Salvation

 

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

As the Interim Pastor of Pugh Flat Baptist Church of Cadiz, KY my daily travels take me in many directions and I talk to a lot of people and I hear a lot of different ideas about salvation and how to obtain it. With all of the different denominations and beliefs there is it can be quite confusing. I have found it best to go to the Bible and find out about salvation and how to obtain it.

This is what Jesus spoke in John 14:6 in regards to salvation and “Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.” What does it mean to go to the Father through Jesus? Jesus also spoke that our faith in Him is the way to eternal life. «Read the rest of this article»

Apple to provide free cases to iPhone 4 owners

 

Consumer ReportsAcknowledging that there is a problem with the iPhone 4’s antenna design, Apple today said it would offer free cases for the phone to mitigate against signal loss when the device is held in a certain way.

In a news conference at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, CA, CEO Steve Jobs reiterated the company’s earlier claim that all smartphones have similar problems, and that “no one has solved this problem.”

Jobs said the company’s engineers have been “working our butts off so we can come up with real solutions” to the antenna issue, and are continuing to do so. In the meantime, Apple will offer a free case to all customers who’ve purchased an iPhone 4 since its introduction on June 24th. “We’re going to send you a free case. We can’t make enough Bumpers. So we’re going to source some cases and give you a choice.” «Read the rest of this article»

What’s happening at Dunbar Cave?

The Dunbar Cave State Natural Area's Visitors Center

Dunbar Cave State Natural Area — The cave, as you may know, has been closed since the beginning of November.  We always close during the winter to let the bats hibernate in peace.  Usually we would reopen in April, but this year a bat infected with White Nose Syndrome was found in March and the cave was closed indefinitely.  We recently found out that even if this hadn’t happened, we still would not have been able to go into the cave after the first of May.  We have at least a foot of mud in many of the passageways (at least those we could even get into, some were just too slippery to manage) that will take months to dry. 

But we are doing a lot of other programs, which you can find listed in Clarksville Online.  In June we did 118 programs for 1,416 visitors, and we have 76 programs scheduled for July.

Going to see “Smoke on the Mountain” is well worth the trip to Dover

 

Smoke on the MountainThe Dover Community Theatre is currently presenting Smoke on the Mountain in the old High School building, or Annex, as it is called today (110 Natcor Drive) in Dover, TN. Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at the door. There are two shows remaining one on Saturday night at 7:00pm, and Sunday at 2:00pm. So get on out to Dover and see this unforgettable show before it is too late!

Smoke on the mountain takes place in 1938 at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina. The play presents a Saturday night Gospel sing, featuring the Sanders Family in their first night back on the gospel circuit in five years. When you boil it down this show is about having hope and faith, and of course fellowship. Things to which I think we can all relate.

“I really regret it for Duran,” APSU coach Dave Loos said. “I felt like he was really heading in the right direction. Duran really had improved last season and he was really working hard towards this upcoming season.
