National Security Acentury ago at this time, the old order of Europe was wracked in crisis drifting toward war. Just two weeks before, the crown prince of the Hapsburg Empire, Franz Ferdinand and his wife were gunned down by a young nondescript nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in the Balkan city of Sarajevo. For ve weeks during mid-summer, the European capitals teetered over war, nally falling into the abyss as the calendar turned to August. At rst, the argument was between Austria and Serbia, but a series of treaties enfolded other nations in the crisis. The Triple Alliance was a pact that included Austria, Germany, and Italy. The counterweight was the Triple Entente which united Russia with England and France. As one domino fell, others tumbled. Austria-Hungary was determined to teach the Serbs a lesson and quash the budding nationalist movement. They made a series of demands that were impossible for the Serbian government to accept. Germany blindly pledged their support to the Austrians. The Romanovs of Russia backed their ally the Serbs. As one nation mobilized, others would follow suit so they wouldnt be caught unprepared. England and France attempted to act as a mediator but were unsuccessful. Germanys primary war plan, written by the now dead Erich von Schlieffen, saw France as the principle enemy and most of its troops moving to the west. In late July as the general mobilization force moved westward by train, France declared its neutrality. When Kaiser Wilhelm attempted to stop the war plan now in motion, his defense minister Von Moltke informed him that it was not possible to halt the plan. In other words, they could implement the plan but not stop it once underway. A series of miscalculations, entangling alliances and poor communication swept all of Europe into what we now call World War I. Many historians feel that it was the most signicant event of the second millennia because of its effect on borders, nations and the predicate for a second world war only a generation later. Four years of brutal warfare led directly to the breakup of four old order empires and their ruling families: the Hapsburgs (Austria-Hungary); the Hohenzollerns (Germany); the Romanovs (Russia); and the Ottoman-Turks. Two marvelous books by the late historian Barbara Tuchman capture this sequence. The Proud Tower describes the rotting old feudal order of the late 19thCentury. The sequel is the Pulitzer Prize winning Guns of August which describes the rst month of the war in 1914. A half century ago, President Kennedy insisted that all of his national security team read Tuchmans second book to absorb the lessons. Unfortunately, this initiative did not prevent or limit our involvement in Vietnam. An irony of the war was that the leaders were largely cousins. In the 19thCentury, the grandmother of Europe, Englands Victoria, had nine children, all of which ruled or were married to the ruler of nine European nations. Some argue that in one sense, the war was a family squabble. After three years of warfare, the belligerents had been bled white. The French army actually mutinied. The military leaders were unable to craft victory in any sense. The entrance of America in 1917 and the arrival of two million doughboys a year later were sufcient to break the stalemate. Finally, at the 11thhour of the 11thday of the 11thmonth in 1918, an Armistice was declared. Six months later at Versailles on the outskirts of Paris, a peace conference ensued that was badly botched. Borders were drawn; nations were created; different ethnic groups were joined; surviving empires were expanded; spoils were handed out; and Germany was severely punished. The war to end all wars as many thought did no such thing. The aftermath of the war is greatly telling, especially in the Middle East. A classic example is Iraq, now descending into chaos once again. Three ethnic tribes (Sunnis, Shia and Kurds) were joined under French protectorate. A ruthless Bathist (Sunni) leader Sadaam Hussein was able to tamp down ethnic differences with an iron hand. Once he was deposed by America in the second Gulf War, the tribal differences resurfaced. What we are seeing today is the natural order that disconnected European leaders were unable to perceive or resolve at Versailles. What goes around comes around, even a century later.For the past week there have been headlines and turmoil over the 19-year-old teenage girl who, along with her apparently wealthy parents, takes African Safari hunting trips. She then, in turn, has begun posting her kills onto her personal Facebook Page. Her name is Kendall Jones. She is a Texas Tech University cheerleader and an avid hunter. She began taking trips to Africa, with her parents, at the age of nine. So wheres the problem? It seems that animal lovers, all over the world, are accusing her of animal abuse, killing endangered species and have demanded that her pictures be removed from Facebook (too awful to look at). A petition to force Kendall to remove her page, because it promoted animal cruelty had gained over 40,000 signatures in just a week. Facebooks CEO did in fact fold to the pressure and removed Kendalls photos from her Facebook page. Now, there is even a petition circulating to have Kendall banned from the entire continent of Africa. Kendall is even receiving death threats. Does anyone, other than me, nd the irony in people that are so upset over killing an animal, that theythemselves send death threats to a 19 year-old child? Think about that one a while. (But thats not really what this column is about). Now, I personally dont nd anything wrong with what Kendall is doing. I grew up hunting. I was also taught to never kill anything that you dont plan on eating. We killed deer, dove, squirrels, rattlesnakes; and ate every single thing we killed. The problem with killing an elephant and taking it home to eat it is that animal is way too big to take home for one family to eat. Thus, according to Kendalls posts and interviews and the people who have dug into the truth, show that she gives the animal to the local villagers to eat. One elephant or rhinoceros will feed approximately 100 villagers. So many television commercials, nowadays, are begging for Americans to send just ve cents a day to starving children in foreign countries; Kendall is feeding more than what I could in just one safari hunt. What I do have a serious problem with is all this outrage over killing a few pretty animals when there is child abuse and rapists and murderers and sex-trafcking around us every day and not one complaint or uproar is heard. Not one petition (which I despise that word) is circulated to help any of these children but let an elephant, lion or leopard get killed and you would think the world was coming to an end. Just last week a man left his 22-monthold toddler in the back seat of his car all day. He even had gone back to his car during his lunch hour and then returned to work. He then went to a store, after work, and then he suddenly discovered/remembered his child in the back seat. It was then determined that he and his wife had just previously searched the internet on how long it takes for a human to die in a car, in the middle of summer. So, now we have a 22month old dead and the sad, sad fact is a video has been posted online accusing police and prosecutors of rushing to the wrong judgment, of the father; and more than 11,000 people have signed an online petition urging the district attorney to drop the murder charges. REALLY??? Last month, there were arrests in Tallahassee for sex-trafcking, after police rescued two girls from motel rooms, ages 16 and 17. These arrests were also deemed a tip of the iceberg for the larger enterprise that they might nd in the Tallahassee area. Here are young girls being held slaves and sold for sex, yet the outrage of society is over the killing of lions and zebras. Besides the one story I heard and the one story I read about this sex-ring, I havent heard another peep out of society about this. No petitions to help these girls in their struggles they are about to face. No marches or videos to help police nd the hundreds of men that are holding these girls captive. Oh no, instead society has chosen to ght the battle for the animals in Africa. With all the images that can be seen on Facebook alone, the fact that dead animals are considered the worst, is disturbing. The powers-to-be decide to remove images of dead animals but leave the images of barely dressed women for all our 12 and 13 year old children to see. The pornographic and soft-porn images are now considered the norm and hunting photos are now considered evil and not morally okay. What should we, as a society in whole, prefer Kendall do in her spare time instead of hunting in Africa? Shes not out drinking and driving; shes not out smoking dope or using drugs; shes not out getting arrested; she is hunting with her father. Given the choices of what a 19-year-old could be doing in all her spare time, I personally think her choices in life seem morally okay. Until then..seeMy neighbor Barbara gave me some mangoes a few days ago and I brought them to work to share with my mango-loving friends. This will be a surprise to some of them, as they were never seen because after sharing just one of them, I realized what I had and greedily scooped them back into the bag to sneak back home with me. Now understand, I love sharing food, but these mangoes did not come from some produce shelf in a grocery store, they were grown fresh in Miami and given to my neighbor who then gave some to me. Do I feel bad about not being as generous? Well, maybe a little, but staring at the two I had left this morning made me happy about rescinding my mango offering with my coworkers. I decided to make a smoothie with the mangoes, and although it was hard to not eat all the juicy esh I scooped out of the skins, I did save some for the blender. Yogurt and mango is a delicious pairing and after blending the two together, I was glad I did. Mango Lassi is a cooling summer drink that hails from India and Pakistan, and is the formal name for what I made in my blender at home. A Lassi contains more than the two basic ingredients I used, but my mango was so juicy and sweet that I opted not to add anything else. But, I love the tang of good plain yogurt and can eat it unaccompanied by any other additions. To make a more traditional Mango Lassi, add to a blender: equal parts of mango and plain yogurt, add milk if you need some liquid, sugar or honey if you want it sweeter and a little ice if you like it frothy. If you really want to get traditional, add a little cardamom powder or rose water to spice it up. Its very rare I would have leftover mangoes sitting around, but I am going to share another mango recipe if you nd yourself in such a predicament. I actually made this recipe with a mango puree from my local Asian grocery, but fresh mango pulp will result in a more avorful bread. However you decide to infuse the dough with mango, you should try it because it really is wonderful. You may not be able to get fresh mango from Miami for these recipes, but when buying mangoes from the store, be sure to select ones that are soft and give when lightly pressed to ensure proper ripeness and the best avor. Mango Butter Rolls 1 package active dry yeast 1 c. warm milk (105 to 115 degrees F) 2 medium mangoes 1 egg 1 tbsp. salt 6 c. bread our, plus more if needed c. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for brushing (optional) In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm milk and stir to dissolve; allow to stand until bu bbly, a bout 10 minutes. Peel mangoes and puree in a blender (or food processor) until smooth; strain to make one cup puree. In a large bowl, combine mango puree, egg, salt and one cup of the our; beat with a mixer until well combined. Add yeast mixture and two more cups of the our; beat on high for about one minute or until combined. Add butter, a few pieces at a time, beating until well incorporated. Add additional our cup at a time to make a soft dough that leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn dough onto a lightly oured work surface and knead about two to three minutes until smooth, adding about a tablespoon of our at a time as needed to prevent sticking. Place dough into a greased bowl, turning once to coat top of dough, cover with plastic wrap or a towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about two hours. Gently deate dough and turn out onto a lightly oured work surface and shape into desired shapes for rolls. Sometimes I do fancy rolls, but the easiest is to roll dough into golf ball sized rolls and place about an inch apart into greased baking pans. Allow to rise again in a warm place until just doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush rolls with melted butter, if desired, and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 9, 2014 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Emerald Greene Publisher Joe Boyles Guest ColumnistSearching For Ambrosia Emerald's Gem Box Rose KleinColumnistMangoes Too Good To ShareEnd of OrderMaybe We Should Rethink Priorities

