  • Once a child touches a hot stove, as the cliché goes—he learns his lesson, stay away from a hot stove. This cliché does not take into account the pain and suffering from burns and burns should not be part of the learning process.

  • In this article I decided to write about my favorite disciple, Simon Peter.

  • Last week, in a letter to the editor, a respondent asked “Where in the Bible did Christ change the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day?” This is a very good question because it is one that has been debated throughout the history of the church – should we worship on Saturday or Sunday? Unfortunately there is no clear cut answer to this question; however, there is enough textual information recorded in the Bible to make a strong argument.

  • My golden opportunity! My chance to shine! My time to show my family that I’m a warrior, a champion, a real sportsman, uh, sportsdog! I’m sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Mr. Dogwood, but my friends and family call me Woody. (Sometimes I’ll hear “Dogwood” if I’ve made a knucklehead decision or if my parents are trying to get my attention.) Anyway, I’m a black and tan miniature wiener dog who lives in the great state where I was born – Kentucky.

    When I was growing up, we knew dinner was on the table by 6 p.m.  We always ate together as a family every night (except when my brother had practice for basketball or baseball, my sister with orchestra and plays and me with track or softball).  Even with our extracurricular activities, we ate together more often than not.  It was a time of talking with each other about our day at school, work, friends, family etc.
