Reflections at Christmas Time

This morning, I’m sitting at my desk reflecting upon Christ’s return that was the topic of a recent worship service. Each scripture read was filled with encouragement and certainty of Christ coming again. After reading a scripture, the preacher would ask, “Are you ready for his return?”

A conflict worthy of Christian prayer

As news interest regarding activity in the Middle East has turned away from the conflict between Hamas and Israel with the current focus on covering U.S. involvement in the coalition attempting to thwart the threat of militant Islamic groups in Iraq, an Eagle River pastor continues to remind the members of his church and other community members to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. He also encourages Americans to look behind the mainstream media in an effort to be better educated regarding current events in the Middle East.

Donate your out-of-prescription eyeglasses

Donating your old eyeglasses can save someone in a developing nation from unemployment. With the cost of glasses equaling a year’s salary in some countries, donated eyeglasses are the only feasible way to bring sight to many visually impaired.

Thank You for Tree of Giving and Food Baskets

Each year the Eagle River Lions gather food supplies from the local elementary school to assist in the preparation of 50 food baskets for the needy in our community. All with the can and dried goods, they provide each family with gift cards to purchase the meat of their choice. Our community was very supportive of this request for assistance allowing our club to provide the families with meals for the holiday seaon.

“Statehood”

The shouting is over, but the joy and enthusiasm lingers on! I’m speaking, of course, about Congressional approval of statehood for this great country of ours. It was a memorable occasion for the majority of Alaskans the day the word was flashed instantaneously by the miracle of teletype. After years of struggle, red tape, delay and what-not, the victory was finally ours.
