Hearts go out to Maytag workers

To the Editor:

Our community is once again experiencing the turbulence of employee reductions by one of Newton’s major employers. As pastors of a variety of churches we wish to express our support and concern for all involved.

Our hearts go out with compassion:

To those who have lost their positions through lay-offs or attrition;

To those who have been bearers of bad news;

To those who have had to make difficult personnel decisions;

and especially to families whose livelihoods have been upset.

As we find ourselves living, shopping, worshiping and playing together in the community, may we continue to look upon each other as sisters and brothers in the family of God.

This Sunday many of our churches will observe Good Shepherd Sunday. As the 23rd Psalm so eloquently puts it, God is in the business of accompanying us and providing for all of our needs.

Yours in faith,

    A few questions from a blog idiot

    How do you keep the spammers from eating you alive? i\’ve seen blogs with nothing but spam postings.

    How do you keep some left wing extremist from posting racist or defamatory rhetoric? and if you cant stop them, what are you legally liabel when they do?

    can viruses be posted to blogs?
