  • g3 (Grace to the Third Power) ~ A Wesleyan View of Grace Prevenient Grace

    Dr. Lester Spencer|Oct 1, 2018

    Long ago in an ancient but not forgotten letter, a man named Paul wrote an encouraging word to his friends in a town called Ephesus. In this letter stands one of the most famous and exciting passages ever written about God’s grace: “God saves you by His grace when you believe, and you can’t take credit for this. It is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,...

  • Southern Gardening - Potpourri for October

    Judge Peggy Givhan|Oct 1, 2018

    And who does not love the fall of the year especially children thinking about and getting ready for Halloween. I can remember hay rides, high school football games, and going to outdoor movies theaters with a car load of friends. Kids today probably would not know what I am referring to. However it was great entertainment, and most times the parents were involved. I am just reminiscing of times gone by. The month of October can be counted on for bright sunlit and clear blue skies in which the...
