Anawalt, WV

I had a wonderful trip with Buddy Crews and Gene Edwards to Anawalt, WV last week. They were taking food supplies to the food bank in the community. It was an honor to see the work of our Food Bank ministry in cooperation with the Food Bank of Anawalt. Here are some pictures:

Matthew 5:43-45; Luke 6:35-36         The Problem of Good
8/19/12, 8/9/15            D. Marion Clark


I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

The Stank Eye

This blog post is for our new Senior Pastor, Sam Smith. Sam, you should now be practicing your "stank eye," to keep order in this congregation. I've tried, but this is a tough bunch.

Raising Dry Bones

Ezekiel 37:1-14                                   Raising Dry Bones
8/2/15              D. Marion Clark


When Jewel Morrison sang the song “Dem Bones” a couple of months ago, I was so impressed with the song that I promised to preach on the story of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel. So, thank you, Jewel, for singing the song again today in preparation of the sermon.
