Craig briefs for Nov. 6
November 6, 2008
First Congregational holds movie night
First Congregational United Church of Christ, 630 Green St., will host three free movie nights Nov. 9, 16 and 23. Shown in three parts will be the documentary, “Three Faiths, One God.” Showtime is at 7 p.m. each Sunday. After watching each part, there will be discussion.
The documentary, “Three Faiths, One God: Judaism, Christianity, Islam” compares similarities and differences in religious beliefs and practices that Islam has with Christianity and Judaism. It also examines how people of goodwill in the Abrahamic faith communities are coming to terms with historical conflicts that impact their lives today, the crisis of the fundamentalist approach to religious pluralism, and tearing down barriers to understanding and respect.
Post Office asks for mailboxes free of snow
With the arrival of snow, ice and difficult weather conditions, the Craig Post Office is asking postal customers to always clear a safe, accessible path to mailboxes.
Post Office requests include:
Recommended Stories For You
• Make sure the mailbox is visible and free of snow and ice.
• Make sure mailboxes are safely accessible for letter carriers.
• Clear the mailbox area of snow, sleet, slush, ice and debris.
If mailboxes are blocked off and conditions are too difficult, letter carriers must consider safety and accessibility first and are instructed not to deliver to mailboxes and locations considered too difficult or unsafe to access.
