"The Expendables 3," now in theaters, continues the franchise featuring well-known action-movie icons of the 1980s and 1990s in an attempt to recapture their glory days. I thought the first movie was average, the second movie was actually better-than-average, but the third movie falls by the wayside.

Last week, we began talking about how obedience to God is a must. We looked at two Old Testament examples of this idea: the Israelites and the brazen serpent (Numbers 21) and the account of Naaman (2 Kings 5).

One Sunday, while sitting around the dinner table, my sister Louise and I began to tell "Daddy stories" - the ones that stretched back to the early days of his preaching life. Since I was born 12 years after he was "made a preacher," as our folks said back then, I could only contribute what he had told to me about those days, not what I had seen.

True power, our power, is in our diversity and difference. It is not in the illusive power we chase in money and things. It is not in what we call unity. We are already unified through breath.

Right after my daughter's birth, I thought I never had enough time to get things done. I had a new baby, I'd just returned to work and I was adjusting to a lot of "firsts." While I enjoyed my precious, new little one and devoted as much time as I possibly could to my career, laundry stacked up, dishes went unwashed, tumbleweeds of dog hair and dust rolled lazily across the kitchen floor and a thin layer of dust coated nearly every surface in my house.

It's no news that Congress is unpopular. In fact, at times it seems like the only real novelty on Capitol Hill would be a jump in its approval rating. In June, a Gallup poll found members' standing with the American people at a historic low for a midterm-election year. Which might have been notable except, as The Washington Post pointed out, that "Congress's approval rating has reached historic lows at least 12...times since 2010."

You may have noticed a different looking ambulance running up and down the roads in Bryan County recently. Bryan County Emergency Services has two "brand new" remounted ambulances and three slightly used medium duty ambulances with a totally new look, BCES chief Freddy Howell said Friday. Thanks to a donation from Orafol, the reflective material and graphic design has enhanced the ambulances' visibility, especially at night. These ambulances were all purchased from allocated and voted on SPLOST dollars and are brand new inside and out. While BCES hopes that you only see the outside of the ambulance, if you do ...

I suppose everyone has their take on the American Dream. For me, it's like standing outside and looking in. I don't know exactly how to frame my concept of the phrase. I would say that most of us natural born citizens would not know. Rightly so; we were born into it. The immigrant, of course, can compare. Further, I would wager, that most of us have never seen The Stature of Liberty standing out in New York Harbor, only once did I see it.
