Venerable Valentine Visitors

It would soon be Valentine’s Day. The angels gathered around God’s throne in heaven. They needed permission to visit earth on errands of passion and tenderness.

The Healing Angel wanted to visit a couple who was fighting. “They’ve inflicted many wounds,” he said. “If I could heal their hurts, they would realize they still love one another.”

ShepherdCalls_WP“Let there be healing in your wings,” God said. The seraph quickly departed.

Capitol Perspectives: A Salary Squabble in the Senate Family

by Phill Brooks

A drama unfolded in Missouri’s Senate the likes of which have not been seen in more than four decades. It involved a fight over pay raises for legislators and other elected state officials.

The pay hikes, recommended by the Compensation Commission, automatically take effect unless rejected by a two-thirds majority of the House and Senate. The House overwhelmingly had voted down the raises. But when the issue

Good Thinking: Fat Tuesday, Ash Wednesday

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Ash Wednesday is Feb. 18. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. “Lent” comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “lencten” and the German word “lenz,” and refers to the springtime of the year when the days begin to “lengthen.”

Lent, for the Christian community, is that 40-day season (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. Originally, the faithful were required to fast and pray

A Clean Heart

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The word “heart” appears in the Bible approximately 726 times depending on your translation. Likewise, the word “hearts” appears 122 times. The human heart is one of the most important topics in the Word of God.

Genesis 6:5 states that very early in human history things had gotten very bad, “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that

On the High End

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Herb and I seldom do much fancy dining, but every so often we’ll take in a high-end restaurant just to be reminded of what our high ends taste like. There’s nothing like a good meal in a classy place to sort of reward yourself of something you can make up later when you get home.

Mill Wheel Pickled for the Past 25 Years

Danny Heldenbrand would be very interested.

The late Daviess County native, who served 18 years as a county commissioner, was interested in all things Daviess County. He was a GHS alum who took pride in farming and helping people before he suddenly passed away from a heart attack in 2011. Danny understood how many times when you take the initiative and propose something, the initial “good ‘nuf” can actually evolve

Capitol Report: Letter to the District

Dear Fellow NW Missourians,

Today concludes another productive week for legislators at the Missouri capitol, and the weeks to come are sure to get even busier. The Senate has followed the lead of the House and rejected a proposed pay increase for House Members, Senators and the Executive branch. The Dairy Revitalization Act has taken another step through the House toward eventually becoming law. And I was honored to be

Good Thinking: Image Dei Part 2

by Dr. Don Kuehle

In the beginning, the Lord God created Adam & Eve/Men & Women in His own likeness. The Triune God created a whole and complete person — made up of a body, a mind, and a soul. Much like the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God gave each of us a BRAIN, a MIND of our own. Like God, we have the capability to think things

Handling the Word of Truth

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The Bible is a very important book; I believe that it is the most important book ever written. Furthermore, it outweighs the combined weight of every other book ever written. It is a book to be revered and respected; however it is not to be worshiped. Rather, it points the reader to the only proper object of worship.

The Bible is not a self-help book to
