  • Experience the living Lord


    What is your experience with the risen Christ? John 20:11. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulchre.
    Imagine you were one of the disciples who witnessed Jesus’ time on earth. You spent several years following him around Galilee and Judea, and you believe his every word.
    The risen Lord showed tender concern for his friends because of the pain they had endured.
    Mary was grief stricken. Jesus showed himself alive to her and her grief turned to joy.

  • Where have all the men in white hats gone?


    When I was growing up you could always tell who the good men were by the white hats they wore. Bad men always wore black hats. That made it rather convenient for those of us who were watching so we knew who would be winning at the end.
    When you were in trouble all you had to do was look for someone wearing a white hat.

  • Church ain’t what it used to be


    I have been going to church for more years than I care to remember. If I tried to remember how many years it is, I might then remember how old I am. Knowing how old I am does not have any appeal to me.
    I rather like going to church. I do not go to church because I have to. I go to church because it is a wonderful place and it is filled with wonderful people. Are there hypocrites in the church? Yes, a whole lot more.

    • Camp meeting to be held in Sopchoppy

  • At least it’s not snowing!


    If somebody gave out an award for grouchiness and downright cantankerousness, I am sure I would take top honors.
    Of course, according to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, there is no honor in being grouchy or cantankerous nor is there room for it in our humble abode.
    For the past week I have been grouchy and cantankerous and any other adjective you might want to throw into that pot of naughtiness. By the time the week ended that pot was boiling hot and about to explode.

  • Pet therapy dog Ryley to the rescue

    From Covenant Hospice

    You may have seen Ryley, a rare seven year old flat coated retriever, riding in the Lion’s Club parade these past two years. But what you can’t tell by just looking at her in a parade is what her and her owner does for others.  
    Ryley was a rescue dog originally from Ohio where she and Michelle Weltman lived.
    They recently relocated to Wakulla after Michelle married her husband Michael following their high school reunion.
