Country Pastor column: Pesky pup pilfers pecan pie
You may think your mom makes, or made, the best pecan pie ever. This is understandable, even commendable — but incorrect. Sorry, my mom...

COUNTRY PASTOR: How might we respond to refugees' plight?
"Do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor." ~ Zechariah 7:10 My mother's father came to Ellis Island from Sweden in 1890. His parents settled into northern New York and farmed. He went to college, became a pastor and married my grandmother whose parents also came...

COUNTRY PASTOR: In Christ there is no partisanship!
On a Wednesday at about 9:30 a.m. this past week, I received a text from an old friend who said, "Did you know?! We are going to be honored at half time for our victory at state 20 years ago!" The first thought that ran through my mind was, "What! It's been 20 years already?! Holy...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Our heavenly citizenship
"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." Philippians 3:20 In the verse just prior to this verse the apostle Paul had spoken of those who "set their minds on earthly things." In other words, they live for the here and...

COUNTRY PASTOR: The importance of family
Do any of you feel like you have the perfect family? Has everything about your family turned out the way you thought it would? Has everyone in your family acted and behaved in challenging situations just as you thought they would? If you answered "yes" to these three questions, then...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Are you hot or cold?
In the book of Revelation, chapter 3, verses 15-16, John writes to the church in Laodicea in which Jesus tells them; "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Justice, mercy and grace
"Justice is getting what we deserve. Mercy is not getting what we deserve. Grace is getting what we don't deserve." Just about all of us go through the day with a basic idea that we get what we deserve. Experience gives plenty of reason to support this. When we plan well and work...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Your prime directive is to love
Have you ever heard of this wacky, fun and totally sci-fi franchise known as Star Trek? I have a confession. For the longest time, I could not tell other people that I loved Star Trek, Star Wars and all things science fiction related. (And I guess, now you all know. Oh well...) Well,...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Good and edifying words
"Don't use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. And do not bring sorrow to God's Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Gotta get away

Country Pastor: Tough love is needed sometimes
"Snap out of it!" said my mother from across the room, a verbal slap in the face, and it was just what I needed. My parents were and are the most supportive of parents. Not a day passed when they didn't tell me that they loved me. Not only that, they believed in me. My sister and...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Whoever is wise
"Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the Lord." Psalm 107:43 The 107th Psalm is an amazing summary of God's dealings with His people. It is amazing because throughout the Psalm we see the Israelites in regards to their relationship with God;...
