  • Worship that is Pleasing to the Lord

    I remember a delightful evening with friends.  Our hosts had a four-year-old whose favorite super hero was Bible man. He wanted to impress us so he got on his costume.

    He put on his Bible Man mask, his Luke Skywalker light saber, and his Bible woman cape because the purple looks cool, and his Bible man cape was torn.

    His mother asks him the Bible man questions, “Are you ready for battle?” He proclaims yes! She asks about his helmet, shield, sword, and shoes. He makes all the appropriate cute responses.  

  • Where Does Your Treasure Lie

    Our society surrounds us with a great cloud of enticement.  Wherever we turn we confront the claim that happiness is just around the corner, a matter of having more or better or newer things.  The father of American capitalism certainly endorsed this creed.  John D. Rockefeller, when asked what would make him happy, is said to have replied, “One dollar more.”

  • Letter to the Editor

    What is this? Let’s pick on the mayor month? Give it a rest.

    I feel that Bill Lammlein was voted into a mess. The former mayor certainly did not leave the city all tidy and up to date. There was a lot of unfinished business that the mayor had to wade through and figure out the best way he could. Papers were missing, computers gone, along with furniture.

    The Oldham Reserve was dumped into his lap. No one had asked him anything about this. It was not bought on his watch.

  • Country Comparison

    I am leaving beautiful Berlin and will soon be home again in Indiana.

    As my visit comes to a close, I find myself wondering once more why my ancestors ever chose to leave such a place.

    Make no mistake, I love the U.S. and am proud and thankful to be an American, but three hundred years ago, things were different.  It’s hard to imagine what my grandparents were thinking when they left family, community, and traditions behind and set sail for the unknown.
