    Steadfast Baptist Church Revival

  • By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    The work of Christ on the cross demands a response from individuals. Either one receives the message of the gospel authentically, receives the message in vain, or does nothing more than deny responsibility to receiving the gospel. Unfortunately, the pressures of the world often outweigh the call of the Lord to respond to His grace.

  • There are many beautiful and awe inspiring mountains ... the alps and the rockies among them.  One mountain we recently thought about leading up to Easter was the Mt. of Olives near Jerusalem.  When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, Luke 19:41 tells us, “And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it.”

  • Plowshares Farm Center for Education and Spirituality will have a meditation event on Sunday, April 23 from 2 to 4 p.m.

    The event is called “Just Imagine!” and it will feature a communal interfaith walking meditation at Plowshares Farm. According to the news release, those in attendance will join each other in a prayerful walk through the farm, stopping occasionally to “stand in silent reverence of the life surrounding us while sharing dreams and visions of a better world and recommitting our lives to such visions.”

  • Thought for the week: Sometimes we can feel lost and uncertain of the future, but no matter where you are right now, just trust that things will get better. Stay strong-you’ve got this.

    Congratulations to Magnolia Bank on receiving 5 star rating. On Good Friday, I went to the Community Good Friday service at the Civic Center. A great program with great fellowship. It was great to see the community and different churches come together to do the program.
