Psalms 66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us; thou hast tried us with fire as silver is tried. (Ps.65:10 - Brenton's 1851 Greek Septuagint) Reading the Psalmist's statement, I am reminded of my uncle who was a metallurgist for Keystone Steel and Wire in the state of Illinois. With every new...
If there’s one thing I’ve learned as an elected official, it’s that people don’t agree on much.  Admittedly, I work in a building where people divide over political lines for a living, but I find it hard to find consensus on anything. We can’t even agree how to pronounce the name of our state....
2 Corinthians 6:17  "'Come out from them and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.'" Recently, I visited with an individual who was distraught regarding the latest election results and the immoral course of our nation. The person said they were consumed...
Acts 17:28  For in him we live, and move, and have our being... This week, a friend requested prayer for a newborn great-grandson who occasionally stops breathing. After interceding for the infant's need, several verses instantly came to mind. From the very beginning, God has been the '...

This letter is in response to the October 19th letter from James Vokac. Yes, let's talk about the Constitutional Rights.  You want to quote the 14th amendment about insurrection,  thats laughable!! Read the Definition of Inserruction... First of all this Administration has ruined the country...
It’s been a busy fall at the Capitol.  As you have been reading, we have finished the Extraordinary Session called by Governor Mike Parson, and we’ll talk more about the interim session in a moment. First, I’d like to focus on two new agenda items.  One is a very important ballot issue coming...
Acts 20:7 On the first day of the week we came together to break bread.  In Justin Martyr's "First Apology," the Holy Eucharist is explained (circa 153-155 A.D.) during the Early Church's Apostolic Period: "And this food is called among us Eucharistia [the Eucharist], of which no one is...
As I watch the clown show in Washington, I can’t help but think of the millions of our forefathers, and what they would think of this spectacle. To put it bluntly, I am appalled by the Anti-American policies enacted by this Administration, and the silence of my fellow citizens. Do my fellow...
