By Rev. Judi Wiegman

We have been teaching a class in Sunday school called Manna.  It is all about living on God’s daily provision and being content with each day.  The discussion has been strong as different class members share the experiences of life along their journey.  Each week we have all gone home carrying a new perspective on what it means to really trust God for the daily provisions of our life. This class is really growing us, and for some, stretching has occurred.

“Is there a way to verify if someone is legitimately selling prepaid funeral services?”

Question:  My mother would like to purchase her funeral now while she is alive.  I’ve heard of being able to pay for a funeral in advance, but want to make sure my mother isn’t getting scammed. Is there a way to verify if someone is legitimately selling prepaid funeral services?

The last time the Golden Wolves were 7-0, in Coach Young’s first year in Dalhart, the Rangers put an end to the Wolves winning streak and Dalhart left Perryton 7-1.  This time the Wolves scored 41 unanswered points before the Rangers even knew what hit them in a game that could have been much higher scoring as the Wolves showed a lot of nerves in the first half of the big game and dropped at least two wide open touchdown passes from Noah Jesko, and took themselves out of scoring position with several untimely mistakes.  However, the night belonged to the Dalhart defense who held Perryton’s passing game to only four completions with two interceptions, while the offensive line opened gaping holes in the Perryton defense at will in the second half, allowing the Wolves to run for 265 yards, and if not for penalties, that could have easily been over 300 yards.  The Wolves are now tied for first place in the district setting up a showdown with 1-0 Borger, who defeated Pampa 28-7, next week in Borger.

Makin’ Room

The church announced a progressive dinner and asked for host homes to “make it happen.”  I loved the thought of setting pretty tables and enjoying the laughter and fellowship of friends; so I signed up.  As the time approached, I heard there would be over 50 people coming to dinner!  Wow!  That’s a lot of people. I thought, “Where will I seat all of them?”

Question:  I enjoy tanning and I go somewhat frequently.  I noticed a lot of warning signs at the tanning salon and was wondering why they have so many warnings that should make me want to leave rather than tan.  Are tanning salons required to warn people about the dangers of tanning?
