I walked into the Clyde Church of Christ Friday to do a funeral for Jack Farmer with a sense of deja vu. It looked almost exactly like the church building my grandpa had built in Missouri. Same colors, same pews, same classrooms down the side, same baptistry, same track rack in the foyer. Since I didn't know Jack well, I had no idea how many people would come. But it was amazing. Probably 500 people crammed into that auditorium. They knew for whom the bell tolled. Jack and Betty had spent all 57 years of their married life in Eula, Texas on one piece of land. They moved once: ten feet. But for 57 years they raised their kids, nurtured their grandkids, loved and served their community. When you study church history, get read about people who preached sermons, wrote books, and had broad influence. But this is real church history, isn't it? One man (and woman) being the salt of the earth and the light of the world through quiet, faith-filled lives. - - - - There must be some marketing genius at ACU. The students get one day -- ONE DAY! -- off, and it's called "fall break." But by listening to students, you'd think that they had a whole week off. "I'm tired, but I'm just trying to make it to fall break." Are you kidding me? It's one day off! But, hey, if it works . . . . - - - - Come on, Astros. And congrats to the Cowboys on beating the Seahawks for 3.99 quarters. It's that .01 that'll get you, though.
