Make an Imprint

This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day. As I thought about what I wanted to include in this article, I kept returning to a pretty humorous one-liner I once read that went something like this: A mother took her young son out shopping. In one of the stores, a clerk handed the little boy a lollipop.…

Broken

Kintsugi. You may not have heard of it, but I promise it’s a real word.  It is used to describe the Japanese process of restoring broken ceramic pieces.  Started around 500 years ago, the process is when a busted ceramic piece like a pitcher, bowl or plate is painstakingly pieced back together.  However, instead of…

Here They Come by Steve Tandy

As most of you read this, women from all over the country are on a pilgrimage to Wichita.  There are planes, vans,   buses, and automobiles full of them all headed for Hartman Arena.  They are spending significant money for the transportation, meals, and lodging required to spend two or three nights in our fine city. …

The Greatest of These Is Love…

Today is no special day, so to speak. Today is just an ordinary day in which I woke up, talked to God awhile, talked to my husband while drinking coffee, began to look over the schedule of the day – again asking God to enter each event, and then began the race determined by the…

Faith Issues and Facial Tissues

Did anybody else notice how that wild, unpredictable Kansas weather decided to rear its ugly head last week? If the “batten-down-the-hatches” style winds and enormous ash-raining grass fire didn’t get your attention, then certainly the “I’m-dreaming-of-a-white-EASTER” did! And I thought Texas’ weather had an identity crisis! Well just as erratic as the weather, so my…

Clean Slate Day

On March 4 the Wichita Bar Association held the first ever “Clean Slate Day” in our city. On this day lawyers and other volunteers helped people who are economically disadvantaged get certain eligible criminal convictions expunged through a simplified process at no cost. News reports said 400-500 people showed up to take advantage of this…

Builders by Toby Levering

The church office area has been under construction for a few weeks now as we re-arrange our space. If you are in the office area, you’ll now notice a longer hallway, new doors, new paint and soon some new carpet. The work started with demolition. That involved taking down studs, tearing out drywall, ripping up…

How’s Retirement? by Steve Tandy

I tried for the last year or so to emphasize that I would be “repurposing” in 2016, rather than “retiring.”  To no avail.  The number one greeting I get these days is “How’s retirement?”  I usually answer “I’m figuring it out,” or “I’m getting used to it.”  What I’m thinking, however, is “I sure don’t…

Point of View? by Elaine Denman

We are just four Sunday’s away from Easter and if you know me well, you know that this is my favorite season of the year. In the last few days, I have thought about how Jesus willingly walked through suffering. Whether it was rejection, abandonment, ridicule, misunderstanding or having close friends leave due to unbelief;…
