Bobby Thornhin, Former Pastor of Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it." Mat- thew 16:18 (NKJV) For many, this is perhaps one of the more confusing verses that Jesus spoke to His disciples. It seems to say very plainly, does it not, that Peter is the rock upon which the church is built? This verse is a prime example of the difference between Bible reading and Bible study and of the im- portance of understanding the nuances and difficul- ties of translation from the Greek to English. There is however hope for those of us who don't speak a lan- guage other than English, a Strong's concordance is of enormous value in this situation. In this verse we find that Jesus says Peter is (petros=literally, a piece of rock) and that on this rock (Petra=rock) I will build My church. So Peter is a piece of rock but Jesus is going to build His church on.the rock. So then what is.~the "r~" upon which th~ ch~'.:is built? The rock is the revelation from God to Peter of Jesus' iden- tity, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." The church is built on the incontrovertible fact that Jesus is indeed "the Christ, the Son of the living God." The church, Christ's church, God's church, is built on God Himself. "For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:4b). And glad we are that our faith and hope and indeed, our eternity is built on Him, we sing hymns that attest to our faith in this, "our hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus blood and righteousness", "on Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand." It was Peter himself who quoted from Isaiah 28 in his first epistle, "Behold I lay in Zion a chief cor- nerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame." Again Pe- ter quotes from the Psalms 118, "The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner- stone," It is evident that Peter knew Who the foun- dation of the church was, it would have been to him a ridiculous notion that he was the church's founda- tion. Peter also knew some- thing that we all must realize as followers of Christ, we are the pieces of rock that make up the building that rests upon the foundation, we are the body of Christ, the Church. "Rock of ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee."

February 4, 2018 Dear Mr. Editor Me and sister Sadie wuz talkin' the other day about what your paper done said bout the supervisors voted to pay a fine and interest cause an employee didn't send copies of W-2 forms to them federal folks at the Department of Rev- enue. Fer three years they didn't get forms from good ole broke Wilkinson County. So now here goes the Board of Supervisors votin' to pay $10,400 pen- alty plus interest. Keepin' quiet ain't never caused Aunt Blabby no trouble, but iffen I wuz good at kee- pin' quiet I shore wouldn't be livin' up to the name of Blabby. So I am openin' my mouth to say somehow it jest don't seem right to me fer the county to be payin' out that money, cause re- ally it's the taxpayers what is payin'. Seems like to me and to Sadie that the em- ployee what didn't do a proper job should be the one to'pay. I checked with Rev. Willie, and he say he feels the same way bout it. He quoted to us from Gen- esis 4:9 where it says, "Am I my brother's keeper?" Looks like nobody wants fo take responsibility fer anything anymore. Every- body always wants to blame somethin' on somebody else. Sadie got her quota- tion book and found some- thin' Abraham Lincoln had to say: "You can't escape the r~.~ponsibility of tomorrow by evading it today." Well, it looks to me like that employee evaded what she wuz supposed to do fer three years, and now she still ain't responsible. Yours truly, Aunt Blabby From Beaver Creek at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb- ruary 1, 2018. The Reverend Warren Whitaker officiated at the service. Mr: Tharp was born in New Orleans, La on August 11, 1948, the son of the late Warren B. Tharp and Mar- garet Elizabeth Terry Tharp. He died at the Wilkinson County Senior Care in Cen- treville on Tuesday, January 30, 2018. He is survived by his broth- er, Terry Tharp of Wood~lle. He was preceded in death by his parents. Graveside services for William S.
