COME AND HITCH A RIDE ON THE FREEDOM TRAIN!

Who has ever heard of Harriet Tubman before? Her story is an exciting one. She was a runaway slave who was able to get to the north with the help of some sympathetic people both white and black. She was so thankful for the help that she had received that she decided to risk her own life to become a conductor on the famous Underground Railroad. Although she could neither read nor write and was rather frail, she was bold in her efforts to assist escaped slaves in getting safely beyond the Mason Dixon line. In her many years of service, she made nineteen trips and freed over 300 former slaves, including several of her own family members.
As Christians, we are in a similar situation as Mrs. Tubman. We too have escaped a slavery of sorts. We have escaped the slavery of sin! We no longer are headed on the highway to hell but because of Jesus’ death on the cross we too have hitched a ride on the Freedom Train. A train headed for our heavenly home!

Soon and Very Soon! The weekly blog by Jeff Carnie

Soon and Very Soon:

A lady was cleaning her house and singing Gospel songs as she worked. She began singing, “Soon and very soon, we are going to see the king…”

Her little son was in the next room and began singing along with Mom. Something was a little off, however, so Mom stopped to listen. The preschooler’s version: “Soon, and very soon, we are going to Burger King…”

Haha! Be Blessed

FREEDOM! The weekly blog by Jeff Carnie

FREEDOM

In the movie Brave Heart, Mel Gibson plays the role of a man from Scotland whose name was Wallace. It was a great movie – very graphic in the battle scenes, but it really gave you a feel of what battles were like back in those days.

Wallace was trying to win Scotland’s freedom from the cruel rule of England. The King of England at this time was a man named Longshanks. He was as cruel as he was wicked. Longshanks hatred for both Scotland and Wallace grew as the movie progressed and Wallace won many victories against England..

But in the end Wallace is betrayed by a friend and captured by Longshanks who is now older and very ill. It is Longshanks plan to not merely kill Wallace but to have him beg for mercy and a quick death.

As the movie ends Wallace is brought to the court yard before a jeering crowd – they mock him, spit at him, and throw things at him.Then the King’s executioner begins to torture him,telling him that if he begs for mercy they will make the death quick.

Meanwhile Longshanks is up in his room – on his death bed – waiting to hear his enemy Wallace beg for mercy….

After not responding, Wallace tries to speak – though it is difficult because his throat is messed up from being tortured.The man in charge of the torture gets the crowd to be silent so they all can hear Wallace beg. But instead of begging for mercy, Wallace summons up what little strength he has left to scream with great force the word –FREEDOM!!!!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY and  be blessed

Help us spread the word! Tell a friend!
