  • Breaking the stigma: nurturing mental health in community and faith

    Charles Wells, Alva Church of the Nazarene|Apr 26, 2024

    In this article, coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Month in May, I want to emphasize a critical issue that resonates deeply with many of us: mental health. Mental health has emerged as a prominent concern in society, including within the church community. It's imperative that we no longer turn a blind eye to this pressing matter. The statistics paint a stark picture: over 50 percent of pastors grapple with some form of mental health condition. Moreover, there's a growing body of evidence linking issues like depression, anxiety, and other...

  • The power of mustard

    Steve Hamm, College Hill Church of Christ|Apr 26, 2024

    I love the condiment mustard a whole lot! I love mustard on hot dogs, brats, scrambled eggs, and many other foods. Our Lord Jesus Christ loves mustard as well, so much so that he compares the kingdom of heaven to a mustard seed in Matthew, Mark and Luke. Jesus uses the tiny size of the mustard seed when planted, and the resulting growth to a tree-sized plant, to indicate the powerful growth of the church. Jesus again uses the tiny size of the mustard seed in Matthew, Chapter 17, and compares it to the power of one’s faith. The disciples c...

  • Rangers together atop rodeo standings

    NWOSU Sports|Apr 26, 2024

    ALVA – With one rodeo remaining on the Central Plains Region schedule, things are looking pretty good for Northwestern Oklahoma State University steer wrestlers. The top five men in the regional standings are Rangers, and the odds of all three bulldoggers traveling to the College National Finals Rodeo in June are pretty good. Northwestern proved its dominance again this past weekend at the Fort Hays (Kansas) State University rodeo, where seven of the 12 cowboys in the final round were Rangers. “I think we’ve improved a whole lot by bulld...

  • Sometimes ignorance is bliss

    Jim Scribner|Apr 26, 2024

    One evening last week I ran across a post selling a nice looking 2012 car with 77,000 miles on it for $2,500. I had a friend looking for a car and this would fit the bill. One of my other friends was selling it, and I trusted them. The person was out of town and needed a $500 deposit to hold it for me. I told her that I would just pay her when she got back from her trip. She insisted that I put up the deposit and told me of four or five ways to get the money in her hands. I told her I didn't...

  • Nothing civil about it

    Roger Hardaway|Apr 26, 2024

    Every year when April rolls around, it is time to start thinking of pleasant things like the start of a new baseball season and the optimistic weather of springtime with new growth signaling that winter has been left behind. For U.S. historians, however, April is also a time to remember and reflect upon the most divisive and terrible event in America’s past – the so-called Civil War. That conflict began on April 12, 1861, and formally ended on April 9, 1865. And while new flowers, green grass an...

  • Doubt does not equal unbelief

    Doug Little|Apr 26, 2024

    This past Friday and Saturday evenings I attended a men’s conference in Laverne. Somewhere around 75 men from different churches and different communities came together and enjoyed fellowship, worship and scripture. It was a great couple of evenings of God’s word with great speakers. Two statements were made during the weekend that will stay with me for a long time. The first one that got my attention was “Doubt does not equal unbelief.” Those words really hit home for me. My faith is strong, for sure stronger than it has ever been. However...

  • Locked up and secure – or scary?

    Andy and Renie Bowman|Apr 26, 2024

    Do they bother you? Do walls and fences cause claustrophobia in you? How about locked doors and gates? Do they bring about a fierce need to find the key and escape? The obvious answer for most of us is, “Well, it depends. Am I trapped inside those barriers, or protected by them? That’s totally logical thinking. But the problem is that we humans are not always logical, especially when it comes to our freedom. One tiny whiff of a suspicion that we are trapped in a situation and some of us can beg...

  • Escaping boring conversations

    Arden Chaffee|Apr 26, 2024

    Have you ever been dragged into a one-sided chat that droned on with no end in sight? There is an art to extracting yourself graciously without insult or injury. According to Elizabeth Bernstein in the Wall Street Journal, “A conversation is like driving on the freeway. There are certain points where you are allowed to enter or exit without doing considerable damage.” Research has shown that in just 2 percent of conversations, people manage to stop talking at the same time. To survive, rats pra...
