Why does the Bible teach one thing, yet followers of the
Bible live so differently? Why are Christians such hypocrites?
If followers of Christ are not supposed to be violent, if they are to be
lovers and not haters, then why is the church responsible for so much
Maybe you are one of those people who cannot identify
with an institution such as the church or with individual Christians
when you see such an obvious record of injustice and hypocrisy.

John “Jack” W. Hanley of Barnstead, NH, aged 64, passed
away peacefully on March 19, 2017 after a long illness with his family
Jack was predeceased by his parents Leonard M.
Hanley and his mother Alice E. (Foley) Hanley and leaves behind
his loving wife of 45 years Michelle (Beaudette) Hanley, his sister,
June Russell, three children, Patrick Hanley, Danielle Hinton and
Leonard Hanley, three grandchildren Riley Hinton, Shannon Hinton and
Ayla Hanley and several nieces and nephews.
Jack was a successful
businessman who started his own company with his two business partners
30 years ago, successfully growing it to an industry leader today with
his amazing team of employees and belief he had the best people around
him. Jack loved the outdoors and was a well known and respected
world class fly fisherman and upland game hunter. He loved nothing more
than being at the river or in the field hunting and fishing with his
children and friends.
He touched many people’s lives during his
lifetime and always thought of others before himself. To those who knew
him most, there will never be another Jack. His stories filled
rooms with love and laughter.
First and foremost, Jack loved his
family. As Jack, an avid fly fisherman would have wanted, his family
asks that any donations be made to Casting for Recovery or Project
Healing Waters, two fly fishing foundation causes he helped to fund.
A service was heldon Friday, March 24, 2017 at Peaslee Funeral Home by
Fr. Robert F. Cole. Interment will be later in the spring at New
Riverside Cemetery in Alton, NH. To express condolences, please
