Wanda is a 4-year-old beautiful Lemon Beagle that was a shelter dog rescued by Arizona Beagle Rescue. She was a bit chubby but has lost a few pounds and is now pretty close to her target weight. Wanda is housebroken, gets along with other dogs, rides great in a car, walks great on a leash and can use the doggie door. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house and snooze wherever she happens to be. If she likes you, she will give you her paw and loves to give kisses. Wanda is timid around men so it will take her some time to warm up and be comfortable. She would be a faithful companion for any family.

As we approach Thanksgiving, and the weeks that seem to race towards Christmas, there’s plenty to be grateful to God for in our lives. Thanksgiving invites us to take time to consider all of our blessings. While some of us may be thrilled with the material things of life, many of us look around and realize that the most important things in life aren’t things at all. They’re our relationships. That’s our relationship with God in Christ Jesus, as well as our relationships with family, friends, and neighbors. Shortly after Thanksgiving, Christians begin another season of intentional reflection: the season of Advent. Since we’re giving thanks and taking time to celebrate all our relationships, let’s take a closer look at the one relationship that changed the world.
Ahwatukee Foothills News staff members travel down memory lane to share what the holidays mean to us
Have you ever walked through a season in your life you thought might break you? I’m not talking about the everyday stuff. We’re each going to wrestle with our share of broken air conditioners in July, cranky bosses, and family feuds. I’m talking about soul crushing, heart wrenching times when getting through the days takes a herculean effort. When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.
Forty is a significant number in the Bible, and there are many instances of something happening for 40 days or 40 years.

Four years ago, I entered into a whole new chapter of my life through my role at Mountain View Lutheran Church. Since then, I’ve reflected many times on my experiences – both the good and the “what was I thinking” moments. Admittedly, I came into my role with a bit of arrogance. You know – the “I don’t have much experience, but I’ve read a few books about it” type of raw talent that doesn’t fool many for long. Little did I know that a humbling four years was knocking on the door.
Those who abhor public prayer are at it again. They are offended by reference to deity among other things. There have always been those who do not recognize the unseen (“God cannot be proven”), never mind that they live in an age of invisible power, which keeps cell phones and computers running. And, what about our invisible human energy, love and hate, which packs a punch; creates and changes civilization?
Each November, we honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans for good reason: those who served in uniform — and their families — have kept our nation free.

I am not suggesting for a moment that my extended family is weirder than any one else’s. I am also not suggesting that we are any less weird. Chances are pretty good that we fit under that 68.4 percent normal distribution bulge in the bell curve of weirdness. When it comes to religion, we are all over the place.

I rely on the AFN as an important source for local news and services, and I occasionally look at the Opinion page. The statement in a recently published letter by Don Crook that “I know that Obama is a Muslim” is not an opinion, it is an obvious and destructive falsehood. Even political opponents of the President have responded to comments like this by saying that they “take the President at his word” for his Christian faith. The theme of this letter is that President Obama is out “to destroy America.”
