Lifelong journey in ministry began at age 13

It was at the age of 13 that I knew I would be destined to be a pastor in the church. I was reared in the United Methodist Church, but my conversion took place in a Baptist church on Hwy. 341, Mt. Zion Baptist Church. One of my childhood friend's grandmother, Mrs. Dolly Young, invited me to Spring Revival at their church. It was on a Friday night and the revivalist was preaching from 1 Kings 18:21, where the prophet Elijah asked the children of Israel, "How long halt ye between two opinions?"

A lesson in finance

The J. P. Morgan fiasco of two billion dollars plus the flagging economy and lack of jobs made me start to think of bank closings of the past. During the Depression, the poor and the elderly did not have multiple organizations to help them such as Food for the Soul, Christian Community Ministries, and the Community Medical Clinic-nor was Social Security in existence.

Kudos to our various law enforcement agencies for working together to get some folks off our streets who needed to be stopped. At the top of our list are Bethune Police Chief Joey Cobb, Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) and U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for arresting two people (and there may be more to come) for the June 23 armed robbery of Sandhills Bank in Bethune.

Letter: Reader’s proud of people in Charleston

Words fail me to express just how proud I am of the people in Charleston for the class they have exhibited in handling a senseless, tragic act of violence committed by a psychologically impaired individual. In this day and time, when our society seems to be seeking lower and lower morals and displaying less belief in God, it is the first and most encouraging sign of hope for salvation of our society I have seen in a number of years.
