  • In church you often hear the phrase: “Where two or three are gathered together...,” and sometimes this phrase takes on new meaning.

  • I am often asked by those who read my column if I actually “walk the walk” or practice what I write here in the paper.
    The answer is I try.
    Do I fail miserably at times? You bet I do. The truth is I often feel either like I am a failure at being a Christian or at best a lukewarm Christian.
    What the scriptures tell us about lukewarm Christians in Rev 3:16 is: “because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

    Micki Lane Parrish was all set to perform at the upcoming state Junior Miss program.
    The senior student at Anderson High had earned the trip by wining the local program in June. She was a member of the advanced chorus, FCA and Beta clubs, had a 4.0 grade-point average and loved to read.

    Anderson Fiscal Court took its first steps in buying land for a county park.

  • Open Bible Church hosts evangelist

    There will be no 8:30 a.m. worship service, the church announced.
    “If you’ve never had an authentic experience with the prophetic, or a close encounter with the one who is the source of all things, this is your opportunity,” the church said in a news release to describe Stamman.

  • I heard someone pray that they wanted peace and comfort in their life for the New Year.
    I understand this type of prayer, as I want the same, much like I am sure most of us do.
    However, Christ promised us a very different life if we want to follow him. Matthew 10:34-35, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword, for I am come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”
