Dancing around the issue

Editor's SpikeI never liked to dance, not even back in the day.

I was always a little bit late to the party. I was perfectly content being a wall flower at prom. I was humming “A White Sports Coat and a Pink Carnation” while everybody else was doing the herky-jerky. I entirely missed the twist craze, but what’s new? Still, I think I understand deep beauty in dance from a handful

Discipleship model for the New Testament Church

by Pastor Steve Ellison

When Paul found it necessary to leave the island of Crete, he left Titus in his place of leadership. Paul tasked Titus with finding and developing leadership for the various churches on the island.

The first chapter of Titus makes it very clear that it is more important to look for character than skill in establishing church leadership. Paul went on to say tell Titus that

Capitol Perspectives: Passing echoes of legislative bipartisanship 

By Phill Brooks

This summer, Missouri lost one of the two state leaders involved in an historic partnership of cross-party collaboration. The partnership arose after the November 2000 elections that cost Democrats control of the Senate that they had enjoyed for generations.

But Republicans could not take over because voters handed the Senate a 17-17 tie with neither side holding a majority. Compounding the problem was that three Senate members

Poosey Digest: 10 things about fall festivals

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

The season of fall festivals is upon us as every little burg worth it’s pork chops, barbecue or burgoo rolls out the annual carpet of welcome and folks from near and far come flocking homeward. I’ve found over the years that these autumnal fests have just about everything except a reliable manual on how to attend. People coming in from the city often

Dream and ask, ‘Why not?’

SpikeCan you repeat one quote from either current presidential candidate so inspiring that you’ll still be thinking upon it 50 years from now?

I don’t know what you think of the Kennedys. Each certainly was flawed (aren’t we all?). But while delivering the eulogy to his late brother after the assassination of Robert Kennedy, it was Edward who put to voice: “There are those that look at things the way

The Shepherd Calls: Labor for the Kingdom

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

The first Labor Day holiday in the United States was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City.  Originally, it was a day to celebrate our workers and seek ways to improve their working conditions.   Over time it was designated as a national holiday to be celebrated on the first Monday of September.  The designation of that date has come to mark the

Let No One Deceive You

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Ephesians 5:1-6 is a sobering passage, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. 3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must

Poosey Digest: Let’s hear it for the Boomers!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

“Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

When the poet Dylan Thomas wrote these lines in 1947 I have no idea how he knew so many people ’round Poosey. He drank a good deal so maybe he was just imagining things, but more and

In response to Rep. Tony Dugger’s resignation from the House of Representatives, Ryan Johnson, President of the Missouri Alliance for Freedom, called on the Missouri Legislature to follow through with its ethics reform priorities and to strengthen the new revolving door law.

“Tony Dugger’s resignation from the House does not make him a bad person. It does, however, illustrate the need for a more robust fix to the problem that
