Amazing, Unmistakable, Grace

 

UnmistakableClarksville, TN – I write small group study guides for Grace Community Church, my church, for over 5 years now.

Because I am on the writing team, we find out the sermon topics in advance. We also know when there will be a guest speaker. Today’s “guest speaker” was Ron Edmondson, one of the founding pastors of Grace.

Ron was here today from Lexington, KY where he and Cheryl now live. He is the Pastor for Immanuel Baptist Church, a church with a rich history of over 100 years of leading souls to Christ. But Grace is just a baby, or maybe a toddler, in church years. But what it lacks in age, it makes up for in passion. «Read the rest of this article»




Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of April 21st, 2013

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesThe terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon and news of ricin-laced letters mailed to elected officials did not appear to have a major impact on the financial markets, but they certainly didn’t help. The major stock market averages were volatile. Bond yields remained low. Commodity prices remained under pressure.

Economic data were mixed, but generally weak. The Fed’s Beige Book noted that anecdotal reports from late February to early April were consistent with moderate economic growth. The Index of Leading Economic Indicators edged lower. Industrial production rose more than expected, but that was due to a jump in utility output (colder temperatures). Factory output fell modestly in March, with strength in autos, but weak otherwise. Seasonal adjustment led to a drop in gasoline prices, pushing the headline Consumer Price Index lower in March, while core inflation rose modestly. «Read the rest of this article»

APSU Women’s Golf Coach Sara Robson balances golf and family

 

Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Sara Robson knew life was going to change. She just wasn’t sure how much.

When the Austin Peay State University head women’s golf coach gave birth to her first child, Kaitlyn Hope (or Boomer, as she’s was nicknamed by the Lady Govs golfers during Robson’s pregnancy after listening to an ultrasound), last summer, she knew that things would be different in her professional and personal life. But nine months into motherhood, Robson is enjoying the balance of being a mom and a Division I golf coach.

Khowst Province, Afghanistan – As the Afghan National Army Soldier lay in the dentist’s chair, visibly uncomfortable and in pain, the ANA dentist started probing the partially decayed tooth that was in need of extraction.

Despite being in a country where very few medical and dental facilities can be found, the ANA Garrison Support Unit Troop Medical Clinic located at Camp Parsa, an ANA training base, is a level-two healthcare facility that treats nearly 300 patients a week.
