Footprints of Kindness

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Wanda McBride is somewhat of a nut. No, she’s delightfully loony. While other extroverts march to a different drummer, Wanda’s spent her life listening to an entirely different band. In short, she’s a bodacious delight, always doing the unexpected, bringing joy into the room each time she enters.

That’s why her vacation plans are never a surprise. Last summer she packed up her

A Sesquicentennial Proposal

Dw.cdrWhat do you do for something 150 years old?

This has been on the back burner for some time now, knowing this week was coming. The Gallatin North Missourian will embark on its 150th year after printing this week’s edition. And before you’re finished reading this column, we’ll float a balloon about an idea on a way to celebrate.

Whew, 150 years …how’d we get here?

The countdown on

Opportunities Missed

ShepherdCalls_WPAt our request, our guest went to the piano and played for us. He played and sang a song he had written himself. It was beautiful. From where I was seated, I could watch his hands move nimbly across the keys; and for the umpteenth time, I wished I could play the piano.

What makes my wish more painful is that I took piano lessons for nearly seven years, but

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
