The Value of a Brother

Written by Michael Cobb, Dalraida UMC

 Imagine the scene. Down one point with only a few seconds left, the basketball player stands at the free throw line ready to shoot. Players are on either side of the foul lines, waiting, crouching, ready to take the rebound if there is one. The crowd quiets. Cheerleaders wait in anticipation. The game has come down to this one point. Years of practice and conditioning have converged into a moment and for one player, and everything rests on his shoulders.

Advent-ure 2017: Let's Worship Jesus

Written by Bob Crittendon

For the last few years, I have composed a series for Advent that I have entitled: 25: A Christmas Advent-ure.  This year, I want to focus on the importance of allowing the component of worship to enhance your celebration of Christmas.  I have listed 25 different Scripture verses in four overall categories: Prophecy, Personality, Promises, and Performance.

The holiday season is upon us.  A time for fun, fruitcake and family - our lovely relatives. Family ties form in many ways, whether by blood, marriage, adoption or the bond of life experiences such as military service, our college years or maybe a life-long friend.  While many of us light up at the thought of spending hours drinking hot chocolate and ogling old family photos, others of us become anxious at the idea of being around family members.

Defending Our Rights

Written by Sam Whatley

Years ago, a construction foreman lost his job because he would not substitute cheaper materials for the ones called for in the blueprint. The project manager was cutting corners to pad the owner’s pocket. The foreman did not challenge the company in court. He lost his income, but gained a reputation for being honest. He forgave the one who persecuted him.

The Best Gift Ever

Written by Kemi Searcy

Years ago I went to a local mall on an errand, when a beautiful, rich, pink, name-brand dress captured my attention. I immediately could see one of my daughters in it. She will really look so gorgeous in this I thought! Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough money on me. I returned weeks later to purchase the dress, only to find it was sold out. I had to special order it and by the time I got the outfit, I had not only paid for the exorbitant cost of the name-brand dress, but also the cost of shipping. Yet, when I anticipated her joy as I gave it to her at Christmas, the cost seemed worth it.

Faith at Work

  • Charnelle Joiner

    RRJ:  What goals have you set and achieved? In your opinion, where does your drive come from?

     

    Charnelle:  Two of the first goals I set were to obtain my cosmetology license and become a certified group fitness instructor. Once those goals were met, I started setting new ones. I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, commissioned in the Air Force, obtained my Teachers of English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL) certification and began teaching English as a Second Language.
