Fond memories of VBS

Hearing about the need for workers for Vacation Bible School (VBS) recently brought to mind those years my sister and I spent some of the summer with our great-grandmother in Kansas. Grandma, whose name was Ora Etta Cylinda Tredway, always took us to VBS. While she worked preparing and passing out the snacks we enjoyed all the fun games and learning about Jesus. There were no themes but learning was fun and we got to play some fun games outside. How different it is now. The one constant though has been teaching from the scriptures and making it fun. The planning is happening already and those who volunteer to help are always looking for more workers. I’m sure there are lots of young people who have fond memories from their VBS years.

Cooking with seafood, a natural healthy choice

Since prehistoric times, man has seized a spear, fashioned a rod with string or tied a net together to pull a meal from streams and oceans. Even today, in some cultures, fishing is much more meaningful than just providing food. It’s a way of life, handed down and etched into the heredity.

Living life by the scriptures

A few weeks ago I wrote an article that was titled, “What would your scripture look like?” I began the article with the following: As I was reading my devotions for the day, an interesting question was in one of them, “Our lives may be the only Bible some people read.” This certainly stood out and made me think about my witness and how I can make a difference in the people that I meet each day, with the people I encounter daily or occasionally. How can we witness for Christ in every area of our lives? Full Story »

Getting scientific, down at the mill

Getting scientific, down at the mill

On the corner of U.S. 290 and Lady Bird Lane in the heart of Johnson City, is a beautiful building with a unique twist; it is both modern and rustic. It began in 1880 as a gristmill and cotton gin. In 1901, it was retrofitted to a flourmill and finally to a feed mill, that remained operational over 50 years. After the feed mill closed in 1980, the iconic landmark was converted to a restaurant and entertainment complex, but it also closed. Full Story »
