A 120-day construction moratorium in Gluckstadt on liquor stores, convenience stores and storage units makes sense in what could quickly become the Wild Wild West of development.
  • DUNCAN/‘A parting of the ways’
    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 13:1-18. The lifelong quest of faith in which Abram has embarked receives yet another test in this passage. It receives a test in the challenge of dwelling with Lot and then eventually separating from him. But in contrast to that sorry spectacle of Genesis 12:10-20 where Abram's cowardice is apparent, in this passage, Abram passes his test with flying colors. I'd like you to look at four different scenes in this passage.

  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 14:15-20
    The Red Sea event is one of the great events of the Old Testament. It has obvious gospel symbolism. Moses is a great Savior sent by God to lead his people out of bondage into life with God.

The enemies Christ destroys for his people are the devil, sin, death, and the curse of this world.

  • EDITORIAL/Remembering D-Day
    Allied forces 74 years ago yesterday stormed the beaches at Normandy to eventually save France, the whole of Europe and the rest of Western Civilization — nay, the world — from Hitler's tyranny. Crude technology (compared to today) played a role, but so did the hand of God and the weather.
  • LOWRY/Christian Baker 1, Bureaucrats 0
    In the closely watched Masterpiece Cakeshop case, the Supreme Court dealt a blow against the small-mindedness that so often characterizes the self-appointed minders of social justice in America.
  • BUCHANAN/It’s Trump’s GOP now
    “There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party,” John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. “The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.”
  • EDITORIAL/May we never forget
    Every day could be Memorial Day, but the last Monday in May is set aside as a day of reflection and remembrance of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to country.
