Continuing the road to Easter

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Last week we began a four-part series. It is about the greatest time and moment in the history of mankind. It is the Resurrection of Jesus.
We ended with Jesus entering Jerusalem. He wept about that city’s former greatness and how it would fall, perhaps a reference to those who have been taught about the gift of faith and shun it.

Hunt helps heal wounds

in
DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

I’ve never been particularly outdoorsy, but I did grow up with uncles, grandpas and other relatives for whom hunting was nearly a religious experience.
So, if hunting is something you’re into, I can understand how not being able to do it anymore would be traumatic. That’s why I think it’s great that the Louisiana Hunters for Heroes group has formed to help wounded soldiers get back out to the woods.

Perks of enjoying life

in
Irby, Marna.jpg

I’ve really made one of the coolest moves of my life or the biggest goofs of all time by striking out to live in an apartment building alone. Only time will tell. Pray for me because it’s too late now to change my mind.
I’ve had worlds of good help making the transition, but I’d forgotten how hard even a small move can be. Just stocking the fridge with essentials is no small task.
However, like all people before me, I’m sure I’ll muddle through, even at 93.
I truly love the place and the people in it.

Each part affects the whole

Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

Community. How do we live as a community? Do we realize that everything we do affects others, and every decision we make will affect another person in our community? It’s true. Every choice we make about how we care for ourselves affects others, because when we take care of ourselves, we are most likely going to be a content and helpful friend and family member. When we don’t take care of ourselves, we are more likely to cause harm to those around us out of our own misery. Every choice we make about how we care for the earth affects others, especially those future generations.

Louisiana Tech University has decided to fight the continuing decrease in state funding by increasing enrollment — a move university officials say will be beneficial not only to Tech but also the city of Ruston.
“We’re going to grow. We’re going to grow with quality. We’re going to grow intentionally,” Jim King, Tech’s vice president of student affairs told about 50 people gathered on the university campus Thursday evening for the Tech Faculty Senate’s annual Future of Ruston forum.
