Fathers, the hour has come

by Pastor Steve Ellison

For centuries Christians and non-Christians alike were in perfect agreement about the importance of fathers to the well-being of families, neighborhoods, communities, cities, states, and countries. In recent times, that truth has been conveniently ignored in order to keep from casting aspersions on “alternate lifestyles.”

As the Church, we need to hold high the mantle of fatherhood. We need to raise our expectations of fathers. We

Christian Fellowship

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Church members have a lot of misconceptions about Christian fellowship and Christian unity. The New Testament speaks much of being of one accord and being in unity. Agreement is not unity. Agreement can be simply a matter of behavior. Unity will involve attitude and heart. Unity will involve the spirit as well as the letter. The Bible is clear that unity is a gift from God,

The Shepherd Calls: Word Pictures

ShepherdCalls_WP

The wall in my home office is covered with pictures. In the center of those pictures, there is a family portrait. Many of the pictures around it are family, too. Some of the pictures predate me, like the one of my wife’s grandfather’s family and the picture of my maternal grandmother. Then there are graduation pictures of my wife and me. There are pictures of our children when they were

Memorial Day Remembrances

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 The Civil War, our bloodiest war, gave birth to holidays honoring those who gave their all for their country. In 1868, the United States set aside May 30th to remember their great sacrifice. Since 1971, in classic American seeking of self, we have chosen to take a three day weekend by choosing to take a day off from work on the last Monday in May.

The Shepherd Calls: June, Vacations, and God

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. Wade Paris

June is an interesting month. There are June bugs, June brides, June birthdays (including mine), June Vacation Bible Schools, June graduates, and on and on we might go. June is the beginning of summer, the beginning of our “relaxed time.” Children are out of school, a mixed blessing. Days are longer. Many of us love daylight savings time.

In June our attention often turns to vacations.

Free Speech

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Living in a free society with the ability to speak and write freely about our opinions and beliefs is a precious thing. Couple that with living in an age when virtually anyone and everyone has the ability to make himself or herself heard and you have a complex situation. There are many advantages as well as some disadvantages to this reality. My purpose is not to

The Shepherd Calls: Tell Me How to Fix It

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. H. Wade Paris

The speaker spent the first 15 minutes of his preaching time in a harangue about politics. He apologized for it, saying he didn’t like to mix preaching and politics; but he couldn’t seem to contain himself. Though he mentioned no party, his position was clearly partisan. I was a guest, so I didn’t mention it; but, I had come to be spiritually fed — not
