It's Not by Works

A few weeks ago, at N.O.W. (our Sunday School Class), we found a startling discovery; something that PROVES good deeds don’t get you into heaven: When Jesus was hanging on the cross, he was flanked on either side by two men who deserved their deaths. They were thieves, liars, cheats, and who knows what else.

One of them said to Jesus that He should get them all down and save them if He really was the Son of God. The man was mocking Jesus, even in the face of certain death, he mocked Him-who-came-to-save.

Mountain Lion Kittens for Sale!

It is funny how a little rumor will turn into an elaborate tale - quite literally - over night!
A few weeks ago, the newspaper staff had heard about a mountain lion sighting in our county and set out to find the roots of the rumor.
Some of the rumors that were going around town by Monday would read something like the following article if we didn’t check into all of our news sources and just wrote from hearsay!

(We did print this article, but just for fun - italics are my added notes)
