Why Doesn’t God Perform Miracles Anymore?

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – One of my boys asked me recently, “Why doesn’t God perform miracles anymore?’

It was a good question…a deep question. It’s the kind of question that let’s you know your kid is really thinking about God. It’s also the kind of question that causes pause, makes you think, and cranks your mental processing up a notch.

We talked about miracles for a while, why God performed miracles like curing illness, reviving people from the dead, parting the sea.

Help! I Married a Viking!

 

Prove It Clarksville: Kenny YorkClarksville, TN – The past few days have been absolutely nuts. For those of you who haven’t heard, my husband (Kenny York) is spending two weeks as a homeless man in order to give a voice and face to an invisible population: the homeless of Clarksville, TN.

Back in May, when he told me of his plan, I was a little rattled—but not surprised. This is who he is, and I made up my mind before I married him that I wasn’t going to squelch the part of him that’s not happy unless he’s in the middle of the fray.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of July 20th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The retail sales and industrial production reports had similar stories – gains in June were disappointing relative to expectations, but figures for April and May were revised higher. These data (which are subject to revision) are consistent with a sharp rebound in economic activity in 2Q14 (following weather–related weakness in 1Q14), but also suggest some loss of momentum heading towards 3Q14.

The Producer Price Index and import price reports showed no appreciable pipeline pressures for inflation.
