       We just completed the “School of Prophetic Trainers” held at the Missions Church in Vacaville California. While waiting for the Sunday service to begin this morning, I began to mediate upon Jesus when these thoughts came to my heart. 

      It seems God is more interested in how much of Christ divine nature and the light of His glory that we abide in and His love than the influence we have, our scope of ministry, the size of our congregation or whom we know and our good works.

    Most pet owners will agree that pets are like family.  Keeping our furry family members safe is a number one priority, but dogs and cats often have a tendency to wander away and get lost. Making sure your pet is microchipped is one of the best ways to ensure they return home.  Most veterinary clinics keep microchips on hand so your pet can be implanted at your convenience. Here at the Camden Hospital for Animals, we carry HomeAgain microchips.

    In February and March, many letters were written and many dozens of Rockland residents lined at town council meetings to give testimony to support banning use of plastic shopping bags to protect the environment.  The city councilors patiently listened for hours to allow everyone to speak and ultimately approved a ban on plastic bag use.  This was a good cause.
