Yom Kippur is a complete Sabbath, which means no work can be performed during the holiday.

NewRock continues to grow

Family Promise, a collaborative interfaith nonprofit which provides hospitality and social services to help restore homeless families in the Rockdale and Newton counties community to sustainable independence, has grown tremendously since it began last year.

Just a thought: marriage

Marriage is hard work. It doesn't always feel like work, but let's be honest, every couple experiences tough times. So, here are a few things to consider: first, being different is OK. After all, you are two "individuals." If you were both the same, one of you wouldn't be necessary. Use your difference to your advantage by being one another's completers. Second, wives are to love and give honor to their husbands and husbands are to sacrificially love and lead their wives. Stop telling your spouse about their role and do a scriptural study of your ...

Love speaks passionately

Elvis’ Bible

Elvis Presley's bible sold at a U.K. auction last week for a prodigious $94,600. The Bible was given to Elvis on his first Christmas at Graceland in 1957. He used the Bible until his death on Aug. 16, 1977. The Bible was only expected to sell for around $40,000 but interests peaked in the old Bible because of the many notes and marks made by the famous singer. These notes tell a lot about Elvis' faith and interaction with God.

Burnham: Losing your worship

Have you ever lost something under the sofa? You know that feeling you get when you drop something and it rolls (almost as if in slow motion) right up under there? Down we go scrambling on our hands and knees (with a flashlight or broom handle) in search of that lost item. Oh, I wish God's people would go in search of their worship that way.

You may say, "My worship isn't lost, I go to church." But that's the point. So many have lost their worship and don't even realize it. We go to church ...
