Hey, Let’s Party!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt happens every winter. You stare out the window at the endless parade of snow and cold and ice and wind and you purposely turn off the weather channel when they talk about the forecast for Los Angeles and Miami. That person you married starts looking way too familiar and even your rugs start staring back at you with a dreariness that could

Just Say ‘No’ to Mr. Kroenke

You could see this coming.

I believe “blackmail” is the appropriate word. There’s a power play underway to squeeze more of our tax dollars to benefit the already wealthy.

Billionaire Stan Kroenke, who owns the St. Louis Rams professional football team, announced a partnership to put a privately financed, 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles area if voters there approve.

Dw.cdrThis stadium is part of plans to develop a 238-acre

Looking Forward by Looking Back

by Lee H. Hamilton

With the 114th Congress just underway, the political world is focused intently on the road ahead. Taxes, trade, immigration, climate change, job creation, the Affordable Care Act — there’s a long list of issues and one burning question: whether a Republican Congress and a Democratic President can find common ground.

Yet before we get worked up about what’s to come, we need to take a hard

The Sanctity of Life

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Most humans will concede in theory that life is sacred. However, many people will, under pressure, give in to ignoble desires and proclaim that exceptions ought to be made. God does not allow for that kind of reasoning; He is very strict and firm regarding the absolute sanctity of all human life.

Genesis 1:26 tells us that God planned to create man in His image. The

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.

The Poosey Digest

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI’m not sure what to do with a 53-year-old can of green beans. There’s no expiration date since such labeling wasn’t required in 1962. In fact, I’d forgotten I had them until President Obama announced that we’d be ending our long-standing embargo with Cuba.

Once upon a scary time in our nation’s history, a round little Russian named Nikita sent a few shiploads

Remembering Dizzy

With windchill temperatures dipping below zero, it may seem odd to talk about baseball. But that’s one of the sport’s strengths – the promise of spring while in the grip of fierce winter. Another compelling thing about baseball is its history, woven into the fabric of our society.

Dizzy.

Dw.cdrWith this one word, you immediately travel back decades in time, at least for Cardinals baseball fans.

Dizzy Dean stands among

No One Who Works Full Time Should Be Poor in This Country

by Lee H. Hamilton

Recent economic news has been broadly reassuring. Retail sales are strong, November saw the best job gains in three years, the federal deficit is shrinking, the stock market is robust, and the Fed is expressing enough faith in the economy that an interest rate bump next year is considered a certainty.

Yet the public remains unconvinced. This is partly because perceptions haven’t caught up to reality.

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
