  • Revolutionary War soldier honored at Salt River Baptist

    From staff reports

    Respects were paid April 23 to an Anderson County soldier from the Revolutionary War.

    The Shelby County Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution honored Reuben Boston with a 21-musket salute and grave marking ceremony at Salt River Baptist Church and sang “The Parting Glass,” a song dating back to the 1700s, organizers said.

    Some of Boston’s relatives were on hand for the ceremony, including Luther and Dudley Davenport of Anderson County and Kimberly Boston Ries, who traveled from Virginia.

  • Who do you think Jesus is?

    We live in a time and place where we are taught to be skeptical. We after all, are sophisticated, educated and enlightened. We don’t need myths or superstition, nor do we have a need to acknowledge a creator or a holy God.

  • Do not compromise on the true words of Christ

    Paul Washer, to my mind, is one of the greatest evangelists of our time.

    His preaching and teaching with such great passion and conviction has had a great impact upon my own life.

    Paul is well represented on YouTube. I heard Paul speak at a church conference a few years back. He was giving a missions report to around 3,000 individuals, including many young missionaries.

  • Services planned at Van Buren; Fish fries at St. Lawrence

    The Cross-Tithes Evangelistic Group is scheduled to perform at Van Buren Baptist Church on Sunday, April 23 at 11 a.m., the church announced.

    Revival services are scheduled at the church from April 28-30. Friday and Saturday services will begin at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday service is scheduled for 11 a.m.

    A desert fellowship will precede the Saturday service at 5:30 p.m., and a potluck meal will follow the Sunday service.

  • Our priority should be in seeking God’s kingdom

    Do you believe that the church is under attack in America today?

    I do.

    The tragedy is that most of the attacks upon the church are not only coming from outside the church, but from within. The attacks from within the church come not only from conflicts and discord from members of the church, but from our ambition to make friends with the world.

  • Lawrenceburg United Pentecostal Church plans April events

    Lawrenceburg United Pentecostal Church has several special events planned for April, including Easter Sunday service.

    “Please come and help us celebrate the resurrection power of Jesus,” organizers said.

    The church will also have a candy hunt for children and other giveaways that day.

    A three-day revival with Bro. Darren Burton is scheduled for April 17-19. A pre-service prayer will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the service at 7.

  • When death loses, Jesus wins

    On Oct. 26, a woman named Terri married the man of her dreams, and on Nov. 12, her new husband, Mike, went in for surgery for a lump on his jaw and had 9/10 of his tongue removed.

    Mike is dying from oral cancer, slowly and painfully.

    I’ve been following their saga on Facebook. It is both incredibly sad and filled with sweetness and an ultimate happily-ever-after ending.

    Here are some of Terri’s most recent Facebook posts:

  • Central Baptist sponsors annual Soles4Souls shoe drive

    Central Baptist Church in Lawrenceburg has started its annual Soles4Souls shoe drive to provide shoes to people in need around the world.

    “This is our seventh year,” said Pastor Rick Clark. “Two years ago we passed 10,000 from just this church. Last year we added 3,200 pairs. We are hoping that we can exceed 15,000 total [this year] since we started the collection. The event runs through March 28, and we have received 400 pairs already.”

  • God provides even during a Dickens of a time

    By Nancy Kennedy

    With apologies to Charles Dickens, it truly was the best of times and the worst of times.
       I had just learned I was pregnant with our now 25-year-old daughter. We had wanted another child, and the news was definitely in the best of times category. It remained best and blissful for about a month until the worst of times began.
