Block Party 2017

Was this the best one yet? We all had a marvelous time at our 12th annual Arnett Block Party on Saturday, August 5th. Volunteers started arriving at 9:00 am, and by noon when the party started we were up and Bob Puff had us all rocking to the Gospel! Seven churches pitched in with music, break dancing, a magic show, amazing bubbles, the bike clinic, and basketball hoops, jump rope, and hula hoop contests. And, can you believe it, there wasn’t a single bad incident, not even with the snakes and spiders in the Creeping Things booth! Kids...

Easter Invitations

Easter Invitations

Have you been invited? “Hey, do you want to come to church with us on Easter?” You may have heard this or something similar from a friend, co-worker or family member. Depending on where you live, perhaps you’ve already received a mailer or two about a local church service. Maybe you’ve wondered why Christians like me won’t just leave you alone. I assure you, it’s not because we like imposing ourselves on others. In fact, for many of us, it’s just the opposite. On a recent Sunday, I stood up at Moody...

Facebook Dead?

Facebook Dead?

Facebook Dead, A Victim Of 2016 by Bethany Mandel Since the end of the 2016 election, and especially since it resulted in the victory of Donald J. Trump as president, Facebook has become utterly intolerable. If I were to write an obituary for Facebook, it might look something like this: Facebook, The, 12, of Boston died in the early months of 2017, after a long illness stemming from the 2016 election cycle. Born of Mark Zuckerberg, survived by Instagram. In lieu of flowers, please click on an ad on the Facebook sidebar while you check...

March for Life 2017

Is the tide turning? An article published in The Washington Post today reported that thousands of abortion opponents gathered in cold, blustery weather near the Washington Monument Friday and heard Vice President Mike Pence tell the annual March for Life that the Trump administration is determined to advance the fight against abortion. The massive crowd [estimated to be nearly 400,000], bearing flags, banners and placards, then flowed down Constitution Avenue, filling the street, and rallied at the Supreme Court building across from the...

Women Marching

A look into local history In an article published in the Washington Post this week written by one of Rochester’s strongest feminist supporters, Carol Crossed, and a descendent of Susan B. Anthony, Eric Anthony, the authors make the following unpolitically correct observation: “Unlike March organizers, Anthony and many of her feminist compatriots were staunchly opposed to abortion.” The article continues: “Those of us at the Susan B Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, Mass., are saddened that the museum honoring this...

Hate Speech?

Jennifer Holliday is backing out of performing at Trump’s inauguration celebration after receiving backlash from her fans. Holliday, best known for her Tony-winning role in Broadway’s “Dreamgirls,” faced pressure from her gay, lesbian and black fans when it was announced she would sing at a Thursday concert at Washington’s Lincoln Memorial. In an interview with The Associated Press on Friday, Holliday defended her decision to perform at the inauguration, saying she did not realize that her participation would be...

Happy New Year!

2016 has been a banner year for our internal growth as a ministry to individuals, families, and the neighborhoods that surround us. We’ve made great strides in patient care, counseling, community outreach, and strategic planning.
