Breaking news: Some guy posted a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 2:13-15
    It is hard for us to even imagine the value of our souls. Our lives are like a mist, a vapor that passes away very quickly. We tend to barely consider our days or what life is. The Bible tells us that true life is to know God, and we can only know him through Christ. Because of sin, we don’t know God naturally. We think wrongly about ourselves and him. This passage gives us clarity.
  • For a president who won his office by denouncing the Middle East wars into which George W. Bush and Barack Obama plunged the nation, Donald Trump has assembled the most unabashedly hawkish conclave of foreign policy advisers in memory. And he himself seems to concede the point. 
  • Clifton Clemons, of Hopewell High School won the public speaking contest. He spoke on “Agriculture- The Backbone of Civilization.” Clayton Moore, Birdell Seales, Jessie M. Backstrom and Clifton Clemons won in the contest of quartet singing.
  • A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 2:11-12
    During the Memorial Day observances, I saw a clip of a Jewish lady from Poland meeting an American soldier of WWII who was in the division that liberated her from a concentration camp. She recalled how the soldiers seemed as angels to her, sweeping in on tanks and trucks. They not only liberated her, but they wept over her dismal condition and showered her with food and clothes.
  • After a stroke felled Woodrow Wilson during his national tour to save his League of Nations, an old rival, Sen. Albert Fall, went to the White House to tell the president, “I have been praying for you, Sir.” 
  • Charles Harrison and Frances Fox were named for the Philadelphia High Honor plaque, highest honor to be awarded in the Philadelphia School. Miss Fox, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.E. Fox of Philadelphia. She was Salutatorian of the Senior Class with an average of 93 plus she was president of the Girl Reserve, and was president to many more clubs. Charles Harrison, son of Dr. C.H. Harrison and the late Mrs. Ruby Harrison, was President of the Student Body Association, Secretary of the Adam-Byrd Literary Society and was active in football, basketball, and track. 
  • But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 2:8-10
    Whatever a man loves the most, that he will be most jealous and protective of. The Christian’s chief object of affection is Christ Jesus the Lord. Paul said in verse 7 the Christian is to be a soul “abounding in thanksgiving.” The root of genuine thanksgiving is having received Christ. Once we have him, we must guard our relationship with him, which means the truth about him and our affections.
  • A week from today, Europeans may be able to gauge how high the tide of populism and nationalism has risen within their countries and on their continent.
