  • Hearing laughter from one of the rooms where a Bible study class was meeting Sunday morning, I cracked opened the door and teased, “What’s this, laughter in church?”
    They answered with more laughter.
    And why not laugh in church? There certainly is a time for being quiet and even for sadness. As the author of Ecclesiastes wrote, “There is an appointed time for everything…” including, “a time to cry and a time to laugh.”

  • Jane Bell isn’t afraid to try new things.
    Last year, that included taking up gardening for the first time at the age of 64.

    A new pool can quickly turn a yard into the “it” spot to spend vacations or cool off at the end hot summer days.

    No driver wants to make roads less safe, and many may just need to reacquaint themselves with the following defensive driving techniques they learned way back when they first started driving as teenagers.
