UCC President to Speak at Gay Megachurch – The leader United Church of Christ will welcome the Cathedral of Hope, a predominately gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender megachurch in Dallas, into the United Church of Christ this Sunday. He will be the first leader of a mainline denomination to speak at such a church. The […]
What do you think of Senator Hillary Clinton’s joke when she was in Iowa? I don’t think she should go down that road. It isn’t going to help her in her campaign for president. She isn’t running well here. Latest Zogby poll says she is third – way behind John Edwards and Barak Obama, and […]
I just read a great blog post from “Serving the Community” on eyesturnedoutward.com. We do need to engage our community with the love of Jesus, serving in practical ways without an agenda.
In the Des Moines Register today (ok, looking at the time, yesterday), “Senate Oks Bullying Bill; it now heads to House”. I blogged on this last Friday. I contacted my State Senator, Dick Dearden (D-34). He replied: Thank you for your e-mail. I appreciate hearing from constituents The bill includes all students but the enumeration […]
Chery likes to write, and I’ve encouraged her to create a blog and she has resisted. Last night however she finally entered the world of blogging. Check out her blog, Organized Chaos.
I think I’m going to have something to blog about everyday with the new Iowa Legislature, Governor, and U.S. Congress. Wednesday the Iowa Senate Education Committee passed Anti-Bullying (Senate Study Bill 1048) Bill. The Des Moines Register states that the bill would: “require public and private schools to have policies that prevent and punish bullying […]
Ugh, not long in office and he is already doing it. The Des Moines Register reports that our new Governor, Chet Culver, wants to give $12.5 Million of taxpayer money for a stem cell research center at the University of Iowa. He will also ask our Democratic controlled Legislature to lift a ban on a […]
California Assemblywoman Sally Lieber (D-Mountain View) wants to outlaw spanking of children under three years of age. Lieber told the San Francisco Chronicle last week, “I think we out to have a law against beating children.” No problem, Assemblywoman Lieber, you already do. It is already illegal to beat children in the state of California, […]
My friend, Chris, who is a chaplain with the Army Reserve, is serving in Iraq. In his blog, he shared some encouraging news about how the Gospel is being spread in Iraq. I am including the entire post below. “Tonight during worship, I asked for prayer requests. One of the people who attends my service […]
I just read an article at Christianity Today about Christ Church in New Jersey who needs to build a new sanctuary. The suburb they are located in “approved” their request with 45 conditions. Things like – you can’t have Friday or Sunday night services, Bible studies on Wednesday night only, two hour break in between […]
I wanted to provide you a link to an excellent article written by Greg Koukl from Stand to Reason on Townhall.

I couldn’t sleep, so I just read what Senator Harkin posted on the Huffington Post blog (I read it to see what those on the other side of the debate are thinking – caution, be prepared to ranting, raving in the comments section. Definitely full of anti-Bush lingo with some profanity.) The post title was […]
I just read an article on Fox News about a Ontario boy who now legally has two moms and a father. What basis does the lesbian partner of the boy’s mother claim legal status as a parent? How is it that she has the same rights as the boy’s father? This is incredible, incredibly ridiculous. […]
