Just a thought: Lord, you take over

Isn't it true that we spend most of our time operating in our own strength and power? When was the last time you said, "Lord, You take over…" and wasn't it after you had given it your best and your best wasn't good enough to get it done. We often fall into the trap of thinking "This is what I do, and I will do it…Spiritual and impossible things are what God does and when I need help with those things I'll turn to Him." But just as it was for Peter, it is for ...

Well, she was a Christian, having been raised by her Christian mom. But since her dad was a Muslim, even though he had been absent, since he was a Muslim – her being a Christian was apostasy. And then, she married a Christian and got pregnant. And since she was supposed to be a Muslim, and he wasn't a Muslim man, that's adultery. The Sudanese government gave her three days to reject the Christian ...

Impolite audience

Dear Editor: I read the article by Amber Pittman in the Oct. 7 Covington News which summarized the lecture given to the ninth grade class at Newton High School by Mr. Andre Kessler. Mr. Kessler is a Holocaust survivor and shared many personal and agonizing memories from his childhood. This reminded me of a similar lecture given to a fifth-grade elementary classroom in Newton County by another member of the Breman Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum of Atlanta that I had the privilege to attend nearly 10 years ago. At the conclusion of that lecture, a fifth-grade boy stood up ...

Henderson’s miss

You know something? I've never hit my wife. If we make it to December it'll be 36 years, and I've never hit her. She's hit me a few times, though. Folks who know me are probably nodding in agreement and sharing the sentiment, "Not hard enough!"
