Good Thinking: Babel and Pentecost

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Rudyard Kipling wrote:

“All good people say; and all god people agree that

All nice people, like us, are WE — And everyone else is THEY.”

We are a divided people. Separated by national boundaries, limited loyalties, and by barriers of status, economics, education gender, age, and language. We have learned to hate those who are not like “us.” We are suspicious of “them.” Life is

Praying for the Saints

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Colossians 1:9-12 is one of the four “Prison Prayers of Paul.” The other three are found in Ephesians 1, Ephesians 3, and Philippians 1. They are so named because Paul wrote them while he was in Roman custody. It is quite likely that he was chained to a Roman guard while he wrote.

Studying these prayers can be a very beneficial exercise. Modeling your prayers after

Alfie’s Still Up There

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Alfie Rodhaver climbed up into a tree yesterday and he says he has no intention of coming down. I looked out my window this morning and he’s still there. Alfie’s wife Lora said that yesterday morning he filled a thermos with coffee, put the newspaper under his arm and climbed up into the soft maple in front of their house. His last words,

Capitol Perspectives: Mixed Legislative Record for Missouri’s Governor

Much of the attention of this legislative session has focused on Gov. Jay Nixon’s failed efforts for Medicaid expansion. But there is another side to the story. Despite an overwhelming Republican majority in both the House and Senate, Nixon has scored some major victories.

On the last day of the session, the legislature sent him a bill to establish an early childhood program in public schools that would start before

Good Thinking: Decoration Day

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Decoration Day, May 30 – a day set aside to “decorate” the graves of fallen heroes with flowers. I remember, as a child, observing Decoration Day. I would go with my mother and grand-mother to visit the cemeteries where our relatives were buries; there, we would place fresh-cut flowers on their graves. We would also place flowers on the graves of those men & women, whom

Spiritual Neglect

ShepherdCalls_WPThe conversation was not directed toward me; but I overheard it and cringed inwardly. The group was actually bragging about not going to church.

“I haven’t been to church in so long . . .”

“Me either, I haven’t even met our new pastor/priest.”

I listened carefully, hoping it was more a confession than a boast; but it did not seem so. The speakers seemed to be swaggering in a

To the Graduates

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Dear Graduate,

You may be short of time, short of cash, and running out of sanity this week, but I would wager that you don’t lack for advice. Your parents, teachers, and anyone else over 21 has no doubt given you a congratulatory pat on the back then slipped in their two cents on how to be happy, successful, and how to avoid

Get Ready for More of the Same

by Lee H. Hamilton

I felt a brief surge of hope about Congress a few weeks ago. It was returning from Easter recess, and Capitol Hill was filled with talk about immigration reform, a minimum-wage bill, a spending bill to keep the government operating, and maybe even funding for transportation infrastructure. But, as I said, it was brief.

That’s because the talk turned out to be just that. Immigration reform

Growing Grass in the Shade

by Tim Baker, Extension Professional and Horticulture Specialist

One common question I frequently receive concerns how to establish and maintain a lawn in the shade. While we like to have shade trees in the yard, it’s sometimes difficult to persuade grass that it needs to grow underneath those spreading branches. Grass prefers to grow in full sunlight, and the reduced sunlight and the increased competition for water and nutrients makes
