Good Thinking: Wars and Rumors of War

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“Who goes there, in the night, across the storm-swept plain?

We are the ghosts of a valiant war, a million murdered men.

Who goes there, at the dawn, across the sun-swept plain?

We are the hosts of those who swear, it shall not be again!”

— Thomas Curtis Clark

Veterans of valiant wars long-past will remember, and will be remembered, as we observe Veteran’s Day on

Some Thoughts on Governing

by Lee H. Hamilton

I have been working in or around government for over 50 years, and if you asked me to boil down what I’ve learned to one sentence, it is this: Governing is much harder work than most people imagine. This doesn’t excuse its lapses or sluggish rate of progress, but it does help explain them.

Why is it so hard? Partly it’s the country we live in.

Letter to the Editor: Amendment 3

Dear Editor:

In reference to last week’s article in this newspaper, submitted by State Senator Brad Lager, in regard to the voting initiative on Missouri Constitution Amendment 6: In the article, Mr. Lager seems to endorse the measure but then offers a subtle disclaimer by encouraging voters to become educated on this important issue. I’ll shout a big “Amen” to that advice. Has anyone looked closely at the language of

Understanding Revelation

by Pastor Steve Ellison

In the real estate business, location is everything. In Biblical study, context is everything.

First, the Holy Spirit penned Revelation at the end of the apostolic age. It serves as a warning against falling away. It is written to provide the greatest possible encouragement to keep the faith.

The recipients of Revelation were already in the midst of great tribulation and persecution. It had already started

Poosey Digest: Look Death in the Eye

…and laugh

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

When someone mentions near-death experiences, my mind races back to a Halloween party years ago when we were instructed to dress up as the most horrifying creature we knew. Herb had been secretive all week as to what he’d be wearing and we arrived in separate cars. My jaw hit the floor when my husband walked into the church fellowship hall

Be Not in the Dark

by Pastor Steve Ellison

We could spend a lifetime studying what the Bible says about God as Light. What I will do here, could not even qualify as scratching the surface.

1 John 1:5-8 states, This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. (NASU)

God is Light. The Bible refers to Jesus

Good Thinking: Why Should I Vote?

by Dr. Don Kuehle

In 1792, Election Day was set for the Tuesday following the first Monday in November. November was selected because the harvest was over and winter had not yet begun. Tuesday was chosen because, if Monday has been chosen, some might have had to travel on Sunday/the Sabbath.

“He cast his vote, distrusting all the elected — but not the law.” So said Karl Shapiro.

‘Tis the Season

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It seems a shame. Right here in the most beautiful of seasons we’re annually slapped in the face with ugliness. There’s surely no season in the Midwest that rivals autumn for its cornucopia of colors, flavors, fun, and festivals. Springtime is often touted as the most glorious of seasons but when you live in Tornado Alley or your April ritual consists of sandbagging
