Tom’s Topics

 

By Tom Hawkins

The schools of the Groesbeck Independent School District opened for the 2016 -- 2017 school year on Monday of this week.

In talking to Dr. Harold Ram, superintendent of the G.I.S.D. last week, he stated that the school district’s enrollment at the opening of the school year would probably be in the low 1,800s. He pointed out that enrollment at the end of last school year was in the 1,880 range.

Dr. Ramm stated, “By the end of September, I expect our enrollment to be about 1,925.”

The school district has some 250 employees.

The public is reminded that the Limestone County Historical Museum is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Museum is located on West Navasota St. in downtown Groesbeck.

The Museum is in process of reorganizing its Board of Directors as well as other factors in the operation of the Museum. It is hoped that the Museum can be eventually kept open more often.

No Wiggle Room in “Must”

 

By Clifton Fox, Church of Christ

 

When I was a child, my mom often gave me instructions that included the word “must.” For example: You “must” eat your vegetables before you can have dessert. Or she would say, You “must” do your chores before you can go outside to play.  I knew precisely what she meant by the word “must.” There was no wiggle room. I had to do exactly what she said, the way she said to do it…or else.

Jesus himself addressed the correct way true worshippers “must” worship God (Jn 4:23-24). He said “True worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him Must worship in spirit and truth.”

Catholic Corner: The Resurrection of Our Bodies

By St.Mary's Catholic Church

Most cultures and religions have despaired of saving the bodies and concentrate on the durability of the souls. But the Catholic Church is different. We definitely believe in the immorality of the soul. But we also affirm the resurrection of the body. Catholicism is interested in the sanctity of the deceased body. But the real bodily focus of our faith is on the transformation of our old dead bodies into new bodies resurrected in Christ on the Last Day.
