Burnsville Seventh-Day Adventist Church Shine For Him By Ed Couser Yancey County A little boy loved Jesus very much, and enjoyed hearing his mom and dad read Bible stories to him. Every day he invited Jesus to come into his heart and live there. This boy considered Jesus to be his best friend and hero. Children are naturally interested in how they are growing. So, one day he asked his father: “Daddy, how tall am I?” “Last time we measured you, you were three feet tall,” his dad responded. One day as his son was standing beside his dad,...Read More

Bear Creek Baptist Church The Heavens By Rev. Bruce Cannon Mitchell County The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork. (Psalm 19:1) I have always been fascinated with the heavens. As a young boy, I can remember staring into the heavens and being so amazed at the beauty, the vastness and the expanse of them. How amazing! A moon rise coming up out of the water, a starry night or a sunrise or sunset all speak to the magnificence of creation. But, the mountains aren’t half bad either. And, they have already begun their...Read More
Christian Action League Evil, the Rapture, Responsibility, and Radiation By Dr. Mark Creech Just a few days ago, our country commemorated the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon.

Bennet in his book, Why We Fight. “Not since Ronald Reagan termed the Soviet Union an ‘evil empire,’ and thereby called down...Read More
Marlene’s Meditations Legacy by Marlene Houk Burke County Our legacy may bestow upon us that bulbous nose or sprinkling of freckles from our long-gone relatives. Perhaps that fiery temper and musical ability from great-aunt Annie appears again in four-year-old Peter. What is your legacy? Legacies can be heirlooms such as a grandmother’s wedding ring or a treasured secret recipe handed down such as my great-aunt’s peach pie. When his cousin moved to South Africa, my son still acted like him. Quirks and preferences remained the same for my ten-year-old, surprising me with their consistency. He still acted the same...Read More
Berry Chapel Baptist Church What Is Life By Pastor Steve Williams Mitchell County The Bible tells us a lot about life. James 4:14 says …. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. Our lives have also been compared with grass that withereth away, and flowers that fadeth away. All three of these comparisons tell us a great truth about Life, “It Is Short.” So, if life is short, what must we do with it? We must do all we can to line up our lives with...Read More
