Just Tryin’ to Stay Healthy

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPNo one in our fourth-grade class wanted to sit by Willa Reeder. Her mama came directly from Kentucky and hardly a week passed without us hearing some strange tales of Mrs. Reeder’s strange habits and incantations. But the worst of the lady’s ministrations was when she’d send her children to school in the winter with garlic tied around their necks. Mrs. Reeder claimed

Coming After Christ

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Disciples follow their masters. Coming after a master certainly means following in his footsteps, learning what he has learned, experiencing the good, the bad, and the ugly that he has experienced.

Jesus fully expected that His disciples would come after Him. Matthew 16, Mark 8, and Luke 9 each record a lengthy statement from Jesus which deals with the disciples following Him. I want to deal

Letter to the Editor: Hometown Pride

Dear Editor:

My husband and I were born in the Gallatin area, and graduated from Jameson High School.

It is with pride that we read about the many projects a small number of people accomplish. The areas are blessed to have so many people who give of their time, money, and physical labor to help others.

Blessed Departure

by Pastor Steve Ellison

We often get the idea that the disciples and other first century Jews had a great advantage over us today; they got to walk and talk with Jesus while He was here on earth in the flesh. However, Jesus contradicts that thought in the great final teaching discourse He delivered to the disciples on the night before His crucifixion. Jesus plainly taught His disciples that they

Good Thinking: In Bleak Mid-Winter

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“In the bleak mid-winter frosty wind made moan;

Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.” — Christina Rossetti

Winter is a tough time! Temperatures plunge. Thermometers range from 32 to 0 degrees. The wind-chill freezes us to the bone. The good earth is frozen hard as concrete. Water turns to ice. The sun hides its face. Clouds cover the sky. Our days are short.

A Matter of Perspective

ShepherdCalls_WPIt’s a beautiful story. It’s more than a story. It’s fact. Peggy Wallace Kennedy, daughter of the late governor George Wallace, and Donzaleigh Abernathy, daughter of the late civil rights activist Ralph David Abernathy, each witnessed the Selma Alabama civil rights march 50 years ago and emerged with the same opinions.

Jesus’ words, “Out of the mouth of babes” (Matthew 21:16) comes to mind as I think about this story.

Hey, Let’s Party!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt happens every winter. You stare out the window at the endless parade of snow and cold and ice and wind and you purposely turn off the weather channel when they talk about the forecast for Los Angeles and Miami. That person you married starts looking way too familiar and even your rugs start staring back at you with a dreariness that could

Just Say ‘No’ to Mr. Kroenke

You could see this coming.

I believe “blackmail” is the appropriate word. There’s a power play underway to squeeze more of our tax dollars to benefit the already wealthy.

Billionaire Stan Kroenke, who owns the St. Louis Rams professional football team, announced a partnership to put a privately financed, 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles area if voters there approve.

Dw.cdrThis stadium is part of plans to develop a 238-acre
