As a born-again, retired minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, now as a layman, I am ashamed as to the reasons the pastors of the churches of Cottonwood held that they could not, as a group, or even individually, cooperate with the National March and Day of Prayer for Our Country.

Early this morning I went to gas up my car. I tossed the keys in the car, fueled up, finished that, and then discovered that I had apparently tossed the keys hard enough to lock the entire car. What to do?
