If it was up to me

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—Fifty years ago, I was a teenager. Boy, do I miss those Days of Yore. It's not that I would like to relive them, but I was a much different person back then. As a teenager, I knew everything, and all you had to do was ask me. Even if you didn't ask me, I still would tell you what was on my mind. I wished I knew everything today because people are asking me questions I can’t even answer. A teenager is someone between being a baby and being an adult. I sure don't want to be a baby, and I've had misgivings about...

A divided house makes a happy home
2/10/2021 2:41:32 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Never has our world been more divided than today. Politics, religion, sports and on and on I could go. For the most part, so many people think being divided is a negative thing. And for many people it is. However, after being married to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage for almost 50 years, I have discovered that a divided house can be a very happy house. It just depends on how you are divided and what divides you. That makes all the difference in the house. Being married as long as I have been does not make me an expert in this area. I am only an...

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “When I was 17, I set up my first voter registration table helping to sign up people to vote long before I was old enough to do so. By December, I’d made it, and when I turned 18, I registered to vote. In 1992, I helped set the course of America—I was one small voice, but I was part of a mighty wave of young people from around the country who were tired of war, tired of poverty, tired of being left behind. Not everything changed that election, and we’re still fighting some of the same battles, but...

By Jay Reeves   BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP)—Coronavirus cases have dropped at U.S. nursing homes and other long-term care facilities over the past few weeks, offering a glimmer of hope that health officials attribute to the start of vaccinations, an easing of the post-holiday surge and better prevention, among other reasons.

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “This is a time of testing. We face an attack on democracy and on truth. A raging virus. Growing inequity. The sting of systemic racism.
