Nature Connection: Of Waiting And Patience

By: Mary Richmond

It is pouring rain outside my window as I write on this dark morning. By the time you read this, an election may be decided, and the world may be changing, at least in terms of hopefulness or despair.

By: Russ Allen

“Mr. [Stephen S.] Foster kept his feet and held the crowd at bay, showing our religion to be falsehood and hypocrisy, when [Captain Stillman Snow], a member of the orthodox [Congregational] church, who had just come from his meeting (and it was said from the sacrament), leaped like a lion onto the platform.
