  • Books and Literature Bring People Together
    Books and Literature Bring People Together By Brian Nixon, Special to ASSIST News Service ALBUQUERUQUE, NEW MEXICO (ANS – June 29, 2016) – “Hello, this is Richard Weikart,” came the voice at the other end of the phone. “I noticed that you did a short write-up of my book The Death of Humanity and the Case for Life and I wanted to thank you [1]. Plus, I think we have a lot in common,” Dr. Weikart continued, giving a quick overview of points in our lives that intersect. I was elated that Dr. Weikart called, particularly since he’s one of the notable professors at my Alma Mater, California State University, Stanislaus. We talked for a few minutes, introducing ourselves and discussing our connections and interests. Not long after Dr. Weikart called,…
  • How Britain’s Veteran Musical Troubador of Peace and Social Justice Came to Write a song for Joy Junction
    How Britain’s Veteran Musical Troubador of Peace and Social Justice Came to Write a song for Joy Junction By Jeremy Reynalds, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (ANS-June 27, 2016) Garth Hewitt has a passion for those routinely ignored by the rest of the world. I fell in love with this delightfully ever so English Anglican priest’s music while still in England in the late 1970's. Even back then, it had a soul piercing quality often not present in some Christian music. However, I never met him in person while I still lived in England. It wasn’t until (about) the early 1990's, that while on a short tour of the States Garth agreed to do a concert for our guests at Joy Junction. They loved his music and spirit as much as I did. A few more concerts over the following…
  • British Gentleman Journalist Tackles Newswriting in a ‘Kinder, Gentler Way’
    British Gentleman Journalist Tackles Newswriting in a ‘Kinder, Gentler Way’ By Dan Wooding, Founder of ASSIST News Service (ANS) MINNEAPOLIS, MN (ANS – July 27, 2016) – Right from the very beginning of the ASSIST News Service (www.assistnews.net), Michael Ireland, a fellow Brit, has been at my side, writing more 4,000 articles for us. His output has been nothing short of astounding, and so let me tell you more about him. Now living with his wife, Una, just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Michael was once called the reporter with “the fastest fingers west of the Mississippi” by a publicist for a Christian publishing house. Short, stocky, and possessing a sharp, quick-witted, sense of humor, and an always-handy turn-of-phrase and amazing command of the English language – Michael was the first writer I hired when I…
  • But God, I Want it Now! (Writer's Opinion)
    But God, I Want it Now! (Writer's Opinion) By Carol Round, Special to ASSIST News Service (www.assistnews.net) GROVE, OK (ANS – June 26, 2016) -- “And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady”—Romans 5:4(TLB). Were we more patient before our society became so complicated? What do I mean? For example, before the microwave became a household staple and fast food restaurants graced every corner, weren’t we more content to wait when our meals took an hour or more to prepare? While a watched pot never boils, we lose interest if a frozen meal doesn’t open itself and get nuked in less than five minutes. Can’t we agree that home-cooked meals are definitely…
  • Love and www.zipit.com: The Answers to Every Social Issue
    Love and www.zipit.com: The Answers to Every Social Issue By Jeremy Reynalds, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (ANS-June 21, 2016) -- The answer to every social issue is love and a healthy dose of respect for the other man or woman’s opinion. Sadly, it’s something we don’t see a whole lot these days, with people’s opinions of whatever political or theological persuasion on verbal overdrive and the taking refuge in media that re enforce their own opinions. Where have all these vitriol fueled rants got us? Nowhere, perhaps other than to make God weep as we bask in our self appointed, self “anointed” self righteousness. We’re so busy staking a claim to our corner of the digital public square that the adrenalin pumping through our angrily expanding veins causes us to lose…
