Annan to talk about faith, dealing with adversity

Disaster comes in all shapes and sizes. Bad things happen. And we have to deal with adversity. Haiti Partners co-director Kent Annan, who’s speaking this weekend in Oxford, has seen more than his share of adversity as he helps the people of Haiti. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at Annan’s work, including how he helps those in need ask and answer the tough questions about faith. (April 6, 2011, Page 4)

International Market to benefit many

After almost selling out last year, organizers of this year’s International Christmas Market at the First Presbyterian Church are offering a special premier party Friday night for those who pay a $5 entry fee.

Profits from the sale and Friday’s entry fee will be donated to Oxford Medical Ministries, which provides medical care to the working poor with no insurance

The merchandise being sold has all been created by artisans from countries around the world, including Peru, Vietnam, Bangladesh and India.

The market will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday in the Fellowship Hall at First Presbyterian on Van Buren Avenue. (October 7, 2010, Page 2)
