Can you imagine anything as silly as defining marriage as
something other than a union between a man and woman?
It's almost as silly saying killing babies isn't murder...oh
wait, we do that. How about saying that taking money from one person and giving
it to another isn't stealing...oh wait, we call that wealth redistribution. OK,
it's almost as silly as saying that wanting something you can't afford isn't
coveting...oh wait, we can buy it now and pay later.
Come on, America! How much farther will we allow our society
to be sucked into the abyss of relativism?
Besides, if you're content to define what's right and wrong
on your own, then why do you need society's stamp of approval on your

Concerning the Holy Spirit and abortion, the spirit himself
is the bond of love between the Father and the Son. He unites the human family,
whereas abortion divides it.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord
and Giver of Life. Christians pray these
words each Sunday as they worship God in churches throughout the world. At the
same time, the life which the Holy Spirit gives is being attacked and destroyed
by abortion. In the United States alone, some 4,000 children are legally killed
each day by this surgical procedure.
For people filled with the Spirit, this is a tragedy that
cannot possibly be ignored.

Hospital a treasure
This entire Valley needs to know what a treasure it has in
Sunnyside Community Hospital.
After numerous times with family members and myself in ER,
and most recently as an in-patient for several days, I experienced first-hand
the quality of care this hospital provides. All of the staff—from admitting to
pre-op, through the operating room to post-op and continuing daily care—plus
Dr. Elerding and Dr. Wrung, were extremely kind, very professional, thorough,
considerate and caring.
The beautiful facility and private rooms are quiet and very
comfortable. Having spent several times in a large hospital
in metropolitan Los Angeles, I will take this
wonderful, small town hospital any day.
Thank you to every one of the staff there who made my
experience as good as it can be for the circumstances.
