People have power to save democracy

Editor, There is an empowering answer to what our nation is going through right now. It involves each of us. Our present political divide has caused our democracy to be in peril.

Respond to challenges with care

Editor, One year ago, I submitted a letter to the editor in which the first paragraph was this: “Our nation is presently going through a very present political crisis. This crisis is a clear example of the outworking of our human frailties. These frailties involve anger, attack, and blaming others f...

Editor, I was thrilled to read the article on the 2023 Parliament of World Religions in your Sept. 6 issue.
