    The purpose that God has given to His people is to be holy. He has likewise given His people a mission. The mission of God’s people, the church of Jesus Christ, is as clear as His revealed purpose.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Support Republicans in May elections

    As we look to municipal elections, the candidates might not have a party affiliation by their name on the ballot, but the party that they align with matters. We need elected officials in “non-partisan” races who believe in our Republican principles of lower taxes, less regulations, strong family values and less government in our business.

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The gasp of the unbelievable

    It is the sound that is made when the unbelieveable happens. It’s the sucking of air otherwise known as gasping. It seems, as the days roll on, I find myself gasping more and more frequently as I watch the local and national news or hear stories from people I love. In fact, I have come to the point where I would rather not watch the news. It is all because of “the gasp.”

  • Idle American: Marjorie Main, In Love and War...

    Folks with dim memories of World War II recall the “coming home” of troops, and attendant triumphal celebrations that reverberated around the globe.  Believers in democracy-- weary of Movietone newsreels’ gory war scenes at movie theaters, dismal commentaries on radio and troubling newspaper accounts--were ready for news of loved ones returning home—a place, someone said, where when you go there, they have to let you in.

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: Keeping an eye on things

    While reading Annie Dillard’s intriguing book “Teaching a Stone to Talk,” a line jumped out at me: “We are here to witness.” That word “witness” brought back a flood of memories and feelings from my childhood.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: The Solid Foundation

    Samuel J. Stone wrote “The Church’s One Foundation” in 1866 which was inspired by Ephesians 2:20. His first verse is: “The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord; she is his new creation by water and the Word; from heav’n he came and sought her to be his holy bride; with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.” The church of which he wrote and of which the Bible speaks is both invisible and visible. The church is an organism, the body of Christ and an organization.
