Kathy Bradley - An exit filled with grace

Bobby Cox sits in the home dugout at Turner Field, arms folded across his belly like a slightly discontented Buddha. It is the bottom of the ninth and the good guys, as Skip Caray used to say, are down 3-2. The coach checks his scorecard, looks down the bench and calls for a pinch hitter.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Langworthy: From Loyalist to Patriot

Edward Langworthy was born in Savannah in 1738. Since he was born only five years after Georgia was settled, it is likely his parents were recruited from debtors' prisons or poorhouses back in London.

John Bressler -- Life: The circus, fair rolled into one

John Bressler - Electronics confuse us men

While many already know this, there are those few who have heard and yet are skeptic: God has given men a sense of direction so keen and wise that they do not need a map or mathematics to find their way … to things they really need.

Kathy Bradley - Haul back and let it loose

DeleteMy godson the football coach isn't having a very good year. Actually, he personally is having a very good year (He got married in January to a wonderful young woman he takes every opportunity to introduce as "my smokin' hot wife."); it's his football team that can't seem to get it together.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: We can conquer all fears

Fear comes in many forms and disguises. It goes by different names, such as "discouragement," "worry," "despair," "hopelessness" and "depression." We experience it in every conceivable circumstance, even in our relationship with God. Some fear is good, because it may save us from great harm: the fear of falling, of fire, of hell, etc. But even these "good" fears can become irrational and debilitating. There is the fear of failure, of loneliness, even the fear of being afraid.

John Bressler -- Are you just an accident? No!

Dr. Wesley Weatherhead, a great theologian and pastor, said, "There are two days in every life. The first day is the day you are born and the next day is when you find out why." I wish I had said that. I remember vividly when I was asking a class about their purpose and if they were no more than a breath of air, a passing fancy or even an accident. As I waited for some response, I noticed a young man making a call on his cell phone. I asked, "What in the world are you doing?" He spoke ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Leaves, fruit and reptiles

At last ... the coolness in the air gives us the feeling that autumn truly has arrived. Savor each beautiful, crisp morning and celebrate the new season. Take in a football game or two; look for pumpkins and scarecrows; attend a fall festival or fair parade; and look for every shade and hue of orange imaginable. And, as if the adventures above weren't enough to keep your family busy, try some of these zany holidays.

John Bressler - Sorry, I don't take surveys

Proverbs 22:6 (with my scribal insert), "Teach a child in the way he or she should go, and when he or she is old will not depart from it." I would like to say, "Teach your kids all you can when they are little and quit worrying. They'll be just fine."

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 ...

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...
