Monday, October 7, 2019

Chattanooga House of Prayer (ChattHop) is hosting a retreat on Saturday, Oct. 26 where mothers can intentionally factor in a “pause” in their daily routine. This retreat, Pause: A Prayer Retreat for Moms, is designed to give busy moms an opportunity for spiritual rest and renewal through both guided and individual times of prayer.

The retreat will take place from 8:30 a.m.-noon at Chattanooga House of Prayer, 3912 Dayton Blvd., Suite 200 in Red Bank. The cost to attend is $20 and includes breakfast.  Childcare is provided for a nominal fee.

Steve Ellison: Right Over These Stones

Plague, pestilence, misfortune, epidemics, pandemics, and contagions of all kinds have been part of the human existence since Genesis 3 and they always will be, at least until Christ returns. Many people observe these and see signs indicating that the return of Christ is near. That is not true. Rather, these things are reminders of the sinful, fallen state of mankind. These things ...

One man’s violent anti-government protests is another man’s just war. First, let me say I do not condone the rioting and violence that is occurring across our nation, following the murder of George Floyd at the knees of white police officer Derek Chauvin.

Roy Exum: My Garden This June

On this, the first day of a new month, I pause during my monthly trip to the garden as I mourn for my country. The protests that morphed into ugly, race-fueled riots are worse than the COVID virus that continues to plague our nation.
