  • Holiday greenery has a history that goes well beyond the Victorian Christmas tree we gather around today.
    Most of the holiday greenery we use to decorate dates back to the pagan holidays of the Romans and Northern Europeans when certain plants were chosen for their symbolic powers of restoration and protection.

  • Every day we make choices about what we will eat. Some of us choose foods without much thought. Others make choices based on their health goals. For approximately six to eight million adults in the United States those food choices include no meat, fish, or poultry.

    “Make a joyful noise unto Jehovah, all ye lands. Serve Jehovah with gladness: Come before His presence with singing.” (Psalms 100: 1-2)  
    Make…serve…worship…with a joyful noise…with gladness…with singing.

  • One day last week I visited with the family of Jeremy, a 14-year-old teen who battles Tourette syndrome.
    Not only is the entire family battling the baffling neurological disorder that causes Jeremy to involuntarily and often violently move parts of his body and involuntarily make vocal sounds, but they are also battling the unkindness of people.
    People don’t understand and so they judge him, is how Jeremy’s 10-year-old sister Jamie explains it.
