  • Wednesday, July 20, 2016 6:00 PM Paul writes this letter from prison. He is chained in a dungeon awaiting a terrible death. He is being abused this way unjustly. His “crime” is being an advocate of the truth of God in Christ. Yet his main concern is to encourage Timothy to be faithful to the Lord in what he has been called to do. Paul is concerned because Timothy is facing severe trials and Timothy has a propensity to being fearful and discouraged. In these verses we find encouragement for Christians facing difficulty.

    In this week’s article, I'd like us to look at seven ways that we could elaborate this prayer and I’ll give you some scriptural language in which we do that and we’ll just practice praying this prayer back to the Lord together.

    What I remember most about Darryl Strawberry's one summer in Jackson was the explosive sound of his bat launching the baseball. It was shocking, really, no matter how many times you heard it. And we heard it often in 1982.

    Mississippi Sports Hall of Famer Johnny Pott, who grew up and learned to play golf on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, probably finished highest of all Mississippians by tying for ninth at Congressional in 1964.

    This is written on Memorial Day morning, the morning after it was announced that both Ole Miss and Mississippi State baseball teams will host NCAA Regionals at once for the first time ever.

    It is written on the day after Southern Miss's stirring 3-2 victory over tradition power Rice for the Conference USA Baseball Championship. Has a relay play from the outfield ever been executed more perfectly? I think not.
