COLUMN: A night under the stars

The night sky is filled with wonders in which no one has ever been able to fully understand. After the sun sets, and on a clear night, one can see millions of tiny stars twinkling in the dark sky. This amazing sight captures the eye of the beholder. 

We don’t have to travel very far each day before having the privilege of passing an American flag on display. The flag represents honor, respect, freedom and pride for our country as well as helping us remember those who currently serve and those who have served our country. 

ROCKINGHAM — Vendors set up in the newly renovated Harrington Square Saturday for what has become an anticipated holiday tradition.

The day started out beautifully, but within a few hours rain began slowly creeping in.

ROCKINGHAM — Downtown will light up with around 90 vendors, as well as a new look, on Saturday as the Rockingham Downtown Corporation, Richmond County Tourism Authority, and the city sponsor Christmas on the Square, now in it’s 23rd year.

ROCKINGHAM — Gospel Music Hall of Famer Carman brought his musical ministry to Roberdel Baptist Church Nov. 18.  

“We are very excited to have Carman as a guest singer,” said church member Logan McKenzie, who began coordinating the concert in July.

EAST ROCKINGHAM — The halls of Place of Grace were decked with Christmas cheer this past weekend as brightly lit trees, along with decorated wreaths, greeted all those who entered.

The Forest of Hope event, which raised around $17,000, was centered around Christmas and created to support— as well as expand — the rescue mission’s services which are provided to the homeless. 

The sight and the sounds of the ‘50s came to life Oct. 31 as Place of Grace Campus hosted its first annual Fall Festival. The community began arriving around 6 p.m. dressed in their ‘50s best.

The festivities began at 6:30 p.m. and lasted until 8:30 p.m. A large homemade jukebox greeted everyone as they arrived dressed in poodle skirts, rolled-up blue jeans and leather jackets. 

It takes a special person who is willing to give up the comforts of normal everyday living to venture out into the missions field. 

One must become selfless in order to focus solely on the needs of others. 

Some know their calling in this field years before it takes place, but for Jason Harris it came suddenly. 

ROCKINGHAM - Tis the season to celebrate fall as the most refreshing time of the year. It not only brings cooler temperatures along with colorful changing of leaves, but it also brings many anticipated fall festivals. On that note, there will be an exciting and unique event of that nature on Wednesday October 31, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the campus of Place of Grace.
