CA STUDENTS AT SCIENCE FAIR -- The group pictured above shows of all of the Centreville Academy students who participated at the CA Science Fair in Centreville and the District Science Fair held recently at Brookhaven Academy, The photo at right shows CA students, from left to right: 8th grader Logan AIIday and 7th graders Ethan Garig and Weston LeBlanc. -- Photo Submitted A column by Rev. Bobby ThornhilL Former Pastor of Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churehes "For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him cruci~ fieeL" 1 Corinthians 2:2 (NKJV) Paul was not limiting himself to only preach- ing the crucifixion, he was preaching the entire mes- sage of Jesus' life, birth, death and resurrection. Paul's style of preach- ing was later known as "kerygmatic," a style that involved the whole of Je- sus' life and ministry. The emphasis on the Crucifix- ion was central to kerygma as it was through Christ's death that "atonement" was made possible. If He had not died He could not have risen again, and much of our theology would be empty. Quite possibly it was also the central theme of the kerygma because it was the main event in Jesus' life that was wit- nessed by multitudes and was the "talk of the town," therefore it was something to build on for Paul and others who preached the kerygma. Many are the churches and denominations today that could benefit from the Great Apostle's attitude as expressed in our text. Paul says he determined, he decided, he made a con- scious decision and effort to preach Jesus Christ cru- cified. Paul was not bur- dened by denominational doctrine and he preached against the "traditions .of men" as being worthy of obedience. Churches and denominations are divided because of our "traditions" and "beliefs." We're not even unified in the most important teachings of our Lord. We should take a cue from St. Paul and make a determination to preach Jesus and him crucified. That is the foundation, the bedrock upon which Chris- tianity was founded and upon which it will forever stand. The preaching of tradition and church doc- trine will never bring one lost soul into the kingdom, it might fill our sanctuar- ies, but it will not cause anyone to surrender his life to Jesus the Crucified. The most important fact in all of human history is that Jesus died for our sins, and lives forever at His Father's side. Believe it, live it, preach it, until He returns. The BEST THING to happen on the WORST DAY of your life. ' Wilkimon ouMty!

Adams & Lake Mary by Rhonda Quirk We are still waiting on the flood waters to recede enough for the power to be restored to Lake Mary and Loch Leven. Hopefully, that will be sometime this week. I am ready to go home. We won't be able to drive in for a while, but boating back and forth is beautiful this time of year. I love springtime on the lake. This spring has brought some unusual little feath- ered creatures to our area. A~r much research, I feel confident that they are Inca doves. Inca doves, sometimes referred to as the Mexican dove, are not commonly seen in Mississippi. These tiny doves are native to Mexico and the southwest United States. It is a privilege to host them. The Inca dove ranges in size from about 6.5 inches to 9.1 inches and weigh 1.1 to 2 ounces. They are slender, with gray, brown body covered in a scaled pat- tern of feathers. The tail is long and squared, edged in white feathers. Their under- wings are reddish and upon take off produce a rattling noise. They are a delight to observe. These small doves walk upon the ground push- ing their heads up with each step. They are easily star- tled, but do not fly far and resettle in a nearby tree or bush. However they are very quick. I have yet to get a de- cent picture of one. I am not sure why they are here, but I am pleased by their visit. I also want to remind folks that spring is a won- derful time to enjoy The Far Corner, but it is also a dangerous time. As the wa- ter recedes, the snakes are searching for dry ground, so watch your step. The mos- quitoes are also out in frill force. The bull gnats haven't swarmed yet, but we have encountered a few. Insect re- pellent is a must if you are planning to visit. The water itself also poses a danger if you are not familiar with the back waters of Lake Mary and the Mississippi River. I urge everyone to use caution as the fishing season begins. No matter what rea- san'you decide to visit, I can promise you will find yourself in a natural won- derland. The Far Corner is bursting into spring. You can feel life flowing from every nook and cranny. Oh! It is a miraculous time of the year, one I hope you won't miss!
