Nash Health honors chaplains at annual banquet

Almost everyone has heard of the evangelist Billy Graham, but very few have heard of Pearl Good. Good faithfully followed Graham’s crusades across the country---at her own expense—and prayed for the event. For decades, no one affiliated with the Graham evangelistic team was aware of her silent, yet powerful, contributions to the ministry.
This same philosophy of unselfish faithfulness could easily apply to the chaplains at Nash Health Care.

Thankful for all that is right here at home

Recently, I was heading towards the back door of The Graphic office, while at the same time, Lozen Pittman of My Sister’s House was stepping out of her car that was parked nearby.

At first I saw nothing. I walked towards her wondering what she could see  that I could not. She then began speaking of how beautiful it was –– referring to this thing that I could not see!
