Man Killed in Shooting Near Calvin J oseph “Joe” Henry Harden, 22, appeared before Hughes County District Judge B. Gordon Allen on January 22, 2013, on allegations of first degree murder. According to an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) report signed by Adam S. Whitney, OSBI special agent assigned to investigate the homicide, a 911 call was placed to the Hughes County Sheriff’s office after 6 a.m. on January 20th by Harden. Harden allegedly told the dispatcher that he “killed his best friend, but that it was an accident” and he had been drinking alcohol.

During the investigation, Harden told Hughes County Sheriff Kenny Snyder that 21-year-old Michael Eric Morris held the gun under his chin and told Harden to pull the trigger. Harden al-

leged he pulled the trigger but did not know the gun was loaded. Sheriff Kenny Snyder, deputies, and emergency medical personnel responded to the scene with a search warrant

where they found the body of 21-year-old Michael Eric Morris with a single gunshot wound to the left side of the head, noting there was no wound under the chin. A ccording to a witness, around 6:15 a.m., Morris, Harden and the witness were talking in the kitchen area when Morris went outside and retrieved his .38 caliber revolver and a box of ammunition. Morris allegedly showed the revolver to the witness and Harden. The witness then said while Harden was holding the revolver, the gun discharged hitting Morris in the head. The wit-

ness shook Morris who was unresponsive and Morris’ body fell to the floor. S heriff Snyder added that both individuals were intoxicated and no formal charges have been filed against Harden yet. B o n d w a s s e t f o r $100,000 for Harden with additional conditions by Hughes County District Judge B. Gordon Allen. Harden awaits in the Hughes County Jail for his initial court appearance on February 5th at 9 a.m. OSBI and Hughes County Sheriff’s Department continue to investigate and interview witnesses.

Eva Crabtree celebrated her 90th birthday on January 16, 2013 and was honored with a surprise party on Saturday, the 13th. Family from Sacramento, California, Kansas City, Missouri, Little Rock, Arkansas, and Oklahoma City joined family and friends from Allen to make this a very special celebration. The guest-of-honor status was shared with her son, Michael, whose birthday was the day of the party, January 13th. Eva, born in Ada, Oklahoma in 1923, was the youngest of four children. Her mother, Cathy Iletawakie Thompson, full blooded Chickasaw, came from Alabama on the Trail of Tears. Cathy passed away when Eva was very young and she was raised by her Irish father, Owen Thompson. Attending grade school at Lovelady and Homer, both in Ada, Eva received her high school education at Carter Seminary Girls School in Ardmore and finished her schooling in 1941 at Shilocco Indian School in Newkirk. Eva worked at Douglas Aircraft in Tulsa during World War II, stringing cables on

B24 and B25 bombers. She left that job in 1944 to marry the love of her life, Ed Crabtree, and the young couple made Allen their home. Ed and Eva have three children, seven grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. E va enjoys Indian Stomp Dances, all night gospel singing, and attending band and sporting events in Allen. Eva was a role model for the Allen Booster Club. She is famous for her fried pies and chicken and dumplings, she attends the First Baptist Church in Allen, and is a diehard Sooners fan! Eva attends many of their football games, both home and away, and personally knows many of the players and staff at OU! Those attending the surprise party were Charlie Crabtree, Christie Keylon, Felipe and

