I must confess there are some words I absolutely hate. One of them is ‘community’. It’s not that this word is inherently evil in any way, it’s just that it has become a word we Christians use to alleviate ourselves of the responsibility of submission, obedience and obeisance to God. I hate the word because ‘community’ has become the latest Christian buzzword that is touted as being the solution to church lethargy despite the fact that it means nothing.by
From 1947 through 1960 America’s kids would plunk themselves in front of the television set for the 5:30 PM viewing of the Howdy Doody show. For 30 minutes each weekday they would be entertained by the lovable puppet and a cast of characters including Buffalo Bob Smith, Bob Keeshan (later to become Capt. Kangaroo), and Gabby Hayes.
The most amazing thing about the Howdy Doody show is how the script writers and executive producers weaved an entire storyline of half-truths and outright deceptions whenever circumstances threatened to disrupt the program.by
