  • Live nativity in Waddy Saturday

     Waddy has never had a well-known annual live nativity for its residents, but one church hopes to change that.

    “We will have angels, Mary and Joseph and a baby,” said Tiffanie Moore, New Life’s treasurer. “It’s not something you’d see everyday. It’s something that we, as a church, have come together to put on.”

  • A difficult relationship in Washington

    By Dave Charlton

    As a minister I have, over the years, spent many hours counseling with couples.

    Counseling is often difficult and frustrating work, as it involves the complicated work of unraveling many issues that are woven together in ways that seem impossible to untangle.

    When those very tangled issues are added to the deep-seated intractability that often plagues damaged relationships, the effort of the pastor/counselor to help the couple find solutions often seems next to impossible.

  • VAN STOCKUM: A vicarious visit to France: Part 3; Brittany’s northern coast

    Bothané

    When Susanne and I had visited Brittany in France in 1958, Jean-Michel Dunoyer de Segonzac picked us up at Quimperlé and drove us to their beautiful chateau Bothané, five miles distant. This had been the home of the great-grandfather of his wife Guillemette, Theodore Ducos, who had been Ministre de la Marine et des Colonies [Minister of the Navy and of the Colonies]. Guillemette had also informed me that it had been the headquarters of a German admiral after France had been overrun in World War II.
