    Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Rev. B.T. Bishop who passed away last week at his residence. He was the pastor of First Baptist Elizabethtown for 52 years. He was well known throughout the country. He touched many lives and was an inspiration to everyone. He loved people and never met a stranger. He was a talker, jokester, loved being a pastor, a friend and an all in one guy.

    Thought for the week: Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture you can change a person’s life for better or worse. God puts all of us in each other lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others.
