Hunting on “The Lord’s Day”

Op-Ed by Billy Mauldin Having served in the local church and for the past sixteen years with Motor Racing Outreach, I greatly value seeing men and women, young and old, involved in the church, the body of Christ. I know for a fact that health and well-being begins and ends with a personal relationship with…

Christians and Alcohol

I’m a Christian…and I Don’t Drink.

I am about to make a controversial statement. I am a Christian, and I don’t drink alcohol. There, I said it! Crazy isn’t it? What is even crazier to me is that it used to be controversial to hear “I am a Christian and I do drink alcohol.“ It is amazing how things have shifted. I am…

Homeless Nashville TN

Beware of the Homeless. They Might Touch You.

Picture this. You find yourself strolling down the beautiful downtown streets of whatever city you live near. As you are walking, a man extends his hand to you in an attempt to stop and engage you. He is well groomed and clean. A fancy watch clings to his wrist from his extended hand. His face is…

Have you ever lost someone?   If you’ve ever spent time watching children before, you can immediately relate to that question. As a parent, I always thought that was beyond me. I mean, how do you lose a child, right? Well, with an extremely active six and three year old I’ve learned that, in fact, it…

Heroes in the Shadows

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up? A fireman? An astronaut? Musician? Cowboy? Sports superstar? What were your dreams? I had three. I wanted to be a racecar driver, I wanted to be an artist for Disney and I wanted to have a family. All of my…

Sticks and Stones

“You think you are a good person, but you aren’t. You are a horrible person.“ My eyebrows raised as the voice echoed through the bookstore from the next isle over near the children’s books. Kaleb was insistent about looking at a few books on the isle we were on, so there I stood with a…
