Dr. Karen Joy Luce Rogers To Speak At Worship From The Heart Breakfast Oct. 3

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Worship from the Heart Breakfast will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center on Tuesday, Oct. 3.  Proceeds benefit the Mustard Tree Ministries.

"Worshiping God with our hearts means we let His Light shine through us" will be the spiritual message delivered by Dr. Karen Joy Luce Rogers.  

"Karen is a gifted glass artist and gardener. Wherever she calls home in Georgia or Maine, she is surrounded by her creative beauty. Here in Chattanooga, Karen has gifted new homeowners a beautiful stain glass window which she created especially for them through Habitat for Humanity," organizers said.

Rev. Barry Kidwell said the Mustard Tree Ministries offers several ways of helping to connect people to Jesus.

1. We go out on the streets and meet people where they live. We also offer free soup in Miller Plaza every Wednesday from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in order to build relationships and offer the love of Christ.

2. Each Thursday evening, we offer a free dinner and Bible study at First Baptist Church in downtown Chattanooga.

3. Each Sunday evening, we offer a free dinner and worship at First Centenary United Methodist Church called, "Breakthrough Worship" from 5-6:30 p.m. in The Vine.

Linda Price, the music director from Stuart Heights Baptist Church, will be singing praise songs during the breakfast.

Make a reservation by Sept. 25 with your $30 check payable to FCUMC (First Centenary United Methodist Church), P. O. Box 208, Chattanooga, TN 37401.

Bob Tamasy: Hands, Heads Or Hearts

When you look at people, what do you see? Recently I heard a speaker suggest that our perceptions of people typically lump them into one of three categories: Hands, Heads, or Hearts.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all.
