What Thanksgiving Means to Me

Dw.cdrYesterday I felt so selfish. Of all the blessings for which I should be thankful, I admit being most thankful when the electrician showed up.

Nearly 30 people spend all or part of their work life here at GPCink making all sorts of things happen on deadline. We’ve got various “Plan B” contingencies in place, even duplicate equipment. But yesterday the plate burner suddenly quit, and “Plan B” also failed

Thanksgiving Praise

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The Thanksgiving holiday has a long tradition here in the U.S. The Plymouth Colony observed the first Thanksgiving in 1621. George Washington and other early Presidents directed the country to celebrate Thanksgiving in an on-again, off-again fashion until Abraham Lincoln made it an official annual federal holiday during the Civil War. However, the tradition of expressing thankfulness to God goes back much further than that.

Thanksgiving Complications

ShepherdCalls_WPThanksgiving! The word is something of a paradox. Think about it. More often than not, one is thankful for something they have received; but the word “thanksgiving” advises us to “give.” Human nature generally prefers receiving more than giving. That nature, at the very least, strains our thankfulness.

For some time prior to writing this article, I contemplated my own thankfulness. I asked myself if I could give thanks for

The 9-Month Schedule

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Once upon a time in a faraway school system a wise old wizard dropped himself right in the middle of a faculty meeting. The school had often been visited by alien creatures …food inspectors, fire and safety folks, and an army of workshop leaders who’d teach the teachers how to teach the current governmental mandates, but they’d never been visited by a real

A Confession: I’m Tired of BLTs

Dw.cdrI never thought I’d say this, but I’m tired of BLTs. I write this with some trepidation.

My wife never saw a tomato she didn’t like. She’s a Tomato-head… a tomatoholic. I can’t hold it against her. She’s her father’s daughter — I never met a man more partial to tomatoes (unless corn on the cob was in season).

There are millions of people who spend billions of dollars each

Capitol Perspectives: Nixon’s Misguided Intent

To protect the public from journalists

by Phill Brooks

The day after the November elections, Gov. Jay Nixon provided the most detailed explanation yet as to why his administration blocks reporters from talking with agency directors and experts. His explanation ultimately came down to the argument that it was too harmful to the public for journalists to have that kind of access.

The explanation came at a news conference where

The New ‘Fourth Estate’ Surpassing the Media

by Lee H. Hamilton

Because of its power to influence public affairs, the press has long been known as “the Fourth Estate.” But I think the media may have been displaced. These days, it’s lobbyists who seem to carry the most clout in Washington.

Here’s a case in point. When Congress closed at the beginning of August for its end-of-summer recess, it faced wide-scale derision for having accomplished next to

Good Thinking: Stress

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Anxiety! Tension! Stress! Words that define our society today! James Dobson puts it this way: “…one of the certainties of life is that we will all experience hardship and stress at some point.” Joshua Liebman echoes that thought: “Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full of tension (and stress).” Finally, Danzae Pace reminds us that “Stress is the trash of modern life —

Blessed Blunders

ShepherdCalls_WPThe October/November 2014 issue of Birds and Blooms contains a timely article about migrating birds. Once Canada geese were absent in summer in most of the continental United States. Large flocks of the geese would arrive stateside in late autumn, only to return north the following spring.

Midway into the 20th century, some biologists feared the geese would become extinct. New flocks were bred in captivity and released to join
