Terry Ward column: Sore feet are feeling little soggy, too

Country Pastor column: 'Summer' is for 'Sabbath' and Sabbath means to rest
The programming year for most of us pastors has just come to a close. This is also true for most of our ministry partners, as Sunday School classes (for both adults and children), along with most of our other programming, often takes a break for the summer. This isn't a bad thing....

Literally Lorna column: Downsizing -- Oh, what a relief!
Would you believe me if I told you downsizing your life and living quarters could be a huge relief? Most likely not too many would agree with me. A year ago my husband and I downsized our living quarters from 3,000 square feet to 800 square feet. I was wondering how this was going...

Greg Andrews/Leon Morrison column: Soil conservation and soil health
Soil conservation has been around since 1934, when the first contour strips were laid out near Coon Valley, Wis. Since then, most of the highly erodible land (HEL) eventually had some contour strips with hay in the crop rotation. The goal was to reduce erosion and conserve the soil....

Country Pastor column: Reclaiming evangelicalism
Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and said, "Athenians, I see how extremely religious you are in every way. For as I went through the city and looked carefully at the objects of your worship, I found among them an altar with the inscription, 'To an unknown god.' What therefore...

Country Pastor column: God is your Good Shepherd
I can't count the number of times I've watched a movie and the extras are all dressed in black while the pastor/priest reads "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death..." [Psalm 23:4, KJV]. So there tends to be a tendency to think of Psalm 23 as the "death psalm."...

Literally Lorna column: Which pump should I choose?
When I recently pulled into Kwik Trip to fill my tank, I noticed the middle octane (88) was cheaper by 5 cents than the 87 octane I usually use. What the? I literally paused and didn't know what to do. I'm your average "I can do it" kind of gal, but I knew putting the wrong fuel...
