Seek the Welfare of the City

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Perhaps you know it already; maybe you have never heard; or maybe you simply need to be reminded. As a Christian, you are just a pilgrim passing through. Your heart must not be focused on the temporary world in which you live. Rather, you should be focused on the next world. Like Abraham, you should be seeking the city which is built by God. However, as

Good Thinking: Ruth’s Journey

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul;

What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss

To bear the dreadful cross for my soul, for my soul?”

The most beautiful “love story” in the Bible is found the Book of Ruth!

Due to a famine in Israel, Elimelech and his wife Naomi, along with their two sons Mahlon and Chilion,

Leave a Good Legend

Among the outstanding people of Christian history, St. Patrick is one of my favorites. He reportedly died on March 17 (the year is uncertain). Nevertheless, March 17 is listed on our calendar as St. Patrick’s Day.

Those Lonely Millionaires

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WP“Herb, could I borrow $30,000?”

“Sure. You want that it small bills or should I just write a check?”

“I’m serious.”

“Me, too. Look in my billfold and, if you can find $30,000, it’s yours, Freida.”

“Fine.”

“Not that it matters, but why do you need that much money?”

“I want to help out a millionaire.”

“Oh. Heck, why didn’t you say so?

Learning to Be a Citizen

by Lee H. Hamilton

The question usually comes toward the end of a public meeting. Some knotty problem is being discussed, and someone in the audience will raise his or her hand and ask, “Okay, so what can I do about it?”

I love that question. Not because I’ve ever answered it to my satisfaction, but because it bespeaks such a constructive outlook. Democracy is no spectator sport and citizens

Capitol Perspectives: Thinking on Tom Schweich

by Phill Brooks

News that Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot has caused me to wonder about the tough and unforgiving environment that I cover. I worry that what I enjoy covering were factors in his death.

This is a man I will remember fondly. I will miss our conversations.

He was eager to talk with reporters about government issues. He regularly wandered the statehouse

An Adoption Story

The front page of the Kansas City Star contained the story of an attorney, Gene Balloun, who has assisted in more than 1,000 adoptions. The story caught my attention for several reasons: First, because I share his compassion for children. Second, because this attorney did his work pro bono, the compensation he would have received was placed in an account to assist in the children’s education. Third, the story intrigued

Good Thinking: Samuel and a Journey of Prayer

by Dr. Don Kuehle 

Samuel was an Old Testament prophet, priest, and judge. Samuel’s life from birth to death was a “journey-of-prayer.” Before he was born, his mother Hannah prayed for a son. God heard and answered her prayer. Samuel came into this world; his name meant “name of God.” In her joy, Hannah dedicated her son to God; and gave him into the hands of Eli, the high priest,

What on Earth Are You Here For?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Man has long struggled in his quest to know a reason for his existence. Philosophers and theologians alike have spent their lives trying to solve this mystery.

Some Christians believe that God does not take a person immediately to heaven upon placing faith in Christ because He has a mission or job for the believer here on earth. While that may be true, I do not
