Are We a Target in the Crosshairs?

I am about to share some thoughts on issues beyond my full comprehension (and probably beyond my capacity to ever completely understand). But this much I know: the federal Clean Power Plan announced this week might become shocking news someday for every electricity user in Gallatin, MO.

By that I mean hang on to your wallet.

The God of Peace

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Someone unknown to me several years ago wrote the following: “In describing one of the new movies of the day, a critic wrote, ‘The plot moves rapidly down the sewer.’ It would not be so damaging to those who watch such trash if the mind could be equipped, like your kitchen sink, with a garbage disposal. Then you could flush away all the filth and be

What is God Like?

Sit down and write a page about what you think God is like. Fill in as many details as you can. You can’t write a whole page? Okay, write a paragraph. Be specific. I can tell you with certainty; God is not like that.

ShepherdCalls_WPEven with the benefit of the Bible, we tend to think of God in terms which suit us. For example, when we read a scripture passage

The Days of Lawlessness

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I miss the desperados, the days of lawlessness.

PooseyDigest_WPWhen I was a youngster living in a farm community the legal rights were fudged a bit because of pure necessity when it came to driving. While the law books said that a young man or woman had to be 16 years old, the fact was that if your legs were long enough to reach

God… In Everything

When I say, “God is in it all” or “God is in everything,” please don’t take me to be a pantheist. I do not think everything is God. However, I do believe God is in everything. I picture our world as a huge sponge filled with the presence of God. Nevertheless, that conviction can be troubling. Here is an example.

The Next Hillside

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI can imagine the scene. Og the caveman wakes in his cave, stretches, belches up a bit of the mastodon nuggets from the night before, looks over and sees his wife Ogala still sleeping by the fire, then walks out into the cool Pleistocene morning. He looks across at the next hillside. Ever since he was a little Neanderthal he had been curious

Some Things That I Like

Writing this column is, at times, therapeutic. All this rainfall is getting me down. So, this is a deliberate attempt to not look at the rain gauge half full, but half empty.

I like bug bites. If I have no bug bites, then I’ve been spending too much time in the office behind the computer. A bug bite means I’ve been outside working on something or reading the newspaper out

ShepherdCalls_WPSeventy plus years ago, Dr. Ruth Westheimer was a ten year old girl on a Kindertransport, a train that carried Jewish children to safety from Nazi Germany. She was allowed to take only one toy with her as she fled Frankfurt. She took a favorite doll. On the train she met a younger child, who was understandably crying. Painfully Ruth gave the young girl her doll. “She needed it more

The Charcoal Fire

by Pastor Steve Ellison

A couple of weeks ago, I had a phone conversation with an old friend whom I had not heard from in about 10 years. He had engaged in a time of repentance and felt like God had forgiven him. However, he was struggling with forgiving himself. This is a perplexing problem for almost every Christian.

I suppose there is not a one of us who has
