Be Not in the Dark

by Pastor Steve Ellison

We could spend a lifetime studying what the Bible says about God as Light. What I will do here, could not even qualify as scratching the surface.

1 John 1:5-8 states, This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. (NASU)

God is Light. The Bible refers to Jesus

Good Thinking: Why Should I Vote?

by Dr. Don Kuehle

In 1792, Election Day was set for the Tuesday following the first Monday in November. November was selected because the harvest was over and winter had not yet begun. Tuesday was chosen because, if Monday has been chosen, some might have had to travel on Sunday/the Sabbath.

“He cast his vote, distrusting all the elected — but not the law.” So said Karl Shapiro.

I don’t

‘Tis the Season

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It seems a shame. Right here in the most beautiful of seasons we’re annually slapped in the face with ugliness. There’s surely no season in the Midwest that rivals autumn for its cornucopia of colors, flavors, fun, and festivals. Springtime is often touted as the most glorious of seasons but when you live in Tornado Alley or your April ritual consists of sandbagging

Viewing Political Corruption More Broadly

by Lee H. Hamilton

Earlier this year, veteran political writer Thomas Edsall reported an eyebrow-raising fact about Americans’ views toward government. Polling by Gallup, he noted, found that the proportion of Americans who believed that corruption is “widespread” in government had risen from 59% in 2006 to 79% in 2013. “In other words,” Edsall wrote, “we were cynical already, but now we’re in overdrive.”

Capitol Perspectives: Political Transformations

by Phill Brooks

During my professional career, I have experienced two major political transformations that fundamentally changed our society. Recent developments in Missouri make me wonder if we’re experiencing a similar transformation today involving gay rights — or, at least, gay marriages in Missouri.

The two political transformations in my time involved the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement. I’ve been thinking about those two changes as I’ve watched

A Bank Robbery and Bootleg Hooch

Dw.cdrThere’s more to the story about the building located at the 4-way stop, owned by Spence and Judy Elbert, now undergoing a facelift. Local historian David Stark reminded me of the bank robbery that occurred there during the Roarin’ Twenties.

On Nov. 23, 1922, six armed men robbed the First National Bank of Gallatin, then located on the south side of the square. It was a sensational incident involving a

Lazarus Takes a Stand

ShepherdCalls_WPHe’s just a black and brown mutt, who was struck by a car and seriously injured. His owner was moving and could no longer care for him, so he dropped him off at a local veterinary clinic. When all efforts to find a rescuer failed, the clinic administered a lethal injection and left him for dead in a cage. When the clinic staff returned the following morning, he was standing,

Be Not Hungry

by Pastor Steve Ellison

John 6 opens with Jesus miraculously feeding 5,000 men plus women and children. This was an effort to teach his disciples a valuable lesson.

John 6 continues with a testing of the disciples to see if they understood the teaching. John does not tell us that the episode on the stormy sea was a test but Mark 6:50-52 does, But immediately He spoke with them and

Times (and Games) Have Changed

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I miss charades. No, the world will not come crashing to a halt at the loss of this age-old parlor game, and I will probably live happily ever after if I never play it again, but I fear that the loss signals something a bit deeper.

If you’ve spent the last hundred years in a cave and aren’t familiar with the pastime, charades
