  • Wilkinsons celebrate anniversary with church

     Sunday morning, Rev. Jerry Wilkinson had two reasons to celebrate.

    He has been pastor at First Baptist for 12 years and was waiting for the arrival of his granddaughter.

    While the first lady was with their daughter, Rev. Wilkinson enjoyed the anniversary that was prepared for him.

    Mary Jackson was the mistress of ceremony. The music was provided by the First Baptist Senior Choir. The presentation of flowers were done by Ola and Lanie Cobb. John Smith read the announcements and extended words of welcome to our guest speaker and wife.

  • COLUMN: 'I want to live!'

     A man was asked, “When you are in your casket, family and friends are mourning over you, what would you like for them to say about you?” His reply: “Look, he’s moving.”

    This man wanted to live and that is the desire of almost everyone. Why? There are a variety of reasons but I believe God placed the desire to live within every one of us. Without that desire, we would try to end it all when situations become extremely tough.

  • GRACE NOTES: 'Forgetness' can be a haunting experience

     Several weeks ago, a friend and I were talking about ghosts in closets — things that people say they’ve forgiven and forgotten, but they really haven’t.

    We talked about how difficult it is for people to forgive, and wondered aloud if it’s even possible. Or, if it is possible — and it must be since God tells us to forgive others “just as in Christ God has forgiven (us)” and if he tells us to do something, he always makes a way to do it — is it possible to forget?

  • COLUMN: Walk with the Lord

     Who would be better to turn to for advice on living the Christian life than the Apostle Paul?

    Paul told the Corinthians, “Be an imitator of me, just as I am an imitator of Christ” (I Corinthians 11:1).

    He said in Philippians 1:21, “For me to live is Christ ….”

    In II Timothy 4:7 he says as he comes to the end of his life, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.”
