  • The Bible answers our big questions on death

    I find Halloween to be a very interesting cultural holiday, though not because of the costumes and candy.

    Trick-or-treating makes complete sense to me. Costumes are fun, candy tastes good…therefore, kids love trick-or-treating — mine included. 

    Instead, what I find interesting about the holiday, is that it truly reveals our fascination with death. It’s a theme that runs through the month of October.

  • Harper tells students to follow their dreams, make good choices

    Former Indianapolis Colts player Shawn Harper spoke with Carroll County students in late October about the power of choice and of pursuing dreams.

    Harper’s assemblies combine feats of strength, such as rolling up a frying pan, with motivational speaking that shows students how to break free from mental chains. Mental chains are the false beliefs that people hold that keep them from living up to their potential.

    Harper spoke to all students at Carroll County High School and Carroll County Middle School over the course of the day.
