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. Let every shade of autumn, from the brilliant display of colors on the trees to the oranges and yellows of scarecrows, pumpkins, and gourds remind you to capture each moment fall has to offer to make fun memories with your family. 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?)

Kathy Bradley - Monks and soldiers

I finally used my passport. It's been in my safe for eight years, its navy blue cover stiff, the edges of its pages unruffled. It would be difficult to explain why it took so long; the important thing is that now a lovely blue stamp on one of its pages confirms the fact that my feet left the sovereign soil of the United States, landed in Ireland, and returned.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Changing your point of view

Browsing a gift shop the other day, I happened on a decorative plaque on which was inscribed a quote attributed to the late "power of positive thinking" guru Norman Vincent Peale: "Change your thinking, and you change your world."

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son likely untruthful about smoking habits

Q: We just discovered that our 17-year-old is using nicotine. He tells us he's been using for the past several months, smoking two to four cigarettes a day to cope with academic anxiety and relationships. He tends to be socially reserved and has been struggling with academics of late. He appears contrite and remorseful and has said, "I should never have gotten started with this stuff in the first place."

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Half a year gone already!

With school bells just around the corner, the lazy days of summer are slowly slipping away. Along those lines, over half of the days of year 2015 have slipped away, too. July 1 or 2 - according to how precise you are, and if you add that .5-day when you divide 365 in half - is officially the halfway point of the year. Have you had half of the family fun you hope to have this year? How are the family memories for the year adding up?

Kathy Bradley: In the middle -- with snakes

The first snake skin of the season appeared about six weeks ago, stretched out in a long line across the concrete of the carport in almost exactly the same spot as the one I found last year - the one I measured and looked up in the Audubon Guide to confirm its non-venomous nature. Upon spying this new one, I congratulated myself - since there was no one else there to congratulate me - on what amounted to a non-reaction, i.e., "Oh, look. A snake skin. The skin of a snake. Lying within a few feet of my back door. What a ...
