Vince Gill looks hate in the face


CFN

Gazette staff
Sometimes, people surprise you (in a good way). We here at CFN were more than pleasantly surprised last week when we ran across a video of one of Oklahoma’s world-famous country crooners (and Northwest Classen High School grad — go mighty Knights!), Vince Gill, giving those jerks at Westboro Baptist Church the what-haveyou. On Sept. 8, Westboro members set up outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo., where Gill was set to perform.

Glorious resurrection

Local attorney restores Calvary Baptist Church and turns it into the home of his business while keeping its civil rights history intact.


News

Tim Farley
But that was more than half a century ago, when the church was a key part of the Oklahoma City black community and the civil rights movement. There, King preached a sermon as an audition to be the church’s full-time pastor. Ironically, church leaders thought King was too young to lead a congregation of that size.

Now with more Jesus


CFN

Gazette staff
The South is famous for many things — beer, guns, sweet tea, big hairstyles and a fervent love for the baby Jesus among them. But LifeWay Christian Resources, which supplies study materials and ministry resources to the Southern Baptist Convention, believes it could use just a little more Jesus.
