  • Believers in Christ receive spiritual blessings

    Believers in Christ are blessed. Paul says in Ephesians 1:3, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”  

    One blessing the believer has is help for daily living. We all need help in life at various times – with raising our children, with our marriages, with our work and with our relationships. God can help us with these and more if we will seek him and seek his guidance in his word.

  • We remember 9-11

    Some days are etched in our memory as though they are historical markers, and recalling them causes us to remember where we were and what we were doing as those events unfolded. Such are the assassination of President Kennedy and the attack upon the World Trade Center. This week we have been recalling Sept. 11, 2001.

    Nearly 3,000 Americans died that day in the terrorists attacks upon the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in the rural fields in Pennsylvania.

  • Dick Frymire dies

    Noted weather prognosticator and folklorist L.H. “Dick” Frymire, 87, of Irvington, died Friday at his home.

    Frymire traveled the country giving speeches on folklore of all types, but particularly was known as a “treeologist.” He developed winter forecasts based on his trees.
