Reflections on Creches

 

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. {9} And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. {10} And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. {11} For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. {12} And this...

I have several friends who are or who are dating musicians. Therefore, when we go out as a group the conversation often turns to music; old music, jazz and soul music. I hear a lot about theory, songs, and people who I do not know anything about. Most of this goes right over my head and I have to ask a lot of questions in order to figure out what they are discussing. I mean I didn't know what 5/4 meant.

Dear Editor,

 

Indiana lost a dedicated and long time public servant and I lost a mentor and good friend when Senator Potch Wheeler died on Monday. Potch served locally as a trustee, a county commissioner, a school board member and a hospital board member. He served Senate District 17 for 19 years in the Indiana Senate. He was highly regarded at the state level and for 14 years he was elected Caucus Chairman by his peers in the Senate.

Potch used to like to joke that he was just an old...
