While sitting in the waiting room the other day at the hospital, I noticed a mural on the back wall that depicted different sites of Savannah. Right in the middle, towards the bottom of one of the scenes, was a shadow of three people shopping.

I recently watched an interesting show on television entitled, "101 Gadgets that Changed the World." Included in the list were such essentials as duct tape, hair dryers and cassette tapes. It was so fascinating to see that many of the gadgets that changed the world now are obsolete.
Many times today, we hear of people who have given up on God. They feel that because things have not worked out the way they planned, and that serving God is not worth the effort.
On Sept. 11, much of our nation observed a moment of silence to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks 11 years earlier and their families.
The life and work of the pastor is a mystery to many. "What do you do with yourself all day?" "Do you mean that the church pays you? That's your job?" Those are just a handful of the questions I have been asked through the years. Even my own children have been in on the act. One son, as we rode to church together one Wednesday evening (we did not do that often, because I ...
It seems our world is getting farther and farther away from God. God remains just as steadfast and stable as ever, for he has not moved. With people getting away from God, what should be man's goal for eternity - going to heaven - becomes more obscure. More and more, man is trying to bring God down to man's level rather than reaching up to the one who offers heaven to all who will obey ...
The other day, my son and I were talking and, for some reason, the topic of dreams came up.
It will be 11 years this Tuesday since the most horrific attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor.

It's September already. Time seems to whiz by at a rate that is dizzying these days. I remember the long wait for my 16th birthday. Then I remember how long it took for graduation to come. And then there was the wait for my wedding day. But now, I want to scream "Wait!" because everything is happening at a much faster rate. The birthdays and anniversaries fly by, and I can't seem to catch up. ...
Noah shows us an example of faith: "By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith" (Hebrews 11:7).
While reading a book on business, I came across an interesting idea: A business owner should have a strategic view and not a tactical view of his or her business.
In the next few weeks, many area teens will receive their diplomas, which means that they officially will be graduated.
I believe that God is absolutely sovereign. That means that he is in control of all things, and that nothing is outside of his authority. He is the one and only God. He knows all things. He is all-powerful.

Jesus said, "He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him; the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (John 12:48). Knowing how much depends on obeying his word, a study of the Bible should be important to everyone.
First and foremost, I wish all mothers a wonderful and happy Mother's Day.
Few people may realize that the Apostle Matthew may have been the original party animal.
