From our Family and Music Minister | Over the years, I have written many times about the adventures my Mother would get me into; however, she usually had admirable intentions. A lady that my Mother knew from Cordele had stopped by her store to shop and, more importantly, sit and talk for a few hours. In the conversation, the lady complained, as most mothers do at some point, that her children would not help her do anything around her apartment. Since this lady was up in age, my Mom asked her what she needed help doing. She needed her freezer defrosted and cleaned out. My Mother told her to go home and unplug it before she went to bed, and we would be there the next day to help her.

From Our Pastor | How frightening and unsettling are these times!  Everywhere we look we see uncertainty and unrest.  We are constantly bombarded with propaganda to heighten wise concern to terror and panic.  Realizing there is such an agenda gives even more reason for alarm.  These truly are disturbing days.

From our Family and Music Minister | We have all heard the saying, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”  There cannot be chickens without eggs. But there cannot be eggs without chickens. They are pretty much a package deal. Aren’t we glad God took care of creating the egg and the chicken, so we didn’t have to worry about it? Faith and works go together like the chicken and the egg. One leads to the other, and the other leads to the one. Good works show true faith, and good works build a growing faith in true believers.

From our Pastor | Have you ever felt overwhelmed?  You may feel that way now!  It is understandable.  We live in very confusing, complicated, and uncertain times.  Personal problems and concerns add to the burden.  Where can we find the strength that we need to face these things?

From our Family and Music Minister | Have you ever been cooking a meal or trying a new recipe, and you add an ingredient that just completely ruins your food?  This has happened to me multiple times, especially when I started cooking more frequently in college. I had some friends come up to see us for the weekend, so I decided to precook several dishes for meals, including a big pot of spaghetti. I had a cookbook that I used with great success, so I saw no reason not to trust it completely. As we sat down to eat and I took a bite of the spaghetti, it was without a doubt the worst spaghetti I had ever eaten. I didn’t learn how to make spaghetti that day, but I knew what one ingredient NOT to put in spaghetti again.

From Our Pastor | Isn’t life confusing?  Every day we face problems that are complicated and numerous.  Our ears are constantly filled with contradicting opinions and advice.  How can we know what to do in any given situation?

From our Family and Music Minister | Over the last 50 years, we as children, were all raised differently. For example, some children were raised to work as soon as possible, while others focused on getting an education.  Other children grew up with internet access with tons of resources, while some had to figure out the microfilm reader at the public library. Unfortunately, some children were born into families that had difficulty putting supper on the table, while others never worried about their basic needs being met. Yet, no matter our circumstances or our situation, we all have the same heavenly Father, and no matter where we come from, we can all have the same eternal home.
