Our Story

“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”  George Washington Carver 

I watched the movie Amistad. It is the moving account of Africans kidnapped from Sierra Leone and sold into slavery. They take control of the slave ship and end up captured by Americans when the Spanish ship drifts into U.S. waters. They begin a fight to prove that they are free and to return to their home. Just one of many incredible stories of survival, fighting for freedom and dignity that represents the history of all people. Celebrate history, the stories that tell us all who we were and who we are.

New Year, Beginning of Freedom

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”  Abraham Lincoln

I have to admit that I didn’t know the history behind the tradition of Watch Services on New Year’s Eve at my baptist church. I simply thought it was the Christian alternative to engaging in drunken and wild behavior; a time to give thanks for the previous year and say prayers for the new one. Yet the tradition of sitting up late and “watching” until the stroke of midnight has a deeper significance. Read the story!
