Valley News & Views Page 7 July 8th, 2010 The Pastor's Column Two hundred thirty four years ago this past Sunday, the American colonies declared their independence from British rule. About three weeks prior to this, Richard Henry Lee, of Virgina, "proposed a resolution in Congress that, 'these united Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States'" ("The American Tradition in Literature"). That was June 7, and on luly 2nd Lee's original resolution was voted on and passed. Two days later the Declaration of Independence was passed and signed by those present. From that day unto the present the United States of America has faced and overcome many challenges that threatened its very survival. The wars we have fought during that time are too numerous for us to list here. In my lifetime, which began shortly afterWWII and during the Korean Conflict, America has been almost continually challenged by enemies from without. If we were to .include the so- called "Cold War" with the old Soviet Union we could say that America has been engaged in some form of war throughout my lifetime. The most serious battle America has been engaged in is none of the obvious "-isms", Nazism, Fascism, Communism, or even today's primary enemy, radical We will be having some "Whimsical Wednesday" presentations in July. On July 7th, Ion Deschene from the Alzheimer's Association will give a presentation on "How To MaintainYour Brain". He will share tips and ideas on how to keep our brains active. Jon gave a presentation in June that dealt with symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. In this presentation he will share ideas on how to avoid Alzheimer's disease. Bev Aufenkamp will give a demonstration on July 14th on how to make garden towers. These are very interesting works of art made Citizen Pembina County Meals from a whimsical mix of colors, shapes and finishes. Items that can be used are stacked lamp bases, bowls, vases, candlesticks and cake stands in clear and colored glass, porcelain, and metal. The items are fastened together with a waterproof adhesive. The glass towers are a great way to create art from old or unused items that may be sitting around your house or garage. Bev will demonstrate how to make the garden towers on July 14th, and then on July 28th we will have a "Whimsical Wednesday" session where people can bring in their own items and Bey will assist "Islam-ism". Our greates national threat is highlighted in two passages from the book of Psalms. Psalm 20:7 says, "some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God." Psalm 33:17 adds, 'm horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength." The most serious challenge America faces today is whether to trust God or ourselves. Dow we need God, or will we trust ourselves? Will we "remember the name of the Lord our God" who has been with us since before we were declared independent? you in putting together your own garden tower. Public Health will give a presentation on July 21st titled "Cleaning Out The Medicine Cabinet". They will talk about how long to keep prescription and over the counter drugs and how to dispose of them. On July 28th we will have a "make your own garden tower" whimsical Wednesday and Bev Aufenkamp will assist anyone who brings in items for a garden tower.
