks, access to reproductive health care, violence against women, and education funding.  
    To create real change, women must be part of the conversation, and at this moment the most powerful way for us to chime in is at the polls.
    During this season of political punditry and campaign promises, it’s more  

  • LETTER: No such thing as a day with empty pages

    Whenever I get ready to write a Glimpse of Grace, or a sermon, or even a letter, there is always an empty page that stares back at me. And it will remain blank until I hit my keyboard, or put the pen to paper. Even if it is just a doodle, or a mistaken touch of a key, until that happens, the page will remain empty.

  • All Together Now

    I was just wondering — what if Christmas could be different this year? And I mean, really different. What if we brought back “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays?” What if we sang “Hark the Herald, Angels Sing” alongside of, instead of just “Jingle Bells?” What if we saw Santa Claus for who he truly is: Saint Nicholas, who brought gifts to those who couldn’t afford gifts themselves, and who stood for the truth about Jesus against what today would be called a “liberal agenda?”

  • Silent Night

    Silent Night
    With all the Christmas rush happening, getting the presents mailed out, shopping for that one more gift you need, deciding what to make for Christmas dinner, and with the evening news and weather all mixed in, it is a little difficult to even get a glimpse for what “Silent Night” is all about.

  • The Real Christmas Story

    Praise and glory
    We can tell the real Christmas story.
    Long ago before creation, Jesus chose,
    With his victory o’er death he arose.
    With the scars on his back
    Where all our sins had been tacked.
    The only sinless perfect sacrifice,
    Could He be, and would suffice,
    On the Calvary tree.
    Heavenbound, two of the crucified three,
    Where all will bow the knee,
    On His next return, all will know,
    In His book of life, will your name show?

  • LETTER: PTSD will be a problem until there is a cultural shift within the military

    Dear Editor,

    Many women veterans have been victims of military sexual trauma resulting in post-traumatic stress disorder. Those that have experienced military sexual trauma are also more likely to be at risk for depression, anxiety disorders, sleeping disorders, substance abuse issues, eating disorders, anger management problems and suicide.

  • LETTER: How do we respond?

    Dear Editor,

    Once again we come to an all-too familiar place with the news coming out of San Bernardino. It’s a scene of tears, broken hearts, and a ton of questions, and our hearts once again turn to the victims, to their families. And to the perpetrators and we want to ask them: “Why?”
