Fair Grove’s forgotten child

Today marks the end of Black History month. Over the course of the last four weeks, millions of American students — from all ethnicities — took an in-depth look at the achievements of black Americans, pausing to contemplate the vital role of African Americans in U.S. history. However, in the midst of celebrating the lives and influence prominent African-Americans have had on today’s history, for many Southerners there lies the dark reality born from the human atrocities of the slave trade and the historical trauma slavery left on a nation where no town, not even Thomasville, was spared. In this article, master genealogist and Thomasville native Randy Hepler shares his own personal journey to uncovering the truth behind his distant ancestors' connection to slavery and to a child named Miranda, whose father was her mother’s master.

Our thoughts can keep us prisoners

We had a guest minister at our church on Sunday. The man is a friend of our pastor. He has spoken at our church before and always brings a thought-provoking message. This week was no exception, as ironically, his topic was: our thoughts. His message wasn’t simply that we have good thoughts and bad thoughts, but more about our responsibility for our thoughts.
