Dr. Ron Baity in Spruce Pine

Let me begin this article by saying a Big Heartfelt Thank You to all the Pastors who moved their services to join us at The Tri-County Baptist Tabernacle on October 19th. This meeting was a great success. We had a packed house and Dr. Baity did an awesome job with the message from The Word of God. It was a great blessing to have all the Pastors joined me on the platform to Pray for our County, State, and Nation. It does our Church folk good to see us as their leaders work and pray together. To God be...

Vote! Vote! Vote!

The most critical election of our lifetime is only a few days away. I’m writing to ask you to please make sure you VOTE. In the last presidential election, it’s estimated that 20-30 million Christians stayed home. We can’t let this happen again!

A Thanksgiving to Remember

Every year in November my family looks forward to the Thanksgiving holiday with great anticipation. There are a couple of reasons for this anticipation. The first is the opportunity for our family to gather together and spend time with each other and give thanks to the Good Lord for all He has blessed us with throughout the previous year. Our family is scattered from Maine to South Carolina and the holidays are usually the only time of year we have the opportunity to be together. Secondly there is a tradition that the outdoorsmen in my family have looked forward...

Life’s Lessons: A Purpose for Each of Us

Back in the early 90’s one of our daughters asked me to go to an appointment with her and her husband to Duke.  She was expecting her second child.  After the birth of her first she was told that because of her high risk she would need to deliver any subsequent children at Duke.  With great anticipation of seeing the ultrasound I quickly accepted.  There was some concern because Greta was born with spina bifida and Shaun’s older brother had died at birth with Spina Bifida. The technician began to move the machine over her small baby bump and...
