Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It's time to clean up our spiritual lives

Several years ago, my wife Carole and I were in "the process" of moving to a different house in Statesboro. "The process" had began several weeks earlier when we learned our offer on the house we're in now had been accepted, and we started getting things together.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Mom losing her patience, sleep

Q: I gave birth to our second child a few weeks ago so I'm sleep-deprived and running low on patience. In the meantime, my 3-year-old son has become another person. He has regressed with potty training; he isn't cooperating with me about anything; and he laughs when I put him in time-out, like it's a joke. I find myself yelling and threatening constantly. Is this directly related to having a new sibling? If so, will it pass? By the way, he seems to like the idea of being a big brother. He's very sweet to him ...

Kathy Bradley - Three views from an office

I've worked in this building for 11 years. I'm presently in my third office. The first one was directly by the front door and everyone who came in passed by. It had a set a double windows with a sill wide enough that, on afternoons when my brain pulsed like the walls of a disco and distraction was the only antidote for the throbbing, I could sit and watch the traffic - car and foot - move by on Main Street in currents running north and south.

John Bressler - Bringing together folks of different faiths

While I was pastor of the Presbyterian Church on South Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, Florida, I was asked to convene, chair and moderate the NCCJ, the National Conference of Christians and Jews. We met monthly and the group included mostly Reform rabbis, members of their congregations, as well as Christian pastors and church members. There was one purpose of the gathering and that was to study the Bible and how it was read, studied and applied in Jewish and Christian communities.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Separate biting sister, brother

Q: In the last month, our 36-month-old daughter has started biting her 22-month-old brother, usually over toy struggles. It is always to get his hand to release the toy in question. I'm sorry to say that when she bites, I lose it. My husband says I should put her in her room until he gets home from work no matter what time of day the biting occurs. She is currently in her room until dad gets home. I worry that this is too much for a child her age, but then again, time-outs are a joke. Help!

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Savor sweet times in September

The sound of helmets and football pads clashing, tempered with melodious band notes in the background - the aroma of freshly mowed farmers' fields - and the sprinkling of orange and golden pumpkins and gourds at the produce stands heightens the senses to the impending shift from summer to autumn. Celebrate and treasure a new season with family members and those you love. Create lasting memories with the holidays below, or invent some new family traditions to cherish.

What is significant about June 3, 1992? Well, that is the day that the brand new Bi-Lo opened in the Statesboro Mall. Taking into account the fervor that our community has for its grocery stores, I thought that date might have significance for some of you.

The heart of Christmas is priceless

When I was about eight years old, I took great pride in decorating my bedroom for Christmas. We lived in a two-story home in the quaint community of Blythe, Georgia - population 708 - and my room was upstairs to the right and down the hallway. It had two windows that looked out onto the street, a small closet, a little white ceiling fan and pink carpet. I had a radio and cassette player that sat on my window seat. The seat was crafted by my late Great Uncle J.E., who was a cabinet maker. In early December, I would clean ...

Dr. John Bressler: The magic of Christmas

The last couple of weeks have been wonderful for someone who likes the Christmas season and especially if he or she is looking for some Christmas spirit. Julie and I started out by attending the downtown tree lighting ceremony in Brooklet. It was a bit chilly - which is just right for folks like us - and we felt like we were in a Christmas card surrounded by angels. There was great music, Scripture and plenty of laughter and applause to warm our hearts. We love attending church and singing all those carols and admiring the tree decorated with crismons and the ...

Why you shouldn't walk your kid to class

Q: My buddy's wife walks their 11-year-old into the classroom each day. Then she takes out his assignments and helps him get ready. We're talking about a very capable kid who has no "issues" at all. My buddy says other mothers at his son's school are also doing the same thing. My wife has heard about this and wants to start walking our very capable son into his 4th grade room. What are your thoughts?

Teaching religion in the classroom

I have been thinking about the GSU professor whose religious approach in class - if what I have read and heard is accurate and not just rhetoric - is at odds with our U.S. Constitution. There are plenty of ways to use intelligent discussion of religion to make a point, open some creative critical thinking and take advantage of a good liberal arts education. I have always believed that some of our theologians, like Augustine or Calvin, could really make an impact in sociology or economics without beating students over the head with Catholicism or Protestantism.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five fundamentals every parent needs

Despite the conclusion one might reach after reading the latest issue of any popular parenting magazine, the job of parent is actually quite simple - so simple that I can describe the entire ball of wax in less than 15 column inches.

Kathy Bradley: December refrain

It is Advent. The season of wonder. Hot on the trail of Thanksgiving and Black Friday and just a few hours before Cyber Monday. And so far the only wonder I've experienced is what to do with two perfectly good pumpkins that, along with a couple of diminutive bales of hay, some cotton stalks and branches of eucalyptus and about a dozen pine cones, made a lovely autumnal tableau for the front porch at Sandhill for the last two months.

Why Christmas is so special

Just in case you haven't been watching the everyday yuletide movies on television, Christmas is right around the corner. It's not just around the corner. It's on our doorsteps! Many years ago, we held off all the carols, decorating and buying until after Thanksgiving. Not now! Christmas has become such an economic necessity that retailers are already licking their lips as the GDP looks like it's made a comeback and money is for the making so prepare yourselves for a mountain of Rudolph, advertising and items that you must have in order to fill those stockings ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Preschool ain't all it's cracked up to be

Courtesy of my friend and parent coach Janet Neal (www.ourchildishways.com) comes an interesting story: The parents of a 4-year-old girl went to a preschool parent conference to learn from her teacher that she is having difficulty with scissors and somewhat behind the other kids in letter and number recognition. The parents apparently blew the teacher's mind when they replied that they were more concerned with their daughter's heart and character than her academic achievement. Was she compassionate? Was she respectful of her teachers and peers?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A brief list of today's parenting problems

From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks: You want your kids to think like you do. For example: If you're a liberal, you want your kids to be liberals when they grow up. Right? Right! The same is true of conservatives, libertarians, people of faith, people of no faith and people with COEXIST bumper stickers on their cars. Furthermore, that ...
