that supports all people in finding new life in Christ. Here at Itawamba Christian Church, we have a simple hope: to see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith.
I am old enough to remember when cigarettes were advertised on TV. I know, that seems like it must have been from another planet. In many ways it was! At some point, the transition in our culture away from tobacco produced TV ads that were created to demonstrate various aspects of the habit of smoking.Read More
It won’t be picked up by the local TV or radio and it will not make it on the pages of any newspaper but a tragedy occurred on Chatham Street last night. Camille and I were relaxing outside and enjoying the gentle rain from the comfort of our covered patio. Suddenly a terrible shrieking soundRead More
One of the spiritual lessons which has remained a challenge for me is patience. Never was this more on display in my life than when I was working as a 26 year old Minister in a very traditional congregation in Southeast Texas.

Camille and I have taken a bit of a hiatus from our normal TV watching pattern of British crime dramas to something radically different. We have been watching some shows that feature what are called “Tiny Houses”. Apparently this is a new phenomenon that is gaining in popularity as people are evaluating their priorities andRead More
I have been driving for 46 years. I vividly remember going to the DMV back in the day and picking up my little booklet that I saw the doorway to freedom. I knew I was going to have to pass a written exam based upon the contents of this book and so I knew IRead More
The title for this blog post is a bit weird and maybe needs a bit of explanation. I heard this phrase in an episode of the TV show Fringe. One of the futuristic people called “Observers” were speaking about how the “normal” humans would see situations and not only not have a clue to whatRead More