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The weekend before the 4thof July, the Sons of the American Legion hosted a bike rally and fundraiser at Cherry Lake for the Hopes and Dreams Foundation, located in a facility off the Quitman, Ga. Highway. Similar to the Wounded Warrior Program, the Hopes and Dreams Foundation serves as a rehabilitation center for wounded military veterans and their families, helping them pick up the pieces and reconnect with their loved ones as they recover. The bike rally was sponsored by several other bike clubs, many of them military bike clubs out of Moody AFB, near Valdosta, and included the Rescue Riders, the Outsiders, the Green Knights, combat veterans and military veterans. Some folks came as far away as Tifton, Ga. to participate. The Outsiders are no strangers to fundraising, according to Mike Maitlen, of the Sons of the American Legion of Cherry Lake. At least twice a year, they do fundraising for the cancer society in Valdosta, as well as other benets for individuals with cancer, in addition to raising money for veterans. That was why they got the military bike clubs involved, said Maitlen. We always try to do what we can for the community, he added. The fundraiser included selling dinners for $7 a plate, an auction with donated items, including merchandise from Harley Davidson, a 50/50 rafe and a poker run, with members of the bike clubs riding around to different locations and pulling a card at each of ve stops, beginning and ending at the American Legion Hall. The cost was $10 a hand, or $20 for three hands. Most of the folks participating bought three hands. The Sons of the American Legion also donated $500. All of the money raised goes to the Hopes and Dreams Foundation. The facility, with a local board of directors and an all-volunteer staff, is a 501(c)(3) non-prot, using equine (horse-assisted) therapy to help veterans, wounded warriors, military personnel and their families suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), offering vets and their families not only horseback riding, but also canoeing, kayaking, shing, camping, the camaraderie of others and accommodations for those staying overnight. The Sons of the American Legion have also been busy at the Hopes and Dreams facility, doing much of the renovation work needed and delivering donated item such as beds and other furniture, curtains and TVs for rooms. Everything is done by donation, said Maitlen. That's why we do what we can for them.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Dr. Chuck Oden, who teaches business at St. Leo University, next to the North Florida Community College campus, was once again a guest speaker at the Madison Rotary Club. Several weeks ago, he spoke about leadership and motivation. At the July 2 meeting, he spoke on the subject of not just wisdom and business, but the idea of wisdom in business. Does it have a place in business? How does one affect the other? How do they work together? And how does this affect the bottom line? Who is the wisest person you know? Oden asked several Rotarians. The answers varied: my wife, my grandmother and my father. Still others mentioned teachers, community leaders, Jesus Christ and the Wizard of Oz. Why did you think they were wise? Oden asked each one. Again the answers varied, because the definition of wisdom is so multifaceted. It is one of those concepts that people believe they know about, or at least believe they would recognize it when they see it, but when they try to define it, it quickly proves elusive. A wealth of knowledge is a must, but that can't be all there is to it. Many people can quickly call to mind someone they either know, or know of, who is considered well-educated, book-smart or whatever, but whose actions and behavior are quite foolish. Before we can understand the importance of wisdom in the business world, Oden told the audience, it is important to get a handle on the concept itself, which has only recently begun to be studied. For a long time, the idea of wisdom in business had been lost in the U.S., which was focused almost exclusively on the industrial and bottom line aspects. For a long time, the business model for the U.S. has been hinged on the profit motive at the expense of being unhinged from the purpose motive, but that appears to be shifting a little. Research into the idea and concept of wisdom has defined three dimensions: the cognitive dimension, or what we call the intellect; the affective dimension, or the emotional intelligence and well-being, and the reflective dimension, or how gained wisdom influences the way we see and understand the world around us. The cognitive dimension includes a superior level and extraordinary scope of knowledge, judgement, and a depth of understanding about a subject or a situation while understanding the limits of knowledge. It is knowledge of the positive and negative aspects of human behavior; expert judgement concerning difficult life situations, ability to view problems from a longterm perspective and analyze consequences. It includes understanding of interpersonal relationships and a deep comprehension of human nature. It is a desire to know the truth and embracing the contradictions in life, the good and the bad, the finite and the eternal, and understand from this, that life is not fair, nor should one expect it to be fair. The affective dimension our emotional intelligence and well-being, includes positive and understanding behavior towards others, emotional management, the ability to understand context, the desire for social contact and empathy for others. It is people who are interested in the world around them, who are active and inspired, but who do not rely on temporary measures for happiness, and those who are interested in the personal growth and well-being of their friends and being a part of things around them, not just living a pleasurable life. The affective dimension of wisdom resolves conflicts through cooperation, not dominance submission or avoidance. The affective dimension helps people deal effectively rather than destructively with anger in a business setting. The affective dimension is how managers deal effectively with employees and their emotions in a business setting. It is how people resolve conflicts rather than leaving them to simmer and possibly boil over one day. The reflective dimension is the ability and willingness to look at things from different perspectives, acceptance of responsibility and lack of a tendency to blame others for one's own situations. It includes intuition that comes from many years of experience, the voices in the back of the head that show the right thing to do. It is reflective thinking, withholding judgement and understanding why things happen or why some decisions are chosen over others, through spiritual or philosophical introspection. There is not one short easy definition of wisdom, said Oden. It is a definition that has to be built up from many things. Its place in the business world is one of promoting cohesiveness and job satisfaction, where managers understand people problems as well as production problems and how one affects the other as they deal effectively with employees. It is also where employees are able to see things long term and are less likely to engage in unethical behavior. In business, wisdom allows managers and fellow workers to see the positive traits in each other and help each other see them too, much like the Wizard of Oz, who saw the courage the Lion didn't know he had, or the big heart belonging to the Tin Man. The most effective managers, said Oden, are the ones who realize that the days of sit down shut up and do your job are long gone. The three dimensions of wisdom, the cognitive, the affective and the reflective work, although not yet heavily researched, nevertheless will go a long way together to positively affect the bottom line.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.James Glacer is an artist who lived in a log cabin in the woods of Minnesota. Wanda Violet is a Director of Product Development and Curriculum Writer for a company based out of Atlanta, and was living in Tallahassee. They are now husband and wife and live in Madison County off of Colin Kelly Highway, where Glacer has carved out his own private park and art studio, while Violet telecommutes to her job in Tallahassee. Glacer and Violet have a modern love story; they met on an online dating site, married in Georgia in 2008 at a wedding and dinner attended by their adult children and by 2009, the couple had moved to Madison and now express how happy they are to be part of the Madison community. After living in Tallahassee, Glacer began to miss his woods and the couple began searching for a new residence. They spoke to several realtors, but were unable to nd their holy grail, until when out driving one day, they stumbled upon a Fifth Saturday Celebration in Madison. Violet says Glacer was smitten with the celebration, Mrs. Leslies 10-layer cakes and the town. Glacer and Violet found realtors, Lynette Sirmon and Ben Jones, who they described as sweet and very helpful, and the rst agents who seemed intent on helping the couple nd their dream home. Their house search ended with the Cason home on Dusty Miller Avenue and after moving in, the extremely creative couple began making the house their own. While Violet concentrated on work, the inside of the home and planting owers, Glacer began carving out the yard and creating wood structures all over the propertys landscape. He made paths through the acreage, tearing at vines and shrubs until the property more resembles a park as opposed to the wooded lot that previously accompanied the home. With the help of new friends such as TC Hudson, Dwayne Mitchell and Randy Funk, he built a twostory tree house, a potting shed for his gardening habit and a large shop where he can wile away the hours creating his art. One of the discoveries Glacer made while developing his backyard park, along with a g tree and Tung Oil tree, was a sculpture made from rebar that was bent and twisted to resemble what we agreed looked like an insect, a grasshopper or praying mantis maybe. Both Glacer and Violet would like to meet the artist and be able to place a plaque beside the fun piece bearing the creators name, but need help from the community in order to identify this person. When Glacer is not working in the yard, he is working in his shop, creating beautiful works of art with wood. It is said that in times of great catastrophe or impending doom, ones eyes tend to open up and suddenly see and appreciate the small details of life around them; this is exactly how James Glacers passion for creating art from wood began. While sitting in a bunker during a rocket attack in Dung Ha, South Vietnam, the young marine, while waiting for the rockets to nd their target, noticed someone had taken the time to carefully construct the wooden joint and crafted two, 2-inch square pegs and pounded them into round holes, serving to hold the bunker together securely. This appreciation of craftsmanship started Glacer thinking about building with wood and after returning to the states, he attended a ne arts program at a university where he was allowed to use their woodworking shop at will. From there, he moved to Northern Minnesota and continued to work with wood, rening and honing his skills. Since 1972, James Glacer has shown his work through exhibits in Minnesota, Arizona, Chicago, Ontario, Washington D.C., California and recently Tallahassee. After moving to Madison, he now limits his shows to Invitational Art Shows, allowing him to focus less time on showing and more time on creating. He built his studio according to his needs, with good lighting and ventilation and large windows, which allows him a great view of the environment around him; his park, the woods and the occasional passing wildlife. Glacer can now take a break and walk to his garden where he can weed and water or walk to the house and visit with Violet. Glacer also makes beautiful cutting boards for the kitchen and those can be seen in town at The Country Store on Range Street, at Tupelos in Monticello or LeMoyne Art Center in Tallahassee. To learn more about James Glacer, or to see his art, you can go to his website at www.jamesglaserstudios.com or call (850) 973-8813 to make an appointment.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.This coming school year, 2014-2015, parents will have a new private non-traditional school to check out for their Kindergarten-12thgrade students. The Q.E. Multicultural Art and Training Academy (QEMAATA) Virtual School will open its doors Aug. 18, at 1282 SW Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The school is located next door to the Madison County Recreation Center, in the same building where the New Millennium Charter School and staff was previously located. The building is under renovations to bring the structure up to date and to accommodate the schools virtual curriculum. The virtual schools curriculum will be semester-based virtual teacher facilitated courses, meaning that students will have a teacher on site, but all lessons will be done online. This synchronous learning system will allow students to work more at their own pace but will also give the students the benefit of having a teacher on hand to answer questions and enhance student learning. The schools goal is to provide an education that is marked with individual attention to a talented and diverse community of students. This diversity includes students with learning disabilities, speech impairment or health related issues, with the school accepting McKay and Step Up For Students scholarships. A renovated building and virtual curriculum are not the only new designs the school plans to bring to Madison. QEMAATA will serve K-12 students Monday through Saturday, offering a six-day school week instead of the average five and will be offering after school programs all six days as well. The schools Director says this is in order to invest more time with the children in the community and to reach the schools goal of closing the gap between every childs potential and his or her day-to-day performance. With parents, teachers and administrators all working together, we can provide each student with the opportunity to maximize his or her potential. Along with educational goals, QEMAATA wants to empower and challenge every student to responsibly meet the challenges of everyday life by promoting not only academic achievements, but personal development and social involvement. Part of the schools curriculum will include real-life skill opportunities, such as computer courses and other hands-on skills which will enable students to succeed in their lives after graduation. The Q.E. Multicultural Art and Training Academy Virtual School is currently accepting applications for students as well as teachers who are certified and hold, at minimum, a Bachelors Degree in education.

