How to recover from a bad V-Day

I might not have a designated valentine this year, but I spent a whole lot of years married, and I have been the recipient of some amazing Valentine's Day gifts and events. I have also been on the other end of the spectrum with some pretty awful experiences. So how does one recover from messing up what is supposed to be the one required day of the year for romance?

A view from the Georgia House

The House again saw only a handful of bills during our third week, but that situation won't last long, since the committees have begun to pump out a steady stream of new legislation. Our main work was getting out the "little budget," as the bill to adjust the current, fiscal year 2013 budget is called. This bill makes adjustments to reflect the actual rate at which revenue is coming in, and is also used to alter priorities on some programs. Revenue is off very slightly from projections (by less than 1 percent), so that part of the adjustment was ...

Kingdom Workers take spring break

When you think of college spring break, is volunteering for church work the first thing on your mind? For Ruth Wendland, Alison Wine, Lauren Maertz and Annette Scharf, apparently, it is. Skipping the more traditional spring break locations, these four college students from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minn., are making their way to Covington looking to be put to work. Their goal: sharing the good news about Jesus. They were sponsored by a group called Kingdom Workers and by Abiding Grace Lutheran Church.
