  • Survey Shows Concern about Homelessness Right Behind Albuquerque’s Spiraling Crime Rate
    Survey Shows Concern about Homelessness Right Behind Albuquerque’s Spiraling Crime Rate News Release from Jeremy Reynalds at Joy Junction Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (ANS - January 23, 2017) -- In a revealing new survey carried out for Joy Junction by NM Research and Polling, asked about issues facing residents in the Albuquerque area, seventy percent of respondents felt homelessness is a problem, while 43 percent feel it is a very serious problem. Hispanics, those with a household income less than $60,000, and residents living in the Valley/Downtown and Mid-Heights were more likely than others to feel homelessness is very serious in Albuquerque. It is telling that residents felt homelessness is a bigger problem than the lack of good paying jobs and the quality of education. Homelessness was second on the list behind crime, which 84 percent of…
  • Thomas Aquinas: Still Relevant Today
    Thomas Aquinas: Still Relevant Today By Brian Nixon, Special to ASSIST News Service ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO (ANS – January 22, 2017) -- As January draws to an end each year my mind usually wanders to a few things— my father’s birthday and death, my parent’s anniversary, and the Feast Day of Thomas Aquinas. I know it sounds odd for a died-in-the-wool Protestant to remember a feast day, but Aquinas was no ordinary man. Many denominations (Anglican, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic) celebrate Thomas Aquinas’s life on January 28th. Prior to 1969, his day of remembrance was March 7th, the day of his death [1]. Considered by many to be one of the finest minds in the history of the church and world, he’s designated as the Angelic Doctor due to the…
  • Some Thoughts on the Rev. Billy Graham by a Broadcaster Raised in a Catholic home
    Some Thoughts on the Rev. Billy Graham by a Broadcaster Raised in a Catholic home By Dennis Daily, Former National Religion Editor for The UPI Radio Network, Special to ASSIST News Service PALM SPRINGS, CA (ANS – January 22, 2017) -- As a kid growing up in a Catholic home in rural southern Indiana, I had an interesting way of looking at the Rev. Billy Graham, an amazing man who is now 98-years-old. I remember in eighth grade telling one of the nuns at my school that Graham was what I thought of as a “Protestant Pope.” Her retort was half scolding, half smiling. I am sure she understood what I meant. I also remember feeling good about sharing my positive feelings about Graham and his growing ministry with the nun. Just the year before, on the playground, she had…
  • Have You Been Surprised by God Lately? (Writer's Opinion)
    Have You Been Surprised by God Lately? (Writer's Opinion) By Carol Round, Special to ASSIST News Service (Writer’s Opinion) GROVE, OK (ANS – January 22, 2017) -- “The whole earth is full of his glory” — Isaiah 6:3 (KJV). Listening as our associate pastor read the familiar words, I marveled anew at God’s love for us. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” God didn’t have to create anything. He didn’t have to create the birds of the air or the flowers we love to pick or the other multitude of creatures and plants for our enjoyment. Just as He created us for His pleasure, He wanted us to enjoy and take care of His creation. Oh how we have failed—all of us. I take comfort, however, in the fact that He…
  • In-N-Out Burger heiress searched for love in the wrong places, finally found the Father’s love
    In-N-Out Burger heiress searched for love in the wrong places, finally found the Father’s love By Mark Ellis, Senior Correspondent for ASSIST News Service SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (ANS - January 20, 2017) -- In a few months, a somewhat reclusive, media-shy billionaire burger heiress will gain full control of the growing In-N-Out Burger empire. After her father’s untimely death from a drug overdose in 1999, and multiple marriage disasters in her own life, she’s emerged with a deepened faith in God’s love. “My dad was really funny,” Lynsi Snyder recounted in an I Am Second video. “He was a little bit eccentric, and loved to make people laugh.” In-N-Out has a loyal fan base because of its Double-Double cheeseburgers, fresh ingredients and Bible verses on its cups and food wrappers. Growing up, she had strong Christian influences, but her budding faith was…
