Triumphant Living

ShepherdCalls_WPYou likely have read or seen on the news the story of seven-year-old Sailor Gutzler who survived the plane crash which killed her father, mother, sister and cousin. Dressed in clothes designed for Florida weather where they visited recently, she climbed from the wreckage of the plane and walked a mile in freezing weather and briar filled undergrowth to get help.

Her story is a mixture of terrible tragedy and

Religious Freedom in 2015

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Much is said these days about religious freedom. Vocal and impassioned advocates from both ends of the spectrum wail quite a lot about freedom of religion or freedom from religion. Freedom in religion seems a better term. Freedom in Christ is the best term. Christ Himself spoke about it.

In the midst of a heated argument with the unbelieving Jewish leaders, Christ turned to the believing

I’m Trying …Really Trying

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m trying. I swear I’m trying. I look at the birth date on my driver’s license and tell myself that I’m out of whack, I’ve got it all wrong, and must have a screw loose. When a person gets my age she’s supposed to turn conservative. That’s what all the statistics say, so I’m trying. I swear I’m trying.

I went into the

Letter to the Editor: McClung and O’Daniel Family Heirlooms

Dear Darryl,

I found the website http://daviesscountyhistoricalsociety.com/ while searching for the family of our great aunt, Beatrice McClung Hanson, and found your email. She was married later in life to my great uncle John Sven Aaron Hanson. She is the daughter of Alex N. McClung and Anna O’Daniel.

We have found McClung/O’Daniel family heirlooms while going through our mother’s items. We do not want them, but would like to return

The Brains of This Outfit

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’ve always been fascinated by people who are fascinated, especially if they have a fascination for things that are old. Billions of bucks are spent on restoring old cars, putting old tractors on display, refinishing vintage furniture and homes. Lots of reasons for this I suppose.

There’s something to be said for the quality of a hand-hewn fireplace mantel or the way a

Resolved in 2015

by Pastor Steve Ellison

January 1 is a day like any other day. There is really nothing special about it to set it apart from any other day of the year. However, it does provide a reminder to evaluate our lives and resolve to make beneficial changes.

One area of life comes to mind in which most of us are in desperate need of resolve. I am amazed at the

Joining Hands with the Creator

It’s just a board, about 6 inches wide and 30 inches long. To me, it’s among the best I have. For some time now, I have been looking at it. My wife gave me a new saw for Christmas; since shop tools are among my favorite gifts; and I’ve been thinking what I might make from this board.

ShepherdCalls_WPIt’s a special piece. It is walnut, a beautiful wood to admire

Before Making Up Your Mind…

Dw.cdrBefore you make up your mind about the City of Gallatin taking control of the cupola and adjacent building on the east side of the business square, there is much to consider.

The catalyst for ownership change was private business.

The idea for city controlling the cupola building originated with Dean Hales. But, really, every owner with property on the square has a vested interest. When buildings are abandoned, the

Capital Report: Final Update …and Farewell

by State Sen. Brad Lager

In November of 1863, President Abraham Lincoln shared his belief that our nation’s democracy would not perish as long as we have a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people.” It has always been my belief that our founding fathers never intended for public service to be a career but instead our obligation and opportunity as citizens to serve our communities.
