My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

  • One of the best letters I have seen on the election last week in Ohio regarding public unions.

      Congratulations, Ohioans! We have now made these things very clear:

      1. Our state and local communities will continue to struggle financially. We simply cannot afford the services we want at the prices demanded by our public “servants.” Expect reduced services, layoffs and ugly reactions from both the public and the unions. It is fantasy to believe that unions will give up any meaningful benefits in order to help improve our finances. Higher taxes are the only solution, right?

      2. We have learned that only labor unions can determine safe practices and staffing levels for our hospitals, fire departments, police forces and schools. Our elected and appointed managers are simply incompetent in this regard. The unions must protect us from ourselves.

      3. The middle class in Ohio consists only of unionized public employees. We know this because we were told that Senate Bill 5 would “destroy the middle class” in Ohio. Well, that bill would have limited the bargaining rights only of public employees. Federal employees have fewer bargaining rights than do Ohio’s public employees, Does anyone believe they are less than middle class?

      This election seems to have put to rest the notion that the cost of government employees has something to do with whether the government can pay its bills.
