Good Thinking: Autumn Reverie

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Autumn takes center stage mid the heat of September and exits on cue

in the cold of December. No other season moves from one extreme to the other like autumn. The poets help us see the complexity of autumn.

“Across the pearly distance it lies on hill and stream,

In banks of airy turquoise as softly as a dream.

A slumberous smoke that rises serenely in

Be Fruitful

ShepherdCalls_WPSeveral days ago, the Kansas City Star ran a front-page story about carrier pigeons, aka passenger pigeons. The article seemed so unbelievable, I checked it out in several other sources. It seems this bird was once the most prolific bird in America and perhaps in the world. Historical documents of our earliest settlers tell of flocks so large they darkened the sky and took hours to pass over. A Virginia

Capitol Perspectives: He’s No Cato the Younger

by Phill Brooks

Unless he chooses to run for the state Senate in two years, the legislature’s recent veto session may mark the statehouse conclusion for one of the most politically collaborative lawmakers I’ve covered.

He’s Chris Kelly, Columbia’s long-term House Democrat and the legislature’s senior member. His impending departure has led me to think about the stark contrast between Kelly and ancient Rome’s Cato the Younger.

Praying for Brothers

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Acts 18 tells about Paul’s work in Corinth. Paul was staying in the home of Aquilla and Priscilla while making tents and testifying about Christ in the synagogue. Unbelieving Jews threw Paul out of the synagogue, so God in His marvelous way arranged for Paul to move into the home of Titius Justus, who just happened to live next door to the synagogue. Paul lived there

Poosey Digest: Edith’s Cornballs

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Pity our poor National Anthem. As it celebrates its 200th birthday this year the song has been much maligned as “unsingable,” “war like,” and simply old-fashioned. The fellow who penned it after watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812 meant it to be nothing more than a poem. He never intended for someone to set it to a piece

The President and Congress Should Work Together

On military intervention

by Lee H. Hamilton

In his speech last week outlining his plans to use military force against the jihadists of the Islamic State, President Obama gave Congress only passing mention. “I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL,” he said. “But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.”

He’s right, of course. But that’s not the half

Lookin’ for the Sizzle

Dw.cdrRemember that TV commercial now in distant past, where one of the two ol’ ladies standing in line at a hamburger joint looked down, holding mostly a bun, and blared: “Where’s the beef?”

Sometimes life’s like that. Sometimes you can spend a lot of time working on something you think you can sink your teeth into only to eventually realize what you wind up with is not quite what you

Good Thinking: September Song

by Dr. Don Kuehle

September is one of those “in-between” months. September stands in between the last days of summer and the first days of fall. September is a one-of-a-kind month; she has her own song to sing. September’s song is a joyful song, a melody for all those “in-between” times in life. As Helen Hunt Jackson writes…

“The goldenrod is yellow; The corn is turning brown;

The trees in

The Art of Following

ShepherdCalls_WPAfter church, some friends and I were going to lunch. Since I was in their city, I asked them to select a restaurant. They told me the name of the restaurant and said, “Follow me.” Somewhere, in the brief one-mile journey to a nice sit-down eatery, another auto got between us. When I followed that car into a drive-in restaurant, I realized I was following the wrong vehicle. Fortunately, my
