Kathy Bradley - The March wind doth blow

Two weeks ago one of the young sawtooth oaks in the backyard was still clinging to its winter leaves - tight little wrapping paper tubes of brittle brown. The bigger leaves were long gone; these were the recalcitrant ones, the obstreperous children determined to have their own way.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What on earth did Jesus say?

One of my Bible professors in Graduate School tried to drum into our head the principle that reading the Bible doesn't always lead to understanding it. Nor does comprehension always lead to obedience. The motives of people for reading the Bible are not always as high or pure as they must be to benefit fully from the revelation of God's will.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents are not teaching cell phone manners

A reader asks if I have ever written a column on texting while eating in restaurants. She writes: "Recently my husband and I observed a small group at a table near us in a local restaurant. There were two teenage boys and a mother. They never talked to one another the entire time. All they did was text and play with various electronic gadgets. I asked our waiter if this happened a lot and he said it was the norm. He also told us that he often has to wait while taking an order until a person gets off their ...

John Bressler - Sin is the unique and undeniable essence of every human being

Sunday, Pastor Jimmy gave me some great insight which I hope to share with you. While some very sincere folks believe that whatever ails us can be cured by faith, the fact is that some problems need earthly medial assistance. If break my arm, God has given some very good doctors who know how to set broken bones and I'll see the physician before I try to fix it myself. If my psychological balance is out of whack, most self-help books are the last resort and the best possible solution is to see a therapist. This is not to ...

John Bressler - Don't worry about the end of the world

Are you a Premillennialist, a Postmillennialist, an Amillennialist or just a plain old Millennialist? I'll say this: I have heard more end of time conversation in the last few weeks than one can imagine and quite a few folks are pretty jittery about the entire scenario. According to Google, 45 million searches are asking about all these catastrophes and disasters, 380 thousand are checking out the latest on the Mayan calendar and about 11 million want to know what the Bible has to say about the end of the world.

Holli Deal Bragg - What can we do about crime?

Just a few years ago, it seems, many of us never locked our doors. We left our windows rolled down when we went to the store, we never worried about people going into our homes. Now we have security cameras, car alarms and motion lights.

Kathy Bradley - An event not remembered

It is grainy and gray, faded and fragile to the touch, a newspaper clipping from 1966. I am bent over it with a combination of amusement and incredulity. The caption says that it is a photograph of Girl Scout Troop 370 on a field trip to the Statesboro Herald. It identifies the 20 or so girls, row by row. There in the middle is my name.

John Bressler - At what age do we start teaching our children?

When I was called to the pastorate about 40 years ago - even though it seems like yesterday - Communion was not given to children who were not considered capable of "discernment" insofar as communion, The Eucharist or the Lord's Supper is concerned. Dr. Ben Lacy Rose, the wise old professor of church polity, sacramental education and administration, wrote many an article explaining the theological wisdom of those too young to understand but was always a tad fuzzy when it came to adults who may have been born with a handicap, which truly prevented them from having the capacity to figure ...

John Bressler - God never changes

I started working full time and in the managing training program with JC Penney three days after receiving my BBA and was told on the very first day of a promising career, "Forget everything you were taught. We'll make a retailer out of you." And they did.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy warmth, green of March

After the bizarre winter we've had, it seems fitting that Spring would burst forth in beauty, long before the calendar announces its arrival. Take advantage of springtime weather and make fun, creative memories for family and loved ones. Have picnics, fly kites, and go fishing. While observing the grass and buds exhibit all shades and hues of green, turn your world St. Patty's green with green milkshakes and green tea; green eggs and green grits; green broccoli, beans, celery and peas. Watch for leprechauns and new blossoms, each day in March, and enjoy some of these bizarre, but ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Why teen mental health has worsened

In the 1960s, child and teen mental health and behavior problems began an alarming rise that has continued to the present. In 1970, one of my grad school professors proposed that this trend could be explained with the flight-or-fight principle (i.e. in response to perceived threat, a person is inclined to either flee or stand and fight).

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: March is a month of merriment

With the rainbow of colors on recent weather maps and the shuttered doors of schools just hours north of here, it's difficult to imagine that March pledges shamrocks and springtime. But promise it does, at least on the calendar. Watch for leprechauns, greenery and Irish dances the first part of the month and delight in the early spring offerings toward the end. Look for every shade of green imaginable when new buds and fresh leaves make their appearances after a long winter's nap. Enjoy the hues and colors of springtime with lawns that awaken and trees and flowers ...

Kathy Bradley: A pocketful of pennies

It has become an annual trip. A pilgrimage. And though we don't remove our shoes or crawl on our knees or touch our foreheads to the ground, we probably should. The spot is that sacred.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son's anxiety caused by panic attacks

Q: My 13-year-old son has developed overwhelming anxiety about going to school. This began a year ago, but has gotten steadily worse since then. At this point he fights me every morning about going to school, and even if I can persuade him to get in the car, he won't get out. If I try to force him, he becomes nearly hysterical. I'm a stay-at-home mom, so there have been many days this year when I've simply taken him back home. His principal and everyone at the school say he's fine once he's in the ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Custody battles should prioritize kids

Equality under the law is a uniquely American principle, one that no freedom-loving person would oppose, but the manner in which said principle is currently applied to the issue of child custody treats children as property - like pieces of furniture or bank accounts - rather than human beings with rights of their own, including the right to stable living conditions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: So long, Statesboro; hello, Lowcountry

Sometimes you have to embrace a place before you can move on. I remember the moment I chose to embrace Statesboro. It was during a solo lunch at McAlister's Deli. No one here was writing about food, at least not in our hometown newspaper. I saw a need to highlight the local restaurants in our city, to draw positive attention to the chefs and restaurant owners and to help promote our outstanding farming community. I reached out and pitched my idea to the Statesboro Herald, and thankfully they agreed.
