Pastor's Corner: What is truth

As seen on a church reader board a number of years ago: “What is truth? Ask God — She has the answer.” Can you imagine the stir that created. While no one asked the person who put it up what was behind it, there was talk about God and the sign...

 

Out Our Way: A new way

Out our way, Charlie and I tended to ride the same trails up on the Tiger Ridge and I was becoming fairly familiar with the area. But one day he took the trail in the opposite direction. To me it was a whole new trail and I saw vistas and things I...

 

On Theology and the Christian Life

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, as we check our calendar, we notice that some months are full of birthdays of special folks we know, many that we’re related to! Their ages range from newborn to elderly. How awesome is that!? It’s unique, when we think about it,...

 

Out Our Way: Christ's cavvy

Out our way, Charlie and I only used two or three horses for working cattle. Charlie usually rode Jet, a solid bay who was solid and steady, and he often allowed me to ride “Freckles,” an Appaloosa  who was excitable and needed a firm hand. And...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, when sitting upon a hilltop surveying all within eyesight, one might wonder about the river meandering below; who knew how much water to put into it, what is the water’s source and what is its destination. Then along comes a merry...

 

Grief Poem - Endure All Things

On Theology and the Christian Life: The Reformation: A Brief History

For some, October begins the season of harvest. For others, October marks the swift slide to Christmas. Children think only of candy that will rot the teeth. While Halloween has staked out its place as the punctuation mark for the month of October,...

 

Out Our Way: Charlie's way

Out our way, I always let Charlie lead because he knew the trails. I suspect the cattle did as well, but not necessarily which trail. You see, they knew where the trails were going but they didn’t always know where they were going. But Charlie did...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, this is the time of year where there is a hint of fall in the air, and due to our changing of seasons, sometimes the sky looks like watered-down milk, and we might even wonder out loud: what happened to the blue sky? And then there...

 

Out Our Way: Beware of the barrow ditch - Proverbs 4:27

Out our way, the roads are usually two lanes at most and on either side is a barrow ditch. Out our way, some folks call ’em “Borrow” ditches as they “borrowed” the soil from them to form the raised road bed. Works for me. Most times, you...

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, it’s been quite a while ago now, but no fooling, there have actually been columns and reviews written about “So much depends … .” So much depends on … how we choose to look at our life. We can wake to a dark and dreary day a...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

Lord, You do have a sense of humor. Remember when a few of us girls were together chatting over coffee about getting our hair cut that afternoon, when one of the gals shared that her devotional that morning was called “The Price of Beauty?” Yes,...

 

Out Our Way: But I got old Doc

Out our way, long days are not uncommon — and even when it’s something you love doing, you can get tired. Charley and I had been pushing cows all day on Tiger Ridge and I do mean all day. I couldn’t see that it bothered Charlie, but I sure was...

Out Our Way: Does it matter who the boss sends?

When Charley and I worked the boss’ herd on the Tiger Ridge, I don’t recall he was ever too concerned about which of us did what — just as long as we got the job done. Sometimes, Charley rode flank and I pushed — now and then I would go after...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, September is the month of a whole lot of things from grapes to lovely skies, crows cawing diligently, sunshine and winds and Summer clouds, besides, putting up the hay. Who could not deny that this same putting up of hay is something...

 

Grief Poem - We Need God's Grace

Another one has left this earth; their leaving breaks our heart. It tears us up and we’re afraid, it’s rough to be apart.   To cope with loss, the empty nest, we struggle and feel pain. Grieving takes time, there are some days our lives just see...

 

Out Our Way: Who? Me?

Out our way, you meet some unlikely folks pushing cows — and the most unlikely of them all was yours truly. A mediocre rider at best, even with gentle ole Doc, I managed to get bucked off — or was it I fell off? — with alarming regularity....

On Theology and the Christian Life - Cultivating Catechesis, Part One

A 19th century Lutheran pastor by the name of Theodore Emmanuel Schmauk once wrote, “The Lutheran Church is bound to apply the grace of God to her members from the cradle to the grave.” At St. Paul and Zion the time of year has come when Sunday...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, the first day of school has arrived. But where has the summer gone? We surely didn’t get everything done that we had planned to do this summer … not yet, anyway. Then once in school, how can we put our minds to the task of...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

You know, dear Lord, as we grow old and our hair turns gray, what’s in the future for us of clay? Gone are the days of vigor and vim, our limbs are weak and our eyes are dim. Where’s the excitement of yester-year, where is the future that once...
