John Bressler - Why the joy of Thanksgiving is so special

I don't remember when I began to realize that there was something special about the celebration we call Thanksgiving. I knew that Thanksgiving began in the Fall when the leaves were changing and there was a chill in the air. I do remember those days in West Virginia when I would walk to school and my breath looked like steam coming from a kettle.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Funny' can also be tragic

Some of the most humorous things in life are also among the most tragic. Many entertainers have made slapstick comedy a staple of their acts. The tragedy is that sometimes the physical and mental effects of alcoholic beverages serve as the basis for the humor.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - A fond farewell to the Trellis Garden Inn

It certainly isn't uncommon to see a business close its doors these days, and it isn't something that I enjoy reporting, but a few people have contacted the Herald saddened by the closing of the Trellis Garden Inn in downtown Statesboro.

Kathy Bradley - Where is thy sting

One by one - purse, briefcase, gym bag - I toss into the car the tangible burdens with which I begin each day. I pause just long enough to watch wide brown sycamore leaves, curled like arthritic hands, scuttle nervously across the yard in response to an asthmatic breeze. Somewhere down the road a diesel engine grinds up a hill and its sound vibrates over empty fields and against my cheeks. It is dawn. It is autumn. It is still.

John Bressler - I am a believer in providence

Very recently, I mentioned goal setting and how important it is to have a direction and a plan for life. This does not mean that every hope is fulfilled and every expectation met. Too many folks would rather believe that life is a crap shoot - the throwing of dice - and that means to rely on the slim possibility that luck will slap them on the head when it's their turn. If that were the case, then preparation for the day is to always have a regimented order when it comes to getting dressed, what must be worn, the specific ...

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Rawls settle in Bulloch and Screven

The family name Rawls comes from the "Olde German" name 'Rolf.' This in turn comes from the Viking clan Hrolfr," which translates roughly to '"Fame-Wolf." The Rawls name didn't show up in England until the 13th Century.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Mr. McMillan: 50 years at Howard Lumber

Record unemployment numbers are clearly frightening. They are frightening for those that are looking for a job, and those who are concerned about their job security in a sputtering economy.

John Bressler - See it! Believe it! Achieve it!

Because we have been working on goal setting and thinking about the future and what skills can be applied to give us a fighting chance, it triggered a memory of a particular passage of scripture that can be very controversial: Philippians 2:12, "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling..." Are you telling me that I have to somehow save myself? I don't think so."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Cleve White is selling Nissan dealership

I think many of you may be surprised to hear that Cleve White, owner of Cleve White Nissan in Statesboro, has sold his dealership. When I spoke with White this past weekend, he confirmed the deal was signed, and as of Nov. 15, he would no longer be the owner of the dealership that he founded 10 years ago.

Kathy Bradley - By water and words

A few Sundays ago, on a luminous October morning, my great-nephew was baptized. Sunshine slanted through the stained glass windows like a sword's swath, stippled the curves of the dark wooden pews with shards of golden light and afforded dust motes a spotlight within which to dance.

John Bressler - It's a tough job market out there

I am glad that elections are over for the time being and now all will be waiting for the shoe to drop. By that, I mean it will be put up or shut up time. A huge fact: this voting public may be some of the most informed and motivated as most are far less concerned about the looks and demeanor of a candidate as they are about the credentials and ability each hopefully possesses. To boil this all down, the candidates have made a career choice, the electors have set high standards and all who voted will not be ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Depend on God's help to overcome trials and sins

Randy Becton is an inspiring Christian writer and speaker who lives in Texas. In a small collection of Christian lifestyle essays entitled "Chosen Path," he has included an article on God's victory over our weakness and failure. Here's a brief excerpt:

Kathy Bradley: Off-road and cross country

From inside the house I can hear both sets of wind chimes clanging, harmonizing from opposite eaves, dancing madly like Russian Cossacks. The sun is high and the light is white. There is no good reason, no reason to stay inside.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Give “special tantrums” a “special place”

Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos" but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling - a boy - but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him, so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!

Only one path to the true God

"All men, by different paths, seek the same God." Years ago, when I first heard this phrase, I thought it sounded pretty plausible, intelligent and seemed to have a ring of inclusion for those trying to make sense out of the many religions in this old world of ours. I don't think it does. I'll get to this in a few minutes.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Cut stress and drop parenting magazines

Proposed: The primary reason so many of today's mothers are so very stressed by child rearing - something their grandmothers, for the most part, approached fairly nonchalantly - is because they do something their grandmothers did not do: they read parenting columns, magazines, and books. And yes, I'm well aware of the irony here.

Change can be a good thing

It's Monday, January 12th, and the first day of classes here at old East Georgia State College. I've been preparing for today since the last semester ended about a month ago. I keep re-reading my old notes to find out if I had left anything out, need to emphasize this point or that section and just wanting to make the course better. I have come to the conclusion that the course has been revamped to the max and if anything needs to be fixed or improved, it's got to be me. It's got to be me ...

Lead rational thought with understanding of God's will

Human beings are creatures of rational thought and ideas. We are able to plan, and follow those plans, because of our ability to think concretely. Just over 50 years ago, university professor Dallas Willard said that "we live at the mercy of our ideas" ("Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God," 1963). A few examples from the pages of Scripture showing the practical application of this statement might be helpful to us in understanding his meaning.

Five easy steps for teaching obedience

Who are the happier campers in a workplace setting: the employees who (a) obey the rules, follow the procedures and voice any complaints respectfully so that the entire workplace is not disrupted, or (b) disobey the rules at every possible opportunity, deliberately fail to follow procedures and disrupt the workplace with frequent and often subversive complaints?

Kathy Bradley: Cemeteries, camellias and cold

It may have been the trees, soaring and spreading and stretching up into the sky and down into the earth. It may have been the words, carved into stone in letters thick and straight, their assertion of permanence both ironic and inspiring. It may have been the silence or the stillness or the statuary that captivated me, that made the cemetery at Christ Church on St. Simons one of my favorite places. I don't remember and I can't say that I ever knew for certain, but on that day the thing that grabbed me and held me was ...
