Enough about Baylor! There were at least six pages worth of "information" on the Baylor controversies in the Sept. 22 edition.

God is doing more in Texas than most people are aware. Please seek out and focus on successful ministries around the state instead of perpetuating the controversies by publicizing them, and publicizing them and publicizing them.


CYBER COLUMN by Brett Younger: Judgment Day

Judgment Day

By Brett Younger

When I was 15 years old, my father was the pastor of the strictest church in the world. In Saltillo, Miss., pastor of the Baptist church was—next to coach of the high school football team—the most important job in town. My father preached loudly—a bit like John the Baptist. He is a kind and caring man, but when I was growing up, he frightened me.

That summer, I got a job in Tupelo eight miles away. At that time, you could get a driver’s license at 15. Now that seems about 10 years too soon. My father taught me how to drive the right way—hands at 10 and 2 o’clock, five miles below the speed limit, acting with utmost patience—“Don’t ever drive in a hurry.” As part of my teenage rebellion, I put my hands at 9 and 3 o’clock and went five miles above the speed limit.
