Try to be ready

I just received news that my favorite uncle is close to passing away. He had cancer a few years ago that went into remission but recently it returned. The good news is that he has trusted Christ for forgiveness and has assurance of where he will end up after death.

See yourself in the light of His word

The older one gets and the more one tries to do, the more the years seem to fly by. From time to time we need to reflect on what is going on in our lives. Most will do this about school, jobs, finances, etc., and it is good to do those things. But let us not forget to look at our spiritual well being.

Another side to illegal immigration

Dear Editor: The past few days, we as a nation have seen controversy rise in the state of Arizona over its new law, requiring law enforcement agents to ask for identification papers of those they suspect to be illegal immigrants. This seems to be focused more towards illegal Mexican aliens, since Arizona does border Mexico, and while most of us think of Mexicans when we hear "illegal immigrants," we need to remember that illegal aliens come from all corners of the globe, be it Mexico, China and many other countries. But while we need to remember that this law is ...
