    Mt. Eden Christian Church Homecoming to celebrate 173 years

  • Racial reconciliation and hope

    The latest murder of three Baton Rouge police officers has rattled our already fragile sense of safety and reminds us—as if we needed reminding—that we live in an age of hatred, a hatred that fuels terror and ends in murder. And the nearly daily dish of bad news leaves many of us are asking how we arrived at such a place.

  • A day at the zoo

    Last week, I mentioned a trip to the zoo.  Well, the rain held off and we did get to go.  It was hot, late in the afternoon, but we made it.

    For me, seeing the leopards and the giraffes was a blast, and I assumed that would be the case for my grandson. Shows what I know.  He starts chasing the robins and sparrows we see every day.  And a squirrel?  Look out!

  • Let the rain fall

    So I’m getting ready to take my Grandson to the zoo, and it is pouring rain right now. Now raining cats and dogs and going to the zoo don’t mean the same thing to me, nor will they mean the same thing to my Grandson.

    We’ve all had those times when we made our plans and then, through no fault of our own, things change.  The weather doesn’t cooperate, the park you wanted to visit is closed for renovations, or your flight gets canceled, so your carefully laid plans go out the window.

  • Ark Encounter opens to rave reviews


    Thousands of people descended on Grant County for the official Ark Encounter ribbon-cutting and media day held on July 5 and the grand opening to the public, which took place as planned on July 7.

  • The real meaning of independence

    Well, the Fourth of July, Independence Day, just passed again.  Did you celebrate this year? Did your family gather? Did you set off fireworks? Did you celebrate the freedom that all Americans share?

    Our freedoms were won with the blood and toil of our founding fathers. Our freedoms have been maintained with the sacrifices of hundreds of thousands since. We have learned to apply our freedoms to men and women of all races, though we struggle with those things still.

  • Lighting up the sky

    The other night there were storms all around.  Heavy winds blew, and rain fell for a while, and then it seemed to get all calm.  My wife and I went outside to let our dog do her business and were amazed at all the lightening flashing.
