My thoughts on the Jena 6

I was so saddened to hear that such thing could still happen in 2007. Okay the white boy who hung the hang man's noose in the tree was wrong and he should have been punished for such blatant terroristic tactics. He however did NOT deserve to be beaten within an inch of his life. The young men who beat him deserve to be charged as adults and should be sent to prison for their crime.

Now to the "American's" who are supporting these boys....Hello this is the same as Arab Americans supporting the 9-11 bombers. Black people should be putting out statements saying that this is not what they had in mind with the civil rights movement and distancing themselves from these boys. This was a hate crime and and an act of terrorism and saying the boys should be charged as juveniles is just absurd.

Big step

We moved our church membership to Westwood Baptist in Weaver/Alexandria on Sunday. This is a huge step for us, but we are really excited about it. William started going to Coldwater Baptist when he was a little kid like 25 years ago. I started there in August of 1996. We met and married there. We have a lot of fond memories of our days there and will never forget the wonderful people there. God has been calling us to move for a long time, well over a year. We were just scared to go. We have never visited any other churches except the time William was called as a interim youth pastor. We questioned our motives and searched for God's will for us and this is it. We debated whether we were confusing our own selfish desires for a church closer to home with a calling from God. Some major stuff has been going on at Coldwater and God gave us the violent shove we needed to finally listen to his call for us. When we visited Westwood we knew right away that it was the living breathing body of Christ. God confirmed to us that this was in fact his will through the preaching and warmth of the staff, especially with our children. Several of the people that work with our kids at school go to church there. That is a really big plus for us because some of the issues we had at Coldwater were directly related to our kids. The preaching is wonderful as it was at Coldwater. The music is just awesome. This church fits us and we are so happy to be there. I pray that God's hand will be on Coldwater and they will reach the community for Christ like no other time in history. We just needed a change and God affirmed that for us.

Jesus can rescue us from ourselves if we just let him.
