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 - 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."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Patriots hated, feared Coffell

Colonel Joseph Coffell (or Scophol) was said by Patriot General William Moultrie to have been an "illiterate, stupid, and noisy blockhead." Stupid though he may have been, he certainly gave them a great deal of trouble.

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 ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God is always a good, wise choice

Years ago, Lindell Doty, a retired preacher and friend of mine now living in Florida, suggested that everybody has choices to make. Now, making decisions can be hard - sometimes so hard that we delay them as long as possible.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Today's parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I've been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think - and in some cases even insist - are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Patience is the cure in potty training

Q: I've been using the method described in your toilet-training book with my 18-month-old daughter and she's been doing great during the day. She rarely has an accident. However, I'm still using a diaper at nap-time and during the night (waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct? The only problem is: She's figured out the routine and now only poops in her diaper when I put her down to sleep. She has not gone poop on the potty during the day for several weeks. Is that cause for concern? Should ...

Time to put away childish things

The other day, I just happened to be in one of our prestigious retailers and my phone rang, so I answered it. It was one of our kids filling us in on the latest news about grandchildren, birthdays and not to forget the presents. Anyway, I noticed some high school-aged children staring at me and I asked, "You need something?"

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A different solution to closet monsters

Q: About six months ago, our four-year old daughter began complaining of being afraid to be alone at bedtime. Upon questioning, she told us she was afraid of monsters in her closet and under her bed. We were unable to convince her otherwise. In fact, the more we talked to her, the more her fears grew to the point where she was becoming nearly hysterical at bedtime. As a result, I began staying with her until she fell asleep. The problem is that she wants to talk and doesn't end up falling asleep until 10 or 11 o'clock ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Those who receive God's comfort must comfort others

"Comfort." It's a nice word, bringing up thoughts of well-being, security and ease. It was a word that reminded the apostle Paul of his relationship with God. Writing to the Corinthian church, he noted that God "comforts us in all our affliction ... (2 Cor. 1:4). Finishing his thought, he added, "... so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." God expects those whom he has comforted to use their opportunities to help others.

Kathy Bradley: Me and Gloria Gaynor

This is what I heard. This is what I heard this morning. This is what I heard this morning when I walked outside into sunshine. When I walked outside into air that was warm and slightly cloying. This is what I heard: the songs of at least six different birds rising up gently from the branch like the voice of a mother waking her sleeping child. This is what I heard: the drip drip drip of water off the roof onto the curved mouth of the gutter, a message delivered by tom-tom.
