DON – FORMER VIETNAM VET – Part Five - April 16, 2011

E-mail Print PDF
Continuing a 7-part special by Richard F. Kontz on a Vietnam Vet he met while running the Bread of Life Christian Bookstore in 2015 through mid-2011.

Previously, I had found out how Don became an alcoholic in Vietnam, how he become a very angry and at times a very violent man, who lost his wife and family because of these...

No Greater Love

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:12-13 (ESV)

Once more Jesus emphasizes His command, “love one another.” Yet this time he qualifies the command: “…love as I have loved you.” Jesus does not love us with a warm fuzzy love (like the lint you might find in your pocket just out of the dryer). No, Jesus loves with actions. Jesus loves sacrificially. True love, as Jesus loves, considers the well-being of the object of that love first and foremost. Jesus displayed this greatest love by laying down his life for us, to cover our sins. Jesus...

On Aug. 11, prepare for a unique and exciting experience. The New Moon occurs during a Solar Eclipse. The Sun is in Leo, so you may experience confidence and joy. You may also learn to appreciate family time, creative endeavors, and how to not sweat the small stuff. Madame G encourages you to write out everything that is important and cross off the rest. You’re worth it.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Dear Aries, you’re intense and you run a little hot. That’s okay—you’re passionate. However, this passion can get ahead of you. Also, you can’t be passionate about everything all at once. It’s advisable to pick one thing that’s really important to you and work on that. When you...

Letter to the Editor: Respect natural habitats, sacred sites

E-mail Print PDF
Editor,

Gallup, New Mexico, called “Nanizhozhi” in Dine’ (Navajo), is indeed a “crossing point” that all roads lead to and where a rainbow of cultures live and thrive. Obviously, it places an emphasis on the Native American culture and settings in just about every aspect that can produce a profit in the “Indian Capital of the World”.

One of the attractions that Gallup has marketed is the trails that lead into the nearby Red Rock mountains, of which the City takes absolutely zero responsibility for when it advertises the scenic paths and are now littered with trash left behind by the visitors who traverse the trails.

They disrespect the land by leaving their trash and...

On Aug. 4, prepare for the awesome power of the Last Quarter Moon in the Sun sign Leo. Prepare for a “crisis of conscience.” Do not fear this transformative power. Allow it to lend you strength. Now is the time to sort through what works and what doesn’t. You have the power to change your life. Madame G salutes you. We’re all in this together. God speed!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Dear Aries, what will you do? Will you continue to wallow in self-hatred, anger, and destruction? Perhaps you should consider another path. You may always feel the pull of the destructive power of anger, but that doesn’t mean you have to give in. In the end, the only one you really hurt is...
