  • Sing a Song of Christmas

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Dec 15, 2022

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Whether this will be the most wonderful column of the year remains to be seen. As long as I do not get coal in my stocking from the editor, I will be satisfied. I started with that sentence because it is also the title of a song written the year I was born (1963) and popularized by Andy Williams. Many people would agree with the sentiment of the song. I love Christmas and Christmas music. In the paragraphs below I will note some merry melodies and consider how they relate to Christmas. It has...

  • Thought for the Week

    Dec 15, 2022

    The Journey is nearing its end. It’s been thousands of years since it began. We have no idea how far it is from Heaven to Earth so we don’t know how long the journey has been. We just know it is a desperate journey. As in any love-relationship, there is the chance the love will be unrequited or rejected. I’m not sure how to describe God’s love-relationship with Israel. Certainly, He still loves them. Not all Israel loves God. But there is a True Israel that has over the centuries loved...

    KATHY MELLOTT, For the Herald|Dec 15, 2022

    It’s late fall, the mid-1950’s, an early cold front has brought snow flurries and sharp wind to the region. A group of little girls huddle at a front window of an old farmhouse waiting for the mailman to stop. This certainly has to be the day that it arrives. It’s been anticipated for so long. And arrive it does, the latest edition of the Sears Roebuck Christmas catalog. It was filled with a cornucopia of wonderfulness that, for the little girls, would never find its way to their house, but it was so much fun just to look and dream. This...

  • Seven Weeks of Dry Flies

    Dec 15, 2022

    I realize the middle of December is not a typical time to discuss trout fishing. However, I enjoyed some beautiful days in the outdoors this autumn, many of them on various streams. I think fly-fishing is the most enjoyable outdoor sport but sometimes think the most effective method of fly-fishing, nymph fishing, can be mind-numbing. Not so with dry-fly fishing. It would be like archery hunting with a crossbow compared to hunting with a longbow. This autumn I enjoyed dry-fly fishing for trout fr...
