  • COLUMN: Jesus’ plan for your life is far better than the devil’s

    In the Gospel of John chapter 8, Jesus said to those listening to him: “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”  
    With these words, Jesus teaches us that truth is the means to freedom.  
    Truth is a very important part of Jesus’ teaching.  He called himself the truth when he said, [John 14:6] “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

  • COLUMN: Yearly opportunities to help our neighbors

    As we approach Thanksgiving, I for one have plenty for which to be thankful and I hope that all of you do, too.
    But the truth of the matter is that there are plenty of our neighbors that could use a hand up this year.

    In the past several years since I retired from the Taylorsville Police Department, I have at times regretted that I left after only 20 years with them. It is my belief that as we walk this life we only have a certain amount of minutes to do what we were put here to accomplish. So I must ask: “why look back, and why walk those minutes with regrets?”
