The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem’s Workshop Finds a New Home

Most everyone is familiar with the old saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  There’s no doubt that lemons have been abundant this year, and the performing arts organizations in our city, including The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem, have had more than their share. So, what to do?  Faced with cancelled shows, classes, and […]

Truth vs. Politcians

When I was a child, my mom washed my mouth out with Dial soap. Let me tell you, I don’t recommend it. At least on the receiving end. It wasn’t the brand either. I don’t think Dove would have been an improvement. It wasn’t for cursing. The typical old school punishment at the time. This time […]

My Grace-Full Life: A Change of Direction

I read a new Bible every year, and my new year starts over in August.  Which is weird, I know.  My inner-OCD really wants my annual start-over to fall on January 1.  However, after years of unsuccessful New Year’s resolutions to read the Bible in a year, I realized that there’s no time like the […]

It’s Great To Be Back In School

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in at least one positive thing: a much greater appreciation for the importance of in-person education. At St. John’s Lutheran School on Silas Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem, its small class sizes, strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols, and a safe-nurturing Christian Environment has recaptured the value of face-to-face learning for many […]
