A frog croaking

Dear Editor,

To the people of Bamberg, there’s an old saying: Croak from your own pond. Well, this is what I am about to attempt to do. On October 7, 2012, the Church of God of Prophecy, where I am pastor, caught on fire from a ceiling fan. I just went by to cut on the AC when I smelled smoke and I realized the church was on fire.

My wife called 911 for the Bamberg Fire Department for assistance. Within 2 ½ to 3 minutes, the police and fire fighters were all over that fire with everything they had and the fire lost the battle! They were so professional and courteous. They put tarps across the pews and sound system to keep the water damage to a minimum.

No one could know how I felt when I realized this was happening to a church where I just became pastor for the first time. But, I do know what it sounds like when I heard the sirens coming from the police cars and fire trucks. It was just like in the old days, when the early settlers were being attacked by the Indians. Then, all of a sudden, you hear the Calvary coming, blowing their trumpets. It sounded like music to my ears.

If you are a frog in a pond and cannot croak from it, then you should find you another pond so you can croak. But for me, I’ll croak from mine here in good ole Bamberg. All of us at the Church of God of Prophecy will be praying for our young men and women who put their lives on the line to protect us from the evil of this world.

Pastor Clyde Bearden, Church of God of Prophecy, Bamberg

Excellent job, Advertizer-Herald

Dear Editor,

Again I write to thank The Advertizer-Herald for the excellent job it does in our community.

I appreciate so much Mr. Tribble’s column in the September 26th edition. He said what so many believe and yet dare not to say, “Elected Officials should serve God first and those who elected them secondly.”

My thanks to all of you on the Advertizer-Herald staff. I continually ask people to subscribe to your papers.

Betty Jane Miller, Barnwell
