  • A tribute to love and friendship by Richard Gammill

    On Thursday morning, the telephone rang. My wife, Jan, looked at the caller's name on the screen and handed the phone to me. We both knew what to expect. "Rich, this is LaRue. Berry's gone: he passed away on Tuesday. His service is on Saturday. I wanted to make sure you knew." The service would be in Aurora, Texas, 650 miles from home, with visitation on Friday evening. When I hung up the phone, Jan said, "You have to be there." A couple of hours later, I pulled out of the driveway and began my …

  • A foolish mistake - or was it? by Allyn Schuyler

    Years ago, I made an epic fool out of myself. I called to check on an ill friend and asked her if she needed anything. "Milk!" she said, excitedly. "I would really appreciate it if you could stop by the store for me." Happy to do this little thing for her, I hurriedly jumped into the car. The milk was put away and I stayed to visit a while.

We pray for a semblance of harmony as we search for solutions where none are found. We are a country established upon b…

There is a “Hallelujah Day” coming soon on July 13. We will meet in person at Crossroads Church. There will be social distancing of sorts, etc. per church request of air-hand-waves, elb…

  • A mustard seed in a yellow dress by Allyn Schuyler

    When I look back on the choices I made once I left college, I am not proud. I learned, I enjoyed and was good at the hospitality business and soon rose up the ranks, but my time in that industry only pushed me further away from my Christian roots. I was stepping off the path God had designed for me, but I was a strong Texas woman, and my will prevailed. One day I noticed two older women strolling across the hotel lobby. They were gray-haired and spoke English with a foreign lilt. It could've bee…
