  • Grace Notes

    (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation this week. This is one of her favorite past columns.)

    Today I did not go to Beall’s Outlet next to Publix in Inverness.
    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.
    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at Publix without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new at Beall’s.

  • A Kodak Moment With My Favorite Uncle

    I was 8 years old and visiting my favorite uncle in Charlotte, North Carolina. Uncle George had older twin daughters but no son. There is where I entered the scene. I was the nephew he loved to buy for and to spoil.
    On one particular visit we attended an exhibition baseball game featuring the 1954 Cincinnati Reds.
    Uncle George had a great idea. We would go early to maybe get some autographs. We did so and I received the autographs of Roy McMillian, Gus Bell, Wally Post, Ted Kluszewski, Joe Nuxhall, Johnny Temple and Reds manager, Jimmy Dykes.

    This past week I got an email from someone who has emailed me before, always with thoughtful, thought-provoking comments.
    In this one he wrote, “Permit me to posit the following: Why not consider the word ‘Christian’ more as an adjective than a noun? That is, ‘I try to live a Christian life’ rather than tagging oneself with a label that could suggest a holier than thou attitude….”

  • If God Is For Us, Who Can Be Against Us

     

    When we have the opportunity to celebrate a special moment in our life, we may want to choose to make changes that could affect our whole life. 

    Remember, changes are OK to make in most situations, but be patient and limit your changes graciously. Don’t be ashamed to ask God for some advice.

    I don’t know why I was so surprised, but I was.

    A few weeks ago, my pastor spoke on a controversial topic, racism, and did an absolutely amazing job, balancing truth and grace.

    That’s not what surprised me.

    What surprised me was learning that he was attacked for it, the target of mean-spirited vitriol, face-to-face encounters and emails.

    People love grace, but truth? Not so much.

  • Our relationship with God elevates us

    Powerful  discourse resonates through the final sentence of a meaningful message. I noticed that recently while listening to a recording. Dr. Gary Staats of Winebrenner Theological Seminary in Findley, Ohio spoke in reference to The True Scholar.  He used as his text Ecclesiasticus 38:24-34 with reference to Proverbs 1.
