It is important that we introduce our children to Jesus, and that we, as adults, also approach him with childlike faith, acceptance, and trust. --Virginia H. Loewen An encore presentation of the immensely popular 1978 book, The Brown Bag, Planting Seeds of Faith provides entertaining, 10-minute lessons fur use in worship services with four to eight year-olds. Each sermon message focuses on a particular Scripture passage and includes a take away--an object or suggestion of a way to apply and share one's faith away from church--learning by doing. Stretching Further, an optional feature, can he used to foster additional discussion on abstract concepts. Some of the 26 sermon topics include: Did Jesus Have a Christmas Tree! (Hosea 14:8) ¥ We can count on God to be our friend and helper through all seasons of the year. A Valentine from God (Psalm 103:11-12) ¥ The Bible is a love letter from God to us. Pretzels and Prayers (Jeremiah 29:12) ¥ God always hears us--whenever, wherever, and however we pray. Jesus Uses Signs (John 2:11) ¥ Jesus' miracles were signs that he is the Son of God Going Fishing (Matthew 4: 19; Mark 1: 17) ¥ When we follow Jesus, we can attract others to him, too. Planting Seeds of Faith is an essential nondenominational resource that will assist pastors and laity with the important ministry of preaching to children. Virginia H. Loewen has spent 25 years as an elementary teacher and reading specialist. She has served as a Sunday school and Bible school teacher, and as a lay leader for St. John's United Methodist Church in State College, Pennsylvania. Loewen is the author of The Best Book for Terry Lee and Special Things.

In American churches, the Song Of Solomon is traditionally thought of as an allegory of the love between Jesus, and the church. In Hebrew tradition, it is an allegory about the love of God for the Hebrew people, or "Jehovahas Wife" While both interpretations can be considered accurate, there is a third and mostly overlooked interpretation, and that is that it is a poetic representation of the earthly life, ministry, crucifixion, death burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, & His continued ministry to the church, through the Holy Spirit from Heaven. This commentary is an attempt to outline this third interpretation in clear, concise language for the edification of the church and the body of Jesus Christ.

I have given this book of poems the title Swan Songs since, as it implies, swan song means the last appearance of someone or some thing. I don't plan to publish another book of poetry and for that reason this title. A well-known poet once said something to the effect, "If a poet writes one memorial poem in his lifetime, he should be happy," and since this is my third book, I feel I have little more to offer. In this book, you will find many subjects, most of which I have encountered and about which I wrote a poem. Some are humorous, but the majority are thoughtful and serious. I hope you will take the time to read the poems whose titles draw your interest.

Aircrews had dealt with threats --fighters and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) --since the beginnings of the use of aircraft in combat, but the introduction of the Soviet-built SA-2 surface- to-air missile (SAM) in the Vietnam War ushered a new and deadly threat into air war over Vietnam. Although it was not an unexpected threat, having earlier shot down two American U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the US Air Force's tactical forces were largely unprepared. A counter had to be found, and that counter was the Wild Weasel, a specially configured F-100 F aircraft with electronics for detecting and then homing on radar emissions from SAM sites. The Weasel proved to be an effective weapon for suppressing enemy radar and SAM threats. Many changes occurred in the Weasel program. The F-100F airframe was too slow to keep up with the primary attack aircraft of the day, the F-105, so the Weasel electronics were added to an F-105 aircraft designated the EF-105 and later redesignated the F-105G. That airframe had too little life left in it and was itself replaced by the F-4C. Following the Vietnam War, the F-4C was replaced by the current Wild Weasel platform, the F-4G, a modified F-4F platform incorporating more capable electronic gear for employment against the mobile Soviet threats. Along with changes in aircraft came changes in weapons and tactics. The first Weasels employed rockets to mark the target for following attack aircraft who would destroy the SAM sites with bombs or cluster munitions. These tactics required the aircraft to overfly the heavily defended sites, increasing the aircraft's vulnerability to the SAMs and to AAA. The introduction of Shrike anti-radiation missile (ARM) negated the requirement to overfly the site, but its short range required further improvement. The improvement came in the Standard ARM, a missile that was followed by development of the High-Speed Anti- Radiation Missile, or HARM, the weapon of choice for today's Weasel.
