Bobby ThornhiII, Former Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches ter the Living God? If we are preaching, teaching, or otherwise leading, are we guilty of being concerned with our own agenda, or do we earnestly expect a visitation from God? Could it be that we are more aware of what our friends are wearing and the topic Of their conversation than of the Spirit's whisper qui- et stirring in our midst? Are we more concerned about who won the football game than hearing what God is saying to us? "Oh that You would rend the heavens and come down!" Isaiah 64:1&2. Would that He would see fit to burst into our worship services that aren't and cause wide- spread order to breakout in the midst of our chaos; oh, oh, that he would exert His majesty upon those ser- vices and bring us to the very brink of death so that we could once and forever know that only in Him and by Him is there life at all. Maybe then we could un- derstand that our sole rea- son for existence is to do His will, to honor Him with our every thought, deed, and attitude, and to wor- ship Him as He deserves. Maybe therlJwe~ could sing with conviction, I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene!!! "Let all the earth fear the Lord; Let all the in- habitants of the world stand in awe of Him." Psalm 33:8 (NKJV) Powerful words for a world that no longer holds anyone or thing in awe ex- cept itself. As music often does; the first line of the old hymn "I Stand Amazed in the Pres- ence" caught me by the heart the other day as I listened to David Phelps singing. My mind went im- mediately to the thought, "do we really stand amazed in His presence? Are we amazed at all by the near- ness of our Savior? Are we astonished at the per- son of Jesus the Nazarene? To stand amazed in Je- sus' presence requires a degree of surrender and humility that I'm not sure exists very often in "Chris- tians" today. I think that we are a lot more likely to be amazed (one way or the other) by the preaching, by the song service, by the number of folks in service Sunday morning, etc. etc. etc. Is it even so that we come to Church services hoping, longing to encoun- Terrace M.

Mississippi BBB received a call from a Meridian busi- ness about a door-to-door salesperson offering adver- tising to local restaurants. The company thought about the offer and asked for the representative to leave some information behind for them to review. The sav- vy business decided to do some checking on their own and contacted BBB serving Mississippi with concerns. BBB Mississippz couldn't find complete information on Restaurant Entertain- ment Inc., a company based in Oregon, so a BBB inves- tigater reached out to the company to see if anyone was selling their services in Meridian. A representative from Restaurant Entertain- ment Inc. did confirm that there was someone selling advertising in that area at one time, but no one• was currently seUing ir~.Mothdi, an, Mississippi. Restaurant Entertainment Inc. sells ad- vertising to local businesses that is published on local restaurant menus. BBB contacted the restaurants in question but neither had knowledge of this program and had not signed any contracts. BBB made a fol- low up call to Restaurant Entertainment Inc. and the company stated the "con- tracts" were never final- ized. To sell "door to door" in the city of Meridian you must obtain a permit from the city. A privilege permit department employee con- firmed to BBB that no such permit was applied for by anyone selling on behalf of Restaurant Entertainment Inc. BBB is encouraging businesses to contact us if they signed up for Restau- rant Entertainment Inc. services, since according to the company no contracts for the area were placed. "We want businesses and residents to make sure they know who they are doing ~busines~with," says John 'Hara, CEO BBB serv- ing Mississippi. "Unfortu- nately there are people who are trying to get money for things they can't deliver." "I am glad the business contacted us and made us aware of the company." O'Hara said, "Businesses are consumers too, and we encourage them to use our resources to get information on who they are doing busi- ness with." How To Avoid Door to Door Avoid Scares Don't fall for high- pressure sales tactics.III Scammers use high-pres- sure tactics, hoping you'll make a purchase or bad de- cision before you can think it over. Don't fall for it. Ask to see the terms and conditions. Legiti- mate advertising compa- nies will give you the de- tails in writing, including the commitment period, total price and cancellation instructions. Request to see the seller's license. Many municipalities require a so- licitation license before you can sell door-to-door. If your town has this law, be sure to ask to see the seller's li- cense After marrying William R. Ulmer, her husband of 46 years, they moved to Centreville where she spent the majority of her life.

She was instrumental in designing and creating cos- tumes for the production of the CentreviUe nativity at Christmas. She moved to Natchez three years ago and made it her home. She attended First Baptist Church and worked at the Natchez Visi- tors Center. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and one brother, Jerry Martin.
