"A sign on the window of Mosaic Church, 412 Market St., advertised a candlelight Christmas Eve service from midnight to 1 a.m. The Club Fathom event was billed online as a party, where no ID was required. One advertisement featured a busty woman in red lingerie and a Santa hat."
I'm still trying to figure this establishment out. So there is a Mosaic Church and a Club Fathom. Two separate places?
How in the whole history of Christianity could one possibly reconcile a so-called vigil service for Christmas with advertising as mentioned and this party atmosphere. There is no "vigil" and "party" together. Those words cannot go hand in hand. Shut this place down. St. Paul would have a field day!
Wow, I didn't know that about the finding of the icon in Calhoun. I love to see a good procession. We need more of those. I'm glad there are folks out there keeping it alive and well!
More industrial growth begets more future unemployment. What are the real statistics for Rhea County? Is this about the welfare of the stakeholders or the citizens?
Has anyone looked around Rhea County recently? It is predominately occupied by small landowners. For lasting employment and security, Rhea Co. should "look to land" instead of always wishing for a savior from the outside.
The county was built by agriculture and if it leaders and citizens thought long and hard it could rebuild in this fashion instead of always focusing on the myth of progress.
Congrats on the merger! I could only chuckle when Mr. Chambliss spoke on property management and who is capable of this. It seems as if few have really been passionate about fashioning Ref. Riding into something that it could really be.
This has resulted from a severely low work force and lack of vision. I hope this merger is a good step in the right direction because of all this "green" talk and the "eco"-types around these parts it is simply scandalous that a city of this size has no respectable Arboretum or Public Garden. May this merger be the beginning!
Lord help us. Christians are not to be cremated. That's for the pagans. How do ashes resurrect? The "green" method is actually the ancient Christian method, which, by the way, does not involve the inhumane embalming practice which is so common today.
Rhea County, return to your roots. Get off the couch and return to the land. Industrialism breeds unemployment. Wake up!
Consider the coal industry from the early 20th century. They had to rig an evolution/creationism battle to draw attention to themselves because even then citizens had placed their hope on outsider industrial interest and forgotten their traditions.
TVA also brought with it great "hope" and again and again we see the consequences, unsustainable development and limited numbers of private interests who profit.
God is in the wilderness...not in your cities and nuclear empires.
Well if we have to do things legally...At least in TN, an owner or "partial" owner can consume raw milk. Essentially, one would gather interested neighbors and sign them up as partial owners. No pasteurization!
City of Chattanooga: Do away with your bogus animal and livestock laws. Citizens, for heaven's sake, purchase a milking cow and raise your family on its milk if you have a bit of land.
Share with your neighbors. Practice this self-sufficiency and release yourself from retailers. Support local farmers.
Food costs will continue to rise. Corrupt bankers and wall street gamblers are purchasing farm land by the thousands of acres because the price of corn, wheat, etc. continues to rise. Yet, what are you eating? What are you consuming? Break away from junk and processed foods and take care of your body and family. Grow your own. Eat wholesome foods and have meals with family and friends.
Why is there so much fallow land in our area? Get up off the couch and dig in it. Stop relying on federal reserve notes to obtain goods.
Learn from the primitives who are satisfied with what has been given to them from their creator. Resist living beyond your means which leads to the worship of mammon.