Pictured left to right are: Faith Simmons, Trenton High School instructor Ryan Pass, Daniel Crane, Logan Fitz gerald, Alexandria Simmons, Tela Powers, Jacob Moore, Tyler Burnett and Madison County High School instructor Paige Thomas. Story Submitted by Suwannee River Water Management DistrictFor the second year in a row the Suwannee River Water Management District hosted the Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) students and teachers from Trenton and Madison High Schools for eight days of rst hand experiences of the typical work of engineers, scientists and administrators. The Florida Learns STEM Scholars, the North East Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC) STEM Talent Development 2014 Summer Field Site and Workplace Experience Opportunity partnered with the District and instructors Paige Thomas (Madison County High School) and Ryan Pass (Trenton High School) to bring this program to seven deserving students. The students were from Trenton High School were Logan Fitzgerald, Tela Powers, Alex Simons and Daniel Crane; from Madison County High School were Tyler Burnett, Jacob Moore, Easton Sapp and Leslie Sapp. Students were asked what they hope to gain from this experience and they expressed a desire to learn about the various occupation types at the District as well as job functions. The students went on to say they had heard of the District, but they were not clear on the relationship between the District, public lands and springs. Dave Dickens, Administrative and Operations Bureau Chief and Coordinator at the District for the STEM experience commented, Providing students with this intimate hands-on opportunity is not only informative towards their prospective career paths, it also increases their levels of environmental awareness. Dickens coordinated with other staff to expose the youth to a range of professions. Over eight days, they were taught the history of the Water Management Districts and met with the Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle and members of leadership. With Water Resources Division Engineers, they worked on permits and put their new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Mapping and Geonavigational skills to use by spending multiple days getting real hands-on experience in the eld with district personnel. These shadowing activities included: inspecting storm water structures and wetland restorations, observing timber harvesting and forestry management, using scientic instrumentation to measure water quality parameters, monitoring the ow of water in streams and rivers, inspecting agriculture best management practices on local farms, monitoring groundwater wells and participation in many other responsibilities of the District. Students expressed appreciation for staff tailoring the experience to make it relevant and applicable. Visiting Belli Farms greenhouse and riding a Global os sys GPS satellite controlled tractor are some of the highlights they cited. The tour took them to a variety of places such as Poe Springs, Adams Tract River Camp and Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center just to name a few. The Edible Aquifer Demonstration was a hit with all involved. Instructor Ryan Pass expressed his gratitude for the event and eagerly hopes to continue with the next STEM and District work experience. The NEFEC explained the investment in STEM and students, Recognizing the need for small and rural districts to enhance science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula for gifted and talented secondary students, the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC), in partnership with the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC), and NEFEC will implement the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars (FLSS) program.

Throughout biblical history, godly men and women have had to stand firm in faith during times of spiritual decline. The Apostle Paul continually urged believers to stand in faith and be strong. (1 Cor 16:13; Eph 6:10) To illustrate this, he encouraged the Churches of Galatia to stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free. (Gal 5:1) Likewise, he challenged the Ephesians to Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. (Eph 6:14) To the Thessalonians, he instructed stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. (2Th 2:15) In addition, his expectations for Corinthian believers were for them to be stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. (1 Cor 15:58) He did so because of the multiple dangers which challenged and endangered the spiritual well-being of the churches. Paul knew the enemy was aggressive, active and menacing. For instance, he knew that some people had already swerved from the faith, (1Ti 1:6-7) and made shipwreck. (1Ti 1:19-20) Secondly, certain immature believers faced the risk of departing from the faith by giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, resulting in them speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron. (1Ti 4:1-3) Sadly, he noted that some had already turned aside after Satan. (1Ti 5:15) Third, he warned those who would love money that the love of money was the root of all evil. This love was a snare and could drown men in destruction and perdition. (1Tim 6:9-10) Because of these hazards, Paul counseled Timothy, his spiritual son in the faith, to take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. (1Ti 4:16) Further, he expected him to stand and engage these spiritual enemies as a good soldiers in warfare (1Ti 1:18; 2Ti 2:3) He directed Timothy to, Fight the good fight of faith. (1Ti 6:12) In addition, he warned that this spiritual struggle would intensify as the last days drew near to closing because men would be given to hedonism and narcissism. (2Tim 3:4-5) These two temptations brought the possibilities of one turning their ears from the truth so that they would not endure sound doctrine. (2Timothy 4:3-4) The sad consequences of this being they would profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Tit 1:16) Peter also warned about false prophets (2Pe 2:1-2), scoffers and mockers (2Pet 3:3-4) who walk according to their own ungodly lusts would also arise. (Peter 3:3-4) Jude said such would be sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. (v19) Their generation was not unlike our own. We, too, are facing the same enemies of the Cross. (Php 3:18) Therefore, the need to Stay the Course is great. This phrase, when used in the context of war, means to pursue the mission regardless of adversaries (1Co 16:9), afflictions (2Ti 4:5), hindrances (1Th 2:18) or hardness. (2Ti 2:3) To Stay the Course allegedly originated as a nautical metaphor on maintaining a constant, unaltering course. In this context 'stay' refers to the ropes or guys and sheets which holds the 'course' (mainsail) in a fixed position appropriate to the heading. Although there are citations from the late 19thcentury which show the phrase describing horses having the stamina to remain on the course of a racetrack. Perhaps this was what Winston Churchill wondered when he remarked, America, it is a great and strong country, like a workhorse pulling the rest of the world out of despond and despair. But will it stay the course? In our time of spiritual decline, with so many spiritual dangers facing us today, I also wonder if the contemporary church has the stamina and fortitude to Stay the Course until Jesus comes. Each believer must make that decision for him or herself. However, I will join Joshua and cry, but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Jos 24:15) 2B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, July 9, 2014 Path of Faith By Rev. Ralph Dillard, Church of God EvangelistThe The Pulpit Pulpit Stay The Course

Students will train to become Agency D3 special agents during Vacation Bible School at the First Baptist Church of Madison. VBS is set for Sunday, July 13, through Friday, July 18. The theme for the VBS is Agency D3: Discover. Decide. Defend. Students, ages three to adult, will collect and log evidence about Jesus. Using their best high-tech operative skills, they will examine eyewitness reports, physical proof and Biblical accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. During the VBS, they will Discover the truth of the gospel; Decide to believe it; and Defend the decision. The students will be members of D3, which is an investigative agency organized to discover if Jesus is really who He claims to be and to examine if the Bible is true. This VBS is unusual because it has an apologetics theme, because people not only need to know the Bible is true and that Jesus is God's one and only Son, but they need to know how to defend what they believe when someone asks them why they believe it. The fun will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner served each evening and will last until 8:30 p.m. Kathy McCollum is the VBS Director for the First Baptist Church of Madison. Local Churches, Individuals Use Social Media To Share The Good News By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. For the past few years, social media has invaded our lives from every aspect, including our faith. Churches and ministries have online presences which help them deliver their messages and lessons with everything from YouTube videos to podcasts to audio recorded sermons to Instagram photographs. A number of churches in Madison County have Facebook pages or Facebook groups. These pages and groups carry prayer requests from members and others who have urgent needs and they also carry church news. Local ministers, including Toney Hill, pastor of Greenville Baptist; Jason Justus, pastor of Madison Church of God; and Jackie Watts, pastor of Fellowship Baptist share their Sunday sermons online. Others also do it. Some share through live streaming, some share through digital audio and some through video. Some share through both audio and video. If you attend a different church, or you missed your own church Sunday, you can go download the files and listen during the week, via your iPod or MP3 player. Most cars these days are equipped with auxiliary jacks which allow you to plug in your audio listening device and listen in the car. Some ministers, like Benjie Dyal, pastor of New Home Baptist Church, (www.benjiedyal.com) and lay people, like this writer (jacobbembry.com) and Vanessa Unglaub (vunglaub.wordpress.com), have their own websites and blogs to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with you. If you or your church uses social media to proclaim the message that Jesus saves, please send the information to jacob@jacobbembry.com and we will put the information in The Path of Faith for you.

