Once upon a time, I thought about calling this column “Mad as Hell.”
Most buyers don’t want to pay for mortgage insurance because it benefits the lender by covering just the lender’s loan losses if the loan goes bad and the property is foreclosed.
Trailer parks cause tornados or, maybe, they just attract them. I’ve heard that discussion. I humbly suggest that there is a connection between violent weather and fragile homes.
The Lord called me into the ministry in June 1988. I was listening to a sermon entitled “Are Ye Able?” God impressed upon my heart to preach His Word. On Jan. 1 1991, I held my first service in Okanogan. I was tested right away on God’s Word, specifically the deity of Jesus Christ. One might think Jesus’ deity is a given in any evangelical church, but wolves in sheep’s clothing can creep in. I studied the Word of God to share the truth of Jesus Christ with them. He is God.
Conservation funding flooded into the Walla Walla Valley last summer from the Bonneville Power Administration, Bureau of Reclamation, Department of Ecology and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.
When employees paid an hourly wage realize the boss is short-changing their paycheck, they have every right and the resources to get it resolved under state and federal rules that protect them. But what can a salaried employee do who has an ever-expanding workday and a paycheck that is unaffected by the number of hours worked? People paid a salary
Today is a bad day. It’s snowing and I can’t get out of my driveway. My neighbor, who usually empties my driveway of snow, is in Mexico. He took his snow blower with him. This makes me very sad. What makes me even more sad is that I have to complete my tax planner today. Thursday, I meet with my accountant, and tomorrow I have plans with my Bestie. Consequently, today is the day. I can put it off no longer.
It’s been a busy month for Curiosity since last month’s column, with some great news and a few problems. First, the great news.
When we read Genesis in English, it appears that there are two accounts of creation. Does this seem strange? We have to be careful to look beneath the surface when we study something written 2,000 to 3,000 years ago. Genesis was written in an ancient language, coming from a vastly different time and culture than ours.
So many readers have shared with me the one question they’d ask God. Thank you! Here’s another selection along with my comments. For the authoritative answers, you’re going to just have to wait for The Boss to get around to you. Q: When I was 5 years old, I was in the family car coming home from Brighton Beach in Brooklyn and I saw God in the sky. I would ask God, “Why I was able to see you and what did it mean?” (I’ve never seen Him again.) — D. MG: What did God look like? The problem with all theophanies (experiences of God) is that we never know if they’re hallucinations or the real deal. The deeper problem with your story is that it changes faith from something you believe in and trust in and hope for into something you saw on the way home from the beach. By the way, did you eat a hot dog from a beach vendor before you saw God? Just asking.
Is there a pressing community issue you think should be addressed?
In 1817 Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to George Ticknor, the first professor of modern languages at Harvard College and co-founder of the Boston Public Library, sharing his vision of access to education for all citizens in the fledgling democracy, the United States of America.
When I brought Charlie home from the Blue Mountain Humane Society he had to learn the rules of a new home, and I had no idea how to explain rules to a dog.
I watched a video of the movie “Argo” as I flew into Tehran recently. I couldn’t help but wonder why I was willingly accompanying a group of Americans into a city that not so long ago was the scene of one of the greatest exfiltrations ever. I wondered if Ben Affleck would rescue me if things were to go poorly.
