  • Local churches minister in the Philippines

    A team of Kentucky Baptists brought healing and hope to hundreds of people in the Philippines still recovering from Typhoon Pablo, a devastating storm that struck the island nation two years ago.

    The six-member team, including members of Rolling Fork Baptist Church in Boston, provided medical exams and treatment to nearly 900 people in the Philippines between Aug. 24 and Sept. 2. They also held worship services and led two pastors’ conferences.

    Rolling Fork pastor Bruce Nichols said much work remains for those trying to rebuild.

  • One day, he’ll return

    Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman, a great Presbyterian evangelist of another day, wrote the hymn “One Day.” It is one of my favorite gospel hymns for it expresses the whole plan of redemption in the refrain:

    Living – He loved me.

    Dying – He saved me.

    Buried – He carried my sins far away.

    Rising – He justified freely, forever:

    One day He’s coming – O Glorious Day!
