the spirit of love
United Methodist Church a ministry of happiness and joy
10, 2000] Do
you remember the "Newlywed Game" on television? Newly married couples
were separated, asked the same questions and then were asked on camera to
predict how their spouse answered. The humor of the show resulted from the
seemingly wild differences in their answers. It also demonstrated that they
didn't know each other as well as they thought. How would church members and
ministers do in such a blind quiz? Would they know each other and their
congregation or would their assessments be wildly different?
Relating to Youth, or P.A.R.T.Y., brought seventh graders from all over Logan
County to the campus of Lincoln Christian College on Friday, March 10.
They attended 10 workshops presented by high school students from
Mount Pulaski, Hartsburg-Emden and Lincoln Community High School.
These students used skits and drama to show the seventh graders what
to expect in high school, exploring such issues as dating and friendship, laws
that impact young people, violence in schools and what it’s like driving after
you’ve been drinking.

McGraw has invested some 31 years in the state’s oldest, most continuous
frosh-soph basketball tournament. Over the years it has included some unique
features including a queen contest. Some of the best future Class A stars have
formerly played in this tournament. I caught up with Dave at his home to get his
take on this tradition rich extravaganza.
