  • Fall brings nekkid ladies to Southern landscapes
    Wednesday, September 13, 2017 6:00 PM

    This is the time of year many gardeners have been waiting for all summer.

    If you’re thinking about the cool front that blew through this past weekend, I’m afraid you’re incorrect. What I’m talking about is the emergence of naked ladies in gardens all across Mississippi.
  • EMCC's Shaunak lands excellence in government award
    Dr. Raj Shaunak wasn’t looking for a career when he volunteered in 1991 to teach math to adult basic education students at East Mississippi Community College. He had already achieved the American dream.

    He stayed through the exodus of the area’s major manufacturers, rose to the top of the college’s Workforce Services division and helped spawn a manufacturing renaissance that has retooled the Golden Triangle.

    Kemper Academy’s softball coaches have about as much time shuffling their schedule as they have playing games over the last month.

    But while several dates and matchups have changed, two things have remained true: The Lady Rams keep piling up wins, and they’re about to be really busy these next couple of weeks.

  • DUNCAN/Are You the King of the Jews?
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn to Luke 23:1-5. Remember that Jesus is before the Sanhedrin, the council of the elders. The Sanhedrin did not have the right of the death penalty. If the death penalty was going to be administered to Jesus, they would have to go to Pilate, the Roman authority. As you read there are three things that I want you to be on the lookout for.
  • DUNCAN/‘I Am Among You As the One Who Serves’
    Wednesday, July 12, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn to Luke 22:24-27 as we continue looking at the events of the last night before Jesus’ crucifixion. In this passage we find the disciples arguing about who is the greatest, and Jesus rebukes them for it. This is a pretty humiliating story about the disciples, but Luke doesn’t tell it to shame them. He tells it to teach us a lesson. You see, Jesus is getting at one main thing in his rebuke: our attitude, our ambition. He’s exhorting us to a life of other-centered, Gospel-motivated service. As we look at what Jesus says, I want you to see four ways Luke gets this point across: the blindness of the disciples, the blindness of the world, the nature of the kingdom, and the motivation for our service.
  • DUNCAN/‘My Words Will Not Pass Away’
    Wednesday, June 14, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn to Luke 21:25-38 as we continue to make our way through a passage in which Jesus has been addressing His disciples about future events. There is a criticism of the Christian teaching on the end times that goes something like this. Because the Bible teaches that Jesus is coming again and that this earth will pass away, this keeps Christians from being involved in this world. Jesus’ teaching shows that that criticism misunderstands what the Bible's teaching on the last things is for. Jesus’ teaching about the last things is designed to equip us for today, and He shows us this specifically in this passage in several ways. Let me just give you four words as we work through the passage together: confidence, trust, watch, and pray.
  • “DUNCAN/Blessed is He Who Comes in the Name of the Lord”
    Wednesday, April 26, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn to Luke 19:28-44. This passage takes place on the Sunday before the Friday of Jesus’ crucifixion. Jesus does things here that He does nowhere else prior to this point. So often in the gospel story, when someone comes to Jesus and says, “You’re the Messiah,” Jesus says, “Do not tell anyone this.” That doesn’t happen here. Here He is acclaimed as the Messiah, and He says, “That’s right. I am.” Why is that different here? Luke wants you to pay attention to that question. In this passage Luke is saying, “Behold, this is your King. This is what He’s coming to do.” He’s directing our attention to Jesus’ person and work.
  • DUNCAN/‘Temptation, sin, and faith’
    Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 17:1-6. I want to remind you that throughout Luke 16 Jesus has been dealing with both the Pharisees’ lives and their teaching. Their sin is leading the people of God astray, so here Jesus is concerned to say to His disciples, “Do not live and teach like the Pharisees.” In many ways it's a contrast; it's a positive exhortation in light of His negative criticism of the Pharisees in Luke 16.
