Giving Up For Lent

BY GRETCHEN RONNEVIK

Our church doesn’t talk a lot about giving up things for Lent. Lent seasons means we have Sunday night services as well, where we bring in speakers who talk about a different theme each year—usually surrounding the idea of the suffering of Christ. It fits because Lent is the season in the liturgical church calendar when we reflect on the suffering of Christ.

A King for a Criminal

BY KYLE G JONES AND KATHY STRAUCH

No greater injustice exists than to declare the innocent guilty and the guilty innocent. For the one guilty of irreparable harm to walk off scot-free offends our conscience. But, for the innocent one to pay for the crimes of the guilty assaults the very notions of truth, morality, and justice we hold dear.
