Recently my 8 year old great nephew decided he wanted to bow hunt. After purchasing and returning a bow from a well-known discount memhant because he could not shoot it, we heard of a local business which would custom fit indvid- uals and teach them the proper way to shoot a bow. So we decided to try him out and are so thankful we did. Mr. Roy Hendry, Jr., of B&H Amhery located at B&H Farm Supply in WoedviUe far sur- passed his call of duty. Not only did he custom fit this 8 year old with a bow and arrows suit- able for him and that would last him until his teens, but he taught him so much about the safety and proper use of the bow. My nephew repeats Mr. Hendrfs instru ons each time he picks his bow up to practice. I am guilty of en'ticizing a business if I feel that rye had bad service. So after the service we received at this local busi- i ................................................................. :-~::~:~,,,~,~::.~:::~:~:~?::; ............... v::~:::::;=:~N~]~:~:;~::;J nes.q I could not pass up the i ~iili :: ~W to ~mmr end them. ~e, prefess~o~mlism, and [iiiiii~ii):i~i~iii:,N ~ii~ii~d;i:i;iii patience were remarkable.

Hendry, Jr. This was my first A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor try to "explain" away this verse; saying that God al- ways answers prayers (of the righteous, yes); or that God would never abandon anyone. Maybe some ar- gument could be made if this were a singular verse; it is not, there are three verses in Jeremiah that re- peat this command nearly verbatim, 7:16, 11:14, and 14:11, see also 15:1-9. God has clearly had enough of their idolatry; to the point that He no longer wants to hear prayers on their behalf. Is there a lesson in this for us today? Look around; as a Nation have we not turned our back on God? Are we not re- moving every reference to Him from our society? Are we not shedding innocent blood? Are we not calling evil good and good evil? Listen to the news, read the paper, except among a shrinking few God is not welcome in our coun- try today; how terrible the thought that God could say over us "do not pray for this people." Let us be of- ten in prayer before God turns a deaf ear to those prayers. visit to B&H Farm Supply, but will certainly not be my last. Woedville should be so proud of this business and the owner. Sincerely, Carol Bryant Centreville Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make in- tercession to Me; for I will not hear you." Jer- emiah 7:16 (NKJV) In all of God's word to His people there are few if any passages that are more chilling than this verse spoken to the proph- et Jeremiah. "Do not pray for this people;" how aw- ful must it be to reach a level of depravity that causes God to turn away and command Others not to intercede for them. A chill- ing and horrible thought; terrible words for the na- tion of Judah and for any others who would disobey and dishonor God by turn- ing their allegiance to false gods and idols and bla- tantly disobeying God's word. In so doing Judah has angered God and His wrath is soon to be poured out upon them (captivity in Babylon).
