  • “If there was one thing God would say to me today, what would it be?” — Joy

    Often we want God to speak to us directly, offering guidance, solving problems and providing answers to the “big” questions that confront us. Actually, God does address us individually — our problem is we do not often listen very well.
    Generally, God speaks through the inspired record of His revelation of Himself to humanity — a book we call the Bible. Through a wide variety of literary styles and genre, God covers a lot of issues.
    Truth and reality, law and grace, freedom and responsibility, justice and mercy, judgment and forgiveness and holiness and purity are all encompassed within his message to us.  

  • Thursday marks 50 years since Mick Jagger played his first gig with a band called the Rolling Stones, and the group is marking its half-century with a book and an exhibition of photographs of the band at Somerset House in London.

  • According to Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series promoter Russ Gordon, one of his favorite concerts in the last 25 years was the Austin country-rock-soul band, the Gourds, who performed at the Pajarito Ski Area four years ago.
    Their lead singer/front man is Kev “Shinyribs” Russell. Those that have never seen the Gourds or don’t remember the show might want to catch this Friday’s Shinyribs concert at Ashley Pond.
    “The Gourds have two songwriters and singers, plus they’re a democratic band where they all argue over who controls the performances and CD production,” Gordon said.

  • The Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, run by the police department, receives Los Alamos animals through owner surrender, abandonment and by picking up roaming animals in this county.  
    The currently low rate of euthanasia has been achieved through the efforts of employees and volunteers to have animals adopted and fostered. The volunteer program would like to expand the network of foster homes for Los Alamos animals in order to continue this success.
    A major cause of illness in shelters is overcrowding. When the shelter becomes overcrowded, short-term foster homes can save health and lives by temporarily absorbing the overflow. When staff advises that adoptions have reduced the population, these fosters may return to the shelter.
