NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
The Sabbath, the day of rest, Sunday, what has happened?
In the past, maybe only drugstores were opened on a Sunday. Families spent non-rush quality time together, went to church, prayed together, actually dined together, talked to each other and even listened to one another.
Now, many have no time on Sunday, working and/or running children to hockey games, cheerleading competition, following traveling teams outside of Lawrence County with grandparents, parents in attendance, and it goes on and on.
We are all exhausted, and Monday is back to work for many. And all is repeated week after week, run, run, run. And before one knows it, life’s journey is at an end of the road.
Hopefully, time is made for religion teachings, so the children of today have a lifetime understanding of faith and not be left alone in facing life’s toughest challenges and most difficult times in the living experiences.
The necessary concepts of good versus evil need to be ingrained in our youth as well as with our adults. The words or messages from the Bible, for example, being written over a 1,000-plus years ago, cannot be meaningless. Those words and messages are living words and have brought so much to the lives of those who experience and comprehend their meanings.
In fact, such is the very basis of us being civilized, so important. Parents must make the effort so their young receive the messages of goodness by participating in the various faiths of their choosing that are available worldwide.
Yet for many who struggle to put food on the table and have not the bare essentials, these thoughts may be difficult to grasp. Or maybe they understand such more than those who have.
