Happy Holydays

by SLPAGE

The Holy Days are upon us!  That’s right!  I wish you Happy Holydays!  I do this without shame or reservation.  The etimology of the word “Holiday” comes from the words Holy Day.  Thus, when I wish someone “Happy Holidays” I am not committing an affront, or being blasphemous.  Rather, I am connecting all of these […]

I […]

Our old sign had fallen apart.  You could move the frame from side to side.  The […]

Time for a sabbatical

by SLPAGE

Part of the biblical call for the people of God is a built in period of rest.  We celebrate that time as sabbath.  It was a day set aside as a representation of God’s day of rest after the first creation story in Genesis; “And on the seventh day God finished the work he had […]
