The 2014 KBC/SCC REUNION will be held at the campus park in Winchester on Saturday, August 23rd from 11 am to 2 pm. Those are the hours we have reserved the library. You may come earlier and stay later but will likely not have access to the Library. Please note the following: 1) Please bring 2 (or more) dishes (and yes – because someone is going to ask – full of food) for the pitch in dinner to begin at 11:30 AM. 2) Please bring a gallon of tea / lemonade/ or some other kind of drink to set on a drink table to be shared by all. 3) Please bring plates/cups/utensils/napkins enough for your group. 4) Please make sure you help clean up the area once lunch is over. We have to leave the library building as we found it. There are tables / chairs inside the library and if we have a large crowd it is possible some may sit outside to eat. We will not have a planned program but we may have some impromptu speakers whose time will be limited. When all have gone through the lunch line, we will be asking the former students to stand and quickly state your name, where you came from to school, and the years you attended. We will take group photos outside on the steps after lunch. Bring your camera . Please pray for a nice day. IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND, please let one of the following know: by August 10th, Larry Miles (larrymiles1952@gmail.com) , Sandra Naugle (sknaugle@gmail.com) , or Bob Ross (bobross275@yahoo.com) so that we may have some idea of crowd size before we arrive. PLEASE spread the word to others. HOPE to see you there!!

“Buy The Truth And Sell It Not.” This is the biography of Bro. E. Gaston Collins.  It was  written by his grandson, Frank Cook of Lewisburg, TN.  I had the  privilege of  meeting  Bro. Cook on Sunday (6-30-14) at  “Summer Celebration” a Lipscomb University. Bro. Collins preached at Borden Church of Christ from 1952-1957 Click here for information on the book and how to order it. It is well worth the cost and is an interesting read.

“Messengers  of the Risen Lord In The Land of The Rising Sun.” This is a book  about single women missionaries  in Japan (1890’s thru  WWII).  It was written by Bonnie Miller.  I  heard  her 2  presentations at  “Summer Celebration”  at  Lipscomb the past  2  days (6- 30 & 7-1). Though  about the  single ladies ministering   in Japan, the  book talks  about  missionary  families that were  associated  with “our fellowship” in those days.  Bonnie Miller told me that the  ‘Word and Work” was   invaluable in her research, especially the  column “On Foreign Fields,” by  Don Carlos Janes (1879-1944)   I have  asked  Bonnie  to write  a  more detailed  review of her book. The  book can be  ordered  from  Leafwood Publishers.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
