Don't belittle my friend and brother in the Lord in a public forum

To The Daily Sun,

In response to Denise Burke's letter of Feb. 25 regarding the Holy Grail of the Lakes, the Kennedys may hold the deed ma'am, but the building belongs to God. Everything does. If you're saying because the Kennedys hold the deed it's none of God's business you are wrong. If you are saying God does not give direction to men you are wrong.

I started this engagement by declaring that I did not want to take up the burden of the Holy Grail. God did not speak to me about it. You without cause, other than you frequent the Holy Grail, belittled my friend and brother in the Lord in a public forum. He did no evil to you. He did no evil to the owners of the Holy Grail.

If God is of the same heart as he in this, he did him a favor by being faithful to deliver the message.

Are you so arrogant in your heart, that you could not come to imagine that God could put a burden on someone like Bishop Blake's heart for the misuse of the cross the symbol of his son, who gave his life for men's sins?

Library is not just a reference service, it's a place for the vulnerable

To The Daily Sun,

During the past year in Meredith we have heard frequent discussions on the topic of our library — to stay at our present location or move. Hopefully, either outcome will improve the present facility. Obviously, more parking is needed plus easier access for the elderly or handicapped.

The one topic that I have heard discussed the most is: Do we really need to improve our library in this day of digital books? To answer this question I wish to quote Angela Clarke, a renowned author, columnist, and playwright:

"A Library is not just a reference service. It is a place for the vulnerable. From the elderly gentleman whose only remaining human interaction is with library staff, to the isolated young mother who relishes the support and friendship that grows from a baby rhyme-time session. To a slow-moving 30-something woman collecting her CDs. Libraries are a haven in a world where community services are being ground down to nothing. Libraries are vital, their worth cannot be measure in books alone."

And, if I may add to her quote, nor can we measure a library's worth in dollars alone. When considering whether to expand the library I hope you will consider the many benefits our library offers to all who simply take advantage of its many benefits to the community.
