  • Time to step up to some spring cleaning

    Did you think about how the spring-cleaning ritual developed? Before the advent of electricity and a host of other modern conveniences, homes were heated with coal, oil and/or wood, and lit by gas or candlelight. Soot and grime were the natural companions of winter. Once spring arrived, the doors were thrown open, and everything—rugs, furniture, cupboards, curtains, and more – was aired out, clean out, swept out, and scrubbed out.

  • This week in church news

    Cedar Hill Baptist

    It was good to have Bob and Judy Cull with us as Bob shared from God’s word on prayer. We believe in prayer and in God’s promises, but too often we do not use the power of prayer to the potential it has in our lives. The Bible tells us to pray persistently and to pray without ceasing. Too often we as Christians use it as a last resort. As Christians, we can be confident that God always hears our prayers and will answer them.

    Bro. Joe Davis, a missionary to West Africa, gave a talk about his work in Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau to the church’s combined Sunday School classes. Bro. Davis later brought the message in the Sunday service. He taught as Christians, we are called to spread the Gospel to the world. God knows no geographic or political boundaries — our mission field can be anywhere there are lost people. He said God chooses ordinary vessels to do his work, and we must make ourselves available for his purpose. Many thanks to Bro. Joe and his lovely wife, Joyce.

  • Children are for the young

    It was a nice weekend. UK won, the rain stopped before the creek got too far out of its banks and into the church basement, and Rachel and Chris came down for supper Sunday evening and brought the great-grandchildren. They went home just before both Sandy and I had a nervous breakdown. They are beautiful, adorable and loud. They’re 2 and 4. What can one expect?
    Rachel is expecting her third at the end of this month. Small children and babies are definitely for the young.
