Unions Or Unity?by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Here is a company of Bible-believing Christians joined together in, let us say, an evangelistic endeavor. All are trusting in the shed blood of Christ forsalvation, though some are Baptists, some Presbyterians, some Episcopalians and some represent other denominations.Are all these believers one? Yes, in Christ, for “there is one body” (Eph. 4:4).What united them? The “one baptism” (Eph. 4:5) by which the Holy Spirit unites all believers to Christ and to each other: “For by one Spirit are weall baptized into one body whether we be Jews or Gentiles…” (I Cor. 12:13).Yet these same believers, all trusting in the finished work of Christ for salvation, remain sadly divided as far as fellowship in the work of the Lord isconcerned. They may have blessed fellowship in their evangelistic endeavor, but at its conclusion they go back to their mutually exclusive church organ-izations.The reason? Basically it is that they have confused “the gospel of the kingdom,” proclaimed by Christ on earth and His twelve apostles, with “thegospel of the grace of God,” proclaimed by the ascended, glorified Lord through the Apostle Paul (Acts 20:24; Eph. 3:1-3).Striving over baptismal modes and meanings, most of them still require their particular forms of baptism for entrance into their churches, whileexplaining at the same time that the ceremony has no saving value and that it is not required by God for entrance into the true Church.Can’t we stop being Presbyterians, Baptists and Methodists and just be Christians? Why should the Church of Christ remain divided and weak, whenGod says:“WE BEING MANYARE ONE BODYIN CHRIST, AND EVERYONE MEMBERS ONE OF ANOTHER” (Rom. 12:5).

Gleanings fromthe Prairie
There was a good crowd onhand to hear the presentation of a portion of the great oratorio byGeorge F. Handel, “Messiah”.The director, pianist and singersall did a commendable job as theyshared this arrangement of thismagnificent piece of music.I thought it would be good toshare something about the manand the music, as I have beenhumming different refrains fromit since having this opportunityto listen to it once again. According to the EncyclopediaBritannica, George F. Handel(1685-1759), was a German-Eng-lish composer, who, along withhis contemporary Johann Sebast-ian Bach, is recognized as one of the two greatest composers of thelate baroque age.Handel was apublic figure for most of his lifeand was not forgotten on hisdeath.While he made important con-tributions in nearly every field of music, Handel was primarily acomposer for the theater, first inItalian opera, later in Englishoratorio.His most famous orato-rio, Messiah, has become anobject of reverence in manyChristian, especially Protestant,communities.Beethovenacclaimed him as “the master of us all.”Handel composed Messiah in1741 in 24 days, from August 22to September 14.It was first per-formed at a concert given forcharitable purposes at Dublin,Ireland, on April 13, 1742, Han-del conducting the performancein person.One author has this to sayabout Handel’s Messiah:“Itcould only have come forth in asetting where the Bible stood atthe center.Even the order of theselections follows with extremeaccuracy the Bible’s teachingabout the Christ as the Messiah.For example, Handel did not putthe ‘Hallelujah Chorus’at theend, but in its proper place in theflow of the past and future histo-ry of Christ.Many modern per-formances often place it at theend as a musical climax, butHandel followed the Bible’steaching exactly and placed it atthat future historic momentwhen the Bible says Christ willcome back to rule upon the earth--- at that point where the Bibleprophetically (in the Book of Rev-elation) puts the cry of ‘King of kings and Lord of lords!’” Yes, Handel’s Messiah is amagnificent oratorio.But theLORD JESUS CHRIST is themagnificent LORD of WhomHandel wrote.Handel took hismessage for Messiah directlyfrom Scripture.“Behold theLamb of God.” “All we like sheephave gone astray.”“Lift up yourheads, O ye gates.”“Hallelujah!for the Lord God omnipotentreigneth.”“Worthy is the Lambthat was slain.”“Amen.”If you have never listened tothe entire Messiah by Handel, Iwould encourage you to do so(with an open Bible possible).Rewarding!

