Celebrating Jesus’ Birthday

ShepherdCalls_WPA short time from now, the world will celebrate Jesus’ birthday again. This is not the first celebration of His birth. No, His birthday has come and gone more than 2,000 times. Some people make this celebration short, simple, and sincere. In the United States, we make the celebration long and bright. We begin our revelry weeks before Christmas — we sing, we shop, we decorate our houses inside and

Christmas Behind the Scenes

ShepherdCalls_WPSome shepherds were just doing their thing — watching the sheep — when an angel interrupted to tell them Christmas had arrived, “The Savior is born. Christ has arrived in the world.” The shepherds hurried to Bethlehem to check it out.

The historian Luke tells us the shepherds were watching their flocks “by night,” presumably to protect them from wild animals, thieves, or simply keep them from wandering off, as

A Name Above Every Name

ShepherdCalls_WPMany years ago, our family decided to get a pet. I was not thrilled by the idea, but my wife and four children “convinced” me. My objection was overruled, but still we had a problem. Some of the children wanted a dog, and some wanted a cat. Even though I was still in the objective case, my wife lovingly consulted me about this problem. “What should we do?” she asked.

Take a Walk

ShepherdCalls_WPJournalist Paul Salopek is making a trek that covers the route humans followed to settle earth thousands of years ago. Beginning in Ethiopia, the assumed beginning point of human civilization, he will travel through all the continents and conclude the journey in South America’s Tierra del Fuego, Chile. His journey totals 21,000 miles, and he is traveling on foot. He is walking! His reasoning is “the earliest humans walked this

Focus on a Blessing

ShepherdCalls_WPThe sign in front of the church reads, “Do the math. Count your blessings.” That’s good advice. On some occasion, you may have been advised to make a list of all the things for which you are thankful. We even have a hymn instructing us to do so, “Count your many blessings, name them one by one.” Unfortunately we seldom sing that hymn except at Thanksgiving. For most of us,

Big

ShepherdCalls_WPAstronomers using NASA data have calculated that in our galaxy alone there are more than eight billion stars with earth size planets in the “inhabitable temperature zone,” not too hot nor too cold for life. Eight billion stars is more than one star for every person on earth. This figure is almost certainly low because scientists were only looking at “sun-like” stars, and they are not the common ones.

Tiny Bits of Life

ShepherdCalls_WPHe was hitching a ride on Highway 63 between LaPlata and Kirksville. Years ago, I always picked up hitchhikers. When I was younger, I hitchhiked a lot; so I am sympathetic. In recent years, I have grown more cautious and seldom stop. This time God seemed to tell me to pick this guy up. I did. It took me a while to get the car stopped. I noticed he didn’t

Who Can Afford Heaven?

ShepherdCalls_WPA woman returned home to find a body in a body bag on her porch. The family had left their loved one at the funeral home for cremation, but no one left the money to pay for the procedure. Since no one paid, the funeral home put the body in a bag and returned it. When asked about it, the daughter of the deceased reported her father wished to be

What’s Inside

ShepherdCalls_WPThe Reader’s Digest reports the Statue of Liberty is cleaner inside than out. (October 2013) The curators have not cleaned her exterior for years because frequent cleaning hastens her deterioration. However, the inside has been scrubbed so often the cleaners have leaked through and stained her cheeks.

Clean on the inside; dirty on the outside. “Ain’t that a hoot?” It’s a rarity. Humankind seems to prefer outward attractiveness above inner
