    RICHARD TATE, Herald Columnist|Feb 2, 2023

    Linda Sollenberger|Feb 2, 2023

    Here we are at the beginning of February. It’s a month since we started the new year of 2023. We have been experiencing some cold, blustery, winter weather. Some people love this time of year, and for others, it feels bleak.

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Feb 2, 2023

    What is a leader? It is someone who provides direction, goals, motivation, and perhaps sets the pace for the group.

Since I write about religious or Biblical subjects, my definition of a leader is within certain perimeters. Israel is a three-dimension-people. They are first family; the offspring of Abraham,...
