Tornado Emergency

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

One short week ago, the morning began as a bright sunshiny day. My cell phone showed the possibility of showers but for all practical purposes the weather appeared fine. I was enjoying my backyard sanctuary, listening to praise music, playing words with friends and watching the many colorful birds stuffing their tummies at my birdfeeder. I was clueless that shortly, this would change and for many this day would go down in infamy.

Our local school board makes the decisions that determine how Dalhart’s children are educated and how our tax dollars are spent. The decisions made by the school board affect virtually every important aspect of local schools, from boundaries to bus schedules, curriculum to clubs, funding to field trips.
Voting for school board members is a simple but powerful way to support student success and strengthen the community, and Dalhart voters will soon have the opportunity to decide who will fill two at-large seats on the Dalhart Independent School District Board of Trustees.
Election Day is May 12. The 2012 field of four candidates includes: Mario Gomez, Doug Claborn, Boyd Barrow, and Reynaldo Encinias.

Story Time in Dalhart was full of surprises on Wednesday. Because the weather turned out cool and damp, the children of CUMC’s pre-school program did not make their usual trek across the street to the Dallam-Hartley County Library, which hosts the bi-weekly event.

His Last Pulpit

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

Baby Jesus’ first pulpit was the most unlikely of places, a manger!  A host of angels directed the shepherds to His lowly crib. His message spoke volumes to the shepherds as they gazed on this tiny human form of God. They must have wondered how He could fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament.

The Prize—A Donkey?

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

I enjoyed dreaming up scavenger hunts for teens in my young group at church.  Specific clues were given and the goal was to retrieve the prize and bring it to the base.
There is a scavenger hunt, of sorts, in the Bible.  Jesus was waiting just outside the village of Bethany. He gave instructions to two of His disciples and sent them into town. Their mission was to locate a young donkey tied up near a house. Think about it; there could be a donkey tied up by several houses.  A donkey is a donkey, right? No!