Vacation Bible School wound down as the agents finished their assignments at Lee First Baptist Church on Friday evening, June 27, as those who attended enjoyed a special family night. With the theme for the VBS as Agency D3: Discover. Decide. Defend, students, ages three to adult, collected and logged evidence about Jesus. Using their best high-tech operative skills, they examined eyewitness reports, physical proof and Biblical accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. During VBS, they Discovered the truth of the gospel; Decided to believe it; and Defended the decision. The students became members of D3, an investigative agency organized to discover if Jesus is really who He claims to be and to examine if the Bible is true. On Thursday evening, members of the Madison County Sheriff's Office came to fingerprint the students for their identifications. Those who attended all seemed to have a great time.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher: she was of a great age and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years and departed not from the temple, but had served God with fastings and with prayers night and day. And she coming in the instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. (Luke 2:36-38, KJV) The scene is the temple of Jerusalem, where Mary and Joseph have just brought the infant Jesus to be circumcised according to Jewish law. There, they present him to the Lord and offer the traditional sacrifice of two turtledoves or two young pigeons; and there, they meet two very extraordinary people. One is Simeon, an elderly man described in Luke 2:25 as just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. In some orthodox circles today, he is known as Simeon the GodReceiver. The other is Anna (whose name means favor, or grace), the daughter of Phanuel (meaning the face or appearance of God), of the tribe of Asher, one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. At the time of the narrative in Lukes Gospel, Anna is a devout, elderly widow. The elderly Anna and Simeon had one other thing in common; they both had the privilege of seeing the infant Messiah before their deaths. Long ago, God had promised Simeon that he would see the Christ child before he died, and on this day, the Holy Spirit has summoned him to the temple for this very reason. Upon seeing and holding the infant, he quietly rejoices that he can now depart his earthly life in peace; God has kept His holy promise. Anna, the elderly widow, has been living in the temple since the death of her husband many decades earlier. According to Jewish custom, Anna was probably wed at the age of 14; for a young Jewish maiden like Anna, her wedding day would have been the single most important day of her life, marking the threshold between girlhood and the rest of her adult life as a wife and mother. We are never told the name of Annas husband or why he passed away, only that he died after seven years, leaving Anna a widow in her early 20s. For a young Jewish woman, marriage and childbearing were the sum total of her existence, her raison detre, and life for a widow in ancient Judea was a precarious enterprise at best. Women could not own property except under unusual circumstances, and thus typically had to rely on the kindness of strangers or the charity of other family members for financial survival. There were few legal protections for widows and orphans a womans testimony was not even allowed in a court of law and unscrupulous people could exploit them without much fear of legal reprisal. Perhaps this is why there are so many exhortations in the Scriptures for the church to remember especially the widows and orphans, and see that they were properly cared for and treated well. Of course, a widow might marry again; there was the long-standing custom of a deceased husbands brother taking the widow in marriage, but there is no mention of a brother for Annas late husband. Perhaps she could have married another man, being still fairly young, but she didnt. She may have been too grief-stricken or, after seven years of marriage and no children, she may have been presumed barren, one of those women whose womb the Lord had closed, and therefore unmarriageable. However, the Scriptures do not come right out and say directly that she was considered barren, so it may have been her decision to remain a widow for the rest of her life. We cannot know for certain. What is certain, though, is that she did not give in to despair and hopelessness. For Anna to be so bereft of everything that had made up her young adult life of seven years, the future must have looked bleak indeed, and the loneliness of the years stretching out in front of her would be hard for anyone else to imagine. She is left with almost nothing...except her faith. Rather than becoming bitter and angry, she draws on her faith in God for strength and comes to live at the temple as a prophetess, a holy woman, spending the rest of her life ministering to others. Over the years, people became quite accustomed to seeing her serving at the temple. Her faithfulness, wisdom, devotion and gift of prophecy bring her respect and credibility in the eyes of the community, and also bring her closer to God. At the time of Lukes narrative, she is either 84 years old, or has been a widow for 84 years; the passage is a little ambiguous, with some scholars holding out for 84 as her given age, and others maintaining that she had been a widow for 84 years. That would make her about 105 at the time, which is entirely possible. Tradition has it that Simeon lived until the ripe old age of 360. As soon as Anna sees the infant Jesus, she knows immediately that this is the long-awaited Messiah. She rejoices in her heart and proclaims the news to everyone who will listen. Because of her many years of seeking the Lords presence and walking with God, she is in the right place at the right time, to be the first to proclaim the joyous news of the Messiahs arrival; her words carry weight with those who hear them because of the exemplary life she has led. Today, the Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church commemorate Anna as a saint Anna the Prophetess. The Eastern Orthodox Church considers Anna and Simeon as the last of the Old Testament Prophets, celebrating their feast day on Feb. 3. In works of art, Anna and Simeon are often included in the iconography of the Presentation of Christ, along with Mary, Joseph and the Holy Infant; according to orthodox tradition, it was in the persons of Anna and Simeon that the Christ child first met the people He would eventually lead in His earthly mission. What we take with us from Annas story is her willingness to seek the Lord in all things and to draw upon Him for strength in times of trouble, rather than give in to despair and allow grief to claim the rest of her life. When Anna was mourning her late husband and everything seemed to have been taken from her, she put her faith and trust in God, and allowed Him to lead her to her new life in the temple. Because she was known as a Prophetess by the time her story is told in Luke, we know that she was respected and admired, and that her ministry in the temple must have helped many people over the years. We also know that God must have been pleased with His servant, not only because He blessed her ministry, but also because, before the end of her days, He allowed her to see, with her own eyes, the Son of God, the Messiah who had come to deliver Israel.

I once approached my life and work as if I was building a house. Drive a nail here. Lay a block there. Smear a bit of paint in the corner. Cut out a window now and again. Figuratively, this is how I treated my life, and it is a solid, powerful image. It is also an image with plenty of biblical roots. None other than Jesus himself said in the Sermon on the Mount, Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Of course those who ignore his teaching, Jesus said, are like those who build their lives on a sandy foundation with collapse all but imminent. Paul stuck with the theme as well, and he spoke of the possibility that our lives can be soundly constructed from things that will last like bricks and mortar gold, silver, and precious jewels he called them. Or, Paul says, we can foolishly build with the combustible and momentary materials of wood, hay or straw. It all reminds me of the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf: Some things are built to last. Other things blow away about as quickly as they were created, in spite of our brave squeals and the hair of our chinny, chin, chins. I havent given up on this building metaphor completely, but recently I did adopt a new narrative. Its not about construction, but deconstruction. Last year I visited a housing project in San Salvador that is home to more than a thousand people. With homes, churches, markets and a school, it is a safe and healthy neighborhood, thus far insulated from so much of the gang violence, extortion and troubles of the city. It is no utopia, but it is a shining light within a very dangerous section of the city. The land upon which this neighborhood sits was given to a group of US American volunteers by the city of San Salvador because the city had basically given up on it. It was nothing but a forsaken junkyard, filled with crushed cars, old buses, dilapidated construction equipment, and families: People were living in the junkyard because they Path of Faith 10B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, July 9, 2014 Open 24/7 Disappearing Dump Trucks story cont. on page 11B

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!" His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means? The son replied, "I do know!" "Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean? "That's easy, Daddy..." the young boy replied excitedly," It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth..' Madison County Carrier Wednesday, July 9, 2014 11B Path of Faith Dump Truck continued from page 10B had no place else to go. Ultimately, these people were moved out, new homes were built and the people moved back in. My favorite part of this venture, and my new narrative, involved a dump truck that was just too big and heavy to move. It sat in the middle of the jobsite untouched, until six eight-year-old boys attacked it. Every day these little boys, none past third grade, would come to the site with their hacksaw blades, pieces of t-shirts wrapped around the edges for handles, and they would saw away. Then they would take whatever they cut off and sell it for a few pennies at a time on the street, helping to meagerly support their families. This went on day after day, week after week, and month after month until one day, almost like magic, this huge dump truck weighing tens of thousands of pounds was just gone. Six elementary school-aged children had consumed it, like vultures consuming a carcass. One of the onsite missionaries told me that when he felt like quitting, that when he thought what he tried to do didnt matter, or when overwhelming odds made it all hopeless, he would revisit the memory of those little boys confronting their dump truck day after day. They knew, as only children can know, that if they stayed at it long enough, nothing would be impossible. The truck would one day disappear. Those little boys can help reorient our lives. We may not build a whole lot with the few years we have been given, and parts of what we build will get blown away. But with the blessed ignorance of children, we can keep sawing keep parenting, keep teaching, keep fostering, keep nursing, keep showing up at whatever it is we do until finally, almost like magic, the dump trucks disappear. Holy Humor A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump. "Reverend," said the young man, "I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip." The minister chuckled, "I know what you mean. It's the same in my business." Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about. The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt." Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about. He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming." The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play. "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances." During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up." At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner." And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!

