Episode 15 – Straight Lines From Crooked Sticks

“GOD uses crooked sticks to draw straight lines.” – Ignatius Loyola

Do you ever feel like you mess up too much? That GOD could never use someone like you? Maybe you are just a hot mess? Well, we have good news for you! Most of the “Heroes” of the Bible were hot messes as well. GOD continually uses messed up people to do great and wonderful things to bring glory to HIS name! And HE has a use and calling for you!

Episode 14 – Fun, Fear, Heroes: Salt Bowl 2018

Salt Bowl. Tradition. Benton. Bryant. High School Football. 38,000 people.

For a long time there has been a rivalry between two neighboring cities. Benton and Bryant; cities separated by just a few miles. The rivalry goes across all sports but the biggest game every year is the Salt Bowl. A game between the High School Football teams. The Salt Bowl is played at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, so enough seating is available. Weeks of preparation and excitement, a day of tailgating and family fun. Even those who are not normally fans of football turn out for this great event. Through the first half an exciting game was playing out, and a wonderful halftime show by both schools was enjoyed by all.

Then came the third quarter: A fight broke out, not between the two schools, but with someone in the stands. Then the shout… “Gun!”
