My Elvis Presley T-Shirt

Posted by on 9.29.09 in Personal, Tupelo

When I arrived home from my trip to Canada, Marlene said, “I’ve got something for you.” It turned out to be a very nice birthday present that she gave me last night since I celebrated my birthday on Saturday. She found a birthday card with a picture of Indiana Jones on the front that read, “When they ask how old you are, tak…

Traveling Light

Posted by on 1.9.09 in Personal, Tupelo

This week we’ve been doing some major housecleaning that started when we decided it was time to get things organized. In our particular situation, there is really no demarcation between our home and the ministry because, as I like to tell people, the “world headquarters” of Keep Believing Ministries is in my office at home and in …

We Joined the Church Today

Posted by on 12.28.08 in Churches, Personal, Tupelo

This morning Marlene and I joined Harrisburg Baptist Church in Tupelo. To say that we waited a long time would be true, given that we moved to Tupelo in October 2005 and started attending Harrisburg more or less on a regular basis sometime in 2006. In the last three years we have seen the other side of church life—the view from the pew, …

Tracking Hurricane Gustav

Posted by on 8.31.08 in Current Events, Tupelo

A Strange Week in Tupelo

Posted by on 5.10.08 in Personal, Tupelo

It’s been a strange week here in Tupelo. On Thursday a tornado blew through the area, damaging homes and buildings and downing tree but with no serious injuries. I think it’s left us all a bit jumpy. Earlier today our neighbor called to say that we ought to check our attic. When they checked theirs, they saw lig …
