  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    Are there any easier alternatives to a colonoscopy to check for colon cancer? I’m in my sixties and would like to be tested, but hate the idea of drinking all that laxative solution, and being sedated for the procedure.

  • The Gospel reading for today’s message is from John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

If you can understand these few verses, they will be the cause of great joy and allow you to protect your faith against false teachings. Let us take some time and mine the riches of John 3:16.

  • A little boy was sick on Palm Sunday 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?” “You see, when Jesus came into town, everyone waved palm branches to honor him, so we got palm branches today.” The little boy replied, “Really?, No way! The one Sunday I miss is the Sunday that Jesus shows up.”

    When Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the crowds were going wild.

  • Maybe the problem is that I am getting older, but I think there is more to it than that. I think we live in confusing times. And I am really not talking about national or world news, though we all know there is plenty of confusion there! I’m just thinking of everyday kinds of things.
