  • COLUMN: Give back to mother nature during Earth, Arbor Days

    This Friday is Good Friday and Earth Day so we should all be in a good frame of mind to do our part to improve the world. Next Friday, we can put it to good use and plant some trees in celebration of Arbor Day.
    Surely we can top the first Arbor Day in 1872 when it was estimated that one million trees were planted in Nebraska alone.

  • COLUMN: Are you living a life worth following?

    “Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” (2 Timothy 4:2-5).
