If you’re looking for a little glimmer of hope, a directive by President Trump to reduce violent crimes is having a positive impact in Jackson that, while focused on prosecutions, involves redemption.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:2
    In this passage, the Apostle Paul gives us instruction for prayer: “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” Someone once ask C.S. Lewis, “Why pray if God knows all and is sovereign over all?” Lewis replied, “You might as well ask me why breathe, for prayer to the soul is as necessary as breathing for the body.”
  • DUNCAN/Mercy and grace in time of need
    Please turn to Hebrews 4:14-16. Regarding the fourth chapter of Hebrews, Martin Luther has said, “First, the apostle terrifies us and then he comforts us.” Luther is talking about the warning that author gives us in Hebrews 4:1-13,
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 3:22-4:1
    As we continue our study through Colossians, the section we are in concerns the application of the Christian faith to various relationships. Paul has discussed marriage, children and parents, and now he discusses the relationship between slaves and masters. 
  • DUNCAN/The rest that remain
    Please turn to Hebrews 4:1-13. The author of Hebrews is preaching a one-point message which is to enter the rest only given to us by God. But we have to understand several things in ord
  • PICKERING/Digital divide hinders students
    As students across Mississippi get back to school, it is vitally important our policymakers keep in mind those students and families who continue to struggle, stuck on the wrong side of the digital divide.  As the CEO of INCOMPAS, an association that promotes competition, innovation and economic development in network systems, I am particularly concerned how the lack of broadband access in rural Mississippi continues to hold our communities back.  
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 3:20-21
    Paul applies the new life in Christ to the family in these verses. He gives instruction to children and parents in the context of verse 17: “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
  • DUNCAN/Don’t stop believing
    Please turn to Hebrews 3:7-19. In Hebrews 3:1-6, the author of Hebrews compared Moses and Jesus. Specifically, he complimented Moses for his faithfulness to the Lord and his service to the children of Israel in the Old Testament; however, he also commented that Jesus is superior to Moses because Jesus is faithful over God's house as His Son
  • Emmanuel Macron may not technically be a celebrity, but he tweets like one.
  • Sunday, the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland, Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Warsaw’s Pilsudski Square of “five decades of untold suffering and death that followed” the invasion. Five decades!
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 3:18-19
    Paul speaks in these verses about Christian marriage. It is astoundingly different than what you will hear in the world today. Everyone doing what is right in their own eyes with respect to marriage has had severe consequences in families, evidenced by the societal breakdown we are witnessing around us.
