“The Promise” is a musical depicting the life of Christ. 2016 is the 28th year that the people of the Glen Rose area have presented this musical.

The evening began with a pre-show concert which included a demonstration of the area’s talent. First there was a musical concert performed by Mr. Adam Richards. Mr. Richards shared his voice as he sang several hymns. He also shared the history of his performing in “The Promise.” He began participating in the production at the age of 12. While a high school student, he performed the part of Satan. This part was followed by Mr. Richards being asked to play the part of Jesus. He has been playing the part of Jesus for about 10 years.

Clif's Notes: He had been Arrested 226 Times!

 

Clifton Fox, Groesbeck Church of Christ

 

     According to the Associated Press, police officers in Lincoln, Nebraska arrested a man not long ago, after a brief chase. During the arrest, they found burglar tools in his possession.  The criminal, Kevin Holder, is very well-known to Lincoln police officers.  You see, this was his 226th arrest!

 

     Holder's rap sheet is 43 pages long, dating back to 1980. It includes convictions of criminal mischief, marijuana possession, violation of a protection order, assault, resisting arrest, assault on an officer, possession of cocaine.  Many of his convictions were misdemeanors, but he also has been sentenced to at least three prison terms for felonies, including a four-year stretch starting in 1996. Arrested 226 times!  Can you believe it?

Catholic Corner: Are You Guaranteed Heaven?

 

Some people promote an especially attractive idea: All true Christians, regardless of how they live, have an absolute assurance of salvation, once they accept Jesus into their hearts “as their personal Lord and Savior.” The problem is that this belief is contrary to the Bible and constant Christian teaching.

Keep in mind what St. Paul told the Christians of his day: “If we have died with him [ in Baptism; see Rom. 6:3-4] we shall also live with him; if we persevere we shall also reign with him” ( 2 Tim. 2:11-12). If we do not persevere, we shall not reign with him. In other words, Christians can forfeit heaven (CCC 1861).

THORNTON SENIOR NEWS

 

By Janice Bilbrey

Now I hear that Australia is trying buses with no drivers.  Talk about mass destruction.  No thank you, I’ll walk, if I can’t walk I guess I just won’t go.  I can still ride a bike just not too far. 

Here’s to Wilma Lee.  She didn’t make it today but we wish her a great birthday on the 2nd, tomorrow.  I hope she has a wonderful time with people she loves and doing great things that make her happy.

We had a very good meal delivered by our friendly driver Sam.  Everyone enjoyed it so much.  We had ten spunky seniors dining together.  They were Raye Spivey, Sandra Spivey, Fonetta Simmons, Bobbie Reynolds, Sue Gambini, Alama McCurry, Jackie Dunlap, Linda Watson, Pat Jones and myself.
