God has been good to Covington author Joyce Fincher, who has a new inspirational book available online, "He'll Lead You Through Your Sea."
It's her testimony of how God has led her through the darkest times of her life, as well as through the happy times. Fincher believes that she is simply God's vessel through whom he has written the story of her experiences.
These days it seems rare for a pastor to experience a long tenure at one church. A quarter-century of service is certainly an occasion worth celebrating, and one local church is marking such an achievement: First Presbyterian Church in Covington this weekend is commemorating the 25th anniversary of its pastor, the Rev. Billy Wade.
Traditional folk hymns of the South are combined with a modern liturgy and presentation of the Biblical Christmas story as Meridian Herald presents its 17th annual Southern Folk Advent at 4 p.m. Saturday at The Old Church at Oxford College.
