San Francisco de Asís offers spiritual lift

San Francisco de Asís offers spiritual lift

Whenever we travel, we try to find a unique church to attend, and we have found some unusual ones in places and languages we didn’t expect. We once came upon a tiny church in the middle of nowhere, while on a camping trip. On the unlocked door was a sign that read, “Sunday Mass at 11:00 a.m.” We went inside, took a seat on one of the four pews, and waited. Shortly before 11 a.m., a priest appeared at the door with a suitcase in hand. He proceeded to set up the altar and offered Mass for us and our children. What an experience. Full Story »

Fond memories of VBS

Hearing about the need for workers for Vacation Bible School (VBS) recently brought to mind those years my sister and I spent some of the summer with our great-grandmother in Kansas. Grandma, whose name was Ora Etta Cylinda Tredway, always took us to VBS. While she worked preparing and passing out the snacks we enjoyed all the fun games and learning about Jesus. There were no themes but learning was fun and we got to play some fun games outside. How different it is now. The one constant though has been teaching from the scriptures and making it fun. The planning is happening already and those who volunteer to help are always looking for more workers. I’m sure there are lots of young people who have fond memories from their VBS years.

Cooking with seafood, a natural healthy choice

Since prehistoric times, man has seized a spear, fashioned a rod with string or tied a net together to pull a meal from streams and oceans. Even today, in some cultures, fishing is much more meaningful than just providing food. It’s a way of life, handed down and etched into the heredity. Taking food from the water was, and is, the most basic way to provide sustenance and survival. Full Story »
