  • Your father’s Bible

    It was an estate sale in North Central Tennessee. It was an old farmhouse chocked full of the accumulated goods of a lifetime.
    One “box lot” among hundreds that caught my eye was a box full of old paperback books containing southern gospel type songs.
    Being an avid collector of such, I looked closely at each book. They were published by Stamps/Baxter and Vaughan, two of the largest publishers of gospel songs in America in the early 20th century.

    Abraham, in no doubt went through a lot of tests between the 11th chapter and 22nd chapter of Genesis. Beginning with leaving his land that he had grown up in to follow the leading of God, to contending for the life of his nephew Lot, his faith was strongly tested.
    His faith was tested mentally as God spoke the words of promise into his ears, telling him to look up and count the stars or look down and count the grains of sand because his children would count more than them.

    However to reach that accomplishment before you finish your second year is remarkable.

    For Williamstown sophomore Brennan Stanley that feat became a reality Jan. 8 when the speedy and relentless guard hit that mark against Trimble County.
    But while Stanley has showed his scoring prowess, Coach Roger Harden praised his guard’s ability to be a team player.
