designed to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve Him TAKING THE TIME The first day of September is a big day in the Gallahcr house because it brings with it the opening of the Texas hunting season This year was particularly special This was the year that Joseph my youngest son would be allowed to hunt For the last two years he has served as our bird an honored position for sure But no more This year Joseph was to be one of the men The adventure began the day we bought Josephs hunting license at Walmart The good ol boy behind the counter took a real liking to the youngster who was purchasing his first hunting tags Joseph stood at atten tion as he was asked his name rank and serial number and then the man handed his license over and shook his hand with the promise from Joseph that he would be safe and obey the rules It was out again to the field after that Joseph was given the privilege by his big brother to use his old single barrel shotgun my big brothers to Joseph You could see him watching our every move mimicking every action He was not going to miss his cue to enter into the world of his heroes Joseph was no longer a taealonp but a fullfledged card holding license carrying member of Dads world All we talked about for the next few days was shotguns and birds And of course our next hunting trip That would have been this past week I took off work a little early to sneak down to the sunflower the two of us By Dennis Gallaher the time I got home Joseph was decked in camo and ready to roll As we climbed through the fence with our gear in tow I realized just how much I enjoyed being with this little guy We sat on a fence line under the shade of a hackberry tree I learned a multitude about my son that I didnt know For example he has 26 teeth that he can count with his tongue I know this is true because I watched him do it Of those 26 teeth 15 are baby teeth Again he used the tongue counting method to deduce this I learned that there are mice hawks and rabbit hawks and that buzzards dont cat either unless they are smashed of course I learned that penguins have weird names and doves have lucky tail feathers that get them out of hunters paths and that he has 263 bones in his body But the best was yet to come We started talking about James his big brother I asked him what he thought it would be like when James went to college You would expect a long pause or a quick shrug of the shoulders but none of that hap pened It will be like saying goodbye to your life only it will be someone I was taken by surprise ambushed by the huge transparent emotion borne by this eight year old soul He was saying Now it is your rum to enter into my world And so I did I asked him to tell me about the time I had made him the saddest When we were at Popeyes eating lunch and you got angry when I hurt What did I do that hurt him the most When you dont hurt with me when I am There is a place in a childs heart that is reserved for only very safe people who ask1 very vulnerable questions It is really a place reserved for a parent to enter to catch a glimpse of a child that most never see But it takes something that many parents arc not willing to give Time Here is a statistic to chew on The majori ty of fathers spend an average of 20 min utes a week in personal conversation with their children and 15 minutes of that time is spent in discipline In other words oneonone conversation from a dad to a child in many homes is vir tually nonexistent It is no wonder that Family Court judges sav that the breakdown of the family is the blame for more juvenile crime than any other factor not poor education 7 not poor housing 15 and not even drugs 21 The number of children arrested on mur der charges increased by 51 percent from 1988 to 1992 One juvenile court judge says shes seen kids become more depraved less remorse ful numb to the worth of life over her 20 year tenure on Family Court And much of this because parents and especially dads have forsaken their respon sibilities to enter into the very secret gar dens of their children For the lack of time most would say but is really not a lack at all Just a priority in how we use it The weekend is coming up Mom and Dad What would your kid like to do that you could give two or three hours of undi vided attention to It might be fishing at Landa Park or a hike down Panther Canyon Maybe go to Cypress Bend and swing on the swings with them How about the tree house that you promised to start or the picnic lunch you have always planned on taking There are a multitude and a half of differ ent things that you have not done with your child that would give you a chance to enter into their world Why not take the step and do it Too many parents live with the regret of not taking time to be with their children Personalize that today and plan to really be in their world tomorrow Youll make a much better companion than Saturday morning cartoons Dennis Gallaher is the pastor of the Freedom Fellowship Church in New Small in size big in heart Live Oak Baptist Church clings to early days where worship was conducted under an oak tree By TECLO Staff Writer Live Oak Baptist Church Ring a bell No pun intended Hint Its not in Live Oak the suburb sandwiched between Randolph and San Antonio Hint Its not in renowned writers Frank J Dolbie home county

DARNALL Live Oak Baptist Church is a small church with an emphasis on exciting fulfilling worship services attend Sunday Morning at 11 Its a small but vibrant said Boston who has been pastor at Live Oak for just over a year What we have in our worship is something we can feel The fellowship of excitement When we go to movies we want to come out of there like we felt something When you come out of a worship service you should come feeling the presence of Boston his wife Ihrrrrnn and their chil dren Kevin Jonathan and Chanise will move to New Braunfels in November from San Antonio The New Mexico native said doing the work of God in such a small church suits him fine But it does not have to stay that Boston said The need to reach souls is just as great in a small church as it is in a large Because he will be the 19th pastor in 94 years he said the congregation looked him over closely when he first came on board I think they trust me he joked Live Oak will have its Homecoming the afternoon of Oct 23 It will be a time for those who used to attend or be members of the church Boston invites all those who would like a great time of fellowship and edification to drop by and join
