Old college notebooks can stir up more than just college memories.
Sorting through things at my mother’s house continued the Fourth of July weekend. And needless to say, I was often reminded of days gone by.
Cup of Joy
There was no one to fight with...
I spent last week in Morristown, Tenn., with my parents. Every year during the summer, we make the trek to the holy land – The Great Smoky Mountains.
Ordinarily, we stay somewhere in Gatlinburg, but this year we stayed in a cottage on Lake Cherokee in Morristown. It was beautiful. The water was breathtaking, and the view of the mountains surrounding the cottage was as magnificent as any I have ever seen.

In perusing the Session records of Edmondson Presbyterian Church, I found some fascinating history and commentary on how the church really got into people’s personal business way back then. This church was founded in Whitehaven, Tenn., in the 1800s.
If you think your church pays too much attention to your personal life now, you should have lived then. The Session was judge, jury and executioner.