Most of us complain about “hard times” on a regular basis. However the fact is the vast majority are living better than any generation in history. Those that actually went through “hard times” never complained about them. Many of our parents and grandparents grew up in a Depression, served in a World War, and had to learn how to survive on a daily basis. Clancy Strock was one of those that grew up in the Depression and writes . . . “I have to wonder just how tough “surviving” can be in a multi-million-dollar home with a swimming pool and a platoon of servants. Hey, pal, I remember when surviving was a decidedly grim business and even strong people fell by the wayside. It was during the 1930s. Surviving meant standing on a street corner, feet like blocks of ice, trying to sell apples or pencils to people as hard up as you were. It meant begging for food at back doors or waiting in long, slow lines at outdoor soup kitchens. Desperate people tried everything and anything to make a buck. Among the most miserable schemes were dance marathons, which seemed to be everywhere during the Depression. The idea was the last couple left standing won a modest cash prize. The music played on and on . . . and on. For days and even weeks at a time, bone-weary, hallucinating men and women staggered around the dance floor with only the briefest of breaks for food and new bandages to cover the blisters on their feet. Meanwhile, the curious bought tickets to watch and speculate on who would be next to crumple unconscious to the floor. These days, it’s not necessary for people to survive on their own – there are myriad “safety nets” and government-sponsored welfare programs for the needy. But back then, surviving was, indeed, up to the individual. Those in need turned to family for help. Grampa and Gramma Stevens lived in a fair-sized, five bedroom house, and at various times during the ‘30s, it was filled to overflowing with unemployed children and their children, plus an unmarried daughter still living at home. Years later, I asked Gramma how she endured so much stress and racket. She thought about it, smiled and said, “Well . . . it sure taught me patience.” We had our share of temporary boarders at our house, too. There was Dad’s sister, one of Mom’s brothers and her sister with husband and baby. Some were with us a few weeks, others many months at a time. Was it an inconvenience? Sure. But it was what you did in those days – your door was always open to family members in need. Not long after Franklin Roosevelt became President, 30% of all workers were jobless. A bunch of innovative programs were launched to help desperate people without hope. One of the best was the Civilian Conservation Corps, which set up work camps run by Army officers throughout the U.S. More than a quarter million men were taken off the breadlines and given food, shelter, clothing and medical attention, plus $1 a day in wages. For that, they cleared brush, planted trees, fixed roads and developed state and national parks. Roosevelt predicted, “This enterprise will pay dividends to present and future generations.” How right he was and what a good idea it would be to revive in these times! One direct relief program was less than successful, for a reason that underlines the character of people in that era. Few signed up for its benefits because being on relief was shameful. Then the program was changed to “work relief.” A person receiving, say, $10 a week in grocery or rent vouchers was asked to work on public projects for enough hours to earn the $10. A government official explained: “Fine people who would not come to us for direct relief would come for work relief because it was like a job.” A smattering of towns and counties did manage to rig up welfare programs of their own. Often, a list of recipients and how much they’d been given was posted outside city hall. Names weren’t removed until the money had been repaid in full. Kids were expected to find jobs, too. I worked when I could for a neighboring farmer, who paid me $1 a day plus a scrumptious lunch prepared by his wife. They more than lived up to their family name, which was Good. Other kids sold magazines door-to-door, worked as Western Union messengers, delivered groceries, shined shoes – anything that would produce a few dollars. Arriving home at night, they emptied their pockets on the kitchen table, and Mom added their earnings to her household money.

Even the frugal and prudent found themselves penniless when banks closed. Until banks reopened and could pay off their depositors, people had to learn to survive in a world without money. Some towns issued “script” – temporary unofficial money that could later be redeemed for real cash (it was hoped). In short, people did whatever it took. They lived on wit, ingenuity and sheer grit. Welfare was an option only when all other possibilities had been exhausted. Being “on the county destroyed a person’s pride and reputation in the neighborhood. Listening to today’s folks talk about “hard times” is tough to swallow if you can still remember the days when surviving was a matter of searching the house for five pennies that would buy the loaf of bread a family of four needed to stay alive another day.” Maybe what many of us need is not “better times” but greater appreciation. —CC— I love senior citizens . . . and not just because I am one. An elderly South Carolina man fought off an armed in-

truder using a Swiffer WetJet. Philip Graham, 71, and his wife were cleaning the kitchen floor when an unknown man in a ski mask, brandishing what appeared to be a gun, came through the back door. Without thinking, Graham used the swivel-headed mop “like a cattle prod” and shoved the thief out the door, breaking off the mop head. “I hit him with the end of the pole where the Swiffer was and I just told him, ‘You better get out of my house, you sorry SOB, before I kill you.’” The man fled in terror. “Some of us are going to fight back,” said Graham. —CC— And last of all, my favorite “senior citizen” story of the week: Debbie and Phil were sitting in the living room watching the tube when he said to her, “Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug. She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw his beer out the window!

