Politics is a Messy Business
by Gary DeMar
From the publisher: Veritas is not a political organization. However, we are a biblical one--one that believes Scripture applies to all areas, including current events. We hope you find Gary's article helpful as you consider your opportunities and responsibilities as members of two kingdoms.
There are two people running for a political office. You have inside knowledge of what these candidates will do in the future.
The first candidate will expand the military, implement confiscatory taxes, enrich some of his trusted political allies with property stolen from the people.
The second candidate will commit adultery, be an accomplice to murder, be identified as a man of bloodshed, sleep with a young woman, and his son will be his successor and increase the military beyond its constitutional limits and align himself with foreign powers by adopting their pagan religious practices.
With all of the finger pointing and he said/she said of election season, we sometimes forget that we are in the season of giving thanks. The holidays are right around the corner and regardless of the election’s outcome, there is much to be thankful for. Spend some time with your little ones working on these fun Thanksgiving projects and display them at your Thanksgiving table. The centerpieces may serve as a non-political conversation starter, as well.

A Mile in Their Bare Feet: Teen Cherishes Life Lesson Courtesy of Dominican Republic
by Taryn Murphy
On a typical day after school, 9-year-old Noah York enjoyed fishing in the sparkling pond behind his home, watching a movie on his family’s flat screen TV, or lounging about his two-story house. To him, it was everything a young boy could dream of.
The Rafiki Foundation
During the month of November we want to give you the opportunity again to join with us in giving to others. The Rafiki Foundation prays and works for the health, education, and happiness of women and children in Africa. Rafiki develops curriculum, trains teachers, teaches life skills, and provides economic opportunities for thousands of orphans and widows in ten sub-Saharan nations. In the month of November, when you place an order through Veritas Press and mention the “The Rafiki Foundation”, we will donate a percentage of the book order to this foundation. On phone orders, simply tell the service representative that you’d like us to donate toward “The Rafiki Foundation”. For web orders, type “The Rafiki Foundation” in the comments section of your order. And if you’d like to join with us further, you can make a tax deductible gift. Contact our Service Team for more on how to do so.. Help us make classical Christian education available to everyone.
