Just Sayin’ – Poverty and the Gospel
by Alex Hentschel
Hello. Nice to meet you.
I am a middle-class, white American woman. Growing up, I always had something to eat, presents on Christmas morning, sweaters for the winter, and now my parents have a house in the suburbs. I’m attending college, a monstrous expense, without worrying (too much) about how it will affect my future.
I have an American passport which allows me into most of the world’s countries if I can just afford the plane ticket to go. I am a native English ...

Head coach Kari Hoffman breathed a sigh of relief following Cedarville’s 80-64 victory over Alderson Broaddus on Thursday.

Movie Review: ‘Mary Poppins Returns’
by Hunter Johnson
Julie Andrews, the original Mary Poppins, has returned to theaters. She’s in Aquaman.
But I’m not reviewing “Aquaman,” instead I’m taking a look at “Mary Poppins Returns,” with Emily Blunt as the titular character.
From Rob Marshall, director of musicals such as “Chicago” and “Into the Woods,” “Mary Poppins Returns” revives the character that has been in the hearts of families across the world since 1964.
