LYNN JONES: Come to the pary

When Danielle and I served Burkeville Baptist Church in Burkeville, Texas (1970-74), we were blessed to meet a lot of people who made a lasting difference in our lives. One of those people was Miss Letitia Lucius. Miss Letitia for many years had run a boarding house with an attached...

LYNN JONES: Calling for help

Last Friday, I delivered the eulogy at the funeral of James Chase in Booneville. James was a friend who served as Sunday School Director the entire 17 years that I served as pastor at First Baptist Church in Booneville. When James’ wife, Virginia, invited me to give the eulogy, she said, “We will be sad that day, but you can make us smile.”

LYNN JONES: Practicing our faith

In the Christian life, after we have studied the Bible and found out what to do, the step is to go out and put it into practice. That is the challenging part. Let me tell you about an early lesson I had in that. When I was growing up in...

LYNN JONES: Learning to post HELP WANTED

Because of the disruption in our economy caused by the pandemic, I see that sign posted at many area businesses. It would be good, I think, to get some of those signs and pass them around to all the people that we could. Then, when people needed some help in their lives, they could hang out one of those signs and others could respond.

LYNN JONES: A call to compassion

In Jesus’s story about the Good Samaritan, the Good Samaritan not only cared for the wounded man on the side of the road, but he also carried him to a nearby inn. Then, “The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have’” (Luke 10:35). It would have been easy for the innkeeper to say, “You don’t expect me to believe that do you? I’ve heard all of that before. You will never be back.” Instead, he evidently agreed to do this.

LYNN JONES: Peace in a place of worry

I heard about a woman who was worried about so many things that the only thing holding her together was her hair spray. Worry is a big problem in our day!. But worry is nothing new. I know that is true because the Apostle Paul in Philippians 3:6-7 gave some first-century Christians guidance about how to deal with it. This guidance is also for us.

LYNN JONES: God knows us

When I was growing up in Plainview, Louisiana, we had a school there. Because our school was a small one, our extracurricular activities were limited. We had two choices: We could either play basketball or be a member of the 4-H Club. Since I was always big on extracurricular activities, I did both.
