The Shepherd’s Call: Relationships

ShepherdCalls_WPby Dr. Wade Paris

“I just hit your car,” she said.
“What?” I said sleepily. I’d been sound asleep.
“I hit your car,” she repeated. It was my daughter Susan. We were spending the night at her house. They live on a cul de sac, and the only place to park was in their driveway. She raised her garage door electronically, then backed out without looking. She does it every

The Shepherd Calls: In the Pits

ShepherdCalls_WPJeffrey Bush was sleeping in his home near Tampa, FL, when a sinkhole beneath the house opened up and swallowed him. Today, all efforts to rescue him have been abandoned. He is presumed dead, and digging in the sinkhole is considered too dangerous. Other houses in the neighborhood have been evacuated fearing they might suffer a similar fate. It is an unusual and horrifying tragedy.

In the small village where

The Shepherd Calls: A Little Knowledge

ShepherdCalls_WPHenry Morgan was a star on the old television show, “What’s My Line?” He never impressed me as being religious. If anything, he seemed irreligious. Still, on one of the shows he made a comment about God I can’t forget. The East coast was buried in a blizzard that ruined President Kennedy’s inaugural celebration. Everyone, both stars and guests, commented on the inconvenience of the weather. Morgan brought all the

The Shepherd Calls: Valentine’s Value

ShepherdCalls_WPOn a south sea island there lived a shy girl named Sy, the fifth daughter and last child of a family who wanted a son. She grew up being told she was a disappointment. The family needed a son. As you might expect, she was disappointed in herself and lacked self-esteem.

In her culture, men purchased wives from the fathers. Suitors courted the girls; and when they found one they

Shepherd Calls: On Being Poor

ShepherdCalls_WPSunday’s newspaper had a multi-page article about poverty.  It’s not a new problem; even Jesus noted the poor have always been around. Still, in this country of plenty something must be wrong when thousands live in poverty and go to bed hungry.

The Bible has much to say about the poor, especially helping them. There are so many verses I will not list all the references; but read the following

The Shepherd Calls: More Christmas complaints

It is common for people to complain about Christmas. Even today, I read where a much-respected Christian leader said, “Christmas has forgotten Christ. For many people, celebrating Christmas has little to do with Jesus’ birth.” I must agree with that; but to tell the truth, for many people life itself has nothing to do with Jesus.

I have always been a lover of Christmas. I agree with Andy Williams, “It’s

The Shepherd Calls: Big talk

An international team of scientists has confirmed what a Korean zoo has been saying for years. The zoo’s 5.5-ton elephant, Koshik, can talk. He has a vocabulary of five Korean words. The 22-year-old Asian elephant was lonely and bonded with his trainers, who would often sleep in the same area with Koshik. The pachyderm tucks his trunk in his mouth and reproduces the words by modulating sound. Vocal imitations by

The Shepherd Calls: Here’s lookin’ at ya’!

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

If you are looking for attention, perhaps the best route is to enter politics. On the front page of today’s newspaper, there are two different stories of politicians who have drawn attention — albeit unwanted. One misspoke about criminal assault; and another went swimming, some say indiscriminately.

Being watched is nothing new. When I was a boy, I bought a pack of cigarettes at the
