    I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.

  • Homecoming hoopla in Quincy

    What seemed like thousands of people lined the sidewalks of Quincy’s Washington Street this past Friday afternoon for what participants say was the most well attended East Gadsden High School homecoming parade in recent memory.
    As with the prior week’s West Gadsden High School homecoming parade in Greensboro, most of the parade’s participants were children in dance groups, bands or homecoming courts.
    Unlike the WGHS parade, many of the attendees were the school’s recent alumni and current students.

    How many sporting events have you attended when you didn’t know which team to root for?
    The Wofford/
    Western Carolina football game my wife and I attended recently was a good one.
    Western Carolina came out winners, 24 to 17, with Wofford threatening to score when time ran out.
    It was the whole college football game experience I enjoyed, which included watching the game, fine weather and loudly cheering fans.
