    Spivey announced his resignation during the church service on Sunday, Nov. 16, at which point he told the congregation the decision to leave had been tough.

    “Without a doubt, this is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life,” said Spivey in his resignation letter, adding the decision had been God’s and not his.

  • Live or live-cut … that is the question for this year’s holiday tradition of decorating an evergreen indoors for Christmas.

    You may think that you are being a better environmental steward by purchasing a live tree; not necessarily. Live-cut Christmas trees are a 100 percent renewable resource that is reusable, recyclable and biodegradable. They are an American product, farms employ approximately 100,000 people each year; and one acre of planted Christmas trees provides the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people.
