Reader Opinion: Recess is over
Jesus said, "I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Matt. 18:3. Some say that alone qualifies me! I want to wake up and see what is happening in this country since Trump was elected president and pray...

The fool said in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1a. "For you (God) formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul (all souls, whether admitted or not!) knows...

Local leaders speak out against pause in travel

Reader Opinion: Happy, blessed New Year
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or nakedness or danger or sword? For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything...

Reader Opinion: Trust is in Jesus
"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father but by Me." John 14:6b. God bless your 2017! Again as a Christian, I feel like a butterfly unwrapped from its cocoon with hope for America, instead of Hillary's death and taxes presidency. I am ashamed of Obama's UN...

Reader Opinion: Thoughts for Christmas
People of faith have always asked their god for help in time of need. It may be unemployment or sickness, it may be a time in their lives when they feel overburdened and stressed out. It may be a time when they need direction because they are confused and somewhat disoriented as to...

Reader Opinion: Christmas' origins
"But who do you say that I am?" Matt. 16:15b Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and lots of reasons to be. Amen. As for the verse, we do this every Christmas, not so much Easter, we know who and what Jesus was about at Easter and, treated like a secret, we would rather not talk...

Reader Opinion: Choose carefully
No matter who is president, you know deep in your heart that Jesus is still king and in him we all have a part. Some might choose the donkey and some might choose an elephant, but there are many here among us who choose the lamb, who is also known as the Lion of Judah. Dick Draper...

Reader Opinion: Hitting the nail on the head
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed, always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 2 Cor. 14:8-10.

Reader Opinion: Rise up
Sunday I heard a powerful sermon from a wise retired pastor, based on Jesus' entering the Temple and driving out the money changers, calling them a "den of thieves!" He pointed out that the religious leaders of Jesus' day not only held spiritual power over the people, but civil power...
