    Is God fading from our nation’s conscience?

     

    It occurred to me recently, if everything in our government or judicial system, that was “pending” or “postponed” came to a head immediately, could we as a nation handle the fall out?

    We know in our hearts someday, in His time, God will bring to a halt, all of man’s pre-conceived notions and remind us of His truths.

     The Blessedness of Righteousness

     

    “Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book . . . . Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life . . .” (See Revelation 22:7, 14).

  • On Higher Ground

    None of us knew it would be Karen’s last VBS

     

    “I’m not the VBS Director, Pastor. I share the job with Gayle and Jill,” Karen told me emphatically. But everybody knew she really was the director of  vacation Bible school at our church in Princess Anne, Maryland. To be sure, Gayle and Jill helped her tremendously. But Karen was the brains, the driving force behind it all.

    God can help you understand His Word

     

    So many times I have heard the expression- “I’ve tried to read the Bible, but it seems so hard to understand.”

    The first step to understanding God and His Word is to know that he understands us, and knows all about us. Read Psalms 139:1-24. Take notice of verse one, “O Lord, you have searched me, and known me.” And verse 17- “How precious also are your thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!”

  • LaFollette girls make first trip to state

    The 10- and 11-year-old All-Stars became the first LaFollette team in that age group to qualify for the Tennessee Little League Softball Tournament when they recently traveled to Jonesborough for state play.

    Jason Rutherford, who coached most of the girls on the LaFollette Skittles team during the regular season, said the trip was an eye-opening experience for his players.

    After playing most of the summer against 9- and 10-year-olds, the LaFollette All-Stars had to move up a division in the tournament because they had a couple of older girls on their team.
