Bo Wagner: Some answers I want once I get to Heaven
Posted: November 16, 2014

Some verses of Scripture are at once both handy and frustrating.

Posted: November 11, 2014

Bo Wagner: A real life monster
Posted: October 26, 2014

They crouch unseen in the shadows, growling to the impressionable minds of children. They lurk under beds, they haunt dreams, they scar imaginations. Monsters are very real to us, at least when we are children.

Kaye Ella Steadman: Halloween revisited
Posted: October 25, 2014

We Americans are an impatient and hasty bunch of people. Other countries criticize us as being lazy but that's just not true. As a rule we do several things at one time and that's because we're impatient and always in a hurry. Patience and endurance belongs to the previous generation I think.

Joe Phillips: I’ve come halfway
Posted: October 18, 2014

This is a degrading event. I entered into this with my eyes open and will see it through. Last week I brought home a jug of buttermilk and I’m going to learn to drink the stuff and like it, or drink that half-gallon and not whine about it. Much.
