18, 2000] My decision to visit
Second Baptist Church was not a very scientific one.I had never visited the congregation nor did I think I knew anyone there,
so I believed it would be interesting to meet with and worship with new friends.About all I knew was that Second Baptist was one of the African American
churches in Lincoln. The morning I spent at Second Baptist and a subsequent
interview with the Rev. Glenn Shelton, pastor of the congregation, allowed me to
move beyond academic knowledge of the African American church and allowed me to
see the living expression of faith by the family of believers in this church. It
is a church that is integrated in both flesh and spirit, in both body and soul.
My time there gave me a deeper understanding of the importance of this church
for all citizens and people of faith.

is available for those in need in Logan County.Lincoln
provides many of the services that are needed by its residents.Some services are offered by providers in Lincoln, others are contracted
with providers in neighboring towns, while still others are included under a
regional umbrella that includes several counties.One thing is clear: service is Lincoln’s business.

a saying at the local video store: “the fewer copies, the more likely it’s a
great film.” There was only one copy of this movie on the shelf, and in the
case of this flick, I found the adage to be true.