Threads of Life by Cleo LeVally Vienna Trip, part 5 Vienna Trip cont: The Town Hall in Vienna is a huge, impressive and beautiful building. The grounds are immense and on holidays and other occasions there is a lot of activity. At Christmas there were food vendors, musicians, clowns and other acts performing every night. A man with a small monkey made the rounds one night while we visited. The man played music on his accordian and the monkey would go around the crowd to collect coins. In another area, a band was playing for the children and they were given bags of candy and other small gifts. There were food vendors and I ate food that I had never tasted before and could not pronounce the name of. It was delicious. At Christmas, the Kris Kringle Mart was in the park across from the city hall. Vendors offered every kind of thing you could imagine. This is the sort of thing that goes on in this area at each holiday. Back in the downtown district we visited the Albertina, which is a part of the Hofburg Palace

and viewed a large collection of graphic works. This collection had around 50,000 drawings and over a million graphic and printed works. These works offer an almost continuous overview of international art from the 15th to the 20th century, representing such artists as Raphael, Michelangelo, Durer, Rembrandt and Rubens. The Albertina is a very old building remodeled from 1801 to 1804 for Maria Theresa’s son-i.nlaw, Duke Albert. As we viewed this collection, we came upon a photo of one of the artists, circa 1805-1863, that bore a very striking resemblance to my son, and of course, I took a photo of this to show the family. We kidded him about living in another age. At the close of World War 1, the Austro-Hungarian Empire was dismembered and Vienna lost it status as the seat of Imperial power. The population declined from 2 million to 1.5 million. One of the many shopping attractions in Vienna is antiques. Furniture and objects of art have somehow ended up in shops and were a wonder to

see. The best chance of finding a bargain is in the auction room of the Doroteum. This is a state owned pawn shop and was set up by Emperor Joseph 1 to enable the newly poor to realize a quick return on heirlooms and to possibly redeem them later in a more prosperous period. It is also a kind of state sponsored clearing house for stolen art objects, where the original owners could even buy their property back if the police had not managed to run down the thieves. The items are put on display before the sale, and many people go there just to view the objects. They range from furniture and paintings to jewelry, guns, furs, crystal, china and almost everything that can be found in any museum. We visited there

several times as it encompassed six floors and it was impossible to see everything in one or two visits. In the evening when a sale was in progress we went over just to see what prices these objects would bring. The coffee house is a concept associated worldwide with the city of Vienna. Melange is the most popular drink. I mentioned this before. This is a very strong coffee. The coffee is poured into the cup at the same time as warm cream. It does not have to be stirred as it is mixed as it is being poured. Another popular coffee is served in a very small demitasse cup. It is very strong and a large scoop of cream has been put on top. Both ways to serve it was too strong for me. You can sit in any of the restaurants or coffee houses and

have conversation and coffee as long as you like. There is no pressure to leave. Vienna people love their dogs and they are welcome in the restaurants. The people bring them in on a leash and the dogs lay down under the tables, never making a sound. Most of the coffee houses are spacious and even if they are crowded they seem to have room for everyone. In the summer, most of the coffee houses move tables and chairs outside and they become sidewalk cafes. It is a wonderful place to people watch, and also to rest if you have been walking around and doing a lot of sightseeing. Across from the opera house, you may sit at a sidewalk café and hear the music, or view the opera-goers, and pretend to be a part of it all.

Once in a while you hear some of us old “coots” talk about how good those old cars were. “Better than those plastic things we buy these days”, so we’ll say. Well, they did have style and I think most people are thinking of those cars back in the 40s and 50s— those that came after WWII when no cars were even made for 4 years. But the demand far exceeded the supply for 2 or 3 years. You had to get on a waiting list. It was in such a setting in late in 1946 when a train hauling “hundreds” of new Chevys wrecked just east of Calvin. New cars scattered everywhere some bent up but the insurance company went ahead and auctioned them off. The need for a car was so great that most sold for more than sticker value of about 800 dollars. If you were on a waiting list you didn’t have any say about color, and the “extras” back then were a radio and a heater. You could save 8 bucks if you would skip the heater and about 12 bucks on that AM radio. Eventually Detroit caught up with demand and that’s when consumers started getting more selective. However, quality control was “out the window” up there in Detroit with labor problems abounding. So sometimes doors didn’t always close just right and engines weren’t always just real good.

Old Cars and the good old days.

