Jesus is risen and death does not have the final word

Most of us were captivated by the shocking news of the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore. Due to the quick action of authorities the loss of life was minimized as traffic was halted just before the ship hit the support structure bringing it down instantly. I am still feeling grief for the highway maintenance workers that were unaware of the eminent danger and they unfortunately perished. Without warning they were swept into the inescapable waters of the Patapsco River. This is yet another reminder of the brevity of life.

Remember the first Palm Sunday

0

This coming Sunday (March 24) is a day commonly known to Christians as Palm Sunday. It is a day set aside in remembrance of Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem as the people greeted him waving branches of palm trees. They saw Jesus and because they had seen and heard of His teachings, healings, and miracles they knew in their hearts that He was indeed the one spoken of by the prophet Zechariah who had proclaimed, “Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zech. 9:9)

In Dan Cecil’s editorial column, which appeared in Saturday’s newspaper, Cecil was writing the column as a citizen of Sidney and registered voter, and not as the chairman of the Shelby County Republican Party.

Rebuttal to Mayor Mike Barhorst’s column

I need to rebut some things Mayor Mike Barhorst said in his column entitled “Let’s keep Sidney moving forward” in last Wednesday’s paper. That column was at least the sixth major article totaling nearly 7,000 words in the last six weeks advocating for a tax increase. This rebuttal provides factual corrections to Mike’s column.

A Christian perspective on politics

0

It’s election season again, so it’s a good time to ponder a Christian perspective on politics. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not easy to consistently conduct oneself in a Christ-like manner while engaged in politics, but that’s true of all of life, isn’t it? Jesus never promised it would be easy!

You know, I missed it coming and going. When I was very young, adults had all the perks and all the fun. They got to run the TV, run the household, run the world. Now that I’m approaching the town limits of Codger-ville, kids get all those goodies. Maybe not running the world, but I don’t see how they could do a much worse job than the adults are doing. Yup. Missed it both ways.
