Steve Grohman will be conducting a Creation Seminar This coming Sunday through Wednesday.
Ever wondered what the case for creation is and if the Bible has answers that can be verified by science and the geological record? Does the Bible account for Dinosaurs? Is there any record or proof of Noah’s flood?
Over five sessions these and other issues will be explored to give someone a greater understanding of the Biblical answers to a worldview that includes God and gives answers to the case for creation.
“For me, the creation seminar was one of the most faith affirming and educational experiences I had ever had up to that point in my life.” Scott Phillips
“I always just considered evolution as a tool God used to create the world, however hearing and seeing someone explain creation it help me better understand and appreciate what the Bible actually says and the science there is to prove that to be the case.” Becky P
This seminar is relevant and will hold the attention of kids and adults. He uses hundreds of slides and fossils in his presentation to demonstrate the case for creation and a creator.
Historian, Archivist and Author Forrest Cooper who writes about unusual and fascinating aspects of the state’s history and culture will be at the Clinton Library Feb.2 at 6:30PM.
He will give an interesting and informative talk based on his Looking Back Mississippi, Towns and Places which is a collection of 39 essays and the articles that cover all corners of the state from the mid 1800’s- to the 1930’s.
February 2, 6:30 p.m. Quisenberry Library-Historian, archivist and author Forrest Cooper of Florence will speak on his work that focuses on fascinating aspects of the state’s history, culture, products, and people.
Quisenberry Library Historian, archivist and author Forrest Cooper of Florence has for over 30 years written a regular column for Mississippi Magazine about unusual, fascinating aspects of the state’s history, culture, products, and people. Whether describing the Jubilee Beverage Company of Jackson, the origins of the Mississippi State Fair, a Mississippi veteran who fought at Iwo Jima, or Biloxi’s Riviera Hotel, Cooper’s “Looking Back” columns are thoroughly researched and written with verve and clarity. Looking Back Mississippi: Towns and Places collects 39 of Cooper’s best essays on the various cities, towns, dwellings, parks, and institutions of historical resonance. Covering all corners of the state, from the mid-1800s to the 1930s, the volume offers an engaging history of the state, emphasizing the obscure and small-scale over the big picture. Photographic and illustrative postcards from Cooper’s private collection enhance his work that covers the state, north to south.
The American Heart Association is encouraging Metro Jackson to “Go Red” for National Wear Red Day, February 3, 2017. National Wear Red Day® is a day dedicated to bringing attention to the staggering fact that each year, 1 in 3 women dies of heart disease and stroke.
Cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. kill approximately one woman every 80 seconds. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day® and Donate to Go Red For Woman. By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
Go Red For Women is a movement that starts with you. Lead by example and make the time to “Know Your Numbers.” It’s knowledge that could save your life. Five numbers, that all women should know to take control of their heart health are: Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI). Knowing these numbers can help women and their healthcare provider determine their risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. It’s time for all women to learn the most critical numbers in their life — their hearts depend on it.
Through the outreach and efforts of Go Red For Women, today about 293 fewer women in the U.S. die from heart disease and stroke each day.
How to GO RED for National Wear Red Day:
On National Wear Red Day®, be sure to wear something red to show your support for women with heart disease and stroke.
