  All of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility.  –1 Peter 5:5  It was once my privilege to preach in a church where love and warmth were especially evident.

I love Bible prophecy, I don’t fully understand all of it but I definitely believe all of it and more and more of it becomes discernible as time goes by. I don’t claim to be an expert or a scholar, I have never had any formal training in interpreting and understanding the scripture, but I have read those I respect […]

Editor’s Note: I watch our city, county, and state government following the lead, within financial constraints, by emulating Detroit and every other city, state, and county in the country minus a few toward perpetual debt. And we as individuals have followed along without a single moment of opposition. Sad, because government is not getting smaller or smarter. By: John Hayward […]

Remember the five simple rules to be happy: Free your heart from hatred. Free your mind from worries. Live simply. Give more. Expect less. No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He […]

They loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. – John 12:43   How many people do we know like this? I once read a newspaper story about an old carnival headliner nicknamed “Cannonball.” In his younger days, he was blasted out of a cannon 1,200 times, pulled a 90-pound weight across a table with his eyelids, and […]

Posted by: Daisy Luther Monsanto and their biotech buddies would have you believe that they are super-heroes, set on saving hungry children from starvation wearing a dazzling fake-green cape. In fact, in a recent attack on activists, Monsanto’s CEO Hugh Grant said that because critics “can afford” organic food, we don’t care about the plight of those who can’t afford […]
