  • WRPC to host Shoebox Packing Party

    White Rock Presbyterian Church (WRPC) will again host a shoebox packing party. The event is organized by Samaritan’s Purse.
    The packing party is an opportunity for family, friends and neighbors to come together to experience the joy of helping children living in difficult or dire circumstances.
    Last year, more than 180 boxes were packed at the WRPC packing party. “It brings me great joy to picture the smiles on the children’s faces as they realized that someone cares,” Joan Barr of WRPC said.
    The community is invited to join members and friends of WRPC for the Shoebox Packing Party at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 at 310 Rover Blvd. The packing party will offer a night of fun, fellowship, food and door prizes.
    Donations of small gifts, hygiene items and school supplies are welcome. Financial assistance to help with shipping and handling ($7 per box) can be left at the church between 8 a.m.-noon, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, through Nov. 13.
    For more information or to make arrangements to leave donations at another time, call 672-3682.

  • Pope maps out personal, progressive policy

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has made some of the most important policy speeches of his pontificate in recent days, catching up for lost time following months of attention to bureaucratic reform and the turbulent meeting of bishops on family issues that just ended.
    Often speaking in his native Spanish, Francis has focused on issues close to his heart — the plight of the poor and unemployed, the environment and even evolution, seemingly emboldened to speak his mind on topics that must make even some of his closest collaborators squirm.
    He hasn’t changed church doctrine. But he has pushed the envelope on some issues, raised eyebrows with his blunt speaking style on others, and made clear where his progressive social priorities lie.

  • Bible Answers: More queries about Christian rock music

    “What’s the deal with contemporary Christian music? Is it as great as some say, or is it evil and vacuous, as others claim?”—Katy
    We may not dismiss “contemporary Christian music” with a broad brush of self-righteous condemnation any more than we can accept the genre uncritically.
    The question reflects the incessant squabble between lovers of hymns, ancient as well as modern, and proponents of more current styles of music. The conflict tends to be largely generational: old folks almost always decry the “new fangled stuff” and young folks almost always reject the “boring, old school” ways of their fathers.
    Paul instructed the early church to sing a variety of “psalms, hymns and spiritual songs” (Eph. 5:19-20; Co. 3:16). Interestingly, his phrase to some degree reflects the historic progression of Western church music.
    The Protestant church of the 18th to 20th centuries sang “classical” hymns. The evangelical surge of the mid-20th century introduced an increasing focus on “spiritual songs” (called “choruses” or “praise and worship” music.)