National Security Acentury ago at this time, the old order of Europe was wracked in crisis drifting toward war. Just two weeks before, the crown prince of the Hapsburg Empire, Franz Ferdinand and his wife were gunned down by a young nondescript nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in the Balkan city of Sarajevo. For ve weeks during mid-summer, the European capitals teetered over war, nally falling into the abyss as the calendar turned to August. At rst, the argument was between Austria and Serbia, but a series of treaties enfolded other nations in the crisis. The Triple Alliance was a pact that included Austria, Germany, and Italy. The counterweight was the Triple Entente which united Russia with England and France. As one domino fell, others tumbled. Austria-Hungary was determined to teach the Serbs a lesson and quash the budding nationalist movement. They made a series of demands that were impossible for the Serbian government to accept. Germany blindly pledged their support to the Austrians. The Romanovs of Russia backed their ally the Serbs. As one nation mobilized, others would follow suit so they wouldn't be caught unprepared. England and France attempted to act as a mediator but were unsuccessful. Germany's primary war plan, written by the now dead Erich von Schlieffen, saw France as the principle enemy and most of its troops moving to the west. In late July as the general mobilization force moved westward by train, France declared its neutrality. When Kaiser Wilhelm attempted to stop the war plan now in motion, his defense minister Von Moltke informed him that it was not possible to halt the plan. In other words, they could implement the plan but not stop it once underway. A series of miscalculations, entangling alliances and poor communication swept all of Europe into what we now call World War I. Many historians feel that it was the most signicant event of the second millennia because of its effect on borders, nations and the predicate for a second world war only a generation later. Four years of brutal warfare led directly to the breakup of four old order empires and their ruling families: the Hapsburgs (Austria-Hungary); the Hohenzollerns (Germany); the Romanovs (Russia); and the Ottoman-Turks. Two marvelous books by the late historian Barbara Tuchman capture this sequence. "The Proud Tower" describes the rotting old feudal order of the late 19thCentury. The sequel is the Pulitzer Prize winning "Guns of August" which describes the rst month of the war in 1914. A half century ago, President Kennedy insisted that all of his national security team read Tuchman's second book to absorb the lessons. Unfortunately, this initiative did not prevent or limit our involvement in Vietnam. An irony of the war was that the leaders were largely cousins. In the 19thCentury, the "grandmother of Europe," England's Victoria, had nine children, all of which ruled or were married to the ruler of nine European nations. Some argue that in one sense, the war was a family squabble. After three years of warfare, the belligerents had been bled white. The French army actually mutinied. The military leaders were unable to craft victory in any sense. The entrance of America in 1917 and the arrival of two million "doughboys" a year later were sufcient to break the stalemate. Finally, at the 11thhour of the 11thday of the 11thmonth in 1918, an Armistice was declared. Six months later at Versailles on the outskirts of Paris, a peace conference ensued that was badly botched. Borders were drawn; nations were created; different ethnic groups were joined; surviving empires were expanded; spoils were handed out; and Germany was severely punished. The "war to end all wars" as many thought did no such thing. The aftermath of the war is greatly telling, especially in the Middle East. A classic example is Iraq, now descending into chaos once again. Three ethnic tribes (Sunnis, Shia and Kurds) were joined under French protectorate. A ruthless Bathist (Sunni) leader Sadaam Hussein was able to tamp down ethnic differences with an iron hand. Once he was deposed by America in the second Gulf War, the tribal differences resurfaced. What we are seeing today is the natural order that disconnected European leaders were unable to perceive or resolve at Versailles. What goes around comes around, even a century later.For the past week there have been headlines and turmoil over the 19-year-old teenage girl who, along with her apparently wealthy parents, takes African Safari hunting trips. She then, in turn, has begun posting her kills onto her personal Facebook Page. Her name is Kendall Jones. She is a Texas Tech University cheerleader and an avid hunter. She began taking trips to Africa, with her parents, at the age of nine. So where's the problem? It seems that animal lovers, all over the world, are accusing her of animal abuse, killing endangered species and have demanded that her pictures be removed from Facebook (too awful to look at). A petition to force Kendall to remove her page, because it "promoted animal cruelty" had gained over 40,000 signatures in just a week. Facebook's CEO did in fact fold to the pressure and removed Kendall's photos from her Facebook page. Now, there is even a petition circulating to have Kendall banned from the entire continent of Africa. Kendall is even receiving death threats. Does anyone, other than me, nd the irony in people that are so upset over killing an animal, that theythemselves send death threats to a 19 year-old child? Think about that one a while. (But that's not really what this column is about). Now, I personally don't nd anything wrong with what Kendall is doing. I grew up hunting. I was also taught to never kill anything that you don't plan on eating. We killed deer, dove, squirrels, rattlesnakes; and ate every single thing we killed. The problem with killing an elephant and taking it "home" to eat it is that animal is way too big to take home for one family to eat. Thus, according to Kendall's posts and interviews and the people who have "dug into" the truth, show that she gives the animal to the local villagers to eat. One elephant or rhinoceros will feed approximately 100 villagers. So many television commercials, nowadays, are begging for Americans to send just ve cents a day to starving children in foreign countries; Kendall is feeding more than what I could in just one safari hunt. What I do have a serious problem with is all this outrage over killing a few pretty animals when there is child abuse and rapists and murderers and sex-trafcking around us every day and not one complaint or uproar is heard. Not one petition (which I despise that word) is circulated to help any of these children but let an elephant, lion or leopard get killed and you would think the world was coming to an end. Just last week a man left his 22-monthold toddler in the back seat of his car all day. He even had gone back to his car during his lunch hour and then returned to work. He then went to a store, after work, and then he suddenly discovered/remembered his child in the back seat. It was then determined that he and his wife had just previously searched the internet on how long it takes for a human to die in a car, in the middle of summer. So, now we have a 22month old dead and the sad, sad fact is a video has been posted online accusing police and prosecutors of rushing to the wrong judgment, of the father; and more than 11,000 people have signed an online petition urging the district attorney to drop the murder charges. REALLY??? Last month, there were arrests in Tallahassee for sex-trafcking, after police rescued two girls from motel rooms, ages 16 and 17. These arrests were also deemed a "tip of the iceberg" for the larger enterprise that they might nd in the Tallahassee area. Here are young girls being held slaves and sold for sex, yet the outrage of society is over the killing of lions and zebras. Besides the one story I heard and the one story I read about this sex-ring, I haven't heard another peep out of society about this. No petitions to help these girls in their struggles they are about to face. No marches or videos to help police nd the hundreds of men that are holding these girls captive. Oh no, instead society has chosen to ght the battle for the animals in Africa. With all the images that can be seen on Facebook alone, the fact that dead animals are considered the worst, is disturbing. The "powers-to-be" decide to remove images of dead animals but leave the images of barely dressed women for all our 12 and 13 year old children to see. The pornographic and soft-porn images are now considered the norm and hunting photos are now considered evil and not morally okay. What should we, as a society in whole, prefer Kendall do in her spare time instead of hunting in Africa? She's not out drinking and driving; she's not out smoking dope or using drugs; she's not out getting arrested; she is hunting with her father. Given the choices of what a 19-year-old could be doing in all her spare time, I personally think her choices in life seem morally okay. Until then..seeMy neighbor Barbara gave me some mangoes a few days ago and I brought them to work to share with my mango-loving friends. This will be a surprise to some of them, as they were never seen because after sharing just one of them, I realized what I had and greedily scooped them back into the bag to sneak back home with me. Now understand, I love sharing food, but these mangoes did not come from some produce shelf in a grocery store, they were grown fresh in Miami and given to my neighbor who then gave some to me. Do I feel bad about not being as generous? Well, maybe a little, but staring at the two I had left this morning made me happy about rescinding my mango offering with my coworkers. I decided to make a smoothie with the mangoes, and although it was hard to not eat all the juicy esh I scooped out of the skins, I did save some for the blender. Yogurt and mango is a delicious pairing and after blending the two together, I was glad I did. Mango Lassi is a cooling summer drink that hails from India and Pakistan, and is the formal name for what I made in my blender at home. A Lassi contains more than the two basic ingredients I used, but my mango was so juicy and sweet that I opted not to add anything else. But, I love the tang of good plain yogurt and can eat it unaccompanied by any other additions. To make a more traditional Mango Lassi, add to a blender: equal parts of mango and plain yogurt, add milk if you need some liquid, sugar or honey if you want it sweeter and a little ice if you like it frothy. If you really want to get traditional, add a little cardamom powder or rose water to spice it up. It's very rare I would have "leftover" mangoes sitting around, but I am going to share another mango recipe if you nd yourself in such a predicament. I actually made this recipe with a mango puree from my local Asian grocery, but fresh mango pulp will result in a more avorful bread. However you decide to infuse the dough with mango, you should try it because it really is wonderful. You may not be able to get fresh mango from Miami for these recipes, but when buying mangoes from the store, be sure to select ones that are soft and "give" when lightly pressed to ensure proper ripeness and the best avor. Mango Butter Rolls 1 package active dry yeast 1 c. warm milk (105 to 115 degrees F) 2 medium mangoes 1 egg 1 tbsp. salt 6 c. bread our, plus more if needed c. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for brushing (optional) In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm milk and stir to dissolve; allow to stand until bu bbly, a bout 10 minutes. Peel mangoes and puree in a blender (or food processor) until smooth; strain to make one cup puree. In a large bowl, combine mango puree, egg, salt and one cup of the our; beat with a mixer until well combined. Add yeast mixture and two more cups of the our; beat on high for about one minute or until combined. Add butter, a few pieces at a time, beating until well incorporated. Add additional our cup at a time to make a soft dough that leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn dough onto a lightly oured work surface and knead about two to three minutes until smooth, adding about a tablespoon of our at a time as needed to prevent sticking. Place dough into a greased bowl, turning once to coat top of dough, cover with plastic wrap or a towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about two hours. Gently deate dough and turn out onto a lightly oured work surface and shape into desired shapes for rolls. Sometimes I do fancy rolls, but the easiest is to roll dough into golf ball sized rolls and place about an inch apart into greased baking pans. Allow to rise again in a warm place until just doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush rolls with melted butter, if desired, and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 9, 2014 2A € Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Emerald Greene Publisher Joe Boyles Guest ColumnistSearching For Ambrosia Emerald's Gem Box Rose KleinColumnistMangoes Too Good To ShareEnd of OrderMaybe We Should Rethink Priorities

