If you’ve read any of my articles here in the Citizen or if you know me and my ministry at all, you know that I strongly believe marriage is “God’s idea” and that His sole intention, specifically declared in Scripture, is for marriage to be the life-long union of one man and one woman.

I believe that we in the church need to help people in their marriage in the beginning and throughout the years. I believe that marriage is wonderful and exciting and fun. Read More»

The other day, I was finishing a very pleasant visit with a couple who had worshipped with us the previous Sunday. They walked me out the door, pulled the door shut, and then realized the door was locked.

Yes, the door was locked and the folks did not have a key in their pocket nor hidden outside. So what to do? It was hot and humid and we were already starting to sweat.

I called the office and one of our ministry assistants picked up a phone book, looked in the yellow pages and gave me a number for a locksmith listing in Fayette County. Read More»
