  • Another encouraging word

    How many words have been used recently in commencement addresses in America on how to succeed in the days ahead?  Quite a lot.  Supposedly, those giving words of encouragement have succeeded in some field of endeavor themselves.  It is accurately assumed that people will listen to a model of success, but are negligent  in reading a manual on how to succeed.    Many say, “When all else fails, read the manual.”

  • VBS season is here!

    For a lot of kids Vacation Bible School at area churches is as much a part of their summer schedules as are sports, favorite swimming holes, and homemade ice cream.

    The VBS sessions usually center on a single theme involving kids in games and crafts, and—most importantly—seeking to teach biblical truths.

    Though most classes continue several successive days or nights, the length varies as do the times school is in session. Following are examples of what some local churches are doing.

  • Does our faith marvel Jesus?

    By Paul Richey

    Guest Columnist

    If we were to take a moment and evaluate our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, would our faith marvel Jesus or would Jesus say, “Oh you of little faith?” The Bible gives us examples of both these extremes. Peter was identified at one moment as having a faith that was small. In contrast, we read in Matthew 8:5-13 of a Gentile, centurion soldier who is identified by a faith that marvels Jesus. So does your faith marvel Jesus?

  • And now?

    Congratulations to those who are graduating, be it from kindergarten to college, or beyond!  And hats off to those at all grade levels who have received awards and recognition for high achievement! You are to be commended upon reaching goals you have set for yourself and those set by others for you.  The way has been made easier for you to move ahead to other chosen efforts.  The word “commencement” means “beginning,” so you are better prepared for what lies ahead.

  • Race and Godliness

    By Jonathan Carl

    Guest Columnist

    Have you ever noticed how much you think about yourself? Everyone does it. You don’t have to try to. It just happens. Why?

    Have you ever noticed how natural it is to compare yourself with others? To look down on others in order to think better of yourself? Why does that happen so easily and so often?

    Have you ever noticed how easy it can be to go through a day with little thought, time, and attention devoted to God through His Word and prayer? Why are we so oblivious to God and self-focused?

  • With all thine heart

    Carolyn Smith here, George’s wife.  I asked permission of the editor to allow me to pre-empt my husband’s column this week in order to tell his readers that May 20 was the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the Gospel ministry.  

    We are so thankful that God has used him all these years and continues to do so, as he still pastors a church and continues to write this devotional column for three newspapers.

Everyone enjoyed fellowshipping with one another while Missionary members and friends were preparing for the luncheon.

  • Worship at the center

    Draw a circle that represents your life. At the very center should be our worship of God. Christ is to be the center on our heart’s throne.
