  • A “sanctuary”...a safe place for everyone

    Last Sunday, my husband and I visited a church in Orlando.
    For years they met at a local high school, and last year they built their own building, a “campus.” Even though the place is huge, you can’t miss the sanctuary. Above the main doors it says in big letters: SANCTUARY.
    We’ve heard the pastor preach before and already had a sense that this church truly is a sanctuary.
    Not every church that has a sanctuary, a dedicated worship space where the congregation meets with God, IS a sanctuary, a place of safety and refuge.

    Vacation Bible School will be held June 23 at 6 p.m. at Cynthiana Baptist Church
    In a world that is always searching for “the next big thing,” some things never change and can never be improved upon. God, His Word, His Promises, and the Gospel will always remain unchanged and that is why we choose to Kick it Old School. We will reinforce this concept through an 80’s “old school” rock and roll concert environment.

  • Spring peepers

    Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers.  There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can lure with their peeping charm. 
    On my way home last week, on a warm evening, after plenty of rain, the spring peepers reminded me of how glorious rural life can be.  Just by listening for a few minutes an entire other world can be imagined.
