No name, no address, no interest

Actions, choices form unbreakable chains

No objection to being treated like an object

Not everything in life is what it seems
Over the years, we have all heard statements that, although shared in earnest, we never really came to believe. Like when my father would tell me the spanking I was about to receive would hurt him more than me. I never saw him rub his backside after it was over. Another statement...

Take some time to uproot life’s weeds
Pastor Mark Weeding is my least favorite garden chore. Crawling along on hands and knees, pulling out numerous, unwanted plants can turn an hour into a week for me. It’s not just the tediousness of the job; there are certain weeds with which I would rather not deal. Dandelions have...

Pastor Mark When John D. Whidden, author of "Ocean Life in the Old Sailing Ships Days," was a 12-year-old boy, his appetite for his grandmother’s pies got the best of him. Known to store a number of her pies in a pantry, Whidden gained entrance for a taste of the delicacies. Realizing...
