Bryce Avenue Presbyterian Church Presents Conference On Martin Luther And The Reformation Sept. 29–30

Bryce Avenue Presbyterian Church News:

On Oct. 31, 1517, theology professor Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The first thesis stated, “When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, ‘Repent’ (Matthew 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.” Luther said such repentance does not refer to the Roman Catholic sacrament of penance, but to inner repentance that produces outward obedience. He then focused his attack on the Catholic practice of selling indulgences for the remission of sins.

Bernstein: Response To Mr. Skolnik

Los Alamos School Board Member

Editor’s note: Christine Bernstein is running for re-election in District 3.

“…Lauren’s main opponent in this race, Christine Bernstein, has not served the community well as a member of the School Board. The main role of the School Board is to hire a superintendent. Yet, the School Board of which Ms. Bernstein is a part failed at this task, in a manner that cost us educationally and financially. In addition, it appears that Ms. Bernstein participated in the near silence of the School Board on matters related to COVID and chronic absenteeism, Read More
