Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - A hymn for all the community

A few years ago, "community" was one of the popular words used by speakers and writers, especially among those dealing with Christian themes. It's a good word, denoting the concepts of kinship, harmony and mutual concerns.

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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Twins have mom's number

Q: My twin boys will be 3 years old next month. They sleep in the same room. They've recently taken to getting out of their beds (together, although one seems to be the ringleader) every night, over and over, for up to two hours. They make a lot of noise, then they giggle and run when I approach, and feed off each other as they're escaping. I'm not sure what to do. All I know is that what I've been doing isn't working! Help!!!

Kathy Bradley - A song and the passing of time

The sun this morning is a cross-section of pink grapefruit back-lit by a strobe light. It balances on the horizon, pulsing and trembling with the tension of anticipation, as though the day cannot begin quickly enough. As the road curves, it moves back and forth like the bouncing ball on the old Mitch Miller television show and I find myself wishing desperately that I knew the song. I try to identify what I am feeling and I settle on wistfulness.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't need 'app' for your chores

Full disclosure in four parts: First, I am not a tech-savvy person and never intend to become one. Second, I am convinced that the less technology, the better the life. Third, the technology in my life consists of a laptop, basic cell phone, stereo system, DVD player, flat-screen television, ROKU, and a Digital Video Recorder. Fourth, I do not believe children should have cell phones until they are able to take full responsibility for them, including paying the monthly bill.

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Aldermans arrive in Bulloch in 1816

The name Alderman is well-known throughout Bulloch County, as they were one of the first families to settle in the area. Their ancestral family lines can be traced all the way back to Robert Alderman, who was born in Saint Margarets in Ipswich, England at the end of the 16th century.

Because of the onset of the "Great Depression," Statesboro's tobacco prices dropped from an already low price of 8.9 cents a pound in 1930 to 6.2 cents a pound in 1931, but then rose very slightly to 7.8 cents a pound in 1932.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Georgia Power changing to 'smart' meters

One afternoon last week, I came tootling down my street, only to see a service type truck in my driveway. I hadn't requested any help, so I was beyond curious, whipped into my driveway, and addressed the pleasant looking man in the truck with a pointed question - "Is there something that I can do for you?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - What's your parental mission?

I've been thinking a lot lately about the difference between the way I and almost everyone else in my generation (I was born in 1947, the year the flying saucers returned…just a coincidence) were raised and the way today's kids are being raised. The two ways in question reflect two entirely different mindsets; specifically, two entirely different understandings of the responsibilities involved in being a parent.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make Autumn just awesome

A few leaves in golden yellow and fiery red have turned loose their grasp and fallen to the ground, littering the floor in patchwork colors of fall.

Try some of the celebrations below or make up a few crazy ones of your own. (After all, what could be much crazier than Moldy Cheese Day?)

Column: What about the children?

They are hungry and frightened, but the fear of the unknown isn't nearly as bad as the fear of the known.

The importance of education

It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days! That day of days is when students get a full-time job, move out of the house and begin sending a portion of their vast earnings to good old mom and dad who will spend the rest of their days in frivolity and relaxation.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Nighttime bed-wetting may sort itself out

Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Called to be in, not of, the world

Does God want his children involved in the activities of our world? And if so, just what should that entail? This is a question that ought to be of concern to every Christian.

Take science seriously, but believe

At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find. She said, "It seems to be some kind of language, Mesopotamian or something, printed on a clay tablet. So what's the big deal?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's anxiety may be caused by sudden changes

Q: Since our daughter - now 2 years old - was born, we have lived with my parents. Being the first and only grandchild, she has been the center of attention. Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That's what we've done but it has not stopped. It's now gotten so bad that I've cut her hair because the side she pulls has gotten so ...

Kathy Bradley - Imagine that!

I am lying on my back. The darkness outside the window has a green tinge to it, as though the night has mildewed. If there is a moon or any stars, they are blocked by the limp branches of the mimosa trees and the shed in the backyard - neither of which I can see, both of which I know are there. Also, there is the clothesline where my mother hangs the wet sheets and towels that flap and flap and flap and come back inside dry.
