Posted on November 18, 2014 at 1:07 pm

Small-town communities really blow me away sometimes. Over the weekend, Justin and I had the fortunate opportunity to spend some time with our extended family that we see all too rarely.

    By Pastor Dawn Marie Turner   As many of us cough, sniffle, and sneeze our way through fall, we forget to look at the beauty of the changing season as we are caught in the ugliness of mucous, tissues, and over the counter medications. We end up snuggled in our blankets, drinking our hot tea, and pasting our bodies with mentholated ointments.  We sleep on couches and recliners and become

    Everyone goes through times of trials and adversity. Even though you might not be in a dark valley now, all of us will go through those valleys.

    Disciple – Webster’s definition from the “1828 Edition” states it this way: A Follower; an adherent to the doctrine of another. Hence the constant attendants of Christ were called His disciples; hence all Christians are called His disciples, as they profess to learn and receive His doctrines and precepts. Disciple – Christ’s definition from the Bible in two words… “Follow Me”! Let’s take Webster’s definition, a follower; an adherent to
