The Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce thanks the many volunteers who assisted us in putting together this year’s Red, White and Boom fireworks celebration. These volunteers give up their family time for the good of the community, and we are grateful for their help! Presented by Vision Community Management at the Ahwatukee Country Club, the Chamber is proud to continue this 39-year Ahwatukee tradition.
I drove by the Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course the other day when the wind was up. It was odd to see dust blowing across the course. There was something forlorn about it. On the other hand, it seemed like the desert was reclaiming its own. On Ash Wednesday, millions of Christians received the sign on the cross on their foreheads in ashes with the admonition, “remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” It is the spoken decree of God in Genesis 3:19 as Adam and Eve are tossed out of the garden. There is something powerful yet troubling about those words. I remember one year marking the cross on a beautiful baby and nearly choking on what seemed to be such a dark proclamation. She was not a year old, just how depraved could she be?
