Graham a proven leader

Dear Editor:

South Carolina’s Senior Senator Lindsay Graham is a leader.

If there is an important issue being addressed in Washington, you can count on Lindsey Graham to be an active legislator in the process. Instead of sitting on the sidelines, Lindsey is always working to find common ground to tackle the tough issues. He understands the big picture, and I applaud his efforts to address the issues facing our nation.

The United States is facing threats all around the world, and Lindsey is committed to a strong national defense to protect the U.S. Sen. Graham is a proven conservative. He is a staunch advocate of the Second Amendment. He is pro-life. He supports marriage being between a man and a woman.

Lindsey Graham is a vital asset to South Carolina and our country. He has always looked out for our best interest, and we need him in Washington. He has always been a vocal advocate for the Port of Charleston. He understands the need to dredge the channels, to ensure that we remain competitive when the larger container ships are able to pass through the Panama Canal.

We need Lindsey Graham to continue representing South Carolina. I will be supporting Lindsey Graham in his re-election for U.S. Senate, and I urge voters of South Carolina to join me. Lindsey Graham has proven his worth and deserves to continue representing the great state of South Carolina and America in the U.S. Senate.

Episcopal Church USA

alive and well

Dear Editor:

What happened to the Episcopal Church in the Goose Creek and Moncks Corner area of Berkeley County? All kinds of stories, rumors, and opinions circulate – some true and some not, depending on who you ask.

With the disappearance of St. Mary’s on Red Bank Road the familiar shield and sign “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You” is nowhere in sight. But the Episcopal Church USA in South Carolina is not gone. It is alive and well!

There are Episcopalians here who are looking for a place to worship Our area is scheduled to explode with new homes being built and people moving in from all over and many will be looking for an Episcopal Church.

There will be an organizational meeting at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 at the Goose Creek Library on Old Moncks Corner Road.

All those who are interested in restoring an Episcopal worshiping community in this area, in union with The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, are welcome to attend. This is an exciting and challenging time, come and be a part of this new adventure!
