  • Project Comfort prepares seniors for winter months

    I often wonder what it must have been like for the twelve disciples when Jesus washed their feet. I think Peter spoke for the group when he declared, “Never shall You wash my feet!”  Peter said this because he knew that it was unnatural for the leader of a group to humble himself and serve those who followed him. This was especially true when the leader of the group was no less than the Savior of the world.  But this is what Jesus did.  He became a servant and served His closest friends and followers.

  • To attend God’s reunion, people only need to ask

    When there is an event in our city, whether it is the fair, a car exhibit, the Tobacco Festival, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving day, graduation day, Mother’s Day, a wedding, someone’s birthday or many other events throughout the year, families gather and spend time in companionship, everybody together.

    These reunions enlighten kids and adults. We take many pictures, play and eat. They are moments that we will always remember and will always be a part of our lives.

  • Autumn is a time to reflect peace of God, guard hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

    The sun is lower in the sky. There is briskness in the air. The deep green of summer is giving way to hints of yellow, orange, red and brown.

    Fallen leaves are peppering the sidewalks and lawns of our community. Birds are on the wing, heading south. Flower beds are being turned over for the coming winter. Lawn mowers will soon be back in storage. Sweat shirts are around the waist and over the shoulders at dawn and dusk. Once again God is gracing us with the beautiful season of autumn.

  • In both sports and faith, learning the basics is key

    This past August, I “unretired” from coaching football and returned to the gridiron to lead the 6- to 8-year-old Pee Wee Yellow Jacket football team. 

    Most of you probably are reading this and laughing, because you understand that – at this level of football and within this age group – coaching is merely a title and not necessarily an action.

    Honestly, teaching football at the most basic level is the project at hand for myself and the three or four other coaching dads.
