New beginnings mark events at Unity Church

It is a week of new beginnings at Unity Church of the Cumberlands. For more than 10 years, the Rev. Teny Rule Fisher and her husband Charles have been a vital part of Unity's growth. The past year found the Rev. Teny Fisher becoming ordained while she served as interim minister. During this time, Fisher also built a traveling ministry centered in Truth Principles and prosperity consciousness known as the Practical Christian Ministry. For more information, a Web site is under construction at Bookmark it and check back often for times and locations.

She and Charles soon will be leaving to take the Practical Christian Ministry on the road, a ministry which Charles will no doubt support with the same faithfulness shown at Unity Church of the Cumberlands for the past many years. Having served as everything from chief financial officer to sound engineer to plumber when the need arose, Charles Fisher has been a vital part of our growth. Unity is grateful, thankful, and blessed to have had the Fishers as part of their church family for so long.

At the same time, Unity is equally grateful, thankful and blessed to be welcoming a new senior minister, the Rev. Bruce Kellogg, and his wife, Jennifer Molton, into its midst. Prior to accepting the call to serve at Unity Church of the Cumberlands, Kellogg served as the pastoral care minister at Christ Unity Church in Sacramento, CA. Most recently he served as a prayer associate for Silent Unity, Unity's powerful, non-denominational, worldwide prayer ministry based in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Before entering the ministry, Kellogg had a history of service to others. As a young man he served in the U.S. Coast Guard. Following the Coast Guard he worked in the physical therapy department at a San Diego, CA, hospital. Later he was led to a career as a social worker and spent many years working with child protective services for the state of Arizona before being called into ministry. It is a call we are so glad he accepted.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
