Resolved in 2015

by Pastor Steve Ellison

January 1 is a day like any other day. There is really nothing special about it to set it apart from any other day of the year. However, it does provide a reminder to evaluate our lives and resolve to make beneficial changes.

One area of life comes to mind in which most of us are in desperate need of resolve. I am amazed at the

Before Making Up Your Mind…

Dw.cdrBefore you make up your mind about the City of Gallatin taking control of the cupola and adjacent building on the east side of the business square, there is much to consider.

The catalyst for ownership change was private business.

The idea for city controlling the cupola building originated with Dean Hales. But, really, every owner with property on the square has a vested interest. When buildings are abandoned, the

Words from a Shepherd

A simple shepherd — that’s all I am,ShepherdCalls_WP

With shepherd friends resting

on the ground thinking.

Shepherding is sometimes boring.

The hills are rocky, the grass is short,

The streams are scattered far apart.

Perhaps this life is for those not smart.

 

Some shepherd friends have turned away.

They asked me if I plan to stay—

Eating poorly, chasing sheep.

They say the best shepherding

Is when you sleep.

Merry Christmas, God With Us

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Heaven is being in the presence of God, nothing more and nothing less. All the other descriptions of heaven are simply window dressing. Nothing we count as good would satisfy us in eternity unless we are in the presence of God. Nothing we count as bad can spoil eternity if we have the presence of God.

The clear message of the Bible is that God is

If Every Food Had a Label…

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m just taking a wild stab here, but I’m guessing that if you’re so dumb that you buy a huge bucket of buttered popcorn at the movie theatre, slathered with salt and fortified with every fat in the civilized world, and if you don’t realize this will hurt your diet, you’re also so dumb that you can’t read a label on the box

An Asset or Albatross?

Some talk around town has City Hall taking the lead in determining the future of the cupola building on North Main. That’s good!

City Hall taking charge of this problem property makes sense. We’ve got good people serving on the board. We should encourage our aldermen to take a leadership role to coordinate what’s to happen. With the city’s commitment comes stability and an opportunity for individuals and community groups

Capitol Perspectives: Deadly, Devious and Disabling Details

by Phill Brooks

In the weeks before the 2015 legislative session, two issues have emerged as dominant — Ferguson and government ethics. Yet, I wonder whether conflicts over details will be fatal.

For years, I’ve seen well-intentioned efforts by Missouri public officials crash on the shores of details. Think back to last year when legislative leaders expressed pride at pulling together a complex compromise on unaccredited school districts. There was

Good Thinking: How Far to Bethlehem?

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Every year, thousands of people travel to Bethlehem to be a part of the Christmas crowd. They think, perhaps, that being in the very place where the Christ-child was born will make Him more real to them. Every year, millions of people do not get to travel to Bethlehem. Most of us have never stood with the faithful around the manger-bed. Most of us have

Season to Be Jolly

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

ShepherdCalls_WP“‘Tis the season to be jolly.” At least, that is what the song says. Truthfully, however, not everyone is jolly at Christmas. Admittedly, all the world should rejoice. Christmas is the birthday of Jesus our Savior. Nevertheless, things are not always as they should be. Perhaps we can understand an unbeliever would lack joy at Christmas. For them, it is just an over-commercialized holiday.

Unfortunately,
