  • Remember to follow these food safety reminders with your holiday turkey. How much to buy?

    For fresh or frozen turkeys, allow one pound of turkey per person. Turkeys can be kept frozen in the freezer indefinitely; however, cook within one year for best quality.

    Plan ahead. There are three ways to thaw your turkey safely - in the

    refrigerator, in cold water or in the microwave.

  • Power for living - doesn't that sound like something we want and need? We certainly are interested in the power to overcome the obstacles and difficulties that come to us in our daily lives.

    We have some really good resources available to us as Christians, but often we do not realize it. As a result, we don't put them to work in our lives.

    The Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:14-21 gives three ways to receive power for daily living.

  •  The born-again man or woman is not motivated by this world-system.

    Think of being on the farm. It is a very hot summer day. Nearby in the barn lot there is a big mud wallow. 

    Here comes a pig. He grunts with contentment as he wades into the slime. You say, "Mr. Hog, why do you want to wallow and submerge in that filth? Why do you not seek a cleaner environment?" 

    That pig has not the slightest interest in your ideas for his betterment. He loves the mud.