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The weekend before the 4thof July, the Sons of the American Legion hosted a bike rally and fundraiser at Cherry Lake for the Hopes and Dreams Foundation, located in a facility off the Quitman, Ga. Highway. Similar to the Wounded Warrior Program, the Hopes and Dreams Foundation serves as a rehabilitation center for wounded military veterans and their families, helping them pick up the pieces and reconnect with their loved ones as they recover. The bike rally was sponsored by several other bike clubs, many of them military bike clubs out of Moody AFB, near Valdosta, and included the Rescue Riders, the Outsiders, the Green Knights, combat veterans and military veterans. Some folks came as far away as Tifton, Ga. to participate. The Outsiders are no strangers to fundraising, according to Mike Maitlen, of the Sons of the American Legion of Cherry Lake. At least twice a year, they do fundraising for the cancer society in Valdosta, as well as other benets for individuals with cancer, in addition to raising money for veterans. That was why they got the military bike clubs involved, said Maitlen. “We always try to do what we can for the community,” he added. The fundraiser included selling dinners for $7 a plate, an auction with donated items, including merchandise from Harley Davidson, a 50/50 rafe and a “poker run,” with members of the bike clubs riding around to different locations and pulling a card at each of ve stops, beginning and ending at the American Legion Hall. The cost was $10 a hand, or $20 for three hands. Most of the folks participating bought three hands. The Sons of the American Legion also donated $500. All of the money raised goes to the Hopes and Dreams Foundation. The facility, with a local board of directors and an all-volunteer staff, is a 501(c)(3) non-prot, using equine (horse-assisted) therapy to help veterans, wounded warriors, military personnel and their families suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), offering vets and their families not only horseback riding, but also canoeing, kayaking, shing, camping, the camaraderie of others and accommodations for those staying overnight. The Sons of the American Legion have also been busy at the Hopes and Dreams facility, doing much of the renovation work needed and delivering donated item such as beds and other furniture, curtains and TVs for rooms. “Everything is done by donation,” said Maitlen. “That's why we do what we can for them.” AROUNDMADISONCOUNTYMadison County Carrier € 5Awww.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 9, 2014 S e r v i n g O u r N e i g h b o r s F o r O v e r 5 0 Y e a r s Competitive Rates Online Banking I N T E R E S T C H E C K I N GS A V I N G S M O N E Y M A R K E TB U S I N E S S C H E C K I N G C E R T I F I C A T E O F D E P O S I TI R A 424 West Base Street P.O.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Dr. Chuck Oden, who teaches business at St. Leo University, next to the North Florida Community College campus, was once again a guest speaker at the Madison Rotary Club. Several weeks ago, he spoke about leadership and motivation. At the July 2 meeting, he spoke on the subject of not just wisdom and business, but the idea of wisdom in business. Does it have a place in business? How does one affect the other? How do they work together? And how does this affect the bottom line? “Who is the wisest person you know?” Oden asked several Rotarians. The answers varied: my wife my grandmother and my father Still others mentioned teachers, community leaders, Jesus Christ and the Wizard of Oz. “Why did you think they were wise?” Oden asked each one. Again the answers varied, because the definition of wisdom is so multifaceted. It is one of those concepts that people believe they know about, or at least believe they would recognize it when they see it, but when they try to define it, it quickly proves elusive. A wealth of knowledge is a must, but that can't be all there is to it. Many people can quickly call to mind someone they either know, or know of, who is considered well-educated, “book-smart” or whatever, but whose actions and behavior are quite foolish. Before we can understand the importance of wisdom in the business world, Oden told the audience, it is important to get a handle on the concept itself, which has only recently begun to be studied. For a long time, the idea of wisdom in business had been lost in the U.S., which was focused almost exclusively on the industrial and bottom line aspects. For a long time, the business model for the U.S. has been hinged on the profit motive at the expense of being unhinged from the purpose motive, but that appears to be shifting a little. Research into the idea and concept of wisdom has defined three dimensions: the cognitive dimension, or what we call the intellect; the affective dimension, or the emotional intelligence and well-being, and the reflective dimension, or how gained wisdom influences the way we see and understand the world around us. The cognitive dimension includes a superior level and extraordinary scope of knowledge, judgement, and a depth of understanding about a subject or a situation while understanding the limits of knowledge. It is knowledge of the positive and negative aspects of human behavior; expert judgement concerning difficult life situations, ability to view problems from a longterm perspective and analyze consequences. It includes understanding of interpersonal relationships and a deep comprehension of human nature. It is a desire to know the truth and embracing the contradictions in life, the good and the bad, the finite and the eternal, and understand from this, that life is not fair, nor should one expect it to be fair. The affective dimension our emotional intelligence and well-being, includes positive and understanding behavior towards others, emotional management, the ability to understand context, the desire for social contact and empathy for others. It is people who are interested in the world around them, who are active and inspired, but who do not rely on temporary measures for happiness, and those who are interested in the personal growth and well-being of their friends and being a part of things around them, not just living a pleasurable life. The affective dimension of wisdom resolves conflicts through cooperation, not dominance submission or avoidance. The affective dimension helps people deal effectively rather than destructively with anger in a business setting. The affective dimension is how managers deal effectively with employees and their emotions in a business setting. It is how people resolve conflicts rather than leaving them to simmer and possibly boil over one day. The reflective dimension is the ability and willingness to look at things from different perspectives, acceptance of responsibility and lack of a tendency to blame others for one's own situations. It includes intuition that comes from many years of experience, the voices in the back of the head that show the right thing to do. It is reflective thinking, withholding judgement and understanding why things happen or why some decisions are chosen over others, through spiritual or philosophical introspection. There is not one short easy definition of wisdom, said Oden. It is a definition that has to be built up from many things. Its place in the business world is one of promoting cohesiveness and job satisfaction, where managers understand people problems as well as production problems and how one affects the other as they deal effectively with employees. It is also where employees are able to see things long term and are less likely to engage in unethical behavior. In business, wisdom allows managers and fellow workers to see the positive traits in each other and help each other see them too, much like the Wizard of Oz, who saw the courage the Lion didn't know he had, or the big heart belonging to the Tin Man. The most effective managers, said Oden, are the ones who realize that “the days of sit down shut up and do your job are long gone.” The three dimensions of wisdom, the cognitive, the affective and the reflective work, although not yet heavily researched, nevertheless will go a long way together to positively affect the bottom line.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.James Glacer is an artist who lived in a log cabin in the “woods” of Minnesota. Wanda Violet is a Director of Product Development and Curriculum Writer for a company based out of Atlanta, and was living in Tallahassee. They are now husband and wife and live in Madison County off of Colin Kelly Highway, where Glacer has carved out his own private park and art studio, while Violet telecommutes to her job in Tallahassee. Glacer and Violet have a modern love story; they met on an online dating site, married in Georgia in 2008 at a wedding and dinner attended by their adult children and by 2009, the couple had moved to Madison and now express how happy they are to be part of the Madison community. After living in Tallahassee, Glacer began to miss his woods and the couple began searching for a new residence. They spoke to several realtors, but were unable to nd their “holy grail,” until when out driving one day, they stumbled upon a Fifth Saturday Celebration in Madison. Violet says Glacer was “smitten” with the celebration, Mrs. Leslie’s 10-layer cakes and the town. Glacer and Violet found realtors, Lynette Sirmon and Ben Jones, who they described as sweet and very helpful, and the rst agents who seemed intent on helping the couple nd their dream home. Their house search ended with the Cason home on Dusty Miller Avenue and after moving in, the extremely creative couple began making the house their own. While Violet concentrated on work, the inside of the home and planting owers, Glacer began carving out the yard and creating wood structures all over the property’s landscape. He made paths through the acreage, tearing at vines and shrubs until the property more resembles a park as opposed to the wooded lot that previously accompanied the home. With the help of new friends such as TC Hudson, Dwayne Mitchell and Randy Funk, he built a twostory tree house, a potting shed for his gardening habit and a large shop where he can wile away the hours creating his art. One of the discoveries Glacer made while developing his backyard park, along with a g tree and Tung Oil tree, was a sculpture made from rebar that was bent and twisted to resemble what we agreed looked like an insect, a grasshopper or praying mantis maybe. Both Glacer and Violet would like to meet the artist and be able to place a plaque beside the fun piece bearing the creator’s name, but need help from the community in order to identify this person. When Glacer is not working in the yard, he is working in his shop, creating beautiful works of art with wood. It is said that in times of great catastrophe or impending doom, ones eyes tend to open up and suddenly see and appreciate the small details of life around them; this is exactly how James Glacer’s passion for creating art from wood began. While sitting in a bunker during a rocket attack in Dung Ha, South Vietnam, the young marine, while waiting for the rockets to nd their target, noticed someone had taken the time to carefully construct the wooden joint and crafted two, 2-inch square pegs and pounded them into round holes, serving to hold the bunker together securely. This appreciation of craftsmanship started Glacer thinking about building with wood and after returning to the states, he attended a ne arts program at a university where he was allowed to use their woodworking shop at will. From there, he moved to Northern Minnesota and continued to work with wood, rening and honing his skills. Since 1972, James Glacer has shown his work through exhibits in Minnesota, Arizona, Chicago, Ontario, Washington D.C., California and recently Tallahassee. After moving to Madison, he now limits his shows to Invitational Art Shows, allowing him to focus less time on showing and more time on creating. He built his studio according to his needs, with good lighting and ventilation and large windows, which allows him a great view of the environment around him; his park, the woods and the occasional passing wildlife. Glacer can now take a break and walk to his garden where he can weed and water or walk to the house and visit with Violet. Glacer also makes beautiful cutting boards for the kitchen and those can be seen in town at The Country Store on Range Street, at Tupelo’s in Monticello or LeMoyne Art Center in Tallahassee. To learn more about James Glacer, or to see his art, you can go to his website at www.jamesglaserstudios.com or call (850) 973-8813 to make an appointment.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.This coming school year, 2014-2015, parents will have a new private non-traditional school to check out for their Kindergarten-12thgrade students. The Q.E. Multicultural Art and Training Academy (QEMAATA) Virtual School will open it’s doors Aug. 18, at 1282 SW Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The school is located next door to the Madison County Recreation Center, in the same building where the New Millennium Charter School and staff was previously located. The building is under renovations to bring the structure up to date and to accommodate the school’s virtual curriculum. The virtual schools curriculum will be semester-based virtual teacher facilitated courses, meaning that students will have a teacher on site, but all lessons will be done online. This synchronous learning system will allow students to work more at their own pace but will also give the students the benefit of having a teacher on hand to answer questions and enhance student learning. The school’s goal is to provide an education that is marked with individual attention to a talented and diverse community of students. This diversity includes students with learning disabilities, speech impairment or health related issues, with the school accepting McKay and Step Up For Students scholarships. A renovated building and virtual curriculum are not the only new designs the school plans to bring to Madison. QEMAATA will serve K-12 students Monday through Saturday, offering a six-day school week instead of the average five and will be offering after school programs all six days as well. The school’s Director says this is in order to invest more time with the children in the community and to reach the school’s goal of closing the gap between every child’s potential and his or her day-to-day performance. “With parents, teachers and administrators all working together, we can provide each student with the opportunity to maximize his or her potential.” Along with educational goals, QEMAATA wants to empower and challenge every student to “responsibly meet the challenges of everyday life by promoting not only academic achievements, but personal development and social involvement.” Part of the school’s curriculum will include real-life skill opportunities, such as computer courses and other hands-on skills which will enable students to succeed in their lives after graduation. The Q.E. Multicultural Art and Training Academy Virtual School is currently accepting applications for students as well as teachers who are certified and hold, at minimum, a Bachelor’s Degree in education.

