Sensitivity

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

Instruments of Destruction

He was my great, great nephew, my niece’s grandson. Sadly, he is gone at 19. He proved, unfortunately, what most of us know – guns are to children (especially boys) what flowers are to bees. They will get together.

The weapon was “put away,” locked in a safe at home. The key was hidden in his grandmother’s purse, but he found the key and the gun. He called his grandmother

Family

It was my birthday, a big one. My wife decided I needed a birthday party. Perhaps she assumed I would not be available for many more. Lovingly, she set the wheels in motion. At first, she planned it to be a surprise; but we have difficulty keeping secrets from each other, and soon the “cat was out of the bag.”

ShepherdCalls_WPWhen she realized I was on to her, she began

Independence Day 2015

In a few days, we will again celebrate the birthday of our nation. The United States of America will be 239 years old. As you might expect, our great country has experienced many ups and downs. As soon as we solve one problem, another one rises. That’s life. It happens to nations and individuals alike. Repetitive national crises cause some to lose hope. As we prepare to celebrate our national

Our Father

Orey Steinman was just “messing around” with his computer when he typed his unusual name into an internet search engine. What he learned was shocking. He saw a childhood picture of himself on a website for missing children. The 17 year old learned that his mother had taken him from Canada 14 years ago in the midst of a custody battle.

ShepherdCalls_WPThe whole experience conjures up many thoughts. Was the

The Convenience of Unbelief

Stories abound about confrontations between Christians and unbelievers. The most common setting for these accounts is the university campus. Usually, an atheist professor is presented as taunting young believers in class. That scenario of young learners and authoritarian instructors conjures up deep emotions among the saints.

ShepherdCalls_WPNo doubt, some of those stories are true; but I suspect many of them are fiction, products of fearful faithful who want desperately for

Is the Grass Greener?

Originally, the proverb said, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” The observation likely stems from watching cattle stretch across the fence to nibble a blade of grass while standing in a lush green pasture. Today, the axiom is often shortened simply to, “The grass is always greener…” and can refer to any assumed better opportunity somewhere else.

ShepherdCalls_WPWhat brought this adage to mind was

The Sky is Not Falling

The most recent Reader’s Digest contains a report of a study done by Steven Pinker and Andrew Mack on slate.com. According to their conclusions based on analysis of current available data, the sky is not falling or to use their words, “The world is not falling apart.”

ShepherdCalls_WPIt is easy to become paranoid by reading the headlines. “News is about things that happen, not things that don’t happen.” For example,

To Be or Not to be a Church

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

The Associated Press recently reported a story about a swingers club converting into a church. A group in downtown Nashville, reportedly a swingers group, known as the Social Club sold its building and purchased a new one several miles away. In some ways, the new location is suitable; it is isolated at the end of a dead end street. However, it is near Good Pasture
