Pastors Corner - Being both a lion and a lamb

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. I learned this bit of wisdom when I was in early grade school, coloring a calendar for the transitional month copied onto a piece of green paper. My teacher explained how this meant that typically...

 

OUT OUR WAY:  The Wrong Trail

Out our way, Charlie trusts me to ride drag when we are pushing the herd. It is not only because he can ride flank and point far better than I, but because he knows I have learned to be patient. As you may recall, on my first roundup in Wyoming, one...

 

Out Our Way: The chinooks of God - 1 Kings 19

Out our way, Charlie on Jet and me on Doc loved to ride the Tiger Ridge and work cows. But only in the good weather. Come February when the Alberta Clippers rage and the cows are calving, we were well content to stay inside and let other roam the...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

Snowmen got made, crooked or straight, and two were rather wide. What fun to be outdoors that day and view the countryside. Laughter, snowballs, oh, what a day to play in fresh white snow. A game, a race, how about snowballs? You catch the one...

 

Imagining Heaven - Be sure your name is in the book

Many of the ideas and scriptures used in this series on Heaven are taken from the book “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 states “Test everything. Hold on to the good.” In many of my sermons I instruct the listeners to not...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, there’s a cute story about a young couple shopping in a second-hand store. The gal was looking for a frying pan like her grandmother had used. They passed several departments. As the gal passed the stuffed animals, she said, “Oh,...

 

Pastor's Corner: You are beloved

One of my favorite books/movies that I have always returned to throughout various chapters of my life is “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert. In the middle of personal crisis, she embarks on three different journeys in order to find herself. F...

 

Out Our Way: Cowboy up and trust - Isaiah 40:1-9

Out our way, Charlie and others said that when you take to hard riding, it is not a question if you will get hurt, but when. My pard was badly hurt in a wreck when Freckles was spooked by a dog coming suddenly out of the tall grass while he and...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, many folks get depressed during the cold winter months. But here’s a good word: did we know that praise combats depression? It’s been suggested that we count our blessings; let’s give it a try. Following is a list of just a few...

 

Out Our Way: The foolish woman - Proverbs 14:1

Out our way, one learns to listen to the wisdom of those who know what they are doing. It saves time and possibly some broken bones. Charlie taught me that when first approaching a herd of cattle that have been out on their own for a time, one goes...

 

Pastor's Corner: Pastor's Corner: 'Godliness Training'

Here it is, February already! I wonder how folks are doing with their new year’s resolutions as they apply to physical training or exercise? I also wonder if followers of Christ have made some resolutions with regards to godliness training? The...

 

Grief Poem: Graduation Day

We woke to see the shining moon and smell the Winter Air. We checking the stars and wispy clouds, but we know you’re not there.   You flew away, left us behind — Oh! What a time to go! You flew away, that’s what you did, but oh, we miss you...

 

Out Our Way: The sound of silence

Out our way, the noise in town can be distracting. Kids gunning pickup trucks at 70 mph in a 25 mph zone, the heavy trucks along the highway, the freight trains that ply the Hi-Line section of track hourly, all contribute to the noise. No wonder...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

The deer stopped in, they nosed about, we’d not seen deer for weeks! They check the trees because they know, crabs aren’t on mountain peaks. They spied water in the birdbath, they all needed a drink. Twelve deer drank fast, bumping their heads,...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, it’s fascinating when friends share a picture of sunsets, sunrises, and intriguing cloud shapes that they have seen and enjoyed, especially when they entitle it, “View from a front porch rocking chair.” Sharing the photos with...

 

Out Our Way: God's cell towers - Isaiah 40:31

     Out our way, the use of cell phones can be limited. I was kidding Charlie about being glad Doc could not be wired from a phone — when his cell phone went off. Big Mike was calling about a missing bull. But where we were in Tiger Ridge did...

 

Out Our Way: We pointed them north

Out our way, many ranches have both a summer and a winter pasture. You graze the herd on the one for a season while allowing the other to replenish itself an be ready when the season changes. Twice a year, the owner of the brand, Big Mike, sent...

 

Pastor's Corner: Week of Christian Unity

I have the privilege of writing the religious page article just in time to announce the upcoming annual Week of Christian Unity, which starts this Sunday, Jan. 20. I always look forward to this time of year because I feel very blessed to be part of...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, sometimes it just happens that there is a special day, a day when we notice a couple dozen wonderful things to cherish and treasure and enjoy. If we borrow an ingenious word, we can call that list, life saviors. Then up pops a list to...

 

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, we’re already into January but have any of us made resolutions? If that word means to make “a firm decision on something,” how come we frail humans break our resolutions as fast as we make them? Maybe we should choose more...

 

Evangelists at Havre Assembly of God next week

Havre Daily News staff The Havre Assembly of God Church is inviting people to hear a special ministry next week. Evangelists Roy and Arlene Brewer will be the guests of the church Sunday through Wednesday. The Brewers come with a varied background...

 

Pastor's Corner: "A little off plumb"

If you were to ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you that this pastor is just a little off plumb with modern Christianity with some of his thinking and beliefs. Think about this for a moment, I believe that there is a preamble to both the...

 

Out Our Way: The Tiger Ridge sermon

Out our way, folks sometimes drive down U.S. Highway 2 along the Hi-Line and remark “There’s nothing much to see.” I have had visitors make that statement to me as they pass through, but I just smile, for some of the most spectacular scenery...

 

Out Our Way: God is love - 1John 4:7-8

Out our way, nature preaches a sermon daily to those who have the eyes, ears, minds and spirit to pay attention. Maybe it’s I because I am a pastor that I am so aware it is all around, but I know Charlie understood it as well. We would ride up a...

 

Pastor's Corner: Commit yourself to practicing religion

Luke 2:22-24: “When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took (Jesus) to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male is to be consecrated...
