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.

America's uneasy 'browning'

White babies are no longer a majority of new births, according to the Census Bureau. America is quietly "browning," it is said, like dinner rolls in a warm oven. Yet, such change does not come without resistance from those who prefer to remain unbaked.

Most recently, he stepped down from a seat on the KershawHealth Board of Trustees only to fill an open seat on the Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) Area Commission two days later. As always, Napper was humble in receiving council's resolution honoring him, saying it really ...
