Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, reading 1 Corinthians 15:13, 14, 20 TLB might just help us to understand that You, Lord, are the Lamb of God as it says: “For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ must still be dead. And if He is still dead, then...

 

Pastor's Corner: A world Without Easter

The Easter Story is one that most of us are very familiar with — we’ve been hearing it retold for years and years. Jesus predicting his own death three times. Jesus, knowing that one of them will betray him that very night, gathers with his...

 

Out Our Way: Who do you say that I am?

Out our way, “the proof is in the pudding” is a common phrase. As I shared some time ago, there are folks who dress like cow hands but are not. But out on the round up, especially when you have some pretty rangey cattle to collect — there is...

 

Pastor's Corner: Holy Week 2019

In the Roman Catholic faith we begin Holy Week on Psalm Sunday the Sunday before Easter. We are all invited to take full part in the celebration of the Lord’s Paschal Mystery with the following words: “Dear brothers and sisters, since the...

 

Out Our Way: The dude at the H-O - Luke 18:9-14

Out our way, most folks who look like cowboys probably are. Even exceptions like me — an amateur greenhorn — have chaps that are discolored and scratched up from working cows in the thickets, boots well-broken-in from hours of riding and a...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, comfort and safety, that’s our motto. It’s so easy to hide our heads in the sand, pretending there are no problems. We’re like everyone else, aren’t we, Lord, wanting to wash our hands of the whole affair. One chap with that...

 

Out Our Way: Even a griz is no match

Out our way, there hasn’t been a grizzly bear sighted in the Bear Paw Mountains for a few generations or more. Yet it hasn’t always been that way. Years ago, when I was manager at the H. Earl Clack Memorial Museum in Havre, however, we got in a...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, it’s April — a new season has arrived! There were new baby animals all over our prairie farm/ranch when we were kids back home. The birds were back. The trees were budding. Tulip, and daffodils and some lovely prairie flowers...

 

Grief Poem - Support & Healing

We need support as we “let go” — sharing the gloom of pain. Folks who’ve been down this lonely road know grief can really drain.   Remembering what used to be can make us laugh or cry. We must let go, but this we know, we’ll see...

 

Pastor's Corner: Who is your neighbor?

Once Jesus was asked what one must do to inherit eternal life (Luke 10:25-37). Jesus turned the question around and asked what that person thought the scriptures said. He responded that we are to love God with our entire being (body, soul, and...

 

Out Our Way: Those who do not know history

Out our way, folks who spend much time on horseback can all tell stories of “wrecks” they have had. Everybody gets thrown from time to time, but some more than others. Especially the ones who refuse to learn from it. I recall a time when Doc...

 

Imagining Heaven: What will we find in heaven?

Many of the ideas and Scriptures used in this article are from the book “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn. 1 Thessalonians 4:13 states, “Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who...

 

Hello, God. It's Me, Mara.

You know, Lord, seasons sometimes just seem to slip on by us. Now that it’s officially spring, it’s so nice to see green grass springing up all over the neighborhood. When the grass dies, we are reminded once again of how short our lives are....

 

Out Our Way: View from the Tiger

Out our way, a common joke was the bumper sticker put out a few years ago for Montana that said, “There’s Nothing Here.” While supporting my ministry in Havre I worked the 4 a.m. to 1 p.m. shift at Walmart, and it was always fun to hear...

 

Imagining Heaven: Hold onto the good to attain Heaven

Many of the ideas and Scriptures used in this article are from the book “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn. As we press on in our study of Heaven we should remember that Paul said that he desired to depart and be with Christ. That notion is foreign to...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, I’ll bet all of us pretty well remember when we were little kids our mama would sneak into our bedroom to check to see if we were asleep, or for sure, to check in on us when we were sick. That’s what parents do, right? Sometimes...

 

Out Our Way: "Charlie's Trailer" - John 12: 31 - 32

Out our way, there is something special about the end of the trail. After a hard day of riding in some often tough country, there finally comes the time to finish and head for home. If there was ever a time I did not need spurs or a quirt with Doc i...

 

Jesus' going without

I so enjoyed the Lenten Season Article No. 1 in last Friday’s Havre Daily News, an article written by Pastor Maggie Lewis. In it she reminded us that this “going without” during the Lenten Season is not really about the food or whatever else...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, not everyone experiences being homesick. Who would have thought that homesickness of a child was homage, respect and praise of a good home life? Such seems to be the case. Thinking way back on school classmates making fun of homesick...

 

Pastor's Corner: What does Lent mean to you?

Some Christian denominations follow a seasonal calendar that includes Christmas and Easter and a lot of other special days and events in between. Lent is the 40 days — not including Sundays — that come before Easter. It starts with Ash Wednesday,...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, going through an old “salted away” pile of papers, it sometimes is fascinating to see what had been stashed. Up popped a poem by Phil Perkins, date unknown. Let’s see what he has to say. Ready? “My daily wish is that we may se...

 

Pastor's Corner: Open your heart and mind during Lent

Lent is a season in the life in the Church when we observe the forty days leading to Jesus’ death on the cross. It began this week with Ash Wednesday when clergy all over the world dispense ashes — usually made by burning the palm fronds...

 

Out Our Way: Old 'new' trails - Isaiah 46:1-4

Out our way, one discovers that there are many trails to follow and not all lead to where you want or need to go. I certainly got mixed up more than a few times and I suspect I was smarter than the cows we had to move, although at times I think...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, many towns have a center where kids of all ages can go after school to do a multitude of activities, including homework. They’re there until someone picks them up to go home. While at these centers, paid staff and volunteers get to...

 

Grief Poem - Most Every Day There's Clouds

We look at clouds most every day; we may see “angel hair.” Clouds block the sun; they might bring rain or snow just everywhere.   Our “mate” is there, they see both sides, mirage may be a “wall.” We look around and watch clouds move;...
