The Writing on the Wall

Dw.cdrIt bothers me that so many of our public schools no longer teach cursive writing. I guess that’s because I relate back to the times of “B.C.” …before computers.

It’s true few of us handwrite very much of anything anymore; I know I don’t. I wouldn’t want to write this weekly column without the speed and convenience of a computer. And if you were forced to decipher my thoughts from

Good Thinking: Proud to Be an American

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Some things come my way that are soooo good that I have to pass them on! This is one of them.

Some time ago, a notice appeared in a Pakistani newspaper: “A reward will be given to anyone who kills an American, any American.” An Australian dentist, living in Pakistan, wrote this reply: “I’m writing this to let everyone know what an American is, so you

There’s Something About a Dreamer

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Let’s hear it for the boy who’s so busy looking for four-leaf clovers that he misses the ball that’s hit to him in right field. Let’s hear it for the girl who completely misses what her math teacher was saying about Euclidean geometry because she was too fascinated with the patterns her teacher’s prism earrings were making on the far wall. Three cheers

Hobby Lobby: Much to Ponder

Dw.cdrThe nearest Hobby Lobby is at St. Joseph, almost 50 miles away. There are 11 stores within a 100 miles of Gallatin. But that distance melted away when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Obama administration’s mandate to require private companies to provide contraceptives to employees.

Have you paid attention to the Hobby Lobby controversy and recent Supreme Court decision? How close to home does the Supreme Court ruling

Good Thinking: Just Call Me ‘Mr. Ambassador’

by Dr. Don Kuehle

What do James Cuningham, Larry Palmer, Denise Bauer, Carlos Moreno, and Daniel Shields have in common? They’re all U. S. Ambassadors to other countries. They are citizens of this country, living and working in another country. As ambassadors, the men and women represent the best interests of the United States.

What do the people in a Christian congregation have in common? They are all God’s Ambassadors

Nothing is Free

ShepherdCalls_WPIt was dinnertime. My wife and I sat at the table watching all the activity behind our house. Three deer were by the salt block and more down in the woods. Several turkeys wandered around the yard scavenging. The hummingbirds were busily eating at the feeders and buzzing one another.

Woodpeckers and tufted titmice were making regular visits to the peanut feeder. Cardinals, blue jays, and rose-breasted grosbeaks were eating

What is Faith?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Hebrews 11:6 is about as straight forward as a verse could possibly be, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” (NASU)

If any human wants to please the Creator, he will have to exercise faith in the Creator. The created human will have

Will There Be a Fall Festival in Gallatin This Year?

Dw.cdrProbably not, unless someone steps forward immediately and in a commanding manner. Time to organize properly grows short. And perhaps too many people simply don’t care anymore.

The first modern Chautauqua stage in Gallatin was set in 1986. The festival was an expansion of the popular Lions Club Flea Market. The previous year over 130 booths had lined the square on Flea Market Sunday; the first Chautauqua added 50 more.

Good Thinking: Dealing with Doubt

by Dr. Don Kuehle

It was doubt that got us all into trouble! Adam and Eve resided in Paradise; they had it all. They had more than enough food and shelter; they received more than enough love and acceptance from God; they enjoyed the satisfaction of working alongside God; they were surrounded by the protective limits God had set. But Satan planted doubts in their minds…

Eve: “God said that
