BREAKING NEWS

  • MCGOWAN/Suffering in light of Kingston
    Wednesday, May 24, 2017 6:00 PM The death of Kingston Frazier is a tragedy. But, to be fair and honest, all loss of life is tragic. Both Jackson State University and Provine High School are also grieving the loss of two students in a tragic car accident.

  • EDITORIAL/Crushed, but not without hope
    Wednesday, May 24, 2017 6:00 PM Kingston Frazier could have grown up to become the first astronaut to go to Mars. He could have become a minister, a teacher, or even President of the United States. Sadly, we’ll never know what the future had in store for the sweet six-year-old because his life was taken a week ago this morning in a senseless act of violence that was a hard gut blow to our community we’re all still trying to absorb.

    The only solace we have is knowing Kingston is with Jesus, free of pain and the fear he undoubtably felt in his last seconds, staring down the barrel of a gun, safe from the evil monsters who walk this earth.

  • DUNCAN/‘What Jesus believed about the Resurrection’
    Wednesday, May 24, 2017 6:00 PM Turn in your Bible to Luke 20:27-44 as we continue our way through the gospel of Luke. The passage that we're going to read today is the third time in Luke 20 where Jesus’ authority and teaching are challenged by the religious leaders in Jerusalem. They come again with a question to Jesus. And the question is, frankly, skeptical. But, once again, He not only answers the question in such a way that it doesn't leave Him stuck in a catch-22, but He teaches things that are of deep importance to us today. We could take a long time legitimately unpacking this passage, but let me look with you at three things this morning. Read More
  • PERRY/Stennis and Watergate
    Wednesday, May 17, 2017 6:00 PM President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey last week generated comparisons to President Richard Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre.”  Nixon ordered the firing of independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, precipitating the resignations of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus who both refused to do so.
