  • Out To Pastor: Why I am suspicious of all yard sales

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    One of the passions that I really do not have is going to yard sales. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is another story.

    America is at a historic crossroad. Secularists are trying to push God from the public square. They reject His beneficial action upon society. But without God, where will our leaders get the wisdom to solve the great problems we face?

  • OUT TO PASTOR: One good deed deserves a kick in the pants

    Have you ever had the feeling that any good deed you try is counteracted by a good swift kick in the pants?
    Last week a friend phoned, asking me if I could help a friend of his who was moving from Florida to Virginia and had nobody to help him. Immediately I agreed to help all I could. After hanging up my phone, I wondered what I had gotten myself into.

  • The birthdays God has given me – in spite of myself

    “Where am I?”
     “Southeast Memorial, Intensive Care Unit,” the nurse said, opening the window blinds.
    “Why?” I shielded my eyes from the glaring sun. “Was I in an accident?”
    She walked to the side of my bed and began a new IV bag. “You took a bottle of pills. Don’t you remember?”
