How do I know that I know Jesus is the son of God?


A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Jesus Son of GodIn the scriptures in John 5:16-23 Jesus claims to be the son of God. In verse 19 in the Living Bible Translation it reads, “Jesus replied, I assure you the son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the son also does.” Sometimes I ask myself a question. How do I know that I know Jesus is the son of God? My mother told me so, my Sunday school teachers told me so, my Preacher told me so, and the Bible tells me so, but I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God because He changed my life where nothing else could.

To me that is a miracle that only God could do. I believe it was David or Zachariah that said Jesus didn’t come to make bad people good, He came to make dead people live. I hope and pray that you have received the miracle of being born again. «Read the rest of this article»

Travel Into the Woods with the Roxy


I have been impressed by the Roxy Regional Theatre’s performances many times in the past, however they have exceeded all of my expectations with their latest production; Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. It is one of their best shows yet!

This musical play merges the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales by adding a new story line involving a baker and his wife who are unable to have a child, and their troubles with a neighbor. It then follows the characters to see what results when the their wishes are granted. Will it be happily ever after, or will it end up being their worst nightmare.

The economic data remained generally soft. Retail sales and industrial production fell in June. Consumer sentiment dropped sharply in mid–July. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) fell 0.1% in June (+1.1% year–over–year) but was up 0.2% ex-food and energy (+0.1588% before rounding). The CPI was up 0.9% year–over–year – and at a 0.6% annual rate in the first half of 2010. Earnings reports were generally good, helping the stock market along earlier in the week. But the major market averages faded on Friday.

The June 22nd-23rd Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes showed that policymakers believed that “the economic outlook had softened somewhat and a number of members saw the risks to the outlook as having shifted to the downside.” Still, “the changes to the outlook were viewed as relatively modest and as not warranting policy accommodation beyond that already in place.” However, “members noted that in addition to continuing to develop and test instruments to exit from the period of unusually accommodative monetary policy, the Committee would need to consider whether further policy stimulus might become appropriate if the outlook were to worsen appreciably.«Read the rest of this article»
