This weekend, we are taking some time to reflect, remember and celebrate the legacy of a great civil-rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We'll refocus our attention on what we need to do to enhance our future. Dr. King fought for justice and equality for all people. He believed that all men were created equal and that everyone should be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Happy 2013! Many of us started the new year by making New Year's resolutions - sometimes planning with great detail and motivation - but many of us will break or downgrade those resolutions quickly.
WASHINGTON - Let's start the new year with a conundrum as old as the Republic: When religious convictions clash with secular laws, how far should government go to accommodate religious claims of conscience? From Colonial conflicts over the refusal of Quakers to take up arms to the more recent refusal of Jehovah's Witnesses to salute the flag, American history is replete with robust arguments over the limits of "free exercise of religion" as guaranteed by ...

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore." - Psalm 133:1-3 KJV
As this year slowly comes to an end, we'll hear of parties, resolutions and celebrations of a new beginning. "Happy New Year!" will ring throughout the streets as people greet each other with smiles. Churches will have Watch Night services, and many people will watch the countdown broadcast live from Times Square in New York. The occasion has become a common event, and most of us treat it as just another day. But let this ...
The year 2012 is almost over, and Jan. 1, 2013 is on the horizon. As we prepare to say goodbye to 2012 and embrace a new year, we can look back, reflect and anticipate things to come. Many things happened in 2012 - some good and some bad; some expected and some unexpected; some gladness and some sadness. Throughout the myriad of experiences, God remained in charge. During the past year, we endured a sluggish ...

Liberty County, with her rich history, is one of the few counties in Georgia that still observes the signing of the historical document. The Emancipation Proclamation Observance Day celebration started many years ago at the Crossroads community in Riceboro. Dedicated leaders and members of the community have kept the ...

Eight years ago this April, my mother passed away. It has been a while since that thought has caused me to burst out in tears, but it still fills me with deep sadness. I miss her terribly. I would give just about anything to be able to hear her deep Southern drawl on the telephone again.
