  • I recently watched an episode of “Our America with Lisa Ling” about a faith healing ministry in Fort Mill, S.C.
    Ling, a television journalist, took a camera crew to document the very Pentecostal healing meetings to which hundreds of people came, some traveling hundreds of miles.
    Two sisters came with their mother who had terminal cancer, as did Steve, a man in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down.

  • There are many gardening tasks that must be done or are better done in the fall of the year.  
    Things like cleaning up old plant material; fertilizing trees, shrubs and lawns; and protecting tender plants like hybrid tea roses and French hydrangeas.  
    These chores are all a part of garden maintenance and taking care of them now will improve the quality of your garden later.
    Here’s a checklist to remind you of what needs to be done to get the garden ready for winter.

  • The Harrison County courthouse lawn is dotted with monuments reminding us of the soldiers who have fought and died for our freedoms.
    Words like valor, bravery, courage, true grit and heroism are used to describe their service. They seem like such small words for the huge sacrifice they and their families made for the rest of us.
    This year’s Veterans’ Day program at Battle Grove Cemetery honors the men from Harrison County who died during World War II. There are 48 of them.

  • Last week my friend Mike got baptized.
    As the only adult being baptized, he was upstaged by some cute little kids and a baby, but he still shined.
    We baptize babies and grownups at my church because we believe baptism is not so much us declaring our commitment to follow Jesus, but it’s our declaration that we’re in desperate need of his cleansing.
    It’s one of two sacraments we celebrate, the other one being communion.
