The Sanctity of Life

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Most humans will concede in theory that life is sacred. However, many people will, under pressure, give in to ignoble desires and proclaim that exceptions ought to be made. God does not allow for that kind of reasoning; He is very strict and firm regarding the absolute sanctity of all human life.

Genesis 1:26 tells us that God planned to create man in His image. The

When I Am Afraid

“[Lord] when I am afraid, I will trust in You.” These words from the psalmist are certainly applicable for us today. If we didn’t already have sufficient reasons for concern, the events of the last few days have certainly given us cause.

The Poosey Digest

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI’m not sure what to do with a 53-year-old can of green beans. There’s no expiration date since such labeling wasn’t required in 1962. In fact, I’d forgotten I had them until President Obama announced that we’d be ending our long-standing embargo with Cuba.

Once upon a scary time in our nation’s history, a round little Russian named Nikita sent a few shiploads

Capitol Perspectives: Making a Difference in the Legislature

by Phill Brooks

A few weeks before the start of this year’s legislative session, I was asked by a legislative staffer if I could remember when a wave of new legislators had made a difference. The question was asked in the context of the enormous gains voters handed Republicans in November.

To that staffer’s question, I had to think a bit. It is very difficult for a group of new

Letter to the Editor: Beliefs About Adam-ondi-Ahman

Dear Editor:

In response to our previous conversation regarding the December article “So… You Think You Know Daviess County,” I offer the following clarification of the question: Why does Adam-ondi-Ahman have significance to those of the Mormon faith?

It is not our belief that Adam was buried at Adam-ondi-Ahman or that it was the Garden of Eden as stated in the article. I hope the following will be a more

Remembering Dizzy

With windchill temperatures dipping below zero, it may seem odd to talk about baseball. But that’s one of the sport’s strengths – the promise of spring while in the grip of fierce winter. Another compelling thing about baseball is its history, woven into the fabric of our society.

Dizzy.

Dw.cdrWith this one word, you immediately travel back decades in time, at least for Cardinals baseball fans.

Dizzy Dean stands among

No One Who Works Full Time Should Be Poor in This Country

by Lee H. Hamilton

Recent economic news has been broadly reassuring. Retail sales are strong, November saw the best job gains in three years, the federal deficit is shrinking, the stock market is robust, and the Fed is expressing enough faith in the economy that an interest rate bump next year is considered a certainty.

Yet the public remains unconvinced. This is partly because perceptions haven’t caught up to reality.

Triumphant Living

ShepherdCalls_WPYou likely have read or seen on the news the story of seven-year-old Sailor Gutzler who survived the plane crash which killed her father, mother, sister and cousin. Dressed in clothes designed for Florida weather where they visited recently, she climbed from the wreckage of the plane and walked a mile in freezing weather and briar filled undergrowth to get help.

Her story is a mixture of terrible tragedy and

Religious Freedom in 2015

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Much is said these days about religious freedom. Vocal and impassioned advocates from both ends of the spectrum wail quite a lot about freedom of religion or freedom from religion. Freedom in religion seems a better term. Freedom in Christ is the best term. Christ Himself spoke about it.

In the midst of a heated argument with the unbelieving Jewish leaders, Christ turned to the believing
