Imagining Heaven: The end of the earth will be rebirth

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

Out Our Way: Thanks, Mom! - Matthew 23:37

Out our way, a lot of folks raise chickens, and so Jesus’ allusion to a mother hen’s love of other chicks speaks volumes. Up on the Tiger we didn’t have chickens, but we had a lot of mama cows and calves — we saw the same thing. As...

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

Out Our Way: Even so! - Judges 6:15-16

Out our way, we know that working cattle from horseback has its potential dangers. Wise cowhands remind me that if I am going to push cows in the Tiger Ridge, it is not a question of if I will get hurt but when.  Indeed, even my doctor — a fellow...

 

Out Our Way: What is finished?

Out our way, the Easter sales are over and all the unsold candy, chocolate bunnies and lilies are marked down. At the store where I work to supplement my income and help support my son and myself, the back room is filled with non-perishable Easter...

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, grass is turning green in our corner of the earth again. It’s been said that grass is the least pretentious of this world’s everyday plants and the most important to mankind. The young blades are simplicity itself, not the...

 

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... Full story

 

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

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.

Grief Poem - Support & Healing

Out Our Way: Those who do not know history
