Trusting In The Power Of Prayer

St. Mary, our neighborhood Catholic Church, is concerned about the direction of the country. It has set up a tent on a brisk autumn day and is asking people to pray for America. When I walked by this afternoon, about two dozen people had answered the call.

I’m not a religious person, but I applaud efforts by those of faith to help the country in their own way. I don’t know if prayer will help, but it sure can’t hurt. And as we try to deal with the hurt and rage many people are feeling right now, we can use all of the help we can get.

A Feel-Good Holiday Story

UJ doesn’t have a monopoly on positive postings to this blog!  Check out the inspirational story of Faith, the dog born without front legs who has learned to walk upright on her hind legs. Faith now makes dozens of appearances each year, including a number of appearances at veterans’ hospitals across the country.  Not surprisingly, many disabled veterans find her example inspiring, and she apparently is a particular favorite of children.  A YouTube video showing Faith in all her glory is below.
