Here in Madison County, we enjoy a mostly robust economy — or at least better than some of our friends in the Delta or East Mississippi.
  • BUCHANAN/Give Pelosi Congress?
    The day after his “Silent Majority” speech on Nov. 3, 1969, calling on Americans to stand with him for peace with honor in Vietnam, Richard Nixon’s GOP captured the governorships of Virginia and New Jersey.
  • LOWRY/Roy Moore’s reputation depends
    Roy Moore’s reputation depends on denying that he dated teenage girls as a grown man, and yet he can’t quite bring himself to do it.
  • The times are not just “a’changing,” as Bob Dylan sang of them — but they’re unraveling. Dismembering of the culture is at hand, and only the blind and foolish cannot see it. History is trashed and anyone who objects is a bigot, or worse. Pale-skinned Americans are vilified for living innocent lives,
  • DUNCAN/Carried up into heaven
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:50-53, the last few verses of Luke. Luke leaves us with a great passage. He goes right from Jesus’ meeting with the disciples in Jerusalem on Resurrection Sunday to the ascension. When a few weeks before, in the Upper Room, Jesus told them that He was going to be leaving them, they all got sad. Now, He actually leaves, and they’re happy! How in the world could the disciples be happy in the face of the departure of Jesus? Well, there are three things that I want you to see in this passage that will explain why the disciples have responded this way because this passage teaches us about joy, hope, and blessing. We’ll start by looking at verses 52 and 53 and work backwards.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/1 Thessalonians 5:18
    Since we are in the month of Thanksgiving, we will look at that subject for the next several weeks. Our text this week reads; “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” The Spirit of God teaches the souls of believers this lesson of thankfulness. We need our hearts tuned to the praises of God; thankfulness is encouraged under the gospel.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/2nd Timothy 3:16
    We will return to our study in Exodus, but this week we will look at the foundational doctrine of the Scriptures as the Word of God. This passage is well known for the Christian doctrines of the inspiration and sufficiency of Scripture. It is important we base our faith on what the Scriptures teach. It is also important we believe God has given us all we need for faith and practice in the Scriptures.
  • DUNCAN/Jesus stood among them
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:36-49. The last time we were in Luke, Jesus revealed himself to the two downcast disciples and then vanished. We’re told by Luke that these disciples immediately made their way back to Jerusalem to find the Eleven to tell them that Jesus had been raised from the dead. It's in that context that this story happens.
  • BUCHANAN/Red lines, lost credibility
    A major goal of this Asia trip, said National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster, is to rally allies to achieve the “complete, verifiable and permanent denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.”
  • Before the Texas church shooter encountered any police officers, he was run off a highway and dead. He had been shot and chased by two private citizens who took it upon themselves to respond to a heinous crime when no one with a badge was anywhere to be found.
  • The Frenchman has had the reputation since forever, earned or not, of being the sexiest dude on the planet. Ooo la la, and all that. Who knew the Americans, traditionally regarded as unschooled in the arts of seduction, would challenge Gallic supremacy in these arts?
