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.

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

If Bagworms Aren’t Your Bag

by Tim Baker, Regional Horticulturist

I recently received my first call of the year about bagworms, so I thought it might be a good idea to remind everyone that in a few months it will be time to spray for them.

Bagworms can occur on a variety of trees and shrubs. These infestations range from minor to severe. A severe case of bagworms on a small tree can easily defoliate
