Called to the Fire

In a timely chapel held this past Tuesday, February 19, we heard firsthand excerpts from the newly published book by alumnus Chet Bush: Called to the Fire: the story of Dr. Charles Johnson.  Rev. Johnson is the pastor of the Fitkin's Memorial Church of the Nazarene in Meridian, Mississippi.  An African-American, he came to Mississippi to pastor this church in 1961, to a state deeply mired in racial prejudice and injustice.  As a leader dedicated to helping the whole man, he not only pastored his flock but ministered in his community to promote civil rights for blacks.   Because of his association with three civil rights activists who were killed in Mississippi in 1964, he became the witness for the Federal Justice Department when the case was brought to trial 3 years later.  Rev. Johnson was called by God and has been faithfully led by Him to bring hope, redemption and transformation into his community.

This inspiring book is now available at Waggoner Library:  Called to the fire

President's Day!

While president's can't make it rain much less rain candy, our president's have many other responsibilities.  President's Day actually was set aside to celebrate the legacy of our first President, George Washington and our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, both born in February.   Waggoner has several books about our presidents for instance, Facts about the presidents includes information about Washington to Obama while the book entitled
My fellow Americans : the most important speeches of America's presidents, from George Washington to George W. Bush includes a CD where you can listen to the speech while reading its text.  There are many separate biographical works on many of our president's and first ladies as well.  We even have a book about presidents from the state of Tennessee - Tennessee's presidents by Frank B. Williams.