But the Bullards were lucky. We were on several waiting lists but our first new car was a 1947 Nash Ambassador. It was not the car Dad wanted, but the day the Nash dealer called from Ada our old car had been laid up for six weeks waiting on parts. We were afoot. That afternoon Gerald, Sue and I were busy tearing off the shipping paper from the upholstery inside and the car turned out to be a great and trouble free car. Should have stuck with Nash. But so much for that idea. Our next car, a 1949 Chevy, was really a nice looking car. Smelled great and had a radio with push buttons, a heater plus the stylish sun visor (another $18). We took a trip to Wister that weekend to visit grandma and show off our new car. We were between Calvin and McAlester when the car “jumped” out of gear. Dad found he had to manually hold the car in gear with his hand. The next week Service Chevrolet in Ada advised us: “Yeah, some of ‘em do that—you’ll just have to live with it and hold her in gear. It may get better later on.” It didn’t. My dad mentioned that sometimes the horn honked when we turned left. “Yeah, we’re hearing a lot of that too,” the service manager said.

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ What was the origin of the church of Christ? How did it come into existence? Did it break away from some denomination? Was it established by a man or a group of men? Do we not read that Jesus said, “I will build my church?” (Matt 16:18) Did not the Apostle Paul say that it was purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ and that “Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her?” (Acts 20:28; Eph 5:25) And also, that “Christ is head of the church.” (Eph 5:23)

These scriptures seem very plain. Jesus built His church. It is not a denomination, nor did it come from a denomination. It was not built by some man or group of men! It belongs to Jesus Christ, purchased by His blood and He is the head of it. Those who are saved are added to it (Acts 2:47). But, isn’t that church, as build by Jesus, extinct? Can it exist today? Why not? Jesus compared His word to seed. (Luke 8:11) Doesn’t seed produce after its kind? Surely, if we obey Christ’s word (seed), we will be His Church today! When the Jews on the Day of Pentecost (Recorded in Acts 2.) obeyed the word spoken by Peter as he was guided by the Holy Spirit, they were saved and added to the church of Christ. Today, if people obey the same words of the Spirit, would not they be the church of Christ? Would not Christ add them to His church, just as in He did on the Pentecost of

Of course, that means that in all things, we must obey His word – in worship, in organization, in name, in teaching, in morals, in all practices, etc. Yes, the undenominational church of Christ can and does exist today. It exists wherever men put their faith in Jesus, the savior; follow His word and the teaching about the church as given in the New Testament.

high-flying Lady Mustangs. In addition to Skelton’s 26 point outburst, Allen had 8 other scorers. Alison Sells was also in double figures with 11 points. Sandra Howshar and Charlea Leonard added 8 points. Ashley Cross generated 6 points while Hannah Heck tossed in 5. Cheyenne Nickell and Miranda Raney scored 4 while Kennedy Prentice rounded out the scoring with 2 points. Looking ahead, Allen will try to keep that scoring magic alive during the Pott County tournament at Oklahoma Baptist University. The Lady Mustangs were scheduled to play Wellston at 7:45 p.m. Their second-round opponent will be either Earlsboro or Macomb in the second round, depending on whether they win or lose against Wellston. “I think the win (over Vanoss) will help us going into this tournament,” said Coach Strong. “They now know what they are capable of doing now. More than anything, the win on Friday gives them confidence they can hit their shots.” --Tuesday @ Tupelo Kiowa 78, Allen 37 Kiowa - 25 - 13 -23 - 17 (78) Allen - 9 - 9 - 9 - 10 - (37) Allen scoring: Beyla Skelton 13, Hannah Heck 9, Alison Sells 4, Miranda Raney 3, Kennnedy Prentice 2, Cheyenne Nickell 2, Taryn Wofford 2, Charlea Leonard 1, and Sandra Howshar 1. --Thursday @ Hartshorne Hartshorne 56, Allen 33 Allen - 7 - 2 - 8 - 16 - (33) Harts - 12 - 16 - 11 - 17 - (56) Allen scoring: Alison Sells 9, Beyla Skelton 6, Miranda Raney 5, Cheyenne Nickell 4, Taryn Wofford 4, Hannah Heck 2, Charlea Leonard 2 and Sandra Howshar 1. --Friday @ Allen Allen 74, Vanoss 39 Vanoss - 5 - 12 - 12 - 10 (39) Allen - 18 - 28 - 17 - 11 (74) Allen scoring: Beyla Skelton 26, Alison Sells 11, Sandra Howshar 8, Charlea Leonard 8, Ashley Cross 6, Hannah Heck 5, Cheyenne Nickell 4, Miranda Raney 4 and Kennnedy Prentice 2.

