On this Day in History: September 30, 1966

Courtesy of my sister who was maybe a freshman or sophomore at Montebello High School in 1966:

I’m in the process of re-doing one of my old high school scrapbooks. I read this article from the Derrick Diary (Montebello High School’s newspaper) on the back of a photo I had saved from September 30, 1966.

On Your March

As many critics state, California has launched the nation’s toughest political battle, namely the Reagan vs. Brown gubernatorial race. As the contest continues, getting closer to the finish line as November nears, things will get hotter.

Edmund G. “Pat” Brown is running for his third term in office against former actor Ronald Reagan. Though Reagan has never before run for a public office he shows surprising ability to win the people’s confidence.

Election campaigns are but two weeks in official launching, yet both sides hit strong at each other, obiviously conscious that it will be the most nationally watched and criticized race ever. Wit and wisdom are matched, mangled and misinterpreted as the campaign warms.

What will be the outcome of the seemingly endless mass of hate-filled snarls of competition? No one knows …yet. But soon enough sunny California will know who is to be named California’s governor. It will be a long struggle and many feet will be stepped upon, let’s hope no one is left with scars.

A little bit of history for y’all!

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.

What is the Church?

I miss going to church on Sunday. Our church has decided to not meet during COVID-19. We are taking what we consider to be the safe, love your neighbor approach. Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
