  • Back in the day, there were “men’s meetings.”
    These took place before the regular business meeting, often a couple of hours earlier. Not that the women didn’t have a voice in the business meeting, however; the lion’s share of the decisions were made in these “men’s meetings.”
    Such was one of these. Again, as a young minister, it was an eye opening experience. It all began with the normal task of filling the pulpit on an upcoming Sunday, while our pastor was going to be away in revival services.

    Mrs. Annie Fint, Mrs. Susie Robinson, Herman Shryock Jr., A.D. Cox, Ray Morris Beasley and Raymond Murphy and Bob Alcorn and their families were moved out due to rising water.

  • I was talking with a friend of mine who does some work for me from time to time this week and found out some really interesting information.
    I’ve known “Ritchie” for quite some time, yet never really knew a lot about him personally. Out of the blue he tells me how he has spent much of his young life in jail and even federal prison.
    I was taken aback about that, and certainly had to ask lots of questions.
