  • Softball, early defections, and the Licking Valley Singers

    Several things are crossing my mind tonight as I write this article.  
    The 91st birthday party for Brother Jimmy Rose, which was so well documented in last week’s paper, had an error or two in it which is easy to understand due to the number of people in the life story of Bro. Rose and the different communities where he coached basketball.

  • Easter season is for laughing

    When I was a new Christian, I discovered a portrait of Jesus called the “Laughing Christ” at a Christian book store.
