Bobby Thornh/H, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "For though by this time ought to be teach- ers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For every- one who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe." Hebrews 5:12 & 13 (NKJV) We know of course that the writer of Hebrews is not referring to physical food and milk, and neither is he speaking of human infants; this writer is using food and age as metaphors in this lesson on Spiritual growth. The central thought here concerns the lack of growth in the Spirit that must char- acterize the life of a believer in Jesus Christ. It is pain- fully evident that too many "Christians" fall into the cat- egory of "babes" as Hebrews declares in the above text. Using another analogy, these folk are "root bound." They do not reach out beyond their tiny sphere of interaction in any serious attempt to grow; in effect, their roots do not spread, and like a plant in a too small pet, they are pre- vented from realizing any growth because of the tiny environment that they have chosen for themselves. This condition is forced upon the plant, but chosen by those who do not seek opportuni- ties to grow. Wanting only to hear and know the basic tenets of Christianity again and again, they never rise to the level of leaders, and are a burden upon the Church as a whole; always needing instruction but never able to provide leadership to others. I speak here of those who are capable but not ~lling to grow. Come on guys, let's begin to seek the Lord, study His word, and grow toward maturity in Christ Jesus. Circuit Court Takes Action On A Number Of Cases Sixth District Circuit Judge Lillie Blackmon Sand- ers has taken action on a number of criminal cases ap- pearing on the local court's docket.

Bos Changes (Continued from Page 1) "Mr. Wilkerson has a cli- ent who is looking at buying property in Wilkinson Coun- ty which is served by this road. Mr. Wilkerson states that old deeds in the area show that the road is public," said Lewis. "It is not named on the official county map and is not on the county's of- tidal list of public roads." Supervisor Hollins stated that the road was in his dis- trict, but it was not a public road. "I have never worked this road in all my years as supervisor," he stated. Lewis replied, "Then, I will tell Attorney Wilkerson that this is not a public road per board instruction." Supervisor Jackson re- ported that as fast as he can dean up illegal dump sites in his district, someone comes right behind and dumps more trash and garbage at the sites. '~vVe need to look at the grant for funding which will Jhelp pay the cost of a litter control officer for the county," said Jackson. "We need to do something to stop people from illegally dumping in our county." "The county needs to pass a litter control ordinance which sets forth penalties for people who illegally dump in this county," said Adminis- trator Lewis. W e can apply for fimding for a litter patrol officer in April, 2014."

Supervisor Nettles asked Administrator Lewis, "What is the status of the county's purchase of the land where the Ft. Adams Volunteer Fire Department is located?" Lewis replied, "We have been unable to locate any corporate records or the names of any of the former officers. This means we will can't hold this project up any sites all over the county. longer.
