Madison County once again saw impressive growth the last fiscal year, up $500 million in true value, the Journal reported last week. This is fantastic news!
  • If Mitch McConnell’s Senate can confirm his new nominee for the Supreme Court, President Donald Trump may have completed the capture of all three branches of the U.S. government for the Republican Party.
  • Germany’s Angela Merkel is, her supporters like to gloat, the leader of the free world.
  • George Washington, who saw at first hand the limitations of surmise, conjecture and theory, nailed it. “Reason and experience,” he said, “both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
  • DUNCAN/Faith Wavering
    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 16:1-16. In chapters 12-15 we’ve seen highs and lows in the life of Abram as he struggles with his faith in God’s covenant promises. Unfortunately in Genesis 16 we are at another low point in the life of Abram. This passage has many great lessons for us, and I'd like to look at four of them with you.
    This summer we will depart from Exodus for a while and look at various psalms. Today we will look at Psalm 93. The world we live in seems so uncertain and in upheaval, and indeed our lives seem uncertain. Things can change very quickly. A new day can bring with it a life altering event. This psalm teaches us what is certain in an uncertain world.
  • BUCHANAN/Dems elect a Socialist
    For Nancy Pelosi, 78, Steny Hoyer, 79, and Joe Biden, 75, the primary results from New York’s 14th congressional district are a fire bell in the night.
  • The Nazi analogy has long been recognized as the crudest and dumbest form of argument, but it is enjoying a renaissance.
  • DUNCAN/‘The cutting of the covenant’
    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 15:7-21. In these verses God will confirm His covenant with Abraham by a blood sign. In the first part of the chapter, verses 1-6, God had reiterated His covenant commitments to Abram. Now God confirms His covenant with Abram by a blood sign. Let’s look at how this plays out.
    This psalm is a celebration of God choosing Zion as his dwelling place and defending it from its enemies. Zion is a word used for the people of the Lord. Israel represented the people of the Lord in the Old Testament. The psalm was probably written as a song of praise following an important victory for Israel over an invading enemy. The psalm is a celebration of God’s sovereign protection. One of the main themes of the psalm is that God will get glory both from his people’s deliverance and those who oppose him being destroyed.
  • If Trump’s supporters are truly “a basket of deplorables ... racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” and “irredeemable,” as Hillary Clinton described them to an LGBT crowd, is not shunning and shaming the proper way to deal with them?
