Union Gospel Mission felt it was perhaps time to call it quits after 60 years of service to Chattanooga-area homeless people. But supporters, heeding its call for mercy, are stepping up with fresh support.
As I sit and ponder on the eve of Christ’s Resurrection, I find myself broken hearted. I think of the “Easter” story… the death, burial, and resurrection of our Saviour. That’s easy to say isn’t it? All packaged up in a nice, polite, comfortable phrase, “the death, burial, and resurrection *** .” We are at […]
The bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus is a fundamental tenet of Christianity that was foretold in scripture and backed by eyewitness accounts.
The crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ marks a momentous sacrifice for sinners; but our Lord’s birth also is ample witness of the humiliation He bore for the sake of His people.

But recently, God has influenced me to change our direction. The Union […]
I recently had the great pleasure of meeting Makayla Bishop. Makayla is a homeschooled 8-year-old whose family attends Sawyer Missionary Baptist Church. I’m sure you’re wondering why I met Makayla. A few weeks ago Makayla noticed her friends selling coupon books and participating in other “fundraisers” for a number of causes. From needy children wanting […]
Threatened lawsuits in Chattanooga have put open prayers to God in the spotlight, bringing national attention to the public nature of Christianity. God wants to be publicly honored, worshiped and praised. In the town square, in the august meeting rooms of county commissions, city halls and federal congresses, the God of the scriptures demands to […]
