Hobby Lobby: Much to Ponder

Dw.cdrThe nearest Hobby Lobby is at St. Joseph, almost 50 miles away. There are 11 stores within a 100 miles of Gallatin. But that distance melted away when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Obama administration’s mandate to require private companies to provide contraceptives to employees.

Have you paid attention to the Hobby Lobby controversy and recent Supreme Court decision? How close to home does the Supreme Court ruling

The great crash

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

We were thrown into crisis mode. I had never seen my friends in such a panic. No fire, earthquake or flood could have affected our region so drastically, and the effects of the catastrophe still linger today in frayed nerves and irregular heartbeats. Last week the AT&T cell phone network went down and the world of some folks came to a crashing halt.

Are We Doomed to Polarization?

by Lee H. Hamilton

We Americans are trapped in a political dilemma. We all like representative democracy, but we don’t much like the way it’s performing.

The reason for this dissatisfaction is clear. Polls in recent years detail a polarized nation, divided both ideologically and politically. This is, as the Pew Research Center put it recently, “a defining feature of politics today.” In the public’s eye, Washington gets most of

Good Thinking: Just Call Me ‘Mr. Ambassador’

by Dr. Don Kuehle

What do James Cuningham, Larry Palmer, Denise Bauer, Carlos Moreno, and Daniel Shields have in common? They’re all U. S. Ambassadors to other countries. They are citizens of this country, living and working in another country. As ambassadors, the men and women represent the best interests of the United States.

What do the people in a Christian congregation have in common? They are all God’s Ambassadors

Nothing is Free

ShepherdCalls_WPIt was dinnertime. My wife and I sat at the table watching all the activity behind our house. Three deer were by the salt block and more down in the woods. Several turkeys wandered around the yard scavenging. The hummingbirds were busily eating at the feeders and buzzing one another.

Woodpeckers and tufted titmice were making regular visits to the peanut feeder. Cardinals, blue jays, and rose-breasted grosbeaks were eating

What is Faith?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Hebrews 11:6 is about as straight forward as a verse could possibly be, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” (NASU)

If any human wants to please the Creator, he will have to exercise faith in the Creator. The created human will have

Will There Be a Fall Festival in Gallatin This Year?

Dw.cdrProbably not, unless someone steps forward immediately and in a commanding manner. Time to organize properly grows short. And perhaps too many people simply don’t care anymore.

The first modern Chautauqua stage in Gallatin was set in 1986. The festival was an expansion of the popular Lions Club Flea Market. The previous year over 130 booths had lined the square on Flea Market Sunday; the first Chautauqua added 50 more.

Good Thinking: Dealing with Doubt

by Dr. Don Kuehle

It was doubt that got us all into trouble! Adam and Eve resided in Paradise; they had it all. They had more than enough food and shelter; they received more than enough love and acceptance from God; they enjoyed the satisfaction of working alongside God; they were surrounded by the protective limits God had set. But Satan planted doubts in their minds…

Eve: “God said that

Circles

ShepherdCalls_WPSome time ago, I attended a meeting where a colleague was trying to get a motion passed. Basically, I agreed with his motion. It was biblical. He quoted several scriptures in his presentation. A chorus of “Amen” indicated many people agreed; but when it came time to vote, I voted against it.

I had several problems with his motion. First, his attitude and demeanor in presenting the motion seemed lacking
