New conference coming to The Glade Church
Tuesday, September 3, 2013

In a culture that is becoming increasingly value-less, how does a person of faith live faithfully? 

EXILE: Living Faithfully in a Hostile World, a conference sponsored by The Glade Church, will seek to help answer that question. 

It will include two teaching sessions that directly engage cultural issues that people of faith regularly encounter. 

The Glade Church, located at 9000 Stewarts Ferry Pike in Mt. Juliet, is committed to enabling individuals to live their faith and express it in the context of the most difficult cultural situations.

EXILE: Living Faithfully in a Hostile World is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at The Glade Church in Mt. Juliet. 

The event includes two teaching sessions, followed by question and answer sessions. Refreshments will be served and activities provided for children (babies-3rd grade). 

Online registration for the event is available at thegladechurch.org.

The speaker for the event is Trevin Wax, an engaging communicator and author who has dealt with various cultural topics in his writings. 

Wax blogs weekly on his blog entitled Kingdom People. 

Wax recently contributed an article to the New York Times entitled Science, Too, Calls for a Leap of Faith. 

He has two books to be released in 2013, Clear Winter Nights: A Journey into Truth, Doubt, and What Comes After (Currently Available) and Gospel-Centered Teaching: Showing Christ in All the Scripture. (Available Oct. 1).

The Glade Church serves families in Wilson and the surrounding six counties.

Rep. Black visits with Chamber of Commerce
Tuesday, August 27, 2013

U.S. Representative Diane Black visited the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday, and gave those in attendance a quick rundown of what is going on in Washington. 

Black went over the U.S.’s debt problem, and a budget plan she has been working on with colleagues that would balance the budget in 10 years. It would raise the GDP one percent in 2014, which would be about $1,500 per household. It would raise the GDP by three percent over 10 years. 

Black said reforming the tax code is also a necessity. 

“Our tax code has not been reformed since 1986,” said Black. “It’s broken.”

Black said the best way to fix it is make it fairer and simpler. Right now it is too long and complicated. 

“It’s longer than The Bible with no good news,” Black joked. 

Black said repealing Obamacare will be important as well. She said it will add $6.2 trillion to the debt. She said the program as it is now is too damaged to fix, so they are going to have to start over with a new plan. 

Black also talked about illegal immigration. She thinks securing the border and fixing our legal immigration process are just a few of the steps we can take to eliminate the problem. 

 
‘Witness for the Prosecution’ coming to Encore Theatre
Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Witness for the Prosecution by Agatha Christie, Directed by Barbara S. Hartman, will open at Encore Theatre Friday Aug. 30.   

Only Agatha Christie could have conceived such a suspenseful thriller and then capped it with an uncanny triple flip ending. A young married man spends many evenings with a rich, old woman. 

When she is found murdered, the naïve young man is the chief suspect. The trial takes many turns; when the young man turns his back on his wife and goes off with another woman, we realize he was the murderer. He does not get away with it for there is one turn of the plot remaining.

The show opens Friday, Aug. 30,  and runs Aug. 31, Sept. 6, 7, 13, 14 at 7:30 p.m.; Sept. 8, 15 at 2:30 p.m.
