  • ‘Meat and taters’ doesn’t have to mean boring

    Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here typing this article I’m reminded of how sometimes summer just won’t turn loose and let fall in. What had been beautiful temperatures in the 70s shot back up to the upper 80s. The lesson to be learned I think is that if you don’t like the weather, just give it a couple of days, it will change. This hot weather keeps me reminded of the grilling season, which sooner or later will come to an end. But that doesn’t mean we have to give up on meat and potatoes. Far from it actually.

  • Humans cannot fix things on their own

    As I write this article for the paper this week, I pondered and prayed about what to say. After a time, I came to this–Our country is being divided by an enemy that cannot be seen. I am not talking about race against race; the left against the right; social prejudices; all the protesting, etc.; or even our president saying or implying things he shouldn’t. I am talking about an enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus talked in John 10:10 about this enemy. Jesus called him a thief–I call him Satan.
