  • My friend Tara recently asked me about a book that swept through the Christian culture like a Category 4 hurricane back in 2000, “The Prayer of Jabez,” by Bruce Wilkinson.
    Tara jokingly wondered aloud if maybe her pooh-poohing the book and not jumping on the “pray like Jabez” bandwagon was coming back to bite her in the butt. Maybe her life would be different if she had been a Jabez prayer pray-er.
    If you’re not familiar with the book, here’s a mini crash course:

  • MARY HENSON CIRCLE
    On Tuesday, July 3 the Mary Henson Circle of Elmarch United Methodist Church met at the church for it’s monthly meeting.

  • The Harrison County Diabetes Coalition is constantly trying to educate the general public as well as persons with diabetes about the disease. Although diabetes cannot be prevented the beginning can be delayed by good health habits. Complications that occur when blood sugar is not under good control can also be prevented.

    Most are heirloom varieties; they were fertilized once at planting with fish emulsion and immediately mulched with newspaper and pine straw. One irrigation occurred during a hot, dry spell but that is it.
