  • A Reading from John 14:15-21:

  • It seems to me that I used to remember things better than I do now. Lately it seems that little things I used to have no trouble remembering just slip through the cracks. For example, I’ll head out to go to the bank and the post office and I’ll either forget the check I want to deposit or the envelope I want to mail.
    It has gotten to the point that I double and triple check before I leave the house. Sometimes I make a list of things I need to take with me, things I need to get done, and then I forget the list. Now that is frustrating!

    Are there any computer software products that you know of that will let me help my parents with their computer issues from afar?

In this case we can look to the technique of rooting out softwood cuttings from the mother plant.

  • Today’s column is from a Sermon from Saint Luke 20:9-20.
    In the gospel of Saint Luke, Jesus tells a parable about people losing their lives in service to their master. Jesus begins the parable by saying: A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. The farmers worked the vineyard so that it would produce for the owner. They would get paid a portion of the harvest for their labor. This was how business was done back then. The rules were to be honored and obeyed.