Coach Greg Mills urges his Mustangs to improve play during tournament

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Mustangs will spend this week vying for a plaque during the annual Pott County basketball tournament in Shawnee. Allen joins seven other boys teams in the 6-day event on the campus of Oklahoma Baptist University. “We’ll be playing Earlsboro in the first round,� said Allen coach Greg Mills. The Allen vs Earlsboro was set to tip off at 8:45 p.m. in the Noble Center field house at OBU. Last week was a tough stretch of basketball for the longtime AHS coach and his players. Three losses in a four-day stretch did nothing to inspire confidence moving forward. However, Allen is too good a team not to work toward improvement and progress. “We are not shooting the ball very well,� said Coach Mills. “It looks like the shots are going in, but they go half-way down and pop out or spin around and come out! Anything that can go wrong is going wrong.� Coach Mills is hoping the luck will swing back in Allen’s favor. “We’ll have to wait and see what we do,� he said. “One thing that has to improve is our play coming out of half-time. We have not done much of anything in the third quarter. With the level of competition we face, we can’t afford to give up a quarter and expect to come out with a win. It is just not happened. That is one thing that must change. The other thing is to have some of those shots go down instead of spinning out of the basket!� Last Tuesday, Allen began a 3-game losing skid. The Mustangs were beaten 47-29 by the visiting Kiowa Cowboys. Allen was outscored in each quarter. They were down 15-8 after one quarter and 23-13 at the half. They were outscored 9-8 in the third quarter and 15-8 in the last period. Kiowa walked away with a 47-29 victory. Jaret Holland finished with 11 points to pace Allen in a losing cause. Logan Dennis missed double figures with 8 points. Joseph Hopper and Cole Young added 4 points

On Thursday, Allen suffered a 43-27 setback at Hartshorne. The Miners led 26-19 going into half-time. So Coach Mills figured his team was still within striking distance. That changed, however, when the Mustangs came out with ice-cold scoring in the second half. They were limited to only 8 points in 16 minutes of play. Hartshorne managed 17 points during the span. The result was a 16-point loss by Allen at 43-27. Lane Mills led AHS with 9 points while Jaret Holland chipped in 8. Cole Young tossed in 6 points and Logan Dennis contributed 4. On Friday, Allen increased the scoring total to 49 points against the visiting Vanoss Wolves. Sadly, the Wolves were even more successful on offense. VHS netted 61 points to Allen’s 49. The result of the 61-49 verdict was a third consecutive loss for Coach Mills’ troops. Allen looks so strong coming out of the gate. The Mustangs led Vanoss 20-18 after one quarter. Vanoss fought back for a narrow 32-31 edge at half-time. However, the tight contest disappeared in the third quarter. Vanoss outscored the host team 18-6 to blow open a 1-point advantage to 13 at 50-37. The best that Allen could do down the stretch was outscoring the Wolves 12-11. The effort made the margin of loss a dozen at 61-49. Conner Johnson moved to the top of Allen’s scoring chart with 13 points. Jaret Holland was close being with 11 names. Cole Young provided 7 points and Zayne Erickson dropped in 6. Matt McCarn was a little back with 4 points. Four others generated 2 points each, including Tommy Peay, Lane Mills, Joseph Hopper and Dakota Nickell. “We shot 50 percent in the first half versus Vanoss,� Coach Mills said. “But in the second half we couldn’t hit anything. That’s going to cost you when you play the teams we have been playing. Our opponents lately are certainly no slouches. For us, we have to find the right

