"If It Was Easy..."

  1. 26th June 2021
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

There were five kids in my blended family, growing up during the 1950s, and my stepfather was a genius at keeping all of us busy. As kids, we were allowed to play, but first, there was a myriad of chores and maintenance projects that kept us busy doing productive things. The usual chores, like regularly mowing the lawn, trimming hedges, and raking leaves, over...

The Old Dirt Road

  2. Lehman B. Lyons Jr.

For years, my dad has run—not jogged—down an unpaved road located just a few miles from our home. “The Old Dirt Road,” as we called it, was just one of the many farm roads that decorate the American South. This three-mile, undeveloped byway served my father well for his exercise of choice after a hard day’s work. It also served me, by giving me a chance to learn...

  2. Roger Meyer

How can you know the future, particularly your own personal future? Will you find your fortune? Can you look into the future and find out? Is your future already determined? Many people resort to astrology to try to find out whether the stars, planets, and moon are aligned to bring fortune in their future, whether this or that decision will bring success, or...

Dignity: Old Fashioned?

  1. 12th June 2021
  2. Charles Knowlton (1927-2013)

Looking at old family photos, especially ones concerning church-related affairs, a person is struck by how well people dressed. Many people were poor, but when it came to how they dressed for occasions where God was involved, they wore their best. These were God-fearing people and they took Proverbs 3:7 to heart: “Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and...

A Line in the Sand

  1. 09th June 2021
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

In 1836, a very significant battle took place on the American frontier. In an old Spanish mission known as the Alamo, a poignant scene played out. As the sounds of “Toque a Degüello,” a battle anthem that signified “no quarter,” were heard from outside the mission walls, the besieged defenders knew that General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna was giving notice that...

  2. Roger Meyer

There is a lot to be said for being grateful. In fact, it has been a subject of research at universities by psychologists during recent decades. This research has concluded that those who are grateful are happier. They also earn more money, are better students, have more friends, and enjoy better health, to name a few of the benefits derived from an attitude and...

Nihilism: Refuge of Those Without Hope

  1. 02nd June 2021
  2. Brian Pomicter

Years ago, a television ad posed the question, “If you’re going nowhere today, where will you be tomorrow?” I was impressed by its message since, as a young teen, I was at that age where the mind starts to mature and focus more on the future. As we grow up, we inevitably look beyond the current day and develop a "game plan" for life.

  2. J. Davy Crockett III

As visitors flock to Washington, D.C. in this summer’s travel season, the memorials of wars fought by the United States of America will be a main attraction. These memorials are a stark reminder of the high price paid in death, destruction, and human suffering from which it takes generations to recover. Yet, there are those who died in a great war in this...

"I Have Bad News and Good News"

  1. 26th May 2021
  2. Roger Meyer

“I have bad news and good news. Which do you want to hear first?” This is a premise of some jokes and also of some serious diagnoses. No one wants to hear bad news, while we all love good news. Prophets of God and Jesus Christ Himself delivered both bad news and good news.
