The Thing About Boundaries

There’s something to be said about setting boundaries. Usually, as soon as they’re set, they’re broken. Drive the speed limit at 70 mph on the interstate and count the vehicles that pass you. Sometimes you get away with speeding; sometimes there are fatal consequences.

Once upon a time student councils in many high schools were pestering administrators to allow vending machines in the hallways and commons areas. Eventually, after that

Good Thinking: Abraham, Journey of Faith

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“O Lord, I’m on my journey; O Lord, I’m on my journey;

O Lord, I’m on my journey; On my journey home!”

Life is one looong journey from Birth to Death. Life, for our sakes, is made up of shorter “journeys”; Lent is one of those shorter “journeys” that we take each year to deepen our spiritual life and to bring us closer to where God

Worthwhile Silliness

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI had no idea what I was getting into, but when I’m dealing with Jill that’s often the case. Jill Briggsly ranks toward the top of our small town’s nutty characters and predictability is not her forte. The invitation arrived in the mail: “A surprise birthday! My house, 2 p.m. Tuesday. No gifts.” I made a wild guess that since Jill was hosting

Risks and the Value of Consequences

Every town has a “Killer Hill.”

Just ask around. Start with some 10-year-olds. Not the kind that keep their noses glued to the tube or their fingers on some joystick. Nope, ask the kids that measure a good snow by the sledding. These are the ones that know the thrills of a Killer Hill.

Dw.cdrRisks offer some of life’s best lessons. I wouldn’t trade anything for the spills I endured

Preach the Word

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Second Timothy is a very personal letter from Paul, who at the end of his life, wrote to his young disciple Timothy. Paul gave one last bit of advice and encouragement to Timothy (and all pastors) before he passed from this life.

Paul was a prisoner of Rome at the time, which makes this letter all the more poignant. Paul closed the letter with some personal

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

Poosey Digest: Viral Vinegar

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPVinegar’s a good thing. You can use it to erase ink stains, clean your computer keyboard, scrub your window blinds, piano keys, and remove candle wax. It’s what makes salad dressing pop, puts the zing in barbecue sauce, helps turn cucumbers into pickles, and ketchup would be the poor stepchild of tomato sauce without it. But too much vinegar or vinegar in the

A Bulldog Portrait

It has been argued that this community values longevity over excellence. But some special times the two merge into one. That’s the sum of Rick Lin’s tenure as teacher and coach at Gallatin R-5 Schools.

Dw.cdrSenior Night in the Bulldogs’ gymnasium was special last night. Tradition correctly spotlights senior athletes and cheerleaders and their parents during the last home game of the season. That beat goes on and on, but

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.
