The future begins Nov. 5

I do not pretend to know what will happen on Nov. 4. Here's what I do know: America will never be the same. The good news is that this declaration is not necessarily bad news. America can be better than ever. On Nov. 5 America will begin to define a new normal, the next equilibrium, and reintroduce its democratically certified brand to the world.

What’s a Lutheran?

Do you know how many times I've been asked that question? "What's a Lutheran?" According to ASARB, as of 2000, the percentage of the population in Newton County that called themselves Lutheran was right about zero. Of course, that was well before Abiding Grace started, but still, I was pretty surprised to see that statistic. But the more I talked to people, and the more I told them that I was from Abiding Grace LUTHERAN Church, the more I realized that that statistic was pretty close to right on.

The Church as the Bride of Christ

In Ephesians 2:19, Paul tells us that we are members of God's household. That means we are the family of God. The church is composed of everyone, everywhere, who has turned away from their sins and trusted Jesus Christ as their personal savior, and are walking in a daily relationship of obedience to him and his word. Just as our individual family members are different from one another, so there is great diversity in the family of God. We are many, yet we are one family.

Our thoughts...Happy Halloween

 Halloween is a favorite holiday of Americans because for one day we get to pretend we are something we're not whether it be a princess, a superhero or a bloodsucking monster. Through the years we remember our best costumes, most terrifying tricks and even the house in the neighborhood that gave raisins or the dreaded travel toothbrush.

How would you fill in the following sentence? "This past week I have been most concerned about _____________." Most of us have been wrapped up in our own worlds, worrying about food, clothes, cars, housing, or insurance. We have spent 40 or more hours paying for such things, ten or more hours commuting to and from our jobs. We have spent numerous hours cooking, cleaning, doing yard work and laundry. All important things - but our lives too easily become consumed by all of this worldly stuff.

Crazy campaign coverage

Wow! If you aren't saturated with news of the presidential campaign, you've been living in a cave. TV coverage (as well as print) really took off after the early contests in Iowa and New Hampshire drew great interest and big ratings. That's not to say TV news nets (broadcast and cable) were not prepared to cover this election, but the amount of air-time devoted to the campaigns is directly related to the viewers' interest. Truth be told, these news organizations are primarily businesses always looking to improve ratings because ad revenues are directly related to ratings. So ...
