The Shepherd Calls: June, Vacations, and God

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. Wade Paris

June is an interesting month. There are June bugs, June brides, June birthdays (including mine), June Vacation Bible Schools, June graduates, and on and on we might go. June is the beginning of summer, the beginning of our “relaxed time.” Children are out of school, a mixed blessing. Days are longer. Many of us love daylight savings time.

In June our attention often turns to vacations.

Free Speech

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Living in a free society with the ability to speak and write freely about our opinions and beliefs is a precious thing. Couple that with living in an age when virtually anyone and everyone has the ability to make himself or herself heard and you have a complex situation. There are many advantages as well as some disadvantages to this reality. My purpose is not to

Graves Statement on GOP Obamacare Victory

Congressman Sam Graves issued the following statement after a federal judge found President Obama broke the law by handing out subsidies to fund Obamacare (the judge ruled the White House was illegally spending money that was not appropriated by Congress, as increased healthcare costs brought on by Obamacare left many Americans unable to afford coverage without government subsidies):

Capitol Perspectives: Teaching Journalism

by Phill Brooks

For my last column as director of MU’s State Government Reporting Program, I want to describe some of what I’ve sought to teach my students about public policy journalism during the last four decades. While this is not a complete list, maybe it will give you a better understanding of what makes government reporters tick.

Poosey Digest:  Bones tell the story

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

CINCINNATI (AP) “Workers renovating a century-old performance hall discovered human remains under the orchestra pit and now archeologists are planning to analyze the bones.”  The report went on to say that bones have been “popping up” ever since the excavation began. The assortment of bones seems to be from four adult bodies, a quartet so to speak.

I have a group of musician

The Shepherd Calls: Tell Me How to Fix It

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. H. Wade Paris

The speaker spent the first 15 minutes of his preaching time in a harangue about politics. He apologized for it, saying he didn’t like to mix preaching and politics; but he couldn’t seem to contain himself. Though he mentioned no party, his position was clearly partisan. I was a guest, so I didn’t mention it; but, I had come to be spiritually fed — not

Capitol Perspectives: Questions to ask our next gubernatorial candidates

by Phill Brooks

As the Missouri legislative session winds down its 2016 session, I’ve been thinking about the issues lawmakers have left unresolved. Those issues present a foundation for questions that could be asked of the candidates who seek to be Missouri’s governor for the next four legislative sessions.

A major question involves how the candidates would change their approach with the legislature.

For the past eight legislative sessions, Missouri’s

Choices, choices, choices

Spike_WPWe’re in the middle of a choice explosion. Ponder this: Americans now have more choices over more things than any other culture in human history.

Every day we choose from a broad array of foods, media sources, and lifestyles. Today we even have those choosing gender …as if they’re in control of such things. I try to remain optimistic in saying this, and truly, much that is wonderful separating today
