Oops!

ShepherdCalls_WPIt was Sunday morning. I awoke early and got ready for church. When I went to put on my shoes, they were muddy from wearing them in the recent snows and mud. Reluctantly (I’m not fond of shining shoes), I got out my trusted shoeshine kit and cleaned them up.

Realizing time was passing fast; I hurriedly stopped in the kitchen to get another cup of coffee. Looking out the

The Right Way to Do It

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It takes very little these days for Herb to get himself into a royal snit and last week he was snitting full-bore as we stood in the checkout lane of the grocery store. The lady ahead of him had her hands full, both of groceries and children, and a goodly-sized line had backed up behind her as she carefully laid out a row

City of Gallatin’s Public Meeting

Dw.cdrIt takes money to make money. Do you believe this adage?

On Tuesday, April 8, Gallatin voters will decide whether to actually put money to that truth. The vote will be on a half-cent sales tax. If it passes, a list of much needed improvements can be attempted, each of which promises to save us significant money whenever completed. If the vote  fails, then not much on the list will

Good Thinking: We Can Count on God’s Peace

by Dr. Don Keuhle

We live in a war-weary world. We live in a world where a robbery and a shooting are considered “normal.” In too many communities if there is not a killing or a robbery, or both, it’s not a normal day. Violence and abuse make the headlines every evening. Chaos reigns supreme. People are  anxious, stressed-out, tense. Everyone is searching for some relief, yearning for some degree

Commissioned!

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The Bible speaks a lot about fruit bearing. Adam and Eve were told to be fruitful and multiply. Noah was told be fruitful and multiply. Jacob was told to be fruitful and multiply. God told the prophet Jeremiah that He would send the Righteous Branch so that God’s people would be fruitful and multiply.

The gospels mention fruit 38 times, three by John the Baptist and

The Shepherd Calls: A Little Snow

ShepherdCalls_WPThe morning snow covered the ground like wet tissue paper. It was just a dusting; you could see snow, but it did not cover much. The fallen limbs, the mole mounds, the jonquils jutting early from the earth, even the stepping-stones were clearly visible through the transparent whiteness. It was a snow such as this that caused Calvin, of “Calvin and Hobbs” comics, to complain, “Getting a little snow is

Fixing Congress

by Lee H. Hamilton

These are hard times for Congress. Its approval ratings have seen a bump from their historic lows of a few months ago, but it’s a small one. Our representative democracy’s keystone political institution is widely derided as ineffective, unproductive, irrelevant, and sadly out of touch.

It is no coincidence that this comes while Congress has developed a taste for so-called “unorthodox lawmaking,” wandering far outside its

Off the Editor’s Spike

Dw.cdrYou are what you eat. Or, as Debbie Sweatman and other champions of the upcoming family Literacy Night at Searcy R-5 Elementary would say, you are what you read.

Cold winter nights make nibbling on junk food all too comforting — novels, several delicious mysteries, a reread of nearly all of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Sherlock Holmes tales, and a variety of books about my favorite subject, the Civil War.

Where’s the Party?

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m ready for a party. Oh, I know that living in this most blessed of nations it’s hard to say that we deserve anything, but dog-gone it, after living through a winter like we’ve just endured I think we’ve earned the right to treat ourselves to a shindig. Print up the t-shirts proclaiming, “I survived the winter of 2014!” Break out the champagne
