  • The ‘broken beautiful’

    After the March 2011 tsunami in Japan that killed nearly 20,000 people, a woman named Sue Plumb Takamoto was out clearing debris in a field in the coastal city of Ishinomaki.
    As she picked among the ruins, her eyes kept catching sight of the colorful shards of broken pottery, the only remains of the city’s tearooms and kitchens.

  • Life lessons in the mud

    Although I personally don’t get the fascination with running races through mud, these days lots of people do.
    A few years ago, my two daughters did a mud race together. My oldest daughter, Alison, said the obstacles freaked her out and she doesn’t like climbing cargo nets and was leery of leaping over fire.

  • Submit to spiritual authority

    “Without faith it is impossible to please him,” proclaims the Bible in the 11th chapter of Hebrews. These words should penetrate all of our hearts as I would be the first to admit that the measure of faith that God has so graciously given to me could stand to be built upon. However, there is a particular area in our lives in which God has purposed for our faith to grow, and that can be found in the words spoken by the Centurion of Matthew 8:5-10.

  • The good life

    Christians would get a lot further with their political and cultural recommendations if they were known as living examples of the good life, the life well-lived, and a morally flourishing and thus joyful community. But what is this “good life?” To begin with we should act as a community of grace, and as Christians we are uniquely positioned to demonstrate.

  • Emotions can be a roller coaster at times

    There are times when I feel like that I am on cloud nine and can’t help but hum the theme song from “The Greatest American Hero” (you know, the “believe it or not, I’m walking on air…”) ‘But, then while in mid song, for no substantial reason (like being out of coffee!!! though some might argue that) my emotions take a tail spin and then I am in the Eeyore mode singing the “Gloom, Despair and Agony on me” song from Hee Haw.  Now, let’s apply this to our faith.

  • Williamstown host CC meet

    Runners faced the coldest day yet in this cross country season as they arrived at the Williamstown Invitational on Oct. 4 at Williamstown High School.

    Thirty-six schools were represented by over 700 runners. Many were huddled in blankets as they waited for their race to start, and a few even ran wearing hats and gloves to stay warm.
    The day began at 8 a.m. with an open 5K race with six participants.
    The overall winner was 14-year-old home school student William Perkins.
