Unitarian church starts in Cape Girardeau (02/26/05)
For years Allen Gathman and Pat Reagan Briggs have been talking about a need for the spiritual in their lives.

Unbridling our spiritual overseers (02/26/05)
I understood bridles as a youngster because I grew up outside town and my family owned horses. I knew that putting a bit in a horse's mouth allowed me to control him even though he was much bigger than I.
