Forestry Update – October 20

Three turkey subspecies are found in Texas: Rio Grande, Merriam’s and Eastern. The Eastern wild turkey (Meleagris gallopara silvestris) used to be populous in East Texas,, but were nearly eradicated by 1900 and despite restocking, populations are low. Their natural range includes the Pineywoods and Post Oak savannah ecoregions of East Texas, the Trinity River being the western boundary. Eastern wild turkeys are the most abundant turkey species in the United States, as well as being the most hunted. They usually prefer hardwood or mixed hardwood pine forests that contain open areas and are more vulnerable to predators where there is little ground-level...

Sunny Thoughts from Sunset – October 20

Sunset hosted the annual Brimberry Reunion last week at the church. We are thankful for all our Sunset Founders, especially at this time the Brimberry family. The Sunset pastor continued our theme in “First Peter—Trials, Pilgrimage, Courage and Hope” with a message, “Godly Shepherds.” The text was from 1 Peter 5:2: “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care….” What a blessing godly leaders are! King David, at the end of his life, described them (2 Samuel 23) as “the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth.” Whether we’re talking about leadership in a family, church or nation, godly leaders can take people to the blessing of green pastures and still waters to which they would not go if their leaders are corrupt and ungodly. The pastor made three points: (1) God’s Leaders; (2) Their Motivation; (3) Their Work. (1) God’s Leaders. V1: “To the elders among you.” In God’s house Peter describes the leaders as elders. Three Greek root words describe God’s leaders (all used here): presbuteros (elder/presbyter); episcopos (bishop/overseer), and poimen (shepherd/pastor). Elders are older, not new Christians; bishops describe the spiritual oversight responsibility of God’s leaders; shepherd describes the work that pastors/shepherds do. All three words describe different aspects of leadership among God’s people. (2) Their Motivation. (a) The reason...

Ever Wonder by Jacque – Many Work Retail

From time to time I have some everyday scenarios for you. Let’s just call this little column ‘They Walk among us and many work retail”. There was a man at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up a $46.64 charge. He gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave him back $46.64. He gave the money back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in his favor. She became indignant and informed him she was educated and knew what she was doing, and returned the money again. He gave her the money back again… same scenario! IHe departed the store with the $46.64. And they walk among us. A woman walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for a Grande Latte. She handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little chalkboard that said ‘buy one-get one free.’ ‘They’re already buy-one-get-one-free,’ she said, ‘so I guess they’re both free’. She handed the woman her free Lattes and she walked out the door. They walk among us! One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when one of them shouted, ‘Look at that dead bird!’.  Someone looked up at the sky and said, ‘Where’? They walk among us! While looking at a house, my brother asked the real Estate agent which direction was north because, he explained,...
