  • Ark Encounter opens to rave reviews

  • 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.

  • Lessons learned from brussel sprouts

    Ever since I can remember I have hated brussel sprouts. I remember my mom serving them from time to time, and I always had to eat at least one. And one was always about 15 too many for me.

    Anyway, I cannot ever remember voluntarily eating a brussel sprout. As an adult I have never tossed any fresh frozen brussel sprouts in my grocery cart or even tried them at a potluck. I apologize to those of you who love brussel sprouts, but they are just not for me.

  • God never disappoints

    By John Rohr

    Do you ever really look forward to something only to have it disappoint you? For instance, I love going to the movies, but sometimes the movie doesn’t match my expectations.

  • Value of hard work

    Usually we associate hard work with sweat on the brow and perhaps aching muscles, and there is certainly a lot of that to be done.  There are houses to be built, crops to be planted and harvested, there are roads to be repaired, cars to be built - you know what I mean.

    There are other people that work hard every day who never break a sweat. They work in offices or in stores; they sell insurance or help us buy houses. Some of these folks work long hours in front of a computer screen or talking on the phone or, well, maybe even teaching in our local schools.
