The Constitution prohibits a state religion and that is all. They must convince Christians that there is no place for social issues like abortion in politics Only vote for someone who can get you more money and benefits. Next they will convince you there is no need for concern with our freedoms in politics, just vote for someone who can get you more money and benefits. I read a lot about getting God out of the government, they have to do it to appease their guilt. We must keep God in us and vote a way that would please Him. Trust Him to take care of your money and benefits. Prairie Five menu Reservations may be made by calling the Senior Center.

Think About These Things" by Rev. Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE As we continue to improve water quality in this area, I think to PJ Long and her family. PJ was active in the of Dr. Mike Sampson. Dr. Sampson was affiliated with led the effort to launch a Big Stone County recycling program in 1989. She also gave leadership to Earth Day 1990. At that she wrote a brief essay, "Who Will Wash the River." I saved a and I pass it along to you. Reflect on: One of Earth's most precious resources is her water, a which has been recycled for millions of years. Water never created or destroyed, they are simply recirculated over again. The water that once kept Jesus alive now flows in: veins, and on more than one occasion, you've probably shared bath water with a dinosaur. From outer space, the brilliant blue color of our watery Earth c inated the solar system. Water exists nowhere else in the And even on earth, water is truly scarce; less than one earth's water is useable. The rest is salty or frozen into ice Expecting clean, fresh water to flow from our faucet at the turn wrist, we easily forget how rare it really is. Nobody who has enced a drought would ever knowingly waste water. But what the water we unknowingly waste? Water contaminated garbage disposal habits, poisoned from either incinerator ash noxious brew, leachate, which leaks from our landfills. All of Earth's water is shared and circulated among us. Since beginning of time, dirty water has been purified by nature itself then recycled for others to use. But humankind is so swiftly severely poisoning our water that even nature's magic can no clean it. If we continue as we are, then who will wash the We've come a long way since PJ wrote those words. She great help and we are grateful. Birthdays As Taken From The Big Stone American Legion Auxiliary Birthday Calendar.

Think About These Things" by Rev. Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE As we continue to improve water quality in this area, I think to PJ Long and her family. PJ was active in the of Dr. Mike Sampson. Dr. Sampson was affiliated with led the effort to launch a Big Stone County recycling program in 1989. She also gave leadership to Earth Day 1990. At that she wrote a brief essay, "Who Will Wash the River." I saved a and I pass it along to you. Reflect on: One of Earth's most precious resources is her water, a which has been recycled for millions of years. Water never created or destroyed, they are simply recirculated over again. The water that once kept Jesus alive now flows in: veins, and on more than one occasion, you've probably shared bath water with a dinosaur. From outer space, the brilliant blue color of our watery Earth c inated the solar system. Water exists nowhere else in the And even on earth, water is truly scarce; less than one earth's water is useable. The rest is salty or frozen into ice Expecting clean, fresh water to flow from our faucet at the turn wrist, we easily forget how rare it really is. Nobody who has enced a drought would ever knowingly waste water. But what the water we unknowingly waste? Water contaminated garbage disposal habits, poisoned from either incinerator ash noxious brew, leachate, which leaks from our landfills. All of Earth's water is shared and circulated among us. Since beginning of time, dirty water has been purified by nature itself then recycled for others to use. But humankind is so swiftly severely poisoning our water that even nature's magic can no clean it. If we continue as we are, then who will wash the We've come a long way since PJ wrote those words. She great help and we are grateful. Birthdays As Taken From The Big Stone American Legion Auxiliary Birthday Calendar.
