From Pastor Andy... We are living in uncertain political and economic times. In these times, we must …walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). What is faith; and, what is sight? Hebrews 11:1 states, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The word “sight” indicates the ability to see something through earthly eyes. Sight enables us to see people and material things, while faith gives us insight to understand God and His plan for our lives. When we are hurting, we can turn to God for help. Paul did, and God spoke to him with these words, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9). Our weakness, our hurting, our cries to God for help bring us into a closer relationship with the Father and, at the same time, deepen our worship and invite God’s strength into our lives. By faith, we serve a living God whom we cannot see. By faith, we are able to experience love beyond human comprehension. By faith, we are able to ride out the storms of life. American heroine Helen Keller, shortly before her sixtieth birthday, expressed pity for those who have eyes, yet do not see. Her long years of physical blindness gave her a spiritual insight which enabled her to understand and enjoy life. She said, “If the blind put their hand in God’s they find their way more surely than those who see but have not faith or purpose.”---Western Recorder “Oh say can you see, by the dawns early light…gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. “ If we are to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave, we must …walk by faith, not by sight. In His Love, Andy

During the concert weekend, Dr. Tom Smith will be our guest clinician and conductor. Dr. Smith is former director of the Auburn University Singers and Choir. He began directing the Auburn University choir in 1973 and continued over 30 years while, at the same time, leading worship at Providence Baptist Church in Opelika. It will be an honor for our choir to be under his direction to learn and worship. What I have learned about the great hymns is that, when written, they all contained a fresh, timeless message and unforgettable melody. The Baptist Hymnal contains hundreds of hymns; but, when it comes right down to it, there are about 75 that have become famous. And, several of them have continued as favorites during our generation. The arrangement of How Great Thou Art that we enjoy now was made popular by the Billy Graham Crusade during the late 1950s and early 1960s. It’s most famous singer, George Beverly Shea, is still living in North Carolina; and a person my brother knows just installed a new plasma TV in Shea’s home. Shea is 100 years old and I think they gave him a lifetime warranty on the TV. Music certainly evolves over time. Even the hymns we enjoy, such as Amazing Grace, change their structure and have verses added. The 5th stanza to Amazing Grace – When we’ve been there ten thousand years – was added in hymnals in the early 1900’s. Recently, Chris Tomlin composed a new chorus to the hymn which, I believe, will become a permanent part of this most popular hymn of all time. Let’s all take advantage of this opportunity to worship together through the singing of these great hymns. We will make a recording of the choir to mark this event at Taylor Road Baptist Church. I hope you will plan to attend with your family, invite your friends and neighbors, and pray for the choir as we prepare the music. Join us Sunday night, August 9, at 6:30 p.m.!!! Let’s Sing Together,

Alan
