  • If you have spent time around church, you most likely are familiar with the expression that we, as followers of Christ, are to be “salt and light.”

    I believe for most of us that expression has become cliché and meaningless.

    Jesus said in John 8:12: “I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

  • It seems that every day something new hits the market in terms of food, diets, and even ways of eating. It’s confusing and often, overwhelming. Should you eat carbs? Should you juice? Is it better to eat whole grains? Does green tea really help to lose weight? How safe are the “magic bullet” shakes and supplements?

  • We are living in an unbelievable time in the history of this world. Never in history have we had so much.

    Technology, knowledge and riches abound that were only a few years ago unimaginable.

     But these incredible changes may also lead to many into bondage.

    The bondage of debt, self-reliance and sin, and people living their lives independent from God.

    There is strife at every turn, whether from threat of nuclear war or global economic down turn or terrorism.

  • Sand Spring Baptist

    Sand Spring Baptist has announced it will hold Sunday school on Aug. 27 at 9:30 a.m..

    The service will be followed by one service for the Lord’s Supper at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome.

    Taylorsville All Saints Catholic Church announces second Sunday Mass

    The All Saints Catholic Church, located at 410 Main Cross St., Taylorsville, announced it would begin having a second Sunday Mass starting Sept. 10.

  • I thought I would revisit some recipes from last year that really helped some folks give their kids healthy, easy snacks for school. I’ve added some more ideas for those who would like some “adult snacks” for the office.

  • 80 YEARS AGO

    Thursday, Aug. 19, 1937

    Goodlowe Drury and W.H. Beasley each purchased lots on Court Street in the Courtland subdivision, and Gip McKee purchased a lot on Lincoln Street.

    A home demonstration program was started in Anderson County. Helen L. Morgan was the agent and the program was to include 4-H Club work and adult work.

  • St. Lawrence plan

     inaugural Festival

    St. Lawrence Catholic Church announced its inaugural St Lawrence Festival in celebration of the St. Lawrence love of the people.

    The festival will be held Aug. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Come celebrate with food, music, inflatables, crafts, children’s games, competitive corn hole games, talent show, play of the St. Lawrence Story, and homemade ice cream.

    There will be a fee for food items, although music and games are free.

  • I have always been amazed at John’s explanation and description of Jesus in the opening verses of John’s gospel. Chapter I:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

  • Whether you have school age children or not, the morning of the first day of school can be stressful. The traffic is heavier, you run the risk of getting stuck behind a school bus, and you’re cursing yourself for not leaving your house 15 minutes earlier. By Friday you’ll have the hang of it, but for now take a deep breath.
