Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Blessed are the poor in spirit'

The opening words of the greatest sermon ever given are "Blessed are the poor in spirit." The "Sermon on the Mount" is the cornerstone of Jesus' teachings about the Kingdom of God. The beatitudes are the foundation of the sermon, and this beatitude is the heart of the group of beatitudes.

Kathy Bradley - Take these chains

Two more ligustrum are gone, the two that guarded either side of the front steps. They were well over six feet tall, too tall for me to trim from the ground, too dangerous to try to trim leaning off the porch, so they constantly sported asymmetrical spikes of bright yellow and neon green that made them look like herbaceous rock stars.

John Bressler - What would Jesus say in a debate?

"Today's debate will be between some very respected and recognizable speakers from around the country and a relative unknown from the small province of Galilee. In all fairness, our panel needs no introduction and they have all agreed to let the newcomer speak first out of professional courtesy. So, let's hear from the young man we'll refer to as Jesus who we understand was trained as a carpenter by His deceased father, Joseph. Opening statement?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Dating is not a subject dad will discuss

Q: My husband won't allow our 17-year-old daughter to date. She is an excellent student, very involved in activities at school and church, and has never given us any major problems. A rather brave boy has tried repeatedly to ask my husband to date our daughter, but my husband won't even give him the time of day, despite the fact that he's a good kid from a good home. We know his family, and it's become embarrassing for all of us, except my husband, that is. He refuses to even discuss it. The whole situation is ...

John Bressler - Make your choices wisely and carefully

I don't know how many of you read the Wall Street Journal, but occasionally there are some good articles to be found. Last week's was a hoot! It seems that two men in the Pittsburgh area stole a 30,000-pound steel bridge to sell for scrap. I used this for a class in critical thinking.

John Bressler - It is our destiny to do our best to be responsible

When I was in my teenage years, my mother was at the bedside of her father - my wonderful grandfather, "Dad Brown" - just before he died. He was hardly religious - even though he never objected to my attending the local Methodist church - and we never spoke of God, the hereafter or anything remotely resembling religion. My grandmother made up for his lack of beliefs because she always told me bedtime stories. These hardly comforting tales were like, "There was this little boy who was very bad and the devil punished him ... a lot. Good night, sleep tight and don't let ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Proper behavior follows proper discipline

Once upon a time, I thought, as did and still do many if not most people in my profession, that behavior modification was going to make the discipline of a child as simple and straightforward as teaching a rat to run a maze.

Kathy Bradley - Caribou and coyotes

The fog thins just enough for me to see the sun, a flat white communion wafer floating in a halo of wavy opalescence. The trees and fences and barns beneath it stand unusually straight, as though three dimensions are not enough to spotlight their long lines and sharp angles. My hand on the steering wheel moves left and right, in the easy rhythm of a weaver's shuttle, following the curves of the road toward that flat white sun onto which it was easy to believe that, if I just keep going, I could slide like a base runner stealing ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Pentecost 30 A.D. A day for eternity

The Jews of Jesus' day celebrated several major feast days - Passover, Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths. Pentecost was the second most important of these celebrations, Passover being the most important. It always came exactly fifty days following the Passover Sabbath, according to Leviticus 23:15-l6, and was always on the first day of the week.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy feasts and fellowship this month

Again, recent temperatures belie the season, but it truly is the month of November in south Georgia. Whether warm or crisp, it's the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest: the love of family and friends and all the memories both have provided throughout the year. Incorporate a spirit of thankfulness in every day with each event, feast or fellowship. Be grateful for the minutiae and the mighty, and enjoy the beauty of November with those you love.

There is a cure for all illness

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."
