Converted kidnapper meets pastor


Last week I was in Nuevo Laredo with two groups of students. While other young people went to the beach or goofed off, these two student teams wanted to use their week to bring glory to God. This past Thursday, one of the teams went to minister among the women being held in the maximum […]

What an example Preston gave us


He wasn’t like the rest of the students on the trip. He was older than they were by 10 years, but it was more than his age that made him different. His name was Preston Moore, and he came from the great state of Georgia. Preston wanted to go on a mission trip and lead […]

This column will invite criticism…


Only twice in writing this article have I ever come under attack. It happened once when I said something about a dog and once when I made a comment about a politician. Out of more than 900 articles, that’s not a bad record. I guess you could say that most of the time, my articles […]

Welcome to Cohen Richard Moore!


Good morning! It’s nice to meet you. I know you’re overwhelmed right now with all these new people swarming around and wanting to hold you. But soon, you and I will have some alone time, and you’ll get to know me as Poppy. That’s what your big brother, Titus, calls me, and I’m sure you […]

Leave a legacy to your grandchildren


My grandparents on my mother’s side were Irish and lived on a small farm in Missouri. I never knew my dad’s father, who died before I was born. I don’t know why, but my grandfather and I were very close. Maybe it was because I was his first grandson or because we shared the same […]

A sincere prayer for a hurting soul…


For many years I had a dual role as both a youth and a children’s pastor. One of my responsibilities was leading children’s church. My favorite part of each Sunday was listening to these young children pray. Children pray from a place most of us adults have lost: a sincere heart. Before our prayer time […]

We the people can turn things around


I feel pretty good about entering my senior adult years. I thought by the time I got to this age, I would be useless or have little left to offer the younger generation. But I think I might have discovered a way for those of us who are rounding the last curve to be an […]

Hallelujah for Cohen Richard Moore!


I hunched over the piano as the sunlight shone in. I could hear the neighborhood kids gathering outside the windows and the sound that captures a young man’s fancy as a ball is slammed into a glove. The empty lots between our home and the Adams’ would fill up each evening after dinner and before […]

Here’s a letter to help remember Poppy


Dear Titus the Honorable, The two years and five months you’ve been in my life have been some of my best days ever. I’m writing to you for a couple of reasons. The first is that as you get older, you probably won’t remember all the things you and I have done together. Second, because […]

A message to the younger generation…


I believe that God has His hand on your age group. We have never seen a generation like yours. This year your numbers will surpass those of my generation, the Baby Boomers, to become the largest generation that has ever walked this planet. Simply put, there are a lot of you. In the short time […]
