School starts this week and parents in the area are busy shopping and making sure their children have everything they need for the first day of the new academic year.

Love God

We must never forget that we were created to worship and love God. We are the creation – He is the creator. We are to serve Him. All the blessings that His word tells us about are there for us if we will follow Him. The world has the idea that man can do just about whatever he wants and God will still save him.

Children also need quantity time

I was disappointed recently to hear a professional athlete tell of his decision to sign a contract that would have him living some 15 hours away from his kids.

We must follow the Holy Spirit

Grow in wisdom with the Lord

I am sitting here typing away on the computer in my office at church. When I finish writing what I want to say to you, I will save the document, attach it to an e-mail and send it to the editor of the paper.

Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie." It serves as a chilling reminder of the realities of war — a war that remains an afterthought for many Americans who weren't directly involved in the action — and the hurtful feelings many Americans still hold towards Islam.
