Report from the Brooksville Raid Event - January 20-22, 2012


God was so awesome this past weekend at Brooksville.  The weather was beautiful and the crowd very large.

Sunday morning we were blessed to again have the “Joyful Noise” to lead our music.  The bass player told me after the service we had over 210 folks in attendance.  Most were spectators as the officers again kept the soldiers out for morning colors past their scheduled time.

Devotion for Week of January 23, 2012 - "Do This In Remembrance"

Do This in Remembrance


Luke 22:19, “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.”

One Sunday, shortly after the war, while Gen. Robert E. Lee was in Richmond, he was placed in a position where he showed his Christian character.
