WASHINGTON - Let the count begin.
More than 120 million U.S. census forms begin arriving Monday in mailboxes around the country, in the government's once-a-decade population count that will be used to divvy up congressional seats and more than $400 billion in federal aid. Fast-growing states in the South and the West could stand to lose the most because of lower-than-average mail participation rates in 2000 and higher shares of Hispanics and young adults, who are among the least likely to mail in their forms.

I believe spring is finally here; the temperature is rising and the birds are singing. This is my favorite time of the year mainly because there is this feeling of coming alive. Another reason I like it is because of Easter; where we celebrate a Savior coming alive after He was killed and buried for three days. The significance of this is that He now sits at God the Father's side offering forgiveness and a new life for all who will put their lives in His hands. Jesus Christ died so that those who are depressed, lonely, hurting and ...

Well, tonight is not one of my favorite times of the year. No, tonight we "spring forward." That is, we move our clocks ahead one hour so that we can enjoy daylight savings time for the next few months. I have to admit that in enjoy the sun being out later as we move through the summer. But oh how I hate to lose that hour of sleep tonight. And as a pastor I know that it will have an impact on church attendance. No matter how many reminders we get, someone will forget to move their clocks. Every year ...
