Letter to a Little One

Dear Little Emmy,

Welcome to the world! Your arrival Friday came earlier than the doctors predicted. I like that. Perhaps you already know not to depend on the “experts” for such things, especially those things that are really just between you and God. We’re experts at making noise here. Never allow anything here on this earth to get between you and your Maker.

Despite the birth of your big brother

The Glory of the Lord

ShepherdCalls_WPI was on my knees, but I was not there to pray. I was on my knees in the garden transplanting vines I hope will eventually cover ugly places in the lawn. The joy of the moment brought to mind the scripture that says, “And the glory of the Lord shone round about them.” (Luke 2:9) Those words were spoken of the shepherds when the angels announced Jesus’ birth to

Benefits of Evangelism

by Pastor Steve Ellison

I just returned from a week of sharing the gospel at the motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D. I saw a lot of indecency and profanity but I was pleasantly surprised at the general lack of animosity. I cannot say that the response was generally positive because disdain was the most common response. However, only a few people were downright antagonistic.

I was impressed by the lack

Good Thinking: Back-to-School Days

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“School days, school day, good old Golden Rule days;

Readin’ and Writin’ and ‘Rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick.”

School days have always been important days. Even for those of us who remember the “good old days,” school shaped our lives. We recall when life was less complicated. We attended a one-room school. Discipline was strict; the hickory stick was used by the

Why Government Fails, and What We Should Do About It

by Lee H. Hamilton

As election season approaches, I’ve been pondering a crucial issue about the role of government in our society. It’s that our government often fails — and that we need to address this. What’s odd is that while the frequent failures in government’s performance are very much on ordinary people’s minds, politicians don’t talk much about fixing them.

True, you might hear a few words about the

Pondering the ‘Poor Doors’

Dw.cdrI choose not to worry about getting rich personally. That’s not going to happen and, thus, is such a waste of time. But sometimes I’ll read something that makes me realize how some of this world is so very much different from realities found here.

Have you heard about “The Poor Door?”

Evidently, officials in New York City signed off on a building plan that allows a new luxury high-rise

Life Stacks Up

ShepherdCalls_WPOn a shelf beside my desk, I have a “stack of stuff.” Mail, magazines, and other “stuff” arrives more rapidly than I can process it. Each day I search through the new arrivals. Much of it I can throw away quickly. Some demands immediate attention — bills and personal correspondence; but then there are the “I don’t know what to do with this” items. Often I put those in my

Curious or Converted?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

One day after the writing of this column, I will be heading to Sturgis, S.D., for a week. I will be helping to staff an evangelism tent at the motorcycle rally. We will be encouraging people to consider the most important question ever posed to a human being. Every other issue pales, really fades to total insignificance, in the light of this question.

This is a

A Remarkable Woman

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Let me tell you about a remarkable woman. Her name is Stephanie and her age hovers between 50 and 70, depending upon the time of the day, the weather, and her mood. She married young, had a couple of kids, then divorced her husband. In her words, “He was okay …for awhile. But then all he wanted to do was sit around, said
