Give control to God, our Father

Karl Terry Former Quay County Sun Editor   I believe that at some point in our lives nearly every human is moved to prayer.   For some that point of prayer may not come until danger, fear and uncertainty are real and all around. For others it’s an act done by appointment, performed at church, […]

Easter date varies with timing of Jewish Passover

We celebrate a lot of holidays and other special occasions. Most, like birthdays, are celebrated on the same date each year because we know that’s the date on which the event occurred. Christmas is an exception to that. We don’t actually know the date of Jesus’ birth, or even the year, but we know it […]

Thankful to friends for another outing to the canyons

Three friends, Yvette Peacock, Elizabeth Morris, and Susan Hamiton-Vick decided we needed to go the the canyons at lma again. Of course, I didn’t argue with them because there is no place I’d rater go. The clouds were gathering as we drove along thus making the trip more exciting than usual. We stopped at lma […]

Let Easter be your rebirth into the family of God

I took advantage of the cool still morning while the dogs were outside to take a peek at my garden. I knew it was too early to see anything but I could imagine what it would look like in a few weeks. I thought my eyes were deceiving me so I bent down further and […]

Good friends can help you find place to escape reality

Last Sunday, Yvette Peacock invited Elizabeth Morris and me to take a drive with her to Ima. Nothing could have been better, because those canyons are always calling. The drive was particularly special because I could just look at the scenery without putting hand to wheel or foot to pedal. Just being able to sit […]

Christ can save your skin from the closest of shaves

By Leonard Lauriault Religion Columnist I have a hate-hate relationship with shaving. I hate to shave, but I hate even worse not being clean-shaven every morning and I never get as close a shave as I’d like. Recently, the foil screen on my electric razor got a nick in it (sounds like karma, although read […]

Thank those who continue to work to improve our city

After having expressed our appreciation to the city and her employees for the great job they did in painting one of the rooms in the museum and rearranging exhibits, several people mentioned that we should also thank them for the improvements they have made at the cemetery. Although we have admired the graceful elm trees […]

Is there a loss of connection to God in this digital age?

Our society has a fixation with keeping connected to information or each other. I don’t usually get on my soap box as the step up leaves me vulnerable to falling off. However, I thought long and hard and prayed about this week’s column. The question to consider is what would happen if we were as […]

Freedom can be as simple as no bonnet blindness

A friend mentioned that she had been looking through some of her treasures and had come across a collection of sun bonnets. Of course, that evoked many memories of early life in those canyons at lma. Her collection included bonnets made of lace and other fancy materials. They held their shapes by having slats sewn […]

God’s divine influence can balance all, even a potluck

By Leonard Lauriault Religion Columnist Some of our church members drive 50+ miles each way on Sunday. Until a few years ago, they’d go home after morning worship, have lunch, and immediately begin the drive back for evening services. Several other families drive about 25 miles each way. Consequently, we moved our afternoon service to […]
