Just outside Eureka Springs in the Arkansas Ozarks–itself a divine place–lies this small, peaceful, non-denominational chapel. Even as I feel the distance between the organized religion I was raised with and myself grow, places like this remind me of why the underlying faith meant and continues to mean so much to me. Designed by E. Fay Jones in 1979, completed in July 1980. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Repentance is not so much remorse for what we have done as the fear of the consequences.”   —   Rochefoucauld

(Which is one of the reasons why I don’t subscribe to any organized religion.  Control – especially, via fear – is highly insulting, to me.  For me, adhering to The Golden Rule suffices.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LOUD SPEAKER

(For some reason, this Jumble feels like a re-run!  Which is a little ironic, considering the comment I just replied to, about a Jumble from 2010!  None of the clue words are new, but all of the jumblings appear to be new.  WordPress has made more changes, and even though I like some of them, I’m not crazy about all of them.  At least they brought back the scroll bar!  But, those aren’t any of your concern.  This is my cross to bear, and I just have to remain flexible.  Of course, the older I get the easier that is said than done.  The answer letter layout was much better than a couple of days ago.  I didn’t comment on yesterday’s, but it was pretty good.  Fine cartoon.  My newspaper was soaking wet this morning, so I printed it off of the e-version that I get in my email.  It’s not terribly clear, but I can make out the shock and annoyance on the audience members faces.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
