What is Life? by Pastor Steve Williams compares Life to a Golf Game??

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.

Drugs Drugs Drugs An editorial on Drug Courts by Barbara Harrell

Drugs Drugs Drugs By Barbara Harrell There are many prospectives on the drug issues that we face in society today. After a conversation with our district attorney I decided to shine the light on 2 of these. The first is Drug Courts.  For over two decades, Drug Courts have led the charge towards a more humane, cost effective justice system.
