  • A well-known New Testament story is that of the Rich Young Man who came to Jesus to ask how to inherit eternal life. He was a morally upright man, even a man of some faith, but Jesus saw that he was too tied to his possessions. So he told the man to go sell what he had and give the proceeds to the poor.

    If you have any information on these two cemeteries, email me at jbowen@theandersonnews.com

  • 50 YEARS AGO
    July 20,1961
    Pleasant Hill Christian Church was destroyed by fire at 5:30 p.m. July 19.
    Several residents heard when lightning struck but did not know what was hit. Charles Burgin immediately went in his car to see if the church had been struck but didn’t see any evidence so he returned to his home for supper. A short time later he looked in the direction of the church and saw the entire building in flames.
    Lightning struck in a gable and was burning in the loft.
