Sun Lakes UM offering Tuesday programs, Bible study

By Cathy Smoot

Sun Lakes United Methodist Church at 9248 E Riggs Road hosts “Tuesday Nights Together,” a series of free programs every month.

Topics vary from light and entertaining to serious and informing. A light meal is offered for a free-will offering at 5:30 p.m. prior to the 6 p.m. program.

On Oct. 11, the program will focus on a Civil War general who was a soldier and a diplomat.

To this day, Gen. Winfield Scott was America’s preeminent soldier and diplomat.

Historians often paint a distorted picture of “Old Fuss and Feathers” due to his advanced age at the onset of the Civil War, failing to recognize earlier accomplishments. 

Over much of the 19th century, Scott designed and commanded a professional army that proved over and over again his war making skills.

However, he won many of his most stunning victories short of fighting and without shedding blood.
