John Bressler - 'God's word cannot be compromised'

Joshua was now an old and weathered man who had been with the Israelites through the invasion into Canaan and wanted to be absolutely certain this young nation to be understood their responsibilities and their loyalties to the God who had brought them this far.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - To Facebook or not to Facebook? I'm all in

I used to think naively that social networking (i.e., Facebook) had nothing to do with business. Well, I missed the boat on that one. I have always understood how Facebook can be used as a marketing tool. However, it is the covert side of the social networking site that took me by surprise.

Kathy Bradley - My job is to find the truth

The table is large and round. The food is good. The conversation is warm and inclusive. We laugh a lot. Some of the laughter is directed at each other. Some of it is directed toward the unspeakable matters with which we deal every day and which we can't share with the people we love, the unavoidable dark humor of those who see the worst in humanity and manage, somehow, not to fall into the abyss themselves.

John Bressler - Our mission is to change the world one person at a time

In my old age, I often think that all children should be taught how to cook from scratch. Nowadays, too many folks of all walks of life want stuff now, prepackaged and in easy heat, open and eat containers. I am not saying that we have to return to our roots where we planted, tended, harvested, canned or processed our future food. What I am moving towards is our ability to get away from the answer and work hard on the method to get the answer. In other words, "I got the solution the hard way. I worked for it!"

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Vacationing on Florida's nervous west coast

My editor Jim Healy forgot that this is my vacation "week", i.e., I normally don't write a column this week. When he called me on Thursday to firm up what we were doing, I just laughed, because I really didn't have anything to offer.

New tax on tanning beds leaves me burned

I don't know about you all, but I have just have had it with that crowd in Washington, D.C., and the "removed" way from the populous that they govern. The latest installment in their arbitrary manner of "ruling" is the "tanning" tax levied on the sale of tanning bed time.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - States rights: American as apple pie

One of the hottest topics in our current political climate is "States Rights." Members of the American Continental Congress were appointed by their state's governors to guard their state's rights as much as they were to form a union while writing the "Articles Of Confederation."

Old Franklin's North Main site to get a facelift

This will probably sound somewhat negative, but I think you might agree with me regarding my opinion about the northwest corner of the intersection of North Main Street and Northside Drive - the location where Franklins Restaurant operated for so many decades.

Black History Month

I came to know about "Blind Willie" McTell late in my life - about 11 years ago when I was working on Del Presley's "A Place to Call Home" at the brand new Emma Kelly Theater.

Singing songs of the good news

About four years ago, comedian Steve Martin, who is also one great banjo player, wrote an interesting piece of music, "Atheists don't have no songs." Yes, I know that's a double negative. According to Martin, their hymnbook is only one page and if the name of God is there, it's spelled with a lower case "g." Go figure.

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?
