  • 'Walk a Day in Their Shoes'

    Oct 15, 2020

    To the Editor: It saddened me to learn from your column that there are Cove community “little birds” (as you called them) who seem to despise liberals and see them as a threat (“The Herald isn’t Marxist. I promise.”; Page A-4, July 9, 2020 edition of the Herald). To them, I recommend reading “Jesus Was a Liberal – Reclaiming Christianity for All” by the Rev. Scotty McLennan.

    Kelly Baker, Correspondent|Oct 15, 2020

    This past week I read an interesting footnote in my Bible. It said that followers of Jesus are not to separate themselves altogether from this world, but to act like yeast, causing the world's dough to rise, and that the whole purpose of God's laws and principles are to teach us how to repair the world. Wow. Repair the world. That sounds like a tall order. I considered going down the rabbit trail to see where it would take me, but a few inquiries revealed that it would be quite a process. My...
