Young Republicans embrace climate care

Michael J. Oard/Bozeman, Mont.

March 12: I embrace climate care but strongly urge detailed analysis of the data because there is much misinformation out there. I doubt Andrew Eisenman did this since he thinks global warming trumps all other important issues.

Tom Burley/Alto, Mich.

It is good that young people like Andrew Eisenman take an interest in important issues such as climate change. But he has chosen to abandon the political party that more closely reflects Christian values over this controversial issue. That is the problem with some young idealists.

Rick Day/Whitney Point, N.Y.

Your article did not explain why these people are changing their minds regarding climate change. No data is presented showing that the fears commonly heard (and repeated in this article) are really happening.

Combating disease and brain drain

Kristofer Sandlund/Zanesville, Ohio

March 12: There were times when African hospitals had the facilities, funding, and nursing staff to serve their communities but were going to close down because of a lack of a single licensed surgeon. The Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons has helped keep those facilities open.

Kids’ dollars

Jim Histand/Surprise, Ariz.

March 12: Too many children have no financial experience before they are thrust into adulthood. By making mistakes before credit (our “good” word for debt) blindsides them, they can learn Biblical virtues of industry, thrift, saving, conservation, and prioritization while the stakes are low.

Pat Jacobs/Redmond, Wash.

I am so glad that a lot of people are realizing that a large part of our economic problems is due to a lack of individual fiscal responsibility. How important it is for all parents to see that their children learn basic accounting.

Reading to your kids is time well spent

Evelyn Carver/Middleboro, Mass.

March 12: When I taught preschool, I could always tell which children had parents who read to them. They had a better vocabulary and were more imaginative and patient.

Larry Borges/Stockton, Calif.

Mary Jackson’s interview with Meghan Cox Gurdon brought to mind the best years of my life when my children were growing up. I would come home from work, and after dinner, I would get out a book and read to the family. My wife claims I read a library to them.

Opulent crime

Helen Ferguson/Ridgeland, Miss.

March 12: Poor Agatha must be turning in her grave, but I’m sure she would wholeheartedly agree with Collin Garbarino. His last sentence sums it up: “The real crime in this film is Branagh’s abandonment of the characteristics that made Christie’s Hercule Poirot so great.”

Murderville has more comedy than mystery

Joe McCormick/Plymouth, Ind.

March 12: I find it hard to comprehend why a Christian would be “dying for a quick hit of humor,” but to even consider humor with “foul language, vulgar jokes, sexual innuendo, and fake blood” goes against what God has called us to think about. We need more discernment in our entertainment choices.

Corrections

The breach of the U.S. Capitol occurred on Jan. 6, 2021 (“The president who walked a tightrope,” March 12, p. 26).

Anne Lamott’s story about a 2-year-old who locked himself in his room was from her book Operating Instructions (“The last leaf,” Feb. 26, p. 70).
