  • Forgiveness sets the captive free

    By Cindy Warr, Refuge for Women
    Guest Columnist
    “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13
    There came a time in my middle 30s when the Lord was doing a new thing in my life.  
    He pressed it upon my heart to forgive my abusive-alcoholic father for the pain and suffering he caused when I was a child growing up.  

  • Thanksgiving through the Holidays

    By Mike Barres
    Here we are between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanksgiving really applies to both.
    In Psalm 100, the psalmist reminds us to “Enter his gates with Thanksgiving in our hearts.” In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Paul says, “In everything give thanks.”
    Thankfulness helps us to see life in a brighter light. We often focus on our problems and what we “don’t” have. If we were to make a list, of all that we do have, for which we should be thankful, life would appear a lot better to us.

  • Daylight after the fog lifts

    Recently, a local church pastor stopped by the newsroom to talk about depression — his.
    He had just come through a second bout of it and thought it was important to tell people that Christians and Christian pastors are not immune to it.
    It’s not a character thing; it’s a chemical, brain thing, he said.
    He called his depression a “dark night of the soul.” It made him tired and unable to eat, doubtful of God’s love for him, although not God’s existence.

  • Curse of the perfect turkey

    The year was 2002, a year that lives in infamy, or at least extreme annoyance, in my daughter, Alison’s, life.
    That was the year of the cursed perfect turkey.
    Prior to that, Alison’s Thanksgiving turkeys ranged from dry to just OK. But in 2002 she took a madcap leap of faith, risked everything and brined the bird — and it came out brown and crisp on the outside, moist and succulent on the inside. Perfection with drumsticks and wings.
