    We held our Fall Church Institute at Shiloh this week. It was three good nights of Bible Study, worship, and dynamic preaching.

    Shelia Bailey taught our women. Lloyd Blue taught the men. And David Olford taught on Bible interpretation.

    Our keynote speaker, Ralph Douglas West, enriched us as he on several Gospel narratives that record powerful encounters with Christ. He called the series, “Have a Little Talk with Jesus.”
