What Kind of Father Will That Boy Grow to Be?

He’s a bundle of energy now, living in his own world. Or he’s the toddler beginning to realize how a grin or a little snicker can get you out of all kinds of trouble.

A father mostly learns on the job. What we don’t remember is when the job started. It is not at that time when a man impregnates a woman. There’s more to being a real father. It

My Kind of Judge

by Pastor Steve Ellison

When it comes to religious matters these days, there is a lot of talk about judging. First of all, no one likes to be called to account. Also, much of the attack aimed at creation via an intelligent Creator is not predicated upon science, logic, or reason regarding the feasibility of creation. Rather, much of that attack is based upon the desire to eliminate the idea

Our Father

Orey Steinman was just “messing around” with his computer when he typed his unusual name into an internet search engine. What he learned was shocking. He saw a childhood picture of himself on a website for missing children. The 17 year old learned that his mother had taken him from Canada 14 years ago in the midst of a custody battle.

The Need for Character

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Now and again I’ll read something that just jumps off the page and smacks me in the heart. Such was the case as I was digesting a new book by New York Times writer David Brooks. He titled the work “The Road to Character,” it’s a study of what’s happened inside our hearts and minds in America during the past decades.

More Than Just a Conversation Piece

It was a dirty ol’ thing. No telling how long it was left neglected in the wooden granary, which had become the family’s depository for all sorts of unused relics.

Odd …how mud-dauber wasps found the white plastic hand grips to their liking. I twisted those dirt chunks off and yanked up hard on the handlebars to knock off a thick layer of dust. When the dust finally cleared, some

The Convenience of Unbelief

Stories abound about confrontations between Christians and unbelievers. The most common setting for these accounts is the university campus. Usually, an atheist professor is presented as taunting young believers in class. That scenario of young learners and authoritarian instructors conjures up deep emotions among the saints.

ShepherdCalls_WPNo doubt, some of those stories are true; but I suspect many of them are fiction, products of fearful faithful who want desperately for

Whose Counsel?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Knowing whose advice to accept and whose to reject is a massive step in the ladder of success.

The world is literally filled with people who want to counsel anyone and everyone. Often the advice is very much tainted with a variety of contaminants such as ignorance, stupidity, selfishness, prejudice, greed, covetousness, bitterness, etc. The fact that “misery loves company” is a frequent contaminant. Yes, I

Put Fun Back in Flying

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

As summer creeps up on us, we find more and more harried travelers edging their way toward the airports of our nation. In case you’ve not flown lately, things have not gotten a bit more pleasant. It astounds me that a technological establishment that comes up with quality of life inventions literally by the day, has yet to develop a few simple doo-dads

Character Counts

The two women and one man stood just outside the entrance, oblivious to the rest of us. They were engrossed in conversation on current politics. And they kept getting louder and louder.

I soon found myself alone, still trying to hear what was being presented as a typical day while Gerald Ford was in the Oval Office of the White House. Everyone else had given up. The conversation raging between
