  • Pets and impermanence can teach us compassion

    By Joseph Yates

     

    “Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.”

    That old saying is attributed to Mark Twain. Obviously, he was never around that trembling, drooling little chihuahua that would perch atop the arm of my aunt’s couch when we would visit, yapping loudly and incessantly at nothing in particular, and irritating everyone (but my aunt) to no end.

  • Rural churches anchor communities

    In this issue, I wrote a story about Port Royal Baptist Church.

    I conducted interviews, collected anecdotes and researched the church’s history.

    What I hope comes out of the story is what a foundation a church can serve in a rural community.

    I don’t dare write a persuasive argument for your attendance, but I write this out of my own gratitude.

    I don’t think I would be the same person I am today without growing up in a church.

    The church served so many purposes in my childhood and my community.

    At 8 a.m. the Henry County cross country and volleyball teams kicked off the fall season.
