  • Ask Fr. John: A lesson on why people choose to fast

    Why do we fast? — G.

    Part one
    Your question is timely since we are currently in the Nativity Fast.
    Two overly simplified answers are: because the Lord Himself Who is God fasted and because Christ said “when you fast ...” Mt. 6:16.
    We know that fasting was practiced in the ancient church.
    The Apostles prescribed the weekly fasts on Wednesday and Friday in the ancient Apostolic text, “The Didache.” See the church website for Ancient Christian texts.
    However, this is not the main reason for fasting.
    There are several reasons why we fast. One is found where Paul says that Christ God emptied himself when he became incarnate. Ph 2:7.

  • Debate pits tees against trails

    Parks and Recreation Board meetings are usually quiet affairs.

    Not so Thursday night, when about 150 people showed up to debate proposed improvements to the golf course developed by Andy Staples with the Golf Resource Group, a noted golf course consulting firm specializing in sustainable golf courses.

    The discussion lasted nearly two and half hours.

    At issue were two options that would impact hiking trails along the course. Plan A, with an estimated cost of $6,235,000 and a reduced sustainability plan would address safety issues for the driving range but not the rest of the course. It would impact trails along the perimeter but not as much as Plan B.
