One evening coming home from Jewell, the eastern sky has a radiant circle of golden light; its source unseen. Once, the shelterbelts were passed, the glow was from the almost full moon, its top was cut off or hidden and as it has in the past, the lumination led a person home. A recent morning found the sky filled with clouds across the top and around the eastern sky, low clouds glowed red from the approaching sun.

Mankato The service at Harmony United Methodist Church Sunday began with announcements presented by Nikki Ost. Included were the following: ben— efit dinner for David Belden at the Burr Oak Community Center 11 am. to l :30 pm. Sunday; administrativecoun- cil 6:30 pm. Monday at Harmony; Rebecca Circle Feb. 11,7 p.m.; Thrift Shop duty 1 pm. to 4:30 pm. Feb. 12 andFeb. 13,9a.m.to 12 noon;Feb. 14, 12:15 p.m., “Bee Our Valentine” din- ner at Harmony. The worship service began with a piano prelude played by Lyle Dauner. Brecken and Keiran Shulda lit the altar candles. The Chancel Choir sang the anthem, “A Wilderness Wandering People,” directed by Pat Grout. Pastor Gerry Sharp asked the children during the children’s message, “Why do we love babies?” He answered, “Because they’re there and they’re easy to love.” Jesus loves each of us because He created us to love. He then prayed, “Thank you, Jesus, for loving us.” The morning scripture was 1 Corinthians 1321-13, on which Pastor Gerry Sharp based his sermdn titled “Just Love Them.” Jesus came into the world to show us that God is love. He asks us to love our neighbor and to love our en- emies. This is our choice. Retaliation only perpetuates the bad. People have been changed because another person loved them. Part of what love is means praying for each other and forgive- ness. God has chosen love, the better way. Love may bring pain. Missionar- ies have been killed by those they were helping. But the killers have been changed by love. We are called to love as Jesus loved, for the sake of Christ.

Tax scammers using state phone number The Kansas Department of Rev~ enue has received reports of a tax scam targeting Kansans. The callers all say that the recipient has a tax debt with the state of Kansas and push the recipient to pay the debt using a debit card or money order and threaten jail. The recipients were also told they failed to file a Form 61 , which does not exist for the state of Kansas. The calls show up on caller ID as a valid department of revenue number, 785-296—0671, which connects to the department’s public information of- ficer. If taxpayers receive a call and are unsure if it is fraudulent or not, they should call the department’s tax cus- tomer service line 785—368—8222. “The dynamo of our economic system rs self-interest which may range from mere petty greed to admirable types of self-expression.” Felix Frankfurter Day e now through Saturday, February 13th 40-50% off family Energy Zone® can; SALE 1039 each week to save! days lrom the start of the sale.
