WeckenSonntag 2019

Due to poor planning on my part, I am not in Sulzburg today for one of my favourite events of the year, a festival unique to the community. This saddens me a little, because not only do I appreciate the Christian roots of Weckensonntag, but the free bread was enough to last a few days, […]

Free At Last

I wish him well. Even more, I hope he meets Jesus. A Canadian court Monday determined that Omar Khadr had served his full sentence and was no longer subject to any legal restrictions.
