Rethinking Some Things

Each week, this segment will offer a word of encouragement from pastors who lead churches in Bartow. This week's message is from the Rev. Jim Hatch, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Bartow.
I grew up in east central Mississippi on the border with Alabama. U.S. Highway 82 was the two lane highway through town.
I remember there were hand-lettered signs nailed to some trees along the road outside of town. One read, "Prepare to meet thy God!" Down the road apiece was another sign reading simply, "Repent!" The two obviously were meant to be connected, to form a cohesive message.
