SOPHIA — Seven fire departments and more than 45 firefighters responded to a structure fire in Sophia at Gospel Truth Lighthouse Church at approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday.
Sophia City Fire Chief Jeff Pittman said when his crew arrived, within 10 minutes — after making their way across slick, snow-covered roads — fire was already coming through the church’s roof. The structure was fully engulfed.

The Christian Resource Center will offer a new workshop starting in March. The workshop is on the subject of Christian apologetics and will be titled:"Developing a strong Christian Worldview."
Although clearly a pro-choice advocate, Kate Pickert in the January 14 Time Magazine cover story, “What Choice?” admits that “the pro-choice cause is in crisis.”
In the article, Pickert says there is a rebellion going on within the abortion rights cause, pitting younger feminists against the old-time leaders who were in their 20’s and 30’s when the battle began with Roe. But now, she says, these leaders are out of touch with the problem of state laws that curtail abortion while polls are showing abortion acceptance dwindling. The younger women want to take control of the fight, and believe they can do better than the old guard.
Pickert claims that this rebellion pitting feminists against feminists is tearing the movement apart at the very time state laws are eroding access to abortion, and that this power grab within the movement has come at a time when public opinion is turning against abortion. The elderly leadership, young pro-choice advocates say, cannot solicit young people to get involved in the battle to keep abortion legal. They think they can.