Pictured left to right are: Faith Simmons, Trenton High School instructor Ryan Pass, Daniel Crane, Logan Fitz gerald, Alexandria Simmons, Tela Powers, Jacob Moore, Tyler Burnett and Madison County High School instructor Paige Thomas. Story Submitted by Suwannee River Water Management DistrictFor the second year in a row the Suwannee River Water Management District hosted the Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) students and teachers from Trenton and Madison High Schools for eight days of rst hand experiences of the typical work of engineers, scientists and administrators. The Florida Learns STEM Scholars, the North East Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC) STEM Talent Development 2014 Summer Field Site and Workplace Experience Opportunity partnered with the District and instructors Paige Thomas (Madison County High School) and Ryan Pass (Trenton High School) to bring this program to seven deserving students. The students were from Trenton High School were Logan Fitzgerald, Tela Powers, Alex Simons and Daniel Crane; from Madison County High School were Tyler Burnett, Jacob Moore, Easton Sapp and Leslie Sapp. Students were asked what they hope to gain from this experience and they expressed a desire to learn about the various occupation types at the District as well as job functions. The students went on to say they had heard of the District, but they were not clear on the relationship between the District, public lands and springs. Dave Dickens, Administrative and Operations Bureau Chief and Coordinator at the District for the STEM experience commented, “Providing students with this intimate hands-on opportunity is not only informative towards their prospective career paths, it also increases their levels of environmental awareness.” Dickens coordinated with other staff to expose the youth to a range of professions. Over eight days, they were taught the history of the Water Management Districts and met with the Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle and members of leadership. With Water Resources Division Engineers, they worked on permits and put their new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Mapping and Geonavigational skills to use by spending multiple days getting real hands-on experience in the eld with district personnel. These shadowing activities included: inspecting storm water structures and wetland restorations, observing timber harvesting and forestry management, using scientic instrumentation to measure water quality parameters, monitoring the ow of water in streams and rivers, inspecting agriculture best management practices on local farms, monitoring groundwater wells and participation in many other responsibilities of the District. Students expressed appreciation for staff tailoring the experience to make it relevant and applicable. Visiting Belli Farms greenhouse and riding a Global os sys GPS satellite controlled tractor are some of the highlights they cited. The tour took them to a variety of places such as Poe Springs, Adams Tract River Camp and Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center just to name a few. The Edible Aquifer Demonstration was a hit with all involved. Instructor Ryan Pass expressed his gratitude for the event and eagerly hopes to continue with the next STEM and District work experience. The NEFEC explained the investment in STEM and students, “Recognizing the need for small and rural districts to enhance science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula for gifted and talented secondary students, the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC), in partnership with the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC), and NEFEC will implement the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars (FLSS) program.” For more information visit Panhandle Area Educational Consortium in partnership with Heartland Educational Consortium and North East Florida Educational Consortium at www.oridalearnsstemscholars.org or http://www.nefec.org"www.nefec.org Q.E.

Throughout biblical history, godly men and women have had to stand firm in faith during times of spiritual decline. The Apostle Paul continually urged believers to “stand in faith” and “be strong.” (1 Cor 16:13; Eph 6:10) To illustrate this, he encouraged the Churches of Galatia to “ stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free. ” (Gal 5:1) Likewise, he challenged the Ephesians to “ Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. ” (Eph 6:14) To the Thessalonians, he instructed “ stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. ” (2Th 2:15) In addition, his expectations for Corinthian believers were for them to be “stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.” (1 Cor 15:58) He did so because of the multiple dangers which challenged and endangered the spiritual well-being of the churches. Paul knew the enemy was aggressive, active and menacing. For instance, he knew that some people had already “swerved from the faith,” (1Ti 1:6-7) and made shipwreck. (1Ti 1:19-20) Secondly, certain immature believers faced the risk of departing from the faith by giving “heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils,” resulting in them speaking “lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.” (1Ti 4:1-3) Sadly, he noted that some had “already turned aside after Satan.” (1Ti 5:15) Third, he warned those who would love money that “the love of money was the root of all evil.” This “love” was a “snare” and could “drown men in destruction and perdition.” (1Tim 6:9-10) Because of these hazards, Paul counseled Timothy, his spiritual son in the faith, to “ take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. ” (1Ti 4:16) Further, he expected him to stand and engage these spiritual enemies as a good soldiers in warfare (1Ti 1:18; 2Ti 2:3) He directed Timothy to, “Fight the good fight of faith.” (1Ti 6:12) In addition, he warned that this spiritual struggle would intensify as “the last days” drew near to closing because men would be given to hedonism and narcissism. (2Tim 3:4-5) These two temptations brought the possibilities of one turning their “ears from the truth” so that they would not “endure sound doctrine.” (2Timothy 4:3-4) The sad consequences of this being they would “ profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. ” (Tit 1:16) Peter also warned about “false prophets” (2Pe 2:1-2), “scoffers and mockers” (2Pet 3:3-4) who “walk according to their own ungodly lusts” would also arise. (Peter 3:3-4) Jude said such would be “sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.” (v19) Their generation was not unlike our own. We, too, are facing the same enemies of the Cross. (Php 3:18) Therefore, the need to “Stay the Course” is great. This phrase, when used in the context of war, means to pursue the mission regardless of “adversaries” (1Co 16:9), “afflictions” (2Ti 4:5), “hindrances” (1Th 2:18) or “hardness.” (2Ti 2:3) To Stay the Course allegedly originated as a nautical metaphor on maintaining a constant, unaltering course. In this context 'stay' refers to the ropes or guys and sheets which holds the 'course' (mainsail) in a fixed position appropriate to the heading. Although there are citations from the late 19thcentury which show the phrase describing horses having the stamina to remain on the course of a racetrack. Perhaps this was what Winston Churchill wondered when he remarked, “America, it is a great and strong country, like a workhorse pulling the rest of the world out of despond and despair. But will it stay the course?” In our time of spiritual decline, with so many spiritual dangers facing us today, I also wonder if the contemporary church has the stamina and fortitude to Stay the Course until Jesus comes. Each believer must make that decision for him or herself. However, I will join Joshua and cry, “ but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. ” (Jos 24:15) 2B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, July 9, 2014 Path of Faith By Rev.

