Hats Off To The Women of Agriculture

   It is far more than a pun to say our region’s modern history is rooted in agriculture. While railroad enthusiasts can correctly claim Henry Flagler’s early 1900s southward expansion opened the way for local produce to become available to greater markets, the pioneering farm families were the ones who saw to it those rail cars were filled. Wilfred Vick was one of the men who came a little later in 1917, and returned from Ohio with his family in 1918, perhaps not knowing he was beginning a legacy now celebrating their centennial in our community.

Advancing through Adversity

  Beloved, don’t forget that every day must be a day of advancement. If you have not made any advancement since yesterday, in measure, you are robbing yourself of a great future. There is only one way for you between Calvary and glory, and it is forward. It is every day forward. It is no day back. It is advancement with God. It is cooperation with Him in Spirit.
