Ministry event offers a positive message

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

My heart aches for the innocent lives lost in the recent school shooting, as well as the troubled boy who committed this horrific act.

With the recent shootings, drug busts, news articles of our corrupt society, it is obvious that evil, (Satan) dwells in our world and community. The news touches all of our lives, in some way.

The Bible says that Satan is a fallen angel who is crafty, deceiving and full of temptation; therefore, we must replenish our soul and minds with the word of the Holy Spirit daily.

I know that it is a challenge to put God first in today’s world, but I also know that if we make Him last, we will lose hope for tomorrow.

I believe the Bible is a book of reference that gives us directions for living an eternal life. In Corinthians, the message explains why some people cannot see or understand the word of God: “The man without a spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

God is our positive hope in a world of trouble. I pray that people will read this message and make an effort to support and attend Vision Ministries of Lawrence County at the Mohawk High School auditorium at 3 p.m. Jan. 12.

This is a free event, led by pastor and evangelist Randy Lee Crum. His spirit is on fire for God and his message will be one that people will remember. I encourage people to go and enjoy music, speakers and a message of hope for our community. It all starts with people acting upon an opportunity. They shouldn’t let this one go by.

The ministry’s Facebook page is visionministriesoflawrencecountypa.

  • Patriotic attire rule offends veteran

    Editor, The News: On July 2, as I was checking out of our local Wal-Mart, something happened that disturbed me. A cashier went to the cashier in my lane and said orders had come down from the store manager that no one was allowed to wear any patriotic shirts, pins, symbols or anything showing patriotic colors from July 4 to July 11.

  • Dreaming of being local meteorologist

    Editor, The News: I always wanted to be a meteorologist. I am never wrong or right and I still have a job. I provide data that no one understands while I am warm and dry waving my arms with that important suit and smug smile.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
