The 95% Christian by Pastor Kurt Bomar asks us to go the distance to 100%.

Walnut Grove Church The 95% Christian By Pastor Kurt Bomar Avery County When I was in School, if I ever got a 95% grade on a test, I was delighted at first. Then I would look at the test and say “If I had just done a little better, studied a little harder, I could have gotten 100%. There are a couple of Bible characters that I think did 95% jobs and as a result suffered tremendous heartache. The first is Jacob. He ran away from his brother and spent 20 years in Padan-Aram before God told him to...

Superman by Brent Price will give you a laugh and a lesson!

Hospice and Palliative Care of the Blue Ridge Superman By Brent Price, Outreach Programs Mitchell  County We are living in challenging times, to say the least. Sometimes in the midst of life’s struggles and tragedy we desperately need something to make us smile, chuckle or perhaps laugh out loud. Laughter is a gift from God and perhaps this story will deliver on God’s gift. While attending college in Greensboro I worked for a singing telegram service. Belly Business posted an ad in their window that said, “clowns needed” and I applied for the job. After a short “interview” the...

The Work of Thy Hands is a true treasure in “Tim’s Treasures”.

Tim’s Treasures The Work of Thy Hands By Tim Tron Burke County “For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.”-Psalm 92:4 The roar of the old feed truck jumped to life. Cobwebs and black smoke coughed from her tailpipe as the deep rumble tickled the boy’s feet. “C’mon around here and I’ll put you up in the seat.” The skin of the man was tanned from countless hours toiling in the sun, working the land. His overalls worn threadbare in places; badges of honor to this farmer. He...

Poking Holes in the Darkness by Pastor Ed Couser lights up our hope!

Burnsville Seventh-Day Adventist Church Poking Holes in the Darkness By Pastor Ed Couser Yancey County Greetings Friends, Several years ago I had the privilege of pastoring in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  While there, one day our church family decided to take a tour of Mammoth Cave.  I remember walking down its winding trails among the stalactites and stalagmites.  In the background I heard the faint sound of dripping water.  When we entered the largest cavern several hundred feet underground, our guide pointed out the system of electric lights found throughout the cave.  Without warning he turned out the lights!  The...

Chronicles on the Funny Farm are all about the cows this month!!

The Rest of the Story Doug Harrell Clint always had a certain love for the animals, but his wariness most often took over.  He was kinda like, “man those are BIG animals” if you know what I mean.  He was a little more comfortable with smaller pigs as well, but not so much when they got up to grown-up size.  The favorite place to keep him when we were working with the cows remained the truck cab over the tenure on the farm.  Great memories!   ‘Til the Cows Come Home! It was mid-March 2010, and I had only...
