We can see already the progression the movement has taken. They kill babies in the womb at any age. Assisted suicide goes on and on. Soon people with certain disabilities will have to be disposed of. The elderly need to be watchful. Then who will they get rid of - certain races? Attitudes that differ? It is a fearful thing when man takes killing into his own hands.

Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name m When I look at the heavens, the work of thy fingers, and the stars which thou has established, what is care for him?" Psalms 8:1 and 3 We have been richly blessed the past few days weather. I understand that the fish are biting as well the joy of a lovely springevening. Days like today make t of one year ago worthwhile. I continue to find great delight in watching the moon stars. The writer of Psalm 8 was Kina David...also a stars taught him of the greatness of (kxi, filled him with wonder and awe and caused him to reflect on God' humankind. I am reminded of a story from the life of Dick comedian and activist. Gregory once took his son to they stayed in a hut without electricity. One night his son and said, "Dad, dad, come here. I'm scared. I want tc something." Gregory says that he went out and his son the stars. It suddenly dawned on him that having raised in Chicago, with so much light and so many boy had never seen a sky full of stars. Together they ground, looking at the stars. Gregory comments on the as follows: "I cried that night; not for him, he had never many stars, but for me. I grew up looking at the stars hooked into the vicious cycle of living 1 never r : 7embe they left. I got so hooked into this chase that I never stars." I suggest that you take the time to look at the star, especially brilliant this time of year. The stars will ada breadth too your life. Remember...four stargazers were first to find the Christ child. And...pray the following: "Radiant Lord, we rejoice with hearts filled with You are not a hidden God, for You reveal Yourself daily tl mystery of light. Your majesty and glory shine out frqm' . creation, and from sun, moon and stars. Blessed are you, God, who has filled creation with light and splendor.' .. Prayers for the DoVe'it !

Some target kids but most are concerned about how disrespectful adults are in their work with each other and children. Respect is learned by watching others' behaviors. It is learned by example every minute of every day. I have been an'educator for many years and have learned the best way to know a skill well is to learn it good enough to teach it. I can't help but think if we as parents and other adults who affect children's lives know how to teach respect to children, it will in turn, improve how respectful we are to others. Since children learn this skill of respect primarily by the way adults around them treat people respectfully, it is important to know how to show children respect. Here are some important tips for showing respect for children. o Apologize to children when you're wrong. It is important to tell the child you are sorry. Apologies that are specific and simple show children that you respect their feelings and feel sorry for your behavior. o Be courteous and respectful in ordinary daily requests Talk with your child about your thoughts and motives for respecting others. o Use Thank you. Please. and Excuse me. Using good manners teaches children to care about others. o Avoid disciplining children in Public, especially in front of their friends. It is helpful, when disciplining, to establish rules, set limits, and determine what the consequences will be if they are not followed before the child misbehaves in public. If the child misbehaves, pull the child aside and handle the situation privately with him. Use a direct, firm, but always respectful tone of voice. Respect Can Be Taught Not only must children be treated respectfully, but parents, teachers and caregivers must also consciously work to teach respect to children. The following are some strategies to use t;ents On is intent be':_ m ag ' "'esen when teaching o Help children themselves. Cam when she does Children need to givers as well as o Show approval. show empathy o Prov o Help children feelings of others. empathy in youth aware of others' reasons they feel o Talk about the selfishness.

What starts as a phase in youth becomes a lifelong addiction. Tobacco use among Minnesota teens is on the rise with more than 1 in 4 high school seniors smoking daily. How do kids get tobacco products? In the majority of cases they buy their own. In fact, they say it is quite easy to purchase cigarettes or other tobacco products. The State's Youth Access Law is making it more difficult for teenagers today to purchase these products. State and that illegal tobacco communities that tobacco ordinance in I available to mere employees to assist youth access and new state law. There are some community that sell tobacco people need to be their efforts in stO minors.
