While down in South Georgia this past Friday and Saturday, I ventured over to Thomasville via Boston. Georgia, that is.when I noticed partially-covered signs signifying the road was closed in ‘X’ number of feet. As I passed three such signs, I noticed the orange and white barricades staged beside the road. This all points to one thing.The old ‘one hump’ bridge over the railroad is going to be replaced.

So sad, but so needed. The old ‘one hump’ bridge is the original bridge over the railroad track from back in the day when the road (now GA 364) was US 84. It seems to be about 1.5 lanes wide with damaged side rails made of concrete vertical and horizontal posts. I cannot say why there seems to be some sort of legendary romance with this unsafe object, but truth be told, it will be sad to see it go.

It seems this is how folks treat salvation. They look forward to it, but for some unknown reason called “human nature” they want to hold on to the old. When a person turns to Jesus, they need to drop all and go!

This week, remind someone you see to let go of the old and embrace the new. That is the new life offered because of the Savior. So what if they lose some old nostalgic feeling or weight that is dragging them down? They will quickly forget all that once they are in His fold.

God Bless,

      While I realize TV is only entertainment for the most part, but ‎must the writer's, producers,and all involved have to get the facts so badly wrong and thus call it a comedy?

       I watched an animated film that was allegedly a "Bee Movie" (I won't call it by name... hint, hint) that was so incorrect that I could not find the comedy in it. First off, boy bees do not work and do not have stingers...

       Then I watched some ridiculous series about a 'Good Place' (shall we say) where 'Michael' would not say the locale was Heaven, but a good place as opposed to the bad place. Really? How lame. Not funny. Ugh, I give up.

       My thought here is the world refuses to believe fact, and likes to somehow make Heaven and Hell somewhat similar, rather than being totally opposite. Wake up world!

       This is one reason we are starting an outreach in the community. It is so people can come to know Jesus, the real Truth. Please reach out to everyone so no one thinks there is a 'Good Place" but rather knows there is a real Heaven‎, and sadly a real He'll for non believers. 

 

God Bless,
Kurt

       I have been working on computers for many year‎s now, and one thing about them really bothers me. I have to remember so many passwords, I forgot the password for my microwave!

       Sounds silly I know, but do you ever feel like that? Well worry not my friends. Some days it feels like we ‎are wired to worry about the wrong thing. I know God did not make us that way, but I swear...

       It is so good to know the password to eternal life is Jesus and we do not need to worry about a password for the pews at church! This week, take advantage of our no-password-pew offer and invite someone you have never seen come to church. They just might ‎suprise you come Sunday! 

       If we keep spreading His Love, hatred will be trampled and fade away!

God Bless,

Kurt
