More > Foundation’s James Proctor Fund for Aged Men and Women, a fund of The Indianapolis Foundation, in Marion County. Our purpose in this project was simple… to remember. We gathered as many memories as we could from the Elders. We had many seniors who could not write, so we listened and wrote for them. We asked them at first to just remember anything – people, places, events, or times. After listing those snapshot memories, we then asked the seniors to take one memory talk about the entire scene and to tell it like they remember it happening and feeling. The book begins with examples of lines from their first exercise of completing the phrase, “I Remember…” As you read on, you will see those lines then developed into complete memoirs.< Less

However, their congregation habits and excreta can annoy people, thus they are considered nuisance pests. This book covers everything you need to know about getting rid of box elder bugs.< Less

A Collection of Articles written by Joseph L. Purington which were submitted to, and published by, the Southern Baptist Messenger and Signs of the Times periodicals. While reading these articles,... More > one may learn much history, and will be edified in the most holy faith of God's elect. An unintended side benefit in reading these will be a growing sense of the turbulent religious upheaval of his day, as equal to the extreme religious frenzy now possessing modern so-called churches. The screams, shaking, jumping, racket-making, arm-slinging, madness once noted in Scripture of the followers of Baal at Mt.

One may compare the quiet, humble, and reverent worship of Zion with that of contemporary American noisy and carnal religion. Stanley C. Phillips< Less
