Anger Issues

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The first half of Colossians identifies Christ as preeminent in all things. The second half of Colossians gives us a test so that we can objectively measure how well we understand that Christ is preeminent in all things.

The first question on the test, which we looked at last week, is found in Colossians 3:5-7 and deals with every kind of sexual immorality. If there is

Democracy’s Dues

ShepherdCalls_WPThere must surely be a better way. Having no better way to propose, I grow tense thinking about the months of political wrangling ahead – the speeches, the innuendo, the half-truths, untruths, the debates, and the spin makes my head ache.

Like I said, I have no better way to propose; however, I do have an observation that might improve our perspective. Make the campaign window smaller, briefer. The presidential

Good Thinking: Dancing ‘Round the Maypole

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Oh, the merry month of May! Come and dance with me around the Maypole! Celebrate the gift of life! Rejoice in the gift of this new day, a new month!

No! How can I be merry when there is so much sadness and sorrow in this world? How can I sing and dance when the noise of anger and hatred drown out my voice, and fear

Just Tryin’ to Get Back Home

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPCertain occupations fascinate me… the guy who rakes the pitcher’s mound between innings at Kauffman Stadium, coffee testers for Starbucks, window washers on cruise ships, the lady who calls you to ask why you missed your physical therapy appointment. These jobs may not be all that exciting to those who hold them, but they each hold a certain curious element, something out of

Time to Start Doing Homework

Dw.cdrAnnouncements by candidates for president captured the news cycle in major media last week, as you know. Wouldn’t it be something if we voters ignored the drama of the upcoming horse race and all the hype for ruling by dynasty (there are candidates with names other than Clinton and Bush, you know) and, instead, use positions on issues as the measure?

I don’t know about you, but I want to

PRNDL

The PRNDL on my vehicle is broken. You may not know what an automotive PRNDL is but almost every car has one. It’s that little gauge just over your steering wheel, usually a slightly arched shape, that plainly reads PRNDL. It could easily be a Hebrew word for the Hebrew language usually omits the vowels. This is very confusing to the reader who must select his/her own vowels. However, it

The First Test

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The first half of Colossians tells how Christ is preeminent in all things: creation, redemption, the church, wisdom and knowledge, even life itself. This is an important doctrine. If Christ is first and last in all of these things, then surely He must be preeminent in my life.

The second half of Colossians provides a test to let us know if we have in fact made

Hard to Fight When You Hug

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Chicken in the breadpan pickin’ out dough

One more girl and on you go.

Don’t be fast and don’t be slow,

Chicken in the breadpan pickin’ out dough.

And so went the old square dance as I’d watch my folks parade around the old Legion Hall on Saturday nights, petticoats flying and laughter fending off the chill of a Midwest winter. There was

Daviess County Connection More than Trivial

Do you like trivia?

My latest smart phone addiction is something called Trivia Crack. The app is aptly named; six categories of short questions tease and taunt me to try just one more time whenever I miss my guess. Thus, I can waste time while under the guise of learning tidbits about all sorts of stuff that essentially don’t matter.

But trivia gets you thinking. Sometimes takes you to unexpected
