    Nothing on my shopping list has as many different products from which to choose as those that greet me in the toothpaste aisle. Any one of them would probably do a good job, but I spend considerable time trying to decide which would produce a sparkling smile most comparable to that of the most attractive advertisement models on TV.

    There are many memorable songs from the 1949 musical, South Pacific. The musical was so successful that it was turned into a movie in 1958. It is still popular with some audiences. The musical was entertaining and broke ground in the way we look at each other and with whom we might fall in love.

    Sometimes I feel as if I am too old to be of service to God. Then as I think back on my life, some of the most memorable times and experiences have been with older people. I loved my grandfather’s and grandmother’s story telling that contained a wealth of knowledge, that only now can I appreciate. I could see even as a child that those old folks had done more and knew more than I ever would Being old, I now see is not a waste of time, but is simply a storehouse of experience and knowledge gathered from a long life lived into this present time and this present place.

    Upon reading the title, any resident of Green Street may be alarmed at discovering that her hometown is under attack. Yet the attack is not physical, but verbal, like all the best attacks are; a violence that is not actually violent, a sword of the tongue that cannot harm a hair on one’s skin, but can easily get under one’s skin. And some unfortunate laceration, taken some time ago, was the cruel but unclever epithet to describe a citizen or denizen of Lewisburg: “Loserburg.” The whole point of this is not to say that Lewisburg has everything to do with success, otherwise; I intend to divulge our secret, which is twofold: to embrace its failure when we compare it to an ideal town or city, and to succeed on entirely different, but more important, terms, which is the secret of every town worth living in.

    Tulip has the “Question of the day!”

    Recently Christians celebrated Pentecost Sunday. In Acts 2:1-4, we see one sign of the Holy Spirit’s coming is wind. Wind can be really good. It keeps things moving along, such as weather and relief from the sun. But it also can be scary. On June 3rd, 1989, a tornado moved through Hopkinsville that I saw from my car seat as a kid. It was scary, but I admit a spark of wonder flew through my mind! What does this mean?

    A most touching animal event took place in the lot in front of my house recently.

    Our worship of God is the most humble and reverent action to our Creator for the debt we owe Him. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth and all that are therein and He also created us in his own image. (Gen. Chapter I)

    One can’t help but wonder what the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven might be. In the Lord’s Prayer we pray, “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done…” The prayer suggests that all is well in heaven and that we should seek that presence of God within us in this world.

    Good grammar speaks volumes, no pun intended, and I fear we are losing that emphasis as abbreviated messages multiply in our present-day communication world. Yet, we do need to seek first the intent of the sender and not allow flaws in presentation to distort the meaning.

    We attend worship regularly, we give generously of our means to support the good works of the church, we live godly lives and do good unto all men, yet bad things happen to us. Why, we may ask, are Christians living good lives and doing good in the name of the Father, having bad things happen to them? As always, let us look to the bible, as we can only know as much as God’s word tells us, for we are forbidden to add to or take from His Holy Word (Rev. 22:18-19). Anything beyond this is simply human conjecture and therefor meaningless.

    Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Often that appears to be true. Looking to certitudes that have been proven false, ancient cosmologies thought the world was flat. Later the world was discovered to be round. But as late as the 17th century the Roman Catholic Church condemned Galileo for supporting the theory that the earth rotated around the sun rather than vice versa.
