  • WRMPIC tours White Rock library site


    The new White Rock Library is nothing more than an under slab at this point, but that did not dampen the enthusiasm of the White Rock Master Plan Implementation Committee as they toured it on Thursday. 

    Crews have spent the last several months moving utility lines, preparing the ground and laying the under slab for the building. 

     “This is the part of the project where everything’s horizontal, and it’s frustrating to everybody, including me. I always come up here and wish I would see something vertical,” said Jori Smith, project manager for contractor Bradbury Stamm.

  • Bible Answers: Explaining who Apostle the Paul was

    “Who was the Apostle Paul?” — Barbara  

    Readers of the New Testament often quote this man, for which there is good reason.  Thirteen of his letters written to first-century churches and Christians comprise almost half of the New Testament.
    We have glimpses of Paul’s story scattered throughout his writings. He was a Jew from the Asia Minor city of Tarsus (Acts 9:11; 22:3). Because of his Roman parentage, he was a citizen of the empire (Acts 22:25) and well educated.
    Devout in his faith, Paul zealously persecuted the new sect devoted to Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 8:1-3; Gal. 1:13-14). This sect, first called “Christian” in Antioch (Acts 11:26), was winning many converts and posed a threat to Jewish stability and way of life (Acts 4:1-7; 5:17, 33-40; 17:5-8).
    Paul never tired of describing his conversion to faith in Christ. Three accounts of his experience appear in the book of Acts alone (9:3ff; 22:6ff; 26:13ff). Following a dramatic personal encounter with the risen Jesus, Paul did an about face and became an ardent evangelist and church planter. Much of his ministry consisted of strengthening and encouraging the churches with which he was associated (Acts 14:22; 15:32, 41; 16:3; passim).  His letters contain both theological teaching and ethical instruction.
