There is a moral imperative to bring the race discussion to the top in earnest especially among conservatives, to listen to the pleas of those peacefully protesting the murder of George Floyd and to pledge to erase the vestiges of racism that only people of color can truly understand.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 40:3-5
    The context of these words is the prophet speaking comfort to a people who have been displaced from their homes and exiled from the temple of the Lord. Isaiah had prophesied in Chapter 39 the future fall of Jerusalem at the hands of Babylon. 
  • So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
  • Isaiah 40 is a chapter every Christian should become familiar with. Handel’s majestic musical composition, “The Messiah,” begins with the first two verses of this chapter, which we are looking at today. The musical uses Scripture about the promise of Christ’s coming and the fulfillment of Christ’s promised work, the saving of sinners to the glory of God. Isaiah 40 is a good place to begin.
  • On March 24, President Donald Trump said he wanted the country and the economy “opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”
  • Stacey Abrams has another distinction to add to her resume — she’s among the most preposterous potential vice-presidential candidates ever. 
  • Twenty-one young men from Louisiana and Mississippi have been enlisted in the United States Navy at the Navy Recruiting Station, 319 Custom House Building, New Orleans, Louisiana. Eighteen as apprentice seamen and three as mess attendants. This leaves vacancies in the May Navy enlistment quotas for this district for only twenty-two apprentice seamen and one mess attendant. 
  • For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 
  • GETTING THE EMSSAGE/Psalm 42:1-5
    God made man body and soul. We were made to be spiritual creatures. God breathed life into man (Genesis 2), not just air into his lungs, but life into his soul. He made man to glorify him in body and soul, enjoying the blessedness of God in both, in knowledge and righteousness. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
  • EDITORIAL/Hope in a new corona hotspot
    We are all ready for this pandemic to be over and it will be soon, hopefully, but we can’t allow our restlessness to lead us into danger here in the new center of a serious COVID-19 hotspot.
  • Under fire for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump, his campaign and his party are moving to lay blame for the 80,000 U.S. dead at the feet of the Communist Party of China and, by extension, its longtime General Secretary, President Xi Jinping.
