Be Not Afraid

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Hebrews 10:31 states a sobering truth, “It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” However, one of the dominant themes of both the Old and New Testaments is a recurring promise that God gives regarding His faithfulness. He repeatedly declares that we have no reason to be afraid because He will never leave us and never forsake us.

Columbus Day Quandary

ShepherdCalls_WPNext Monday is Columbus Day, a day set aside to celebrate the arrival of Christopher Columbus on the North American continent. Like many of our holiday celebrations, this one is filled with ethical dilemmas.

In the first place, Columbus did not really discover America. There were many indigenous people here already. The Vikings had also visited these continents 500 years earlier. That would be a millennium ago for you and

Therefore, the future of our state and nation rest directly on our ability to create a workforce that is capable of competing globally.

To Spank or Not to Spank?

Dw.cdrMy dad had a big hand in raising us kids.

Let me explain.

I grew up in the B.C. age (before computers). All things were much simpler then. Today we wonder what is child abuse and what is not. Back then there was no ambiguity on Dad’s part. Spanking was not his only means of discipline. But in my view of the world it was the ultimate.

Dad had no

About Forgetting

SShepherdCalls_WPhe arrived late for church. She is never late. A neat, wispy lady – her red eyes told me she’d been crying. “Are you okay?” I asked, knowing full well she wasn’t.

“This Alzheimer’s business is awful,” she said staring at me. There was resigned panic in her voice. Not long ago, she was diagnosed with the disease. She still babysits her grandchildren, and she awoke in the night

Betrayed

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Psalm 41 and Psalm 55 are written by David. Each describes a time when David was betrayed by a close personal friend. Each records great pain and anguish in the heart and mind of David.

Jesus quotes Psalm 41:9 in John 13:18 and applies it to Himself. I think it is a very helpful exercise to compare and contrast David’s situation with that of Jesus.

The Conflab That Counts

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Our church’s longest-standing tradition has nothing to do with baptisms, communion or Christmas pageants, but the annual Fall Bazaar. Once a year we celebrate the gathering of the crops even though our congregation has only a handful of farmers. Every October we drag in armloads of dead cornstalks, fall foliage, and more cider than our digestive systems can safely tolerate, then hold a

Good Thinking: Autumn Gold

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Fall is here. The trees are dressed in their colorful garb: green and orange and yellow and gold. Fall reminds us that this world is a place of beauty. Fall reminds us of what is most important in life; and of what is not important.January 1848! Gold is discovered at Sutter’s Fort, California! The news

Capitol Perspectives: The Lion of the Lobbyists

by Phill Brooks

This past summer, Missouri lost the undisputed lion of our state’s lobbyists – John Britton.

In his prime, Britton was one of the state’s most powerful figures. But there was much more to Britton. He also was a mentor, teacher, friend and adviser to generations of Missouri public leaders.

His funeral was a demonstration of that depth, bringing together past and present government leaders from across decades.
