When the now late Republican Gov. Daniel Kirkwood Fordice appointed a young legislator from Ranzkin County to the position of State Auditor in 1996, not many people outside the political confines of the Capitol or perhaps his House district knew him. This week, Dewey Phillip Bryant closed out his final of two terms as Mississippi’s 64th governor.
  • President Roosevelt nominated Attorney General Frank Murphy to be an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court and Solicitor General Robert H. Jackson to succeed him as head of the Justice Department. The president also sent to the Senate the nomination of Judge Francis Biddle of the third circuit court of appeals to the solicitor general.
  • Fifteen years after the U.S. invaded Iraq to turn Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship into a beacon of democracy, Iraq’s Parliament, amid shouts of “Death to America!” voted to expel all U.S. troops from the country.
  • In the torrent of idiotic commentary unleashed by the killing of Qassem Soleimani, Colin Kaepernick’s deserves a place of honor. 
  • Dr. W.H. Banks of Philadelphia has been appointed by Governor Hugh White to serve a five-year sermon the State Board of Health. The term started at the beginning of this year.
  • Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.   
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Luke 2:21-32
    In this passage we are given more teaching with respect to Jesus when he was an infant. We are not as familiar with this passage as we are the birth narrative of the Lord, but it is very helpful for us to consider the truths held out for us here.
  • As of Dec. 26, Kim Jong Un’s “Christmas gift” to President Donald Trump had not arrived. Most foreign policy analysts predict it will be a missile test more impressive than any Pyongyang has yet carried off.
  • The great performer Bing Crosby reached the height of his stardom about 80 years ago, but every Christmas season he makes a triumphant return to American radio and malls and other public places. 
  • The House Boys’ basketball team won the county state championship at Coldwater. House’s crack quintet, playing a smooth, fast-breaking game, capped off the finals by 29-21 against Linwood. Leading them to victory was their alert captain, Chuck Instead, who no disputes was the shining star of a star-lit ball team. Trophies were presented the tournament winners by County Attorney Clayton Lewis.
  • For New Year’s Day, I thought I would share with your some meditations written by Richard Sibbes around the year 1600. Sibbes believed Christians should spend time thinking deeply on spiritual truths and he wrote meditations to that end. He was called the “heavenly doctor” for his godly preaching and heavenly manner of life.
