The Sky is Falling (and Soon!)

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPGet ready to have a book dropped on your head. The FAA has finally given Amazon permission to test its drone delivery in the United States. Under the Amazonian plan, a human loads the package onto a conveyor belt, which takes it to any awaiting drone, then the device takes off and plops your book, denture powder or antifreeze on your doorstep. We’ve

Are We Dumber Than Rocks?

Dw.cdrA couple of decades ago (has it been 20 years already, really?) we were talking about the Information Highway. Our efforts to initiate websites promoting real estate and auctions kicked off in 1996. Back then, who’d have thought we’d have smart phones with Google maps and all sorts of apps for virtually anything at our fingertips.

Back then I never thought I’d spend so much time behind a keyboard. Or

Love Without Hypocrisy

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Paul spent the first 11 chapters explaining the greatness of Christ in relation to the totality of our salvation. Christ’s great work on the cross justified us. Christ living in us brings about our sanctification. We will one day be glorified in and by Christ. Romans 12 begins with the word “therefore” telling us that because of the greatness of the person and work of Christ

Good Thinking: Seven Words of Jesus

by Dr. Don Kuehle   

Jesus and his disciples have come to Jerusalem for Passover. For three years, Jesus has tried to teach them, by his words and example, what it means to live fully in God’s Kingdom. Thursday finds Jesus and friends gathered in an upper room to share the bread and wine; the words Jesus uses were strange to them, familiar to us. On Friday, Jesus is scourged and

A Tale of Two Churches

ShepherdCalls_WPAt one time, a downtown church accommodated 2,000 plus members each Sunday. Then, in 1979, it closed. That’s the year our family moved to Kansas City. I don’t recall hearing anything about it closing. I suspect it was not sudden, but a gradual transition of community and the ways of “doing” church. The closing of the church not only left a big hole in a once vibrant community; it also

Refusing to Turn

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt was a big grocery day for me. Four small bags. I realize that for some harried mothers only four sacks of groceries would hardly be worth a trip to the store, but Herb and I are light buyers, foolishly spending more fuel to get to the store than on the groceries themselves. Blame it on dementia. By the time I get there

Governing By Crisis Isn’t Governing At All

by Lee H. Hamilton

After Congress came a hair’s breadth from shutting down the Department of Homeland Security a few weeks ago, members of the leadership tried to reassure the American people. “We’re certainly not going to shut down the government or default on the national debt,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Congress, he said, would not lurch from crisis to crisis.

The Name Game

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPWomen get pregnant. It happens and that’s a good thing. That’s how we get more women. A young friend of mine recently found herself in such a situation and she told me that her first task was to start thinking of baby names. I assume that although she called them “baby names” she expected the child to carry the moniker into adulthood. She

Good Thinking: Season of Suffering

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The Season-of-Lent is a Season-of-Suffering! None of us can go through life without some suffering; it’s been that way ever since Adam and Eve. Before the fall, Adam and Eve knew nothing of pain, of failure, of suffering, of death. After the fall, they experienced all these things — and more. Whenever sin separated Adam and Eve from God, Eve experienced pain in giving birth; Adam
