Faces of Faith — What we are celebrating this week

A little boy was sick on Palm Sunday one year and stayed home from church with his mother. His father returned from church holding a palm branch. The little boy was curious and asked, “Why do you have that palm branch, dad?” “Well you see son, when Jesus came into town, everyone waved palm branches to honor him, so we got palm branches at church today.”

Looking Back — Corner of 4th and Park

The building at 4th and Park streets in Aberdeen housed the Pay-N-Takit discount grocery in 1932. Later it became home to Russ Ellison’s Pontiac dealership, Caskey Industrial and is now home to Billy Bob’s Custom auto body and restoration shop. Except for the signage and replaced windows and paint, the building still looks pretty much the same.

Faces of Faith — An open hand

In our reading, John 9:1-41, we have the story of Jesus healing a man born blind. The story reminds me of the convictions each of us holds dear. We can hold them tightly to assure we live by them or, we can hold them gently in our open hands so others can see them and discuss them with us and adapt them for themselves. If the convictions are true, they will always be there but if we are holding onto something that is false, we might be able to see that at some point.

Looking Back — Broadway panorama

This panorama of 4th Street at Broadway circa 1905 shows how the road jogged over a bridge in the center. Both the curve and the bridge are gone now but most of the homes are still there, including the three in the middle foreground.