Harmony Missionary Church News

The Lord’s Day at Harmony Missionary Baptist Church of Gerty began service with singing I Surrender All, Follow Follow, and Footsteps Of Jesus. Church Trio sang Sheltered In The Arms Of God, and Surely Goodness And Mercy. Devotional reading was “Qualified to Serve�, Acts 6:1-7. Adult lesson was “A Heart for God�, I Samuel 16:1-13. God does His best work through those who are heartily committed to Him. Develop a heart for God by giving yourself completely over to Him. “The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.� I Samuel 16:7 Youth lesson, “More Than A Building�, Jesus created the church to represent Him then and today. Matthew 16:18, “And I say also unto thee that thou are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. In Times Like These, and Someone To Care was sung before the morning message. Bro. David’s message was taken from Matthew 7:1-6, “Self Righteous Judgment.� 7:1, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.� We were thankful to have Sister Billie back in service. She missed three Sundays due to illness.

Attendance was up again this Sunday so things are getting more and more back to normal after the holidays. Narva Wilkerson came surfing home from Hawaii last week and it was good to have her back with us again even if we all think she is looking a just little too tanned. January 26th at 6:00 is Movie and a Meal night. This is for all age groups so you will fit in just fine. February 3rd is He Man Breakfast Sunday, and it is for all ages, too. The serving line begins at 9:00 A.M. That same evening, the Super Bowl party will follow

the evening service which begins at 5:00 P.M. Yep, it’s for all age groups, too. We began the Wednesday afterschool program this past week and had a good crowd present for it. We need adults to help with it, too, and of course homemade cookies are welcome anytime anywhere. Well, except maybe at a Weight Watcher’s Meeting. Sunday morning Zoey McDonald, Torie Hammonds, and RayLynn Crase opened the services by reciting their memory verses and singing “Jesus Loves Me.” Joyce Searcy sang “On My Fa-

ther’s Side” as the special music selection. It is one of our favorite songs, and of course Joyce is one of our favorite people. Rev. Karch’s message was from Daniel 3:8-30. The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are one of our favorite children’s Bible stories, but it has a message for everyone. You will remember that Nebuchadnezzar had a 90 foot statue built. He was then influenced by some government people to make a law that anyone who didn’t bow down to it would be dealt a horrible death. Of course since Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were Jews they couldn’t obey that law, and they were arrested and brought before the king. Although they held highly placed jobs in the king’s government, he had to confront them about it. They acknowledged the charges and assured the king that God could deliver them from it if He chose, but even if He didn’t see fit to do that they could not bow to the idol because they would only worship the one true God. They were immediately thrown into a fire so hot that it killed the men who carried out the order

to do so. What happened next amazed the King and everyone else. He saw that not only were they not being burned up, they were walking around in it, and a fourth person that he thought looked like the Son of God was there with them. He called them to come out, and when they did their clothes were not burned nor did they even smell like smoke. By this time the king realized that they worshiped the one true God. Then he made laws to punish anyone who said anything against God and promised to promote Shadrach,

Meshach, and Abednego to higher positions than they held before. Society has a way of pressuring us into going along with the crowd. It may begin with always wanting to do what the other kids are doing instead of standing up for what we think is right. If we stand up for what God has told us is the right thing to do--including the times when it is difficult and we suffer consequences for it-then He will honor and bless us for it. You will always gain respect when you stand up for and go with what you believe.

Atwood Nazarene

Sunday we had several from our congregation sick with many ailments. Hopefully the flu bug will soon be gone and everyone will be back.  We are praying for rain.  This is getting to be a desperate situation and we all need to pray.  Our quartet sang the song “Sweeter As The Day Goes By.”  Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Matthew 11:28-30 and entitled “Looking for Life in All the Wrong Places.”  We have worn ourselves out looking for significance.  Most everyone wants to be someone.   We chase fame and fortune.  We chase relationships.  We chase diversions for fun.  Never in the history of the world have they been less fulfilling.  We ought to be asking ourselves:  What is missing?  We have been looking in all the wrong places.  Look at how complicated we’ve let our lives become.  We are chasing after the immediate and ignoring the significant.  Jesus invites us to examine our priorities.  Jesus offers us what we really need.  Our weary souls need rest.  We are attempting to live life by effort, not faith.  People today are often too busy to make church a priority in their lives.  God is not nearly as concerned with what we are doing as with what we are becoming. The reason we are not becoming more spiritual is because we are not coming to Jesus.  Unless and until we do, our lives will become more furious and fragmented.
