Start new year off right

Here we are at the beginning of a new year, the year 2010. Some of us only dreamed of being alive in this year. We had dreams that life in 2010 would be like "The Jetsons" cartoons we watched as children.

Thank God and those who guide, support us

I wanted to take time during this Thanksgiving season to thank you for all you do. There are always a few people who do most of the work. Sometimes that happens at work, in a family, in a church or in a community.

Be aware of love, hate in life

So often these days we hear stories about love and hate. In fact, if we look at our own lives and the things going on around us, we can see the impact of love and hate. This love and hate cycle is part of our lives.

Goodbye to dear friends

Our community has a friend. Our community has many friends. However, one friend really comes to mind this week. Perhaps the reason for this is that we will soon bid farewell to him and his wife.

Government should not be parents

It's that time again. November third is coming and you have to decide: Will you go stand in line and navigate the waters of the voting pool? Or will you say, "I just don't have time for this, and what difference does it make anyway? I'm not going." Or, how about this one: "I don't like the choices. I'm not even going to vote this time." I actually had one person say to me in a restaurant this week, "Unless they can give me someone worth voting for, why should I bother?"

Don't settle for less with the Lord

The day after Thanksgiving, we began our Christmas decorating. It always is my job to get everything down from the attic, put the tree up and put lights on it. My wife does most of the rest. I put a few decorations near the top, including "the topper." Any outside decorations usually are my responsibilities, too.

Life can be ultimate carnival ride

If you are a fan either of the Bulldogs or the Yellow Jackets, you rode that coaster hard last Saturday. In all of my years of watching football (or any other sport), I do not remember a time when a game has swung back and forth like that. Even a basketball game with a one-point difference doesn't feel like that.

Seek the crown, preach the gospel -- part 1

This command was given by our Lord prior to his ascension back into heaven. "And he said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned'" (Mark 16:15-16). No matter who or what the individual may be - king or beggar, rich or poor, educated or illiterate - the message of the Gospel is for all. It is by this message that man can learn what to do to obtain the grace God offers to all.