Students will train to become Agency D3 special agents during Vacation Bible School at the First Baptist Church of Madison. VBS is set for Sunday, July 13, through Friday, July 18. The theme for the VBS is “Agency D3: Discover. Decide. Defend.” Students, ages three to adult, will collect and log evidence about Jesus. Using their best high-tech operative skills, they will examine eyewitness reports, physical proof and Biblical accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. During the VBS, they will “Discover the truth of the gospel; Decide to believe it; and Defend the decision.” The students will be members of D3, which is an investigative agency organized to discover if Jesus is really who He claims to be and to examine if the Bible is true. This VBS is unusual because it has an apologetics theme, because people not only need to know the Bible is true and that Jesus is God's one and only Son, but they need to know how to defend what they believe when someone asks them why they believe it. The fun will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner served each evening and will last until 8:30 p.m. Kathy McCollum is the VBS Director for the First Baptist Church of Madison. Local Churches, Individuals Use Social Media To Share The Good News By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. For the past few years, social media has invaded our lives from every aspect, including our faith. Churches and ministries have online presences which help them deliver their messages and lessons with everything from YouTube videos to podcasts to audio recorded sermons to Instagram photographs. A number of churches in Madison County have Facebook pages or Facebook groups. These pages and groups carry prayer requests from members and others who have urgent needs and they also carry church news. Local ministers, including Toney Hill, pastor of Greenville Baptist; Jason Justus, pastor of Madison Church of God; and Jackie Watts, pastor of Fellowship Baptist share their Sunday sermons online. Others also do it. Some share through live streaming, some share through digital audio and some through video. Some share through both audio and video. If you attend a different church, or you missed your own church Sunday, you can go download the files and listen during the week, via your iPod or MP3 player. Most cars these days are equipped with auxiliary jacks which allow you to plug in your audio listening device and listen in the car. Some ministers, like Benjie Dyal, pastor of New Home Baptist Church, ( www.benjiedyal.com ) and lay people, like this writer ( jacobbembry.com ) and Vanessa Unglaub ( vunglaub.wordpress.com ), have their own websites and blogs to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with you. If you or your church uses social media to proclaim the message that Jesus saves, please send the information to jacob@jacobbembry.com and we will put the information in The Path of Faith for you.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. “And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher: she was of a great age and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years and departed not from the temple, but had served God with fastings and with prayers night and day. And she coming in the instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.” (Luke 2:36-38, KJV) The scene is the temple of Jerusalem, where Mary and Joseph have just brought the infant Jesus to be circumcised according to Jewish law. There, they present him to the Lord and offer the traditional sacrifice of two turtledoves or two young pigeons; and there, they meet two very extraordinary people. One is Simeon, an elderly man described in Luke 2:25 as “just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.” In some orthodox circles today, he is known as “Simeon the GodReceiver.” The other is Anna (whose name means “favor,” or “grace”), the daughter of Phanuel (meaning “the face or appearance of God”), of the tribe of Asher, one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. At the time of the narrative in Luke’s Gospel, Anna is a devout, elderly widow. The elderly Anna and Simeon had one other thing in common; they both had the privilege of seeing the infant Messiah before their deaths. Long ago, God had promised Simeon that he would see the Christ child before he died, and on this day, the Holy Spirit has summoned him to the temple for this very reason. Upon seeing and holding the infant, he quietly rejoices that he can now depart his earthly life in peace; God has kept His holy promise. Anna, the elderly widow, has been living in the temple since the death of her husband many decades earlier. According to Jewish custom, Anna was probably wed at the age of 14; for a young Jewish maiden like Anna, her wedding day would have been the single most important day of her life, marking the threshold between girlhood and the rest of her adult life as a wife and mother. We are never told the name of Anna’s husband or why he passed away, only that he died after seven years, leaving Anna a widow in her early 20s. For a young Jewish woman, marriage and childbearing were the sum total of her existence, her raison d’etre, and life for a widow in ancient Judea was a precarious enterprise at best. Women could not own property except under unusual circumstances, and thus typically had to rely on the kindness of strangers or the charity of other family members for financial survival. There were few legal protections for widows and orphans – a woman’s testimony was not even allowed in a court of law – and unscrupulous people could exploit them without much fear of legal reprisal. Perhaps this is why there are so many exhortations in the Scriptures for the church to remember especially the widows and orphans, and see that they were properly cared for and treated well. Of course, a widow might marry again; there was the long-standing custom of a deceased husband’s brother taking the widow in marriage, but there is no mention of a brother for Anna’s late husband. Perhaps she could have married another man, being still fairly young, but she didn’t. She may have been too grief-stricken or, after seven years of marriage and no children, she may have been presumed barren, one of those women “whose womb the Lord had closed,” and therefore unmarriageable. However, the Scriptures do not come right out and say directly that she was considered barren, so it may have been her decision to remain a widow for the rest of her life. We cannot know for certain. What is certain, though, is that she did not give in to despair and hopelessness. For Anna to be so bereft of everything that had made up her young adult life of seven years, the future must have looked bleak indeed, and the loneliness of the years stretching out in front of her would be hard for anyone else to imagine. She is left with almost nothing...except her faith. Rather than becoming bitter and angry, she draws on her faith in God for strength and comes to live at the temple as a prophetess, a holy woman, spending the rest of her life ministering to others. Over the years, people became quite accustomed to seeing her serving at the temple. Her faithfulness, wisdom, devotion and gift of prophecy bring her respect and credibility in the eyes of the community, and also bring her closer to God. At the time of Luke’s narrative, she is either 84 years old, or has been a widow for 84 years; the passage is a little ambiguous, with some scholars holding out for 84 as her given age, and others maintaining that she had been a widow for 84 years. That would make her about 105 at the time, which is entirely possible. Tradition has it that Simeon lived until the ripe old age of 360. As soon as Anna sees the infant Jesus, she knows immediately that this is the long-awaited Messiah. She rejoices in her heart and proclaims the news to everyone who will listen. Because of her many years of seeking the Lord’s presence and walking with God, she is in the right place at the right time, to be the first to proclaim the joyous news of the Messiah’s arrival; her words carry weight with those who hear them because of the exemplary life she has led. Today, the Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church commemorate Anna as a saint – Anna the Prophetess. The Eastern Orthodox Church considers Anna and Simeon as the last of the Old Testament Prophets, celebrating their feast day on Feb. 3. In works of art, Anna and Simeon are often included in the iconography of the Presentation of Christ, along with Mary, Joseph and the Holy Infant; according to orthodox tradition, it was in the persons of Anna and Simeon that the Christ child first met the people He would eventually lead in His earthly mission. What we take with us from Anna’s story is her willingness to seek the Lord in all things and to draw upon Him for strength in times of trouble, rather than give in to despair and allow grief to claim the rest of her life. When Anna was mourning her late husband and everything seemed to have been taken from her, she put her faith and trust in God, and allowed Him to lead her to her new life in the temple. Because she was known as a Prophetess by the time her story is told in Luke, we know that she was respected and admired, and that her ministry in the temple must have helped many people over the years. We also know that God must have been pleased with His servant, not only because He blessed her ministry, but also because, before the end of her days, He allowed her to see, with her own eyes, the Son of God, the Messiah who had come to deliver Israel.

I once approached my life and work as if I was building a house. Drive a nail here. Lay a block there. Smear a bit of paint in the corner. Cut out a window now and again. Figuratively, this is how I treated my life, and it is a solid, powerful image. It is also an image with plenty of biblical roots. None other than Jesus himself said in the Sermon on the Mount, “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.” Of course those who ignore his teaching, Jesus said, are like those who build their lives on a sandy foundation with collapse all but imminent. Paul stuck with the theme as well, and he spoke of the possibility that our lives can be soundly constructed from things that will last like bricks and mortar – gold, silver, and precious jewels he called them. Or, Paul says, we can foolishly build with the combustible and momentary materials of wood, hay or straw. It all reminds me of the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf: Some things are built to last. Other things blow away about as quickly as they were created, in spite of our brave squeals and the hair of our chinny, chin, chins. I haven’t given up on this building metaphor completely, but recently I did adopt a new narrative. It’s not about construction, but deconstruction. Last year I visited a housing project in San Salvador that is home to more than a thousand people. With homes, churches, markets and a school, it is a safe and healthy neighborhood, thus far insulated from so much of the gang violence, extortion and troubles of the city. It is no utopia, but it is a shining light within a very dangerous section of the city. The land upon which this neighborhood sits was given to a group of US American volunteers by the city of San Salvador because the city had basically given up on it. It was nothing but a forsaken junkyard, filled with crushed cars, old buses, dilapidated construction equipment, and families: People were living in the junkyard because they Path of Faith 10B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, July 9, 2014 € Open 24/7 € Disappearing Dump Trucks story cont. on page 11B

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!" His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means? The son replied, "I do know!" "Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean?” "That's easy, Daddy..." the young boy replied excitedly," It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth..'

Ultimately, these people were moved out, new homes were built and the people moved back in. My favorite part of this venture, a nd my new narrative, involved a dump truck that was just too big and heavy to move. It sat in the middle of the jobsite untouched, until six eight-y ear-old boys attacked it. Every day these little boys, none past third grade, would come to the site with their hacksaw blades, pieces of t-shirts wrappe d around the edges for handles, and they would saw away. Then they would take whatever they cut off and sell it for a few pennies at a time on the str eet, helping to meagerly support their families. This went on day after day, week after week, and month after month until one day, almost like magic, this huge dump truck weigh ing tens of thousands of pounds was just gone. Six elementary school-aged children had consumed it, like vultures consuming a carcass. One of the onsite missionaries told me that when he felt like quitting, that when he thought what he tried to do didn’t matter, or when overwhelming odds made it all hopeless, he would revisit the memory of those little boys confronting their dump truck day after day. They kn ew, as only children can know, that if they stayed at it long enough, nothing would be impossible. The truck would one day disappear. Those little boys can help reorient our lives. We may not “build” a whole lot with the few years we have been given, and parts of what we build will get blown away. But with the blessed ignorance of children, we can keep sawing – keep parenting, keep teaching, keep fostering, kee p nursing, keep showing up at whatever it is we do – until finally, almost like magic, the dump trucks disappear. Holy Humor A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump. "Reverend," said the young man, "I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip." The minister chuckled, "I know what you mean. It's the same in my business." Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about. The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt." Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about. He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming." The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play. "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances." During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up." At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner." And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!
