The Shepherd Calls: Listen to the thunder

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

“Did you hear that thunder last night?” my wife asked.

“No, I didn’t hear it. Was it loud?”

“Why, it shook the house. Lightning must have struck close by. Keely (our dog) got right beside the bed.”

Oh, my! I love to hear the thunder roll; I love to watch the rain. Yet, I slept through it all.

There are several instances in the Bible

Good Thinking: Be my Valentine

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“God made my heart a valentine; Inscribed it with His light divine.

He filled it with some lovely things: early songbirds in the Spring,

Snowflakes and wayside flowers, golden moments and golden hours.

He added yet sincerity, and hope and faith and charity;

Plus love and mirth and mischief, too,

And made my valentine for you!”   — Minnie Klemme

Valentine’s Day is Feb. 14. We love

The Shepherd Calls: Valentine’s value

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

On a south sea island, there lived a shy girl named Sy, the fifth daughter and last child of a family who wanted a son. She grew up being told she was a disappointment. The family needed a son. As you might expect, she was disappointed in herself and lacked self- esteem.

In her culture, men purchased wives from the fathers. Suitors courted the girls;

God’s Strange Work

by Pastor Steve Ellison

God granted an extremely rare privilege to Moses in Exodus 34:6-7, “Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished.” (NASU)

God’s first inclination is always

Good Thinking: Februarius

by Dr. Don Kuehle

What time is it? Who can say. History records that people through the ages have changed time to suit themselves. Once there were only 10 months in the Calendar Year. The year began with the month of March. Some Roman Emperor decreed that two additional months be added to the calendar. He named them “Januarius” and “Februarius” and placed them at the end of the calendar

The Shepherd Calls: Prayer perspective

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

Most mornings I am the first one up at our house. With a cup of coffee in my hand, I sit in front of the fire (we have gas logs) and pray. I have devotional books and Bible selections I love to read. It is a precious time of prayer. I look forward to it and miss it when it doesn’t happen.

As sweet as

Nearer to God

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Perhaps you are familiar with David Brainerd (1718-1747), faithful missionary to the Delaware Indians. I am reprinting his Jan. 1, 1746, journal entry below, written when he was 28 years old. It is sobering and convicting and encouraging to me, and I suspect that it will be to you also. He was orphaned at the age of 14 and would die from tuberculosis just 22 months

The Great Light

by Pastor Steve Ellison

One of the recurring themes of both the Old and New Testaments is that the “fear of the Lord” is the beginning of wisdom and leads to all sorts of temporal and eternal benefits. Smack dab in the middle of Isaiah’s Immanuel Prophecies, we find this warning in Isaiah 8:12-15:
“You are not to fear what they fear or be in dread of it. It is

Good Thinking: The wisdom of Father Time

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The cartoon highlights the front page of the paper: old Father Time meeting the baby New Year at the beginning of another year. As they meet and pass each other, I wonder what words went between them? Did Father Time wish the new year well? Did he offer the baby New Year words of wisdom? Did the New Year ask about the past? Did baby New
