  •  One of my favorite New Testament scriptures is John 10:27-30. Jesus is pictured as the good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep. We are the sheep who hear, respond to and follow the shepherd. This scripture reveals two great biblical truths: preservation and perseverance. 

    Preservation is seen in John 10:28-29. Jesus said, “I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish.”

    Jane Masse, who helped Nalley with the event, added, “The community really came together.”

  •  The sweet smell of baking bread, cakes, cookies and muffins has been wafting from a small shop on South Walters Street since February. The “Breaking Bread Bakery” (a not-so-subtle reference to the Bible) sells bread and other goods – all made from scratch.

    For lunch, they also offer a bag lunch, which includes a sandwich (made with their own bread), chips, and a soda.

    Fran Dowell of Magnolia is the owner. She bakes everything herself and says that since it opened, the bakery has been “pretty steady but not overwhelming.”
