HO(ANSVn,LE HOME Nzws - THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2000 PAGE 7 for Support of Hummingbird Festival l!:dit(w: li" ('hairman of this year's ille Hummingbird l had a front row seat at est and best Festival in melnory. We raised over used for the restora- of the Royal Theatre. This not accomplished without Readers Respond copious amounts of hard work on the part of many, and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved. This Festival was built on a strong foundation. And that fotmdation was built by the time, energy and hard work of those responsible for all the previous Festivals. We would not have had any success without their effort. With respect to this year's Festival, those responsible are too numerous to mention. But I do want to thank the following Jeff Brown Endorses Bob Barr ditor: the same six years that served in the Georgia of Representatives Bob served in the US House n'esentatives representing District. I have found to be extremely knowledge- accessible to ITis con- and a very effective ressman. Further, he consis- votes as a Conservative to the size of government, our taxes, enhance free )rise, and increase person- onsibilities. It is for these reasons that I immediately accepted his request for me to be the Chairman Elected Officials for Barr. Congressman Bob Burr and 1 have worked very closely on sev eral issues; most notably, his efforts to change how the US Corps of Engineers manages West Point Lake. The goal is to increase the amount of water in West Point Lake on a year round basis. Great progress has been made and we are close to a dra matic change in their marmge ment practices. This progress would be seriously jeopardized if Congressman Burr is not re-elect-. ed. My wife, Shirley, and myself, admire Bob's wife, Jeri. She is a solid supporter of what Bob is try- ing to accomplish and regularly accompanies him on visits to the district. Congressman Barr's oppo- nent has never held an elected office and his residency in the Seventh District is recent and questionable. Most likely, he would be in the minority party if he were to be elected. Also, he believes in larger government, and therefore higher taxes, less personal responsibility, and a reduced role for free enterprise. Further, he would enter Congress with no seniority. For all of these reasons, I whoteheartedly and without reservation, endorse Bob Barr for re-election to the US Congress representing the Seventh District and I would ask you to do the same by turning out to vote on November 7th.

King David loved the Lord wanted to build a temple to Many times people dream wonderful things for but we must be sure it is God's will because He what is best. The prophet gave David disappoint- news concerning his plans. "Go and tell my servant 'This is what the Lord You are not the one to build a to dwell in.'" (1 17:4 NIV) GOD WAS REMINDING David that a house was not nec- essary because He was not lim- ited by space. He revealed to David that having David's son. Solomon, build the temple bet- ter served His plan. God madt: a more far-reaching promise to David. "I will set him over my house and my kingdom forever; his throne will be established for- ever." (1 Chronicles 17:14 N1V David trusted in God's promise and prayed to Him m gratitude. "0 Lord, you are God! You have promised these good ttiings to your servant. Now you Allen-I Church have been pleased to bless the . servant, that it O ,,ou, ,. C untrv Festival may contintte torever m your ** -- sight; for you, O lord, have Saturday, Nov. 4 blessed it, and it will be blessed forever." (I Chronicles 17:26-27 NIV) PEOPLE TODAY CAN trust God to keep His word. His prom- ise of a Messiah descended from David's family was fulfilled. David presents a model of how to respond to God's promises. Join us in Sunday School on November 5, in our study, enti- tled "An Everlasting Promise" as we learn how God remains true to His promises, to appre- ciate what He has done, and give all thanks and praise to Him.
