Life Care Center Of East Ridge Offers Revival Tuesdays During August

Monday, August 12, 2013

Each week throughout August, Life Care Center of East Ridge is offering Revival Tuesdays starting at 6 p.m., with local pastors speaking.

The community is invited to join facility residents for a time of prayer, singing and preaching.

“The residents started talking about the lack of attendance at the church services and Bible studies we offer,” explained Christian McDonald, activity director. “They wanted to do something to shake things up and encourage more people to attend.”

The first Revival Tuesday kicked off last Tuesday with a group from Brainerd Baptist Church, which also provides weekly services on Thursday mornings. Pastor Steve Rowland spoke.

“The preacher preached a great sermon,” said resident Marion Young. “The music was wonderful, and we had a great turnout."

Charlene Lackey, a member at Brainerd Baptist, also attended the revival service.

“Some of the residents are unable to go to the services on Thursday morning because of doctor’s appointments or therapy,” said Ms. Lackey. “We wanted to share Christ’s love with all the precious people. If one person was touched or blessed, our efforts were worth it.”

Kenny Boatman from Victory Baptist Church in Rossville, is scheduled to preach on Tuesday, and Josh Hill from Bible Baptist Church will speak on Aug. 20.

Light refreshments are served at the meetings.

For more information, please call Christian McDonald at 423 894-1254.

Bob Tamasy: Accentuate The Positive?

From time to time we’re treated to new renditions of old favorite songs. I remember when Faith Hill, then a rising star in the country-western world, recorded a twangy version of Janis Joplin’s classic, “Piece of My Heart.” Barbra Streisand has just released a new album – yep, she can still sing – in which she does duets with popular male singers. For one of the songs, “Love Me ... (click for more)

Please Don't Close The Piccadilly Cafeteria At Hamilton Place

Oh, no. The Piccadilly Cafeteria at Hamilton Place is closing.  Its last day is Christmas Eve.  I will miss the great food they have there but most of all I will miss their servers, cashiers and waitresses.  They are all so friendly and accommodating.  They make it like it’s a home-style restaurant. I sure wish there was some way that Hamilton Place and ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: God Bless Cathy & Co.

The secret to the whole thing is not getting caught but somebody at the Toys R Us store in Framingham, Mass., had a camera when Cathy O’Grady was very quietly paying off all the layaway balances at the popular location last week. The picture snaked its way onto social media sites and her friends quickly recognized the area’s most famous “layaway angel.” Then somebody in nearby ... (click for more)
