Obedience to God is a must for salvation

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).

Black and white stories can be powerful

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.

Parents, use every second wisely

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.

In diversity lies our true power

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.

Why incumbents keep winning

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."

EMS ambulances get new look

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 ...

Thoughts on our dream

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.

DoD restarts spouse employment program

WASHINGTON, March 11, 2010 - The Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts program, commonly known as MyCAA, will resume March 13 for the more than 136,000 spouses who already have established an account, the defense official who heads up the program announced today.

Officials announced a temporary halt in the program Feb. 18, pending a top-to-bottom review, after a six-fold spike in enrollments in January, a surge that overwhelmed the system and caused the program to nearly reach its budget threshold.

Bigger class size bill advances

ATLANTA - A bill giving Georgia school districts more flexibility amid the state's fiscal crisis has passed a key committee.

The legislation allows districts to increase class size by one student in kindergarten through fifth-grade and by two students in sixth-grade through high school through 2013. It also lifts state controls on how schools spend their funding - such as how much is spent on libraries or transportation.
