Impulses… by Danny Couch
Years ago, Brenda would tell you that I was a very impulsive person. All I needed was an idea and a rationale and get outof my way. She dreaded going out of town because she never knew what she would come back to. I have later learned (through her “assistance”) that being impulsive can be both a blessing, when used appropriately, and a curse, if used selfishly. Emotionally, we tend to be a very impulsive people as well. We tend to react to others according to how we feel. How we handle our emotional impulses sets the tone for the church!

Taking Ourselves Lightly
John Paul Carter
Lately, our Sunday worship services have centered on helping us find the sacred in the secular - through music, movies, and cellular communication. However, in the selection of topics, they omitted the comics - the most important section of the newspaper, where every morning I find both the sacred and the human pictured in humorous and succinct ways that pass under my radar and deliver much-needed truth right on target.
Besides the "Three Ps" (Peanuts, Pickles, and Pluggers), one of my favorite comic strips is Mutts, which portrays the antics of all kinds of animals. One episode that I recently clipped and saved pictured two dogs watching a flight of geese overhead.
