  • Often Loved, Often Hated but never forgotten


    I have a bad habit of reading things in print that catch my eye. Whenever I see someone wearing a t-shirt with a message blazed across the front, I am drawn to read it. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t wasted my energy and sometimes I am amused or enlightened. In a day of extreme mass marketing, it is possible to see someone wearing any type of message or advertising.

  • Hope for ‘Good Daughters’

    When my sister was little, she wiped spaghetti sauce from her mouth with a piece of bread.

    This is a significant event in our family’s history because, as the Good Daughter, it is probably the one and only time Peggy ever got in trouble.

    In a nanosecond, Peggy did the bread-wipe and Dad reached over and whacked her hand, which stunned us all.

    Not that Dad whacked one of us, but that it was Peggy—the Good daughter!

  • Why do you go to church?

    Have you ever asked yourself the question; why do I go to church? Certainly there are many responses to this question. But really, why do you go to church? I want to challenge all church goers to really think about that question. If you are like me you grew up in church, it was what your family did and you really didn’t think about it.

  • DON’T BE A LOSER!

    Baseball is a big part of my ministry, and I serve as the head coach at Asbury University. The Asbury team began this season with a 0-17 record. That’s right. We lost our first 17 games – and most of them weren’t close. Have you ever been through a “losing streak” in your life? I have – and I think many of you who may never have even played baseball can relate to what a 17-game losing streak feels like.

  • Super Survivor Sunday celebrated May 20

    The Grant County Relay For Life Committee is asking all Grant County churches to recognize and honor their cancer survivors in some way on Sunday, May 20 for Super Survivor Sunday.

    “So many of the people involved with the relay are active in our churches so we thought this was the best way to reach out and ask that they be recognized,” said Alice Ingram, the Grant County RFL team recruitment coordinator.

    Corinth Christian
    • There are many, many responsibilities that go with the title of Motherhood. A mother passes on her faith in  many ways - work ethic, money, behavior and spirituality. If you want to keep your children’s feet on the ground, you need to put some responsibility on their shoulders. Pretty is what you are, beauty is what you do with it.

  • When your faith is tested

    Wil Wineman was my chaplain aboard the USS Boxer and he was also my spiritual mentor as well and played a pivotal role in my spiritual life. Wil had a deep love for Christ like I had never seen and he took his faith seriously. Jesus Christ was more than a name or a concept to Wil, Jesus Christ was a close intimate friend. So when someone insulted Christ, they were insulting Wil’s best friend and Lt. Wil Wineman wouldn’t stand for it.