She has done some researchand has an idea of what she needs. Anker agreed with her request.Fuoss then addressed the com-missioners. She had been asked toattend the meeting to discuss theNational Flood Insurance Pro-gram. She said that the countywould take on a lot of administra-tion and record keeping duties if they participated in the program.The commissioners asked her per-sonal and professional opinion onthe matter, and she said that shewould recommend not participat-ing.Hurst was next to speak to thecommissioners. She said thatRoyer had mentioned hiringanother county employee. Ankersaid that he was against hiringanother full time employee. Hesaid that they would keep Hurst inmind if an opening should comeup. Hurst said she wouldn’t mindworking part time.Barnes, representing the City of Murdo, spoke with the commis-sioners about the law enforcementissue. She told them about thecity’s plans to write a letter toelected officials requesting addi-tional highway patrolmen. Sheasked if the city and county couldget together at some point to writesomething up. Anker said hethought it would be a good idea.Sheriff Weber brought moreinformation about the purchase of a new law enforcement vehicle. Healso said he had spoken with TerryDeuter from Kadoka about work-ing one to two days per month inMurdo on an as needed basis. Hesuggested paying Deuter $15 perhour. Weber said he would makesure the appropriate paperworkwas taken care of in the process. Anker then made a motion topurchase a new law enforcementvehicle.Paul Thomas was next on theagenda with new business involv-ing the approval of four propertyplats, as Thomas has recently soldland. The plats were approved,then the meeting went into execu-tive session.Royer’s road updates were onthe agenda following the executivesession. Anker asked Royer if hehad any leads on part-time helpfor the summer. Royer told thecommissioners that he thinks thecounty needs another full timeemployee. He said that the countyhas the equipment to keep anotherfull time employee busy. He alsosaid that there was no way thecounty could hire somebody oncontract cheaper than they couldhire another full time employee. Anker asked about the possibil-ity of hiring a college student, butRoyer said that might be difficultas anyone they hire would need tohave a CDL. Anker commentedthat he thinks the current countyemployees are under paid. Royersaid he would be out of commissionfor most of the summer, as he iscurrently nursing a broken ankle,and will have work done on hisback and shoulder as soon as he ishealed.
Stop tilling for abetter garden soil
by Donna AdrianSDSU Master Gardener You can save work and havebetter garden soil if you stop till-ing. It is difficult to get rid of theold idea of tilling deep and fre-quent, such hard work only bringsup more weed seeds and destroysthe microorganisms in the soilthat break down the roots whichmakes rich garden soil. Tilling alsocreates a hardpan; let the earthworms do the fertilizing, instead of chopping them up with the tiller orhoe.So now you are asking what todo with the weeds? The answer isto just start adding mulch andcover them up. Mulch can come inmany different forms such as card-board, shredded paper, newspaper(without color print) just soakthem with water and add grassclippings, wood chips, straw, barkor hay on top, I have even carpet-ed some of my walkways. We herein rural South Dakota have anadvantage, because there isalways well rotten manure avail-able, or an old stack yard nearbyto gather hay mulch left over fromlast winter’s haystacks, lots of grass clippings, dried leaves,kitchen scraps and all the otherthings that can be added that wereonce a living plant, and it doesn’tcost a bit. If weeds come throughyou don’t have the mulch thickenough, add more--- up to 8-10inches, and keep a supply at theedge of the yard, to keep addingmore. This takes a little moreeffort in the spring, but eliminatesa lot of work the rest of the sum-mer, and your plants will love it,especially when it is 110 degreesand thirty mile hour south wind.With the prediction of anotherdrought year, your garden plantscan be much happier with someprotections for their roots, plus theworms and microorganisms arebusy at work under the mulchmaking you more and better soil,otherwise if it is dry and parchedon top of the soil the worms andtheir companions are driven deep-er into the ground. Another plus isthe worms make holes in the soilso water can permeate into the soilinstead of running off. Keepadding your much year aroundand eventually build your soil in toa rich loam your plants will pro-duce and thrive in. If you havequestions on how to manage yourgarden, you can emailadrians@gwtc.net.
