  • Faith Column

    In Genesis 2, we can read that God brought the trees up from the earth; trees that were good for food and beautiful to the landscape.

    God gave us the bing cherries, sweet limes, possibly all 16 varieties of bananas found in South America, coconuts, maybe the wide variety of apples found throughout the United States, grapefruit, kiwi, date figs and so many more. The orchards that stretched across the Garden of Eden controlled the landscape indeed.

    Two students from his church, Gencie Taylor and Brandon Todd, are freshmen at Campbellsville University, and each gave student testimonies.

  • Faith Column

    Alan Calhoun is a person with whom I can easily relate. We're both the kind of guys who can look back to recognize a great opportunity five minutes after it has knocked its final knock and gone next door.

    Calhoun lives in Bristol, Conn. with his wife in their home, which they hoped to redecorate a year or more ago. They looked all over for just the right accoutrements to add that touch of class and "Martha Stewart-esque" hominess that they were looking for.
