Our Views: Secrecy bill a terrible idea for Georgia

What if a major developer wanted to build a large factory next to where you live? Or a commercial center? Or some other project that would dramatically affect local traffic or the environment in your neighborhood?

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 ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Farmers Market taking orders, delivering

This word "slick" doesn't always have the best connotation, but it so appropriate in this instance.

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 ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God is solution to worry and fear in us all

Surely no one ever served as a better role model for Christians, other than the Lord Jesus himself, than the apostle Paul.

Holli Deal Bragg - Misfit moms and deadbeat dads

When a woman recently asked that I write a column about deadbeat dads, my first reaction was that I had no experience with the topic. My father was an excellent provider, loving parent, and great teacher.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - University Tire combining 2 stores into 1

I think the natural inclination of most people is to think that a business is in trouble when it closes one of its stores, offices, or outlets. Given the times that we are in, that would be a reasonable assumption, but not always a correct one.

Kathy Bradley - It's not spring, but yard work sure feels like it

It is not spring. One look at the calendar confirms it, but on this Saturday morning you could fool anybody. The branch is ringing with overlapping bird calls and the sky is baby blanket blue. The breeze is so slight as to not seem a breeze at all, but something like the close breath of a lover. There is no resisting the pull.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Let God help with your parenting

I agree with the person who said, "If I'd known grandkids were going to be this much fun, I'd have had them first!" But that's not the way it works, is it?! The children come first, and then the grandchildren. And rearing our children right helps insure that our grandchildren will turn out well.

John Bressler - Why don't we listen to the easy message the Lord sends us?

There is a great beach in Sarasota, Florida, called Siesta Key, covered with what the locals call "sugar" sand. Just like the word implies, the sand is so soft that you feel you're walking on powder. At the north end, the road turns off to the right, unless you are wealthy enough to own a piece of Gulf-front property, where tourists and home folks are treated to some very tasty burgers and fries, a knock-down drag-out ice cream parlor and high-priced beach wear with some funky odds and ends every vacationer just has to have.

Kathy Bradley: Counting the ways...And counting what matters

Just past the shed, along what would be a fencerow - if there was a fence - the field lies flat and even. Not like a pane of glass, but like a table covered in a cloth smoothed by hands smelling of dish soap and lotion, with vague and uneven undulations that beg to be smoothed. Cut over and harrowed, it holds no sign of what grew there last year or the year before, or the decades of years before.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: What does God look like? Jesus Christ

There is a lot of skepticism about God today - as there has almost always been. Whether from atheists who deny God's existence, agnostics who aren't sure about the existence of God; or pessimists who doubt God's nature, who ask questions such as, "Where is God when bad things happen?" or, "Why does God allow evil?" These are not unusual ideas or questions, and honest questioners deserve an honest response.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let's get dressed for heaven

The Holy Spirit seems to have loved the use of analogy in inspiring the teachers and writers of Scripture. In the New Testament, the marriage union is used to represent the relationship between Jesus and his people. The Bible's applications of this parallel can help us prepare for the coming of Christ. If we want to be followers of Christ, we need to understand that "the Way" of Christ involves a change of our nature and a change of relationship to sin.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Facts must trump parents' 'feelings'

One of the signs of these confused and confusing times we live in is that facts don't matter. What matters are feelings and opinions, which are often confused and confusing. According to another author friend, this is the primary feature of post-post-modernity.

I've asked the men in several recent audiences to raise hands if they believe moms stress out concerning their children at least five times more than dads. All the men's hands went up to general laughter.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: April showers bring the treasures of springtime

The month of April showers the observant one with a magnificent display of colors, from the fragrant wisteria blossoms creeping through the boughs of trees to the willowy stems of bright-yellow Jessamine, to the snowbells bowing their heads and wild azaleas bursting forth. Seemingly every shade of green imaginable puts on a show just for the month of April before fading and dulling as summer approaches. New life springs forth: buds and blossoms, chicks and bunnies, an empty tomb and the Resurrection.

Kathy Bradley: People, like books, must be opened to be understood

Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, his shoulder fits into the hollow of my side and the loop of my arm conforms to the back of his neck. Exactly. Perfectly. I have to tilt my chin only slightly to rest it on the blonde head, to draw in the scent of little boy. One chair, two of us.

A little homework for Easter

Last Sunday, every church throughout the world celebrated Palm Sunday in sermon, music and pageantry. Allow me to use what I consider to be the first of the Synoptic Gospels, Mark, and read about the man Jesus, who many thought just might be the long-awaited Messiah. First off, let's try to envision Jesus' entry into Jerusalem from a point of view that most likely existed with at least three succinct and different groups: There were those who claimed that Jesus was the Messiah, those who were the locals and who may have recalled an event which took place nearly ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Shy, independent children are normal

Q: Our 7-year-old is very shy. He doesn't enjoy the sort of social activities, including sports, that other kids his age are generally involved in and would rather play alone. He has one friend, who is also quite shy. His mother and I have conspired to arrange weekly play dates, but whereas the boys get along fine, both kids sometimes balk at cooperating with them. My son occasionally tells me he'd rather read or play alone than play with this other boy. When I ask why, he tells me he "just would." His school counselor has recommended that ...
