Religion: Where Are You?

April 7, 2015

By Jesse McLoy

I became acquainted with the sting of death during my elementary school years. I understood that grandparents were old and would get sick and die. Pets would get hit by cars or get sick, but children were meant to live. Then one day, as I trudged along the gravel strewn path toward Rusk Elementary School something happened. The bench, at the bus stop where Eddy and I met to continue our walk to school, was empty. It wasn’t like Eddy to be late, so I waited a few minutes then continued my forced march.

Recipe: Pepperoni Cornbread

April 7, 2015

By Holly Sosa

My kids love pepperoni, in fact, they practically worship it. Straight from the pouch, peeling it from their pizza, inside a pasta salad, wherever they can get to it, it’s a Sosa house favorite. That’s why when brainstorming a new family recipe featuring the zesty snack, I couldn’t whip one up fast enough. Knowing my kids love of pepperoni and carbs (rolls, breads) I dreamt up a savory Pepperoni Cornbread.


• two boxes cornbread mix

• two eggs

• ⅔ cup of milk

• one cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Religion: Resurrection Solves Man's Greatest Problem — Dying Twice!

April 3, 2015


What a great Sunday is coming this weekend! Good Friday is always followed by Resurrection's sunrise on the first day of the week.  The Easter Bunny hasn't stopped Easter yet,  but something's happened in once "Christian" England.  Compared to the USA, few in England will attend church anywhere this year. These folks are making a bold statement. Can one really follow the devil and only die once?  The bold statement of Jesus' resurrection is that believers die once, instead of twice. That's what Easter Sunday is about. I'm going to be in church, worshipping Him.
