More Than Just a Conversation Piece

It was a dirty ol’ thing. No telling how long it was left neglected in the wooden granary, which had become the family’s depository for all sorts of unused relics.

Odd …how mud-dauber wasps found the white plastic hand grips to their liking. I twisted those dirt chunks off and yanked up hard on the handlebars to knock off a thick layer of dust. When the dust finally cleared, some

The Convenience of Unbelief

Stories abound about confrontations between Christians and unbelievers. The most common setting for these accounts is the university campus. Usually, an atheist professor is presented as taunting young believers in class. That scenario of young learners and authoritarian instructors conjures up deep emotions among the saints.

ShepherdCalls_WPNo doubt, some of those stories are true; but I suspect many of them are fiction, products of fearful faithful who want desperately for

Whose Counsel?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Knowing whose advice to accept and whose to reject is a massive step in the ladder of success.

The world is literally filled with people who want to counsel anyone and everyone.

Character Counts

The two women and one man stood just outside the entrance, oblivious to the rest of us. They were engrossed in conversation on current politics. And they kept getting louder and louder.

The Poosey Digest: Questions Abroad

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

“So. . .George Bush. Is he an evil man?”

PooseyDigest_WPThat’s the first question the young Russian student asked me when we sat down for coffee one night in a Moscow coffee house. He was referring to George the First and the poor kid had been fed such a line of propaganda that he was truly afraid that the elder Bush was going to

We recently celebrated Memorial Day. We rightly remembered those who gave everything they had to give. We gave honor where honor was due. We saluted men and women who gave their very lives in defense of our cherished freedoms. We maintained and decorated graves of war heroes and others all across this great country of ours. There are other great things that we ought to remember.

Little Girl Learning

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

It was one of the freakiest things that ever happened in our neck of the woods and only many years later were we able to piece the catastrophe together. I’m still not sure I have the whole story, but here it is as best I can relate it:
