  • Don’t play Go-Fish with Salvation

    I have always been competitive, and I hate losing – ask my kids.
    I understand why my children now gloat after beating me at cards, board games, etc. Not so with the grandkids, I keep them honest, but I don’t play cut throat.
    Recently, while playing Go Fish, the 6-year-old, unaccustomed to playing three handed, constantly asked her brother for cards.
    They both quickly caught on when they didn’t get a card they asked for and I would request it from them.

  • Who is worthy enough?

    A few weeks ago, I wrote about a local pastor, Larry Silverman, of New Covenant Grace Fellowship.
    Shortly after that I was dusting my bookcase and found a book Larry wrote, “The River is Here.”
    The river in the title is taken from something Jesus said: “Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart’” (John 7:38, New Living Translation).

  • Just a little touch of reality

    I am a political junkie! I can’t get enough of the political theater unfolding before us. It is entertaining but at the same time is of utmost importance. I sometimes get caught up with the candidates’ and pundits’ claims that “we have to get this right”, and, “this is the most important election of our lifetime!”

  • Be winsome to win some

    Ask a group of restaurant servers which is their least favorite shift to work and their number one answer will be Sunday after church.
    It seems we churchgoers are a cranky bunch when we’re hungry, and that’s putting it politely.
    Their consensus of us is that we’re demanding and rude. We sit in large groups and stay longer than we should, discussing the morning’s sermon (or latest church gossip), commenting on the heathens at the nearby table drinking Bloody Marys.

  • We should all choose be to Soldiers in God’s army

    By Don Powell, Pastor
    Beaver Baptist Church

    Each Memorial Day we honor the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today.  
    We remember the loved ones that have gone before us and the example they left for us.
    They each left a path for us to follow. We may not be called upon to lay down our life for a friend or our country, but we can live our lives in such a manner that we can leave a path for our children and grandchildren to follow -- a Godly path and a patriotic path.

  • Self-love is empty; God’s love fulfills and is overflowing

    “Dear Me,
    You are the most awesome-est thing that has ever walked on this earth. Love, Me” -- found on the Internet
    Just when you think you’ve heard everything, something new comes along that causes you to shake your head in curious amazement.
    According to a Charisma News report, sologamy is on the rise as the latest marriage trend.
    It seems that people, mostly women, are marrying themselves, often in elaborate ceremonies with a bridal gown, bridesmaids, guests, a reception -- and a honeymoon.

  • Lessons in caring

    Recently I spent time with some people who are homeless.
    I had met some of them while tagging along at the annual countywide housing count, which is another way to say homeless count.
    Every year, people who care go out and find the people who live in the woods or in their cars or sleep in abandoned buildings and get as much information about them as they can.
    People who care want to meet these people’s immediate and ongoing needs with tents and blankets and stoves, and also their long-term needs.
