Choices of Consequence

Last fall my wife and I received flu shots. Sometime later while talking to my daughter on the phone, I mentioned we had been to the doctor to get flu shots. A young, invincible, 40-year-old, she launched into a parental lecture about how the flu shots are of no value and she never gets them. I wondered why I mentioned it. We’ve had this conversation before. Well, this time she

Venerable Valentine Visitors

It would soon be Valentine’s Day. The angels gathered around God’s throne in heaven. They needed permission to visit earth on errands of passion and tenderness.

The Healing Angel wanted to visit a couple who was fighting. “They’ve inflicted many wounds,” he said. “If I could heal their hurts, they would realize they still love one another.”

ShepherdCalls_WP“Let there be healing in your wings,” God said. The seraph quickly departed.

Earth’s Glory

“The earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness, the world and those that dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1) With those words in mind and believing that God can speak to us through creation, I took a two-mile walk. .The sun was shining vibrantly, warming me and the earth. On the other hand, the wind was blowing briskly, invigorating my steps and reminding me that creation has variety.

A Matter of Perspective

ShepherdCalls_WPIt’s a beautiful story. It’s more than a story. It’s fact. Peggy Wallace Kennedy, daughter of the late governor George Wallace, and Donzaleigh Abernathy, daughter of the late civil rights activist Ralph David Abernathy, each witnessed the Selma Alabama civil rights march 50 years ago and emerged with the same opinions.

Jesus’ words, “Out of the mouth of babes” (Matthew 21:16) comes to mind as I think about this story.

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.

ShepherdCalls_WPNot to downplay our current concerns; but it may help if we remember there have been bad days before. Sadness filled our house for days and months following

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

Words from a Shepherd

A simple shepherd — that’s all I am,ShepherdCalls_WP

With shepherd friends resting

on the ground thinking.

Shepherding is sometimes boring.

The hills are rocky, the grass is short,

The streams are scattered far apart.

Perhaps this life is for those not smart.

 

Some shepherd friends have turned away.

They asked me if I plan to stay—

Eating poorly, chasing sheep.

They say the best shepherding

Is when you sleep.

Season to Be Jolly

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

ShepherdCalls_WP“‘Tis the season to be jolly.” At least, that is what the song says. Truthfully, however, not everyone is jolly at Christmas. Admittedly, all the world should rejoice. Christmas is the birthday of Jesus our Savior. Nevertheless, things are not always as they should be. Perhaps we can understand an unbeliever would lack joy at Christmas. For them, it is just an over-commercialized holiday.

Unfortunately,

Light a Candle for the Shepherds

ShepherdCalls_WPThe angels were celestially shocked when they heard God would send His son Jesus to earth. They were momentarily mortified when they learned He would be born in a barn. But, they were divinely delighted when they were instructed to go to earth and announce His birth.

However, they fell into an angelic argument over who would be the first to receive the divine disclosure. The Pompous Angel said a
