AROUND TOWN On March 29, grandparents arrived that morning for breakfast and then an onstage performance, “Royal Celebration,” that featured their grandchildren from preschool to fifth grade in their costumes singing, acting and playing in the band. Afterward, grandparents visited their grandchildren’s classrooms to see what their grandchildren have learned this school year. Many children made special cards and works of art for their grandparents as well. For weeks, students rehearsed “royal” songs and skits to honor their special guests.

MINISTRY LEADERS BRIAN AND EDIE SANDERS DESCRIBE THEIR 38-YEAR MARRIAGE AS “GLORIOUSLY HARD.” “Women tend to view life in color. Men typically view life in black and white,” Brian says. Both say couples should look beyond their differences and remember they are on the same team  and that differences aren't wrong—just different. The two share some common phrases that men and women often interpret differently.
