Mosley: Lest I ever forget

December 13, 2012

Oh, God. I thank you today for the power to turn situations around. Won’t you journey with me…to the fourth chapter of Daniel? I love this chapter for two reasons. It displays the true heart of man and the unconditional love of God. It tells of King Nebuchadnezzar and his journey as he came into the full knowledge of God. He had heard a lot about the God of Daniel, he knew of his power and his wisdom yet he refused to bow down and serve him. Oh mighty King Neb came to know God the hard way.

Yarber: Are you celebrating Christmas?

December 13, 2012

Christmas is definitely in the air – especially the airways. Christmas movies are on every channel, interrupted by countless commercials showing the perfect Christmas gift. There are movies about a young boy wanting a husband for his mother, Santa promising a young girl a Christmas boyfriend, and a young soldier receiving a Christmas card from a girl he did not know. The titles go on and on – entertaining, perhaps, but lacking in substance. Even the movies that show right winning over wrong make no mention of the real reason for the season.

Jones: Movie classics provide escape from dreary news

December 12, 2012

I stumbled across a sure-fire system for improving my mental health, not to mention my outlook on life during these hard times. It doesn’t cost anything and the results are almost instantaneous.
Miraculously, the hard times have evaporated as my thoughts turn to Christmas, family gatherings and the making of new memories unpolluted by general mayhem and contentious politics.

It was the fourth overtime for Hebron Christian in this very early season. The Eagles’ Taylor Coggins swished the corner three which sent the game to overtime tied at 47. But the Generals were too much for Hebron as Washington used the Eagles’ critical mistakes to turn the tide and defeat Hebron in overtime 59-49.
“It is a hard loss because it is a game that got away from us,” said Head Coach Gary Vaughn after an agonizing defeat, “We should have claimed that one and done some different things toward the final stretch.”
