Grace Notes: See Christ the King

The section of God's Word we're looking at today is Luke 23:35-43. It's the story of Christ on the cross. That might seem like an odd section of Scripture to be looking at at this time of the year, but it's chosen because here at the end of the church year, we have this Sunday called "Christ the King" Sunday. And this text with Jesus on the cross is all about Christ being our King.

Letter to the editor

Dear editor: It was wonderful to see all of the citizens of Covington who joined the musicians, children's choir and local elected officials to enjoy the lighting of the Christmas lights at the county courthouse.

What would have been a wonderful and fun evening for everyone was turned into a town hall meeting. This was a result of a thorough review of county and city business and a listing of the accomplishments of various public and private citizens during the past year
