  1. I cannot thank you enough for allowing us to be on the program! It was a true blessing and we had a wonderful time!

    I wanted to post the link for people to find the CD and see more information on it, including song samples! (Also, if you follow the site back to my main page, you will see the event schedule that was mentioned on the segment.)

    Thanks again!

  2. I thought the decision of the Serrano’s to close their restaurants on Sundays was very poorly explained. Mr. Dixon evidently agreed with them, but he did not explain why either.

    Yes, Sunday is the Lord’s day. If the Serrano family members want to take the day off, that is their right. If they want to offer Sunday off to their employees, fine. But in this economy, there are surely countless potential workers who would welcome the extra day’s wage. And what of the customers who can only gather for a family meal on Sundays? Even the Bishop apparently didn’t tell them that it was good or right for them to shut down on Sundays.

    So, what good do the Serrano’s think they are accomplishing? It’s just not clear.
