Teach with love and caring while remaining loyal to the church

On October 8, 2013, Pope Francis announced to the world that in October of 2014 there would be an Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on topics related to the family and evangelization.

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.

Reflections on Jeremiah 31:3-4

“Young lady, everyone has hard times, these just happen to be yours!” I can still hear these words of my father ring in my ears at what was the lowest 
point in time of my personal life. My husband of 14 years had just left me and our 
two children for his secretary, I was currently unemployed, the ceiling had fallen in onto our living room after a violent thunder storm and it was six days before my mortgage payment was due. My circumstances were grim, and when I asked my father for financial help this had been his response.

A Tale of Tails

More than 73 years ago, three Lions from Detroit, Mich. had a dream that they could build a school to train dogs for people who are blind or visually impaired. Lions from all over the world helped this dream come true. Over 14,500 people have left Leader Dog, walking proudly, safely and independently with a Leader Dog harness in their left hand full of Lion love in the form of a guide dog.

The magic of Christmas, from your Lions

It’s the time of year when happiness prevails, joy and peace are in the air and when most take time to stop, look around and take a deep breath. The children dream of twinkling lights, beautifully wrapped presents under the tree and a warm meal with their loved ones. This is such a cheerful thought and the wish of most adults, to keep the magic of Christmas alive in the memories of our children.

Events galore for local Lions

Time seems to fly by faster each year. It seems like yesterday we were playing baseball and football, hosting a rodeo, having family picnics and getting together to celebrate our independence at the Eagle River Lions Park.

World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day is held on November 14 each year. The day aims to increase an awareness of the effects of diabetes and its complications amongst the general population and professionals in a range of sectors. It is also hoped that the increased awareness will lead to more resources to fight the causes of diabetes and help fund research into improved treatment options.

Veterans - Your Community Needs You

Thanksgiving will come early this year to the wounded warriors stationed in the Wounded Warriors Transition Barracks at JEBR. Over five years ago the Chugiak Lions asked their commander what the club could do for our local heroes. To the Lions’ surprise, the answer was a “home cooked meal.” This started an annual tradition of providing the wounded warriors a Thanksgiving Dinner and another dinner at Easter.

“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.
