    “The Last Supper” at Carrollton Christian

    Carrollton Christian Church invites the community to attend its Maundy Thursday play “The Last Supper” at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 13.

    First presented in 1970, the original script was written by the late Rev. Paul Livesay and Dwight Louden. Many of the lines are taken from the Bible scriptures and others are the authors’ vision of conversations between the disciples. The purpose of the play is to bring to life the scriptures and to bring the viewer to an attitude of worship.

  • Who killed Jesus?

    Isaiah 53:10

    There has long been a debate over the question, who killed Jesus? Some are of the opinion that it was the Jewish leaders. Matthew 26:3-4 states “Then assembled together, the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and consulted, that they might take Jesus by trickery, and kill Him.”

    After getting two out in the first inning, Carroll County starting pitcher Andrea Searcy found that she had a target somewhere on her uniform as the next two Eminence batters hit balls back up the middle that struck her. Searcy was uninjured, and she pitched a complete game.

  • Library offers wide selection of books

    National Library Week started in 1958, and was based on the idea that once people were motivated to read, they would support libraries. The first National Library Week theme was “Wake Up and Read!” Fast forward 59 years and the theme is “Libraries Transform.” This reflects the transformation of libraries over the years. As our lives, families and communities change, so must our libraries. We have so many resources at your disposal–some you associate with libraries and some you may not.

I’ve enjoyed talking to so many of you about the many issues we faced and the final decisions that were made, some with my support and some without.
