Thanksgiving remains one of America’s most untainted holidays.
  • BUCHANAN/Unserious, trivial nation
    How stands John Winthrop’s “city upon a hill” this Thanksgiving?
  • LOWRY/Roy Moore is pure Steve Bannon
    Roy Moore is the Steve Bannon project in a nutshell.
  • You can’t blame North Korea for playing American presidents for willing suckers. A succession of them applied for the job. President Trump didn’t, and Monday restored North Korea to a deserved place of prominence on the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism.
  • BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES/The first things: In the beginning God
    This week we begin a series in Genesis, so turn to Genesis 1:1-2. Very often we, as Christians, believe that, since the fullness of truth has come in the New Testament, we don't need to fool with the Old Testament anymore.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Thanksgiving 2017
    This is the week we observe Thanksgiving Day. The origin of this day is from the Pilgrims in the area of Plymouth, Massachusetts, in the fall of 1621. They gathered to give thanks to the Lord for their first harvest in the new world. We can learn a lot about the true meaning of Thanksgiving from studying the Pilgrims. We can learn from their reasons to come to America.
  • BUCHANAN/Give Pelosi Congress?
    The day after his “Silent Majority” speech on Nov. 3, 1969, calling on Americans to stand with him for peace with honor in Vietnam, Richard Nixon’s GOP captured the governorships of Virginia and New Jersey.
  • LOWRY/Roy Moore’s reputation depends
    Roy Moore’s reputation depends on denying that he dated teenage girls as a grown man, and yet he can’t quite bring himself to do it.
  • The times are not just “a’changing,” as Bob Dylan sang of them — but they’re unraveling. Dismembering of the culture is at hand, and only the blind and foolish cannot see it. History is trashed and anyone who objects is a bigot, or worse. Pale-skinned Americans are vilified for living innocent lives,
  • DUNCAN/Carried up into heaven
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:50-53, the last few verses of Luke. Luke leaves us with a great passage. He goes right from Jesus’ meeting with the disciples in Jerusalem on Resurrection Sunday to the ascension. When a few weeks before, in the Upper Room, Jesus told them that He was going to be leaving them, they all got sad. Now, He actually leaves, and they’re happy! How in the world could the disciples be happy in the face of the departure of Jesus? Well, there are three things that I want you to see in this passage that will explain why the disciples have responded this way because this passage teaches us about joy, hope, and blessing. We’ll start by looking at verses 52 and 53 and work backwards.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/1 Thessalonians 5:18
    Since we are in the month of Thanksgiving, we will look at that subject for the next several weeks. Our text this week reads; “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” The Spirit of God teaches the souls of believers this lesson of thankfulness. We need our hearts tuned to the praises of God; thankfulness is encouraged under the gospel.
