Hagar and the Angel of the Lord

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Genesis 16 records the very first appearance of the Angel of the Lord to a human being. “Angel of the Lord” occurs 56 times in the Old Testament and 12 times in the New Testament.

The story of Hagar, a young, pregnant Egyptian servant girl provides the setting. The father of the baby was Abram, the servant’s owner/master. This made Sarai, the man’s wife, angry even

Letter to the Editor: Tough Times

Dear Editor:

Times are tough! They are tough for all of us. It doesn’t take very long watching or listening to the news to figure out times are tough everywhere. It makes everyone nervous, grouchy, irritable, and not being able to see that glass half full, only half empty.

For those who have jobs, whether you’re happy with it or not, you really are one of the lucky ones. Jobs,

Worthy Front Page News

Dw.cdrIt has been quite some time since you’ve read an obituary printed on the front page of this publication. This is a topic we should discuss although the timing is never quite right. After all, every week someone within our community passes from this life. And, quite frankly, I’m not at all comfortable deciding who gets top billing whenever the bell tolls.

When I first arrived in Gallatin, many people

Pings and Pangs

ShepherdCalls_WPWith keen interest, my wife and I listened as the Australian retired Chief Air Marshal Angus Houston reported about ships listening for pings from the flight data recorder of the missing Malaysian airliner MH370. He said two different ships were thought to have heard pings from the plane’s black box. The pings were from different areas of the ocean but seemingly of the right frequency. However, he cautioned that the

Good Thinking: The Psalm Sunday Parade

by Dr. Don Kuehle

It’s Palm Sunday! Welcome to the Palm Sunday Parade! We’ve set up our broadcast booth here on the hillside overlooking the holy city of Jerusalem. From here we can look out over the Holy City — rows and rows of houses; the business district on the right; to the left is Herod’s Palace; and in the heart of the city is the Temple of Jehovah, gleaming

The Choice

by Pastor Steve Ellison

In Matthew 21 and 22, Jesus told a series of parables aimed primarily at identifying, defining, and condemning hypocrisy. The Parable of the Two Sons, the Parable of the Wicked Tenants (more accurately the Parable of the Landowner), and the Parable of the Wedding Feast each teach us about the terrible dangers of hypocrisy. However, our always gracious and forgiving God stood ready to forgive. In

Flavor Food with Healthful Herbs

by Janet Hackert, Regional Nutrition and Health Education Specialist

University of Missouri Extension

Many people are preparing their gardens for flowers and vegetables. It’s also the time to prepare to grow herbs indoors or out. With an herb garden or containers on a patio, flavoring food with healthful herbs can be so handy.

Fresh herbs can add health benefits along with flavor. For example, a quarter cup of basil has

Time to Fix Government

by Lee H. Hamilton

In 1965, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, Wilbur Mills, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House. That was my first year in Congress, and I remember vividly the moment when Mills came to the Democratic caucus to explain his plans.

Many of us had been swept into office in the 1964 Democratic wave that accompanied Lyndon

Talking Inanimately

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I walked in on my friend June this week. She didn’t answer the door but this is Poosey… you just walk in. I thought I heard her voice in the back of the house so I assumed she had visitors, but when I walked into her den she was alone… talking. One woman sitting in a chair talking.

I knew that June was
