It’s a Paradox

ShepherdCalls_WPTim Kreider, a cartoonist and author, insists that idleness is not all bad. He says it provides the space and quiet necessary to stand back and see all the issues — the big picture. It is “paradoxically necessary to getting work done.”

Those words caught my attention for two reasons: First, because I have been sitting here idle for some time trying to determine what to write about; and second,

Please Rend the Heavens!

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The United States of America in 2014 is in desperate need of reform. The list of things wrong is beyond numbering. Virtually all of the things gone wrong can be traced back to human behavior. Real and lasting reform will take place only when God rends the heavens.

Good Thinking: Saturday’s Child

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“Monday’s child is fair of face,

Tuesday’s child is full of grace,

Wednesday’s child is full of woe,

Thursday’s child has far to go,

Friday’s child is loving and giving,

Saturday’s child has to work for a living.”

I don’t recall the day of the week on which I was born; most of us don’t. I do feel, most times, like Saturday’s child; I have to

A Serious Condition

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Herb and I have a great doctor. The little rascal can out-diagnose the best and he keeps up-to-date on the latest tonics, pills, and potions. If the paperwork doesn’t kill him we plan to keep the guy forever.

But there’s one malady I’ve contracted that even the town’s finest physician can’t cure. After a long weary year of wars, epidemics, tyrants, and weather

Letter to a Little One

Dear Little Emmy,

Welcome to the world! Your arrival Friday came earlier than the doctors predicted. I like that. Perhaps you already know not to depend on the “experts” for such things, especially those things that are really just between you and God. We’re experts at making noise here. Never allow anything here on this earth to get between you and your Maker.

Despite the birth of your big brother

Capital Report: Celebrating Missouri’s State Fair

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last week marked the beginning of the 2014 Missouri State Fair. As the events kick off at the fairgrounds in Sedalia, we are reminded of the important role agriculture has played in shaping the history and culture of our state.

The timing of this year’s fair is particularly appropriate, as two days prior to its opening, Missouri voters narrowly approved a constitutional amendment reaffirming and

The Glory of the Lord

ShepherdCalls_WPI was on my knees, but I was not there to pray. I was on my knees in the garden transplanting vines I hope will eventually cover ugly places in the lawn. The joy of the moment brought to mind the scripture that says, “And the glory of the Lord shone round about them.” (Luke 2:9) Those words were spoken of the shepherds when the angels announced Jesus’ birth to

Benefits of Evangelism

by Pastor Steve Ellison

I just returned from a week of sharing the gospel at the motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D. I saw a lot of indecency and profanity but I was pleasantly surprised at the general lack of animosity. I cannot say that the response was generally positive because disdain was the most common response. However, only a few people were downright antagonistic.

I was impressed by the lack

Good Thinking: Back-to-School Days

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“School days, school day, good old Golden Rule days;

Readin’ and Writin’ and ‘Rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick.”

School days have always been important days. Even for those of us who remember the “good old days,” school shaped our lives. We recall when life was less complicated. We attended a one-room school. Discipline was strict; the hickory stick was used by the
