    February 18 2019 by Layne Wallace | with 1 comments

    My soul is troubled by the Houston Chronicle’s report of sexual abuse within the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The news is shocking and shameful. The Chronicle was able to document abuse of over 700 victims over the course of 20 years...

    What do you do when faced with a frustrating situation? Have you ever tried to make your point and people just won’t listen? Have you ever expected something to happen, only to be disappointed once again? Been relentlessly targeted as a...

    According to an insect identification database, 647 types of bugs and insects are found here in Alabama. Some downright scare me. I looked at images of each until I located the entry most resembling the flying insect I watched from a chair on my...

  • Thinking Christianly

    February 11 2019 by Curtis A. Woods | with 0 comments

    When regenerate followers of Christ discuss race relations in America in general or in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), we should do so without being overly critical or biting toward one another. Ad hominem attacks only engender more heat...

  • Blackface mars ‘the soul & the mind’

    February 8 2019 by Marshal Ausberry | with 0 comments

  • Billy Graham via TV and the big screen

    February 6 2019 by Phil Boatwright | with 0 comments

    A year has passed since Billy Graham died on Feb. 21, 2018. I can’t help but think the world is worse off whenever a man of God dies; true believers have the light of Christ in them and when that light is removed, the world becomes a little...

  • Keep on going to church

    February 5 2019 by Steve Playl | with 0 comments

    We got there about 10 minutes early but still were too late to get an inside seat, so we sat outside at the Robert F. Thomas Chapel. Music rolled through the front door of the little church house and joined the notes that were piped out through...

  • The playbook

    February 1 2019 by John Yeats | with 0 comments

  • Seeing Jesus in the Holy Land

    January 28 2019 by Redunda Noble | with 0 comments

    Our family recently returned from spending a week in Israel. It wasn’t my first time visiting the Holy Land, but it felt like it. Honestly, I could visit Israel a hundred times and each time it would feel like the first. It’s a special...

  • Who’s your Waffle House waitress?

    January 25 2019 by Lee Clamp | with 0 comments

    You never know who you may run into at a Waffle House.   “What’s your name?” I asked our waitress as she gave us our menus. “Misty,” she said. We began to talk a little as I ordered a couple of eggs, and then I...
