Laity Sunday to be Celebrated this Sunday (10/19/14)
In the United Methodist Church, we’re all “Ministers.” Those ministers among us who wear robes and stoles are called Clergy. Those ministers who wear choir robes and aprons are called Laity.

Taking Place Sunday, January 18 through Saturday, January 24
We’ve scoured the seemingly unending list of options for the winter installment of San Diego Restaurant Week 2015 and narrowed them down to our top seven dinner picks (though lunch is also offered at many locations).

I transferred from the 2-228th Theatre Fixed Wing Battalion at Fort Dix, NJ to the 406th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion located here in Michigan, then I moved on from being a chaplain candidate to pinning on my cross and becoming a chaplain, and last month I received my promotion orders and was promoted from 1st Lieutenant to Captain in the United States Army Reserve. But there has been one thing that hasn’t changed…
