    Here we are between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanksgiving really applies to both.
    In Psalm 100, the psalmist reminds us to “Enter his gates with Thanksgiving in our hearts.” In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Paul says, “In everything give thanks.”
    Thankfulness helps us to see life in a brighter light. We often focus on our problems and what we “don’t” have. If we were to make a list, of all that we do have, for which we should be thankful, life would appear a lot better to us.

    Covenant Presbyterian Church will celebrate Christmas with a Christmas Candlelight service featuring music from “Classic Noel’s: Classical Masterworks with Christmas Carols” arranged by John Purifoy .
    Come join us on Dec. 15 at 6 p.m.

  • Recently, a local church pastor stopped by the newsroom to talk about depression — his.
    He had just come through a second bout of it and thought it was important to tell people that Christians and Christian pastors are not immune to it.
    It’s not a character thing; it’s a chemical, brain thing, he said.
    He called his depression a “dark night of the soul.” It made him tired and unable to eat, doubtful of God’s love for him, although not God’s existence.
