Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

Did you know it is against the law to dump animals? We recently heard of a lady who did this when she tried to rehome her cat. Sad thing is there was someone trying to help but she apparently got impatient. It is better to take them to the Shelter than to leave them somewhere to fend for themselves. Many die or sicken, due to a lack of food, shelter and cars. How dare you? Don't adopt if you don't anticipate the pet will be forever.

You can't explain away the Gospel

I don't know if you have ever heard of Jesus Seminars. They were the rage in the late 1900's and their guiding principles are very much believed by a lot of so-called Christians today. Many people who think they are Christians believe that most of the major beliefs to which Christians hold are nothing more than myths. In fact, before I was saved in 1991, I called myself a Christian and believed some of what I'm about to tell you.

Luke's Word for the Week

Yesterday was Halloween, or to go back to its roots, "All Hallows Eve."
Of all the questions I get from a variety of folks in a variety of ages, how to handle Halloween is undoubtedly one of them. Many faithful followers of Jesus want to know, "What do we do with Halloween?!?"

Why baseball has lasted 100 plus years

Someone asked me on Monday -- the day after the Boston Red Sox finished their World Series domination over the Los Angeles Dodgers -- if I was a bandwagon fan.
I said yes, I jumped on in 1975.
That year, a young player named Fred Lynn was diving all over the place and hitting the baseball like crazy.

I'm at the end of terrible three's with my youngest little boy, Brendin, and his terrible three's have outdone all my other boys!
Brendin is my feisty little boy. He's cute, which helps his cause, but he's a mean rascal.
Having older brothers has certainly toughened the kid up!

There's something to be said for traditions

Until Sunday, I had never heard of a wetdown or push in ceremony when it comes to new fire trucks. I must say, after hanging out at Nashville's Fire Department Sunday during a special ceremony to celebrate placing their new truck into service - I was impressed.
The rituals are old fashioned, but what is accomplished by participating in the ceremony is impressive.
