Country Pastor column: More like a county fair than a family reunion
The kingdom of God is like a county fair, where all the people come together to celebrate each other's achievements and enjoy each other's company. Though there is competition, there isn't bitterness. Though there is a marketplace, no one goes without. And in and through the whole...

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...

Country Pastor column: God is your Good Shepherd
