Saint Paul's Episcopal Church Hosts Evening Get-Away For Women Feb. 20

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church will host an evening get-away, designed specifically for women, on Thursday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. in Key-Andrews Parish Hall. This outreach event is being hosted at churches nation-wide and is designed to bring women together to celebrate who God created them to be and to recognize that being generous with their time, treasure and talent is a reflection of God’s love, said officials.  

This women's outreach event was created by the Gestures of Generosity program and is intended to bring together women from all walks of life to share a common bond and, in turn, feel a greater sense of belonging within their community. 

The evening will include music, games, giveaways, food, and heart-warming storytelling. South African singer/songwriter Ilonka Deaton will perform.  

Tickets are $10 and include a gift bag.  VIP tickets are available for $20 and include reserved seating, a meet and greet and a CD by the artist. Tickets are available at the Church Office (266-8195) or by contacting Cheryl Gaillard at 602-5663 or cheryl@stpaulschatt.org. To learn more about this event, visit www.gesturesofgenerosity.com. 



Bob Tamasy: Integrity, Like Pregnancy, Is All Or Nothing

You can’t be “a little bit pregnant.” A woman either is – or she’s not. It’s the same with integrity. One can’t have “a little bit of integrity.” It’s pretty much all or nothing. Once again the thorny issue of integrity ... (click for more)

Christian Disagreement

A very long time ago, someone gave me very good advice, “Make your words soft so that when you have to eat them, they will not taste so bad.”  It seems to me that the Bible does not expect Christians to live in total agreement.  Rather it seems that the Bible expects that Christians will disagree with each regularly.  The sign to the rest of the world indicating ...

Chattanooga Has Always Been A Battleground Between Good And Evil

Roy Exum: Our 92-Year-Old Victim

It is with great pride, and far greater relief, that I can report a “caretaker” is far different than a “boyfriend.” A story out of Memphis earlier this week morphed into a virtual fireball that had such power it appeared on the front page on a London newspaper and other news outlets all around the world when it was reported by the Associated Press a 28-year-old man had assaulted ...
