Today's Opinions

  • Stepping outside my comfort zone

    I am not fond of clichés, but the older I get, the more I understand the value of stepping outside the comfort zone and broadening your horizons. We often leave this to the young with admonitions off: go to college, discover yourself before you get married and travel before you have kids.

    Cookout warning

    Folks setting to break out their outdoor grill soon face a deadly choice of inflicting food poisoning or cancer on their family and friends.

    Food poisoning by E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, if they undercook their meat. Cancer – if they heat their meat to the point of creating cancer-causing compounds.

  • Earley: Learning God’s promises at death

    Last Sunday we lifted up our prayer requests and celebrations. There were a lot of prayers for people whose loved ones had died or were dying. There were a couple of 40-something parents who were dying of cancer. We prayed for them and their children. There was the infant who died in a tragic accident. She was the only child her older parents were able to have.

  • Mueller: Self-care is not necessarily being selfish

    Millions of folks struggle with the problem of inadequate self-care – not taking very good care of ourselves. We know the things we should do but we just don’t do them. There is a huge gap between what we know and what we do.

  • Earley: Knowing the full cost of faith

    It is said that Christians are being martyred for their faith more frequently than ever before in human history. All over the world, in countries run by kings, tyrants and dictators, it is dangerous to be a Christian. It is common for family members to turn their own children or spouse into the religious police for discipline when they find out that he or she has become a Christian.

  • Mueller: Choosing to ‘pray, grunt and giggle’ in life

    I love words and catchy phrases. I especially like the following letter from a man named Robert Pirosh applying for a job requiring verbal skills.
