The Rural Virginian

  • Even dogs need to be prepared for back-to-school

    It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and kids soon will be heading back to school. Families will be hustling and bustling to gather school supplies and buy new clothes to prepare everyone for the new school year. There is, however, one member of the family who often is forgotten during this time of year — the family pet.
  • Reeling in catfish could become a family tradition

    It might seem strange, coming from a kid who grew up fishing in rural Central Virginia, within minutes of the Rivanna River and the almighty James, but catfishing is a discipline that evaded my interests and feeble efforts throughout my childhood. It isn’t a family tradition, as is trout fishing and deer hunting; I had no teacher. And though I had countless trout and bass to my name by the time I reached adulthood, the number of whiskered fish remained grounded in the single digits, many of which were caught by accident.

Grace & Glory Tackles Hunger

“When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” -from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 14.
