A Grandfather’s Stand on the Father Christmas Hullabaloo

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Tuesday, December 24, 2013

During this time of the year, a certain controversy raises its ugly red-scarfed head. Year after year, this hullabaloo continues and nobody has taken the initiative to deal with this holiday wrangling. That is, until now. Normally, I am a mild-mannered person and just to be on the safe side, I stay out of telephone booths. You cannot be too careful, if you know what I mean. As a great philos ... Read Christian Column

Out To Pastor - Let the holiday season begin

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Monday, November 25, 2013

This is the time of the year holidays get into full steam. It begins with Halloween when people put on a scary face and ends with New Year’s day when people put on a new face. I could never figure out if the Halloween face was the New Year’s Day face just that much older. I do not have much time for Halloween. Since the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has put me on a strict diet that does n ... Read Christian Column

Out To Pastor - Go Ahead - Make Dad's Day

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Friday, June 21, 2013

Throughout the year, many days of celebration are tucked capriciously into the calendar. So much so, it is hard to find any day of the year where something or someone is not being observed, which has benefited the greeting card company, you can be sure. I am not positive, but I think they have had a great deal to do with designating these days. Some days are celebrated a little more enthusiasti ... Read Christian Column

I’ve got Easter on my mind

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Tuesday, April 02, 2013

I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this but every once in a ... Read Christian Column

Out To Pastor - Will the Easter bunny just hop away… Please!

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I am what many people refer to as a purist. Many do not understand or know what a purist is so let me explain. No, a purist is not a Puritan, although I have nothing against Puritans and lean heavily in their direction. After all, I think it is better to be radical in the right direction than radical in the wrong direction as many people are today. I think the Puritans are getting a bad rap tod ...

Out To Pastor - Why Not Just Be An American

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Monday, July 02, 2012

As we celebrate another birthday of this great country, I cannot help but think back on some of our history. What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of T ... Read Christian Column

Out To Pastor - It all began with a love note

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Forty-one years ago, I was a naïve 19-year-old just beginning life's journey. I do not like to brag but I was the poster child for naïveté. I had a few ideas about life but too few to make me a contributing member of the human society. What I knew about life could fit nicely in my trouser pocket with plenty of room for a country boy’s pocketknife. One of the things that I did not know is that ... Read Christian Column

Out To Pastor - Merry Is As Merry Celebrates

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Although I may look a little stodgy on the outside with a few gray hairs blossoming on the top, I still know how to celebrate, and this is the time of the year to do that sort of thing. I love a good Christmas celebration. For the last few years, I have never had to check my calendar to know when it is time to celebrate the Christmas season. It seems that the Thanksgiving turkey always gives r ... Read Christian Column

Give Us This Day Our Turkey . . . Again

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Thursday, November 24, 2011

Thanksgiving is my kind of holiday. Apart from the "thanks" part, the primary purpose of this celebration is eating. That is the one thing I do quite well. Thanksgiving is the beginning of a feasting frenzy that would make Richard Simmons sweat to the goodies. Any thoughts of dieting at this time of the year are merely blowing in the wind. Hopefully, not in my direction. Our Pilgrim Fath ... Read Christian Column

Out To Pastor - On Pledging My Allegiance

Writer Author Dr. James L. Snyder
Type Christian Column  - Holidays
Posted Tuesday, June 28, 2011

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly just finished supper and we were resting in the living room watching the TV news. Actually, my wife was watching the news while I was perusing a book. As far as I am concerned, nothing equals the relaxation of a good book after a good supper. My definition of a good book is the one I am reading at the time. I had just settled into my book ... Read Christian Column
