50 Years Ago…Just Yesterday

 

Written by Scott Taylor

I have heard so much in my life about the year 1968.  50 years ago.  I was not alive then.  Nevertheless, I marvel at some of things that happened 50 years ago.


The Easter Hee-Haw…

Written by Scott Taylor

(with special thanks to Rev. Frank Stith, Rev. Sandy Giles, and David LaMotte)

A short list of Frank’s favorite funny one-liners from the world of Country Music:

I sold a car to a guy who stole my girl, but it don’t run so we’re even.

Mama get a hammer (There’s a fly on Daddy’s head).

If the phone don’t ring, you’ll know it’s me.

How can I miss you if you won’t go away.


WE CALL IT HOLY WEEK

By: Rev. Keith Turman

I wonder what they called it.

Maybe some called it holy on parade day. Maybe their hosannas were shouted with a deep sense that something beautiful and sacred was unfolding right before their eyes. But the week was a mess.  

Anger. Fear. Confusion. Greed. Dishonesty. Betrayal. Violence. Suffering. Death.

The Holy Week they experienced delivered every kind of pain at every possible turn.

A Place to Pray

by Keith Turman

 

A restless

Move from lamp to lamp

Just a comfortable place

A good chair actually

To peel away the layers and

Know

 

What good is the coffee

What good is the quiet

If there is no place to settle

My eyes in enough

Light to hear the

Words

 

That crack eternity and

Fill the empty space


The Power of Interconnectedness

Original Sinner…

 

Written by Scott Taylor

You should know that I am quite the sinner.  I know it and now you do too!

I hope that some of you can relate.
