In a ceremony Thursday afternoon, community members presented Georgia Southern University with a bronze bust cast in the likeness of legendary coach Erskine "Erk" Russell. Longtime friends of Coach Russell dedicated the bust with comments on his extraordinary coaching career and personal attributes.

Think of God by Larry Sheehy

The murder of Matthew Shepherd, beaten to death, apparently, because of his openly-professed homosexuality - virtually no one has offered a defense of this terrible crime. No doubt some do condone such, but not with God's approval. Murder, and the hatred that leads to it, are condemned soundly, in no uncertain terms, in both Old and New Testaments.
