Hughesville locals

By Staff | Apr 3, 2012

This week marks the holiest of weeks on the Christian calendar. Take advantage of the many services taking place. To mention a few: The Moreland Baptist Church will present the “Last Supper Drama” on Thursday, April 5 at 7 p.m. There are many other Maundy Thursday services that evening as well. Good Friday services will take place at Christ United Methodist Church in Hughesville from 12 noon 3 p.m. The seven last words and various choral selections will be presented. Trinity Lutheran Church will be holding a Tenebrae Worship service at 7 p.m. that evening as well. There will be a Sunrise Service on Easter Sunday at Mt. Zion beginning at 7 a.m., plus many other worship services throughout Hughesville in the morning.

Apparently many of life’s questions can be answered by the movie “Star Wars”. For instance, my son and his friend were having a discussion about the recent charges against the New Orleans Saints football team. They were questioning what a “bounty” was. Then they reasoned that it must be something you get paid to do because Boba Fett was hired by Darth Vader to find the Millennium Falcon, and Boba Fett was a bounty hunter. Good to know these kids can think things through!!
