Prayers for Healing for America: SGN Scoops Responds To Shooting In SC

Written by Staff on June 18, 2015 – 4:25 pm -

imageWe at SGN Scoops were horrified and saddened to hear of the shootings at the Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina, last evening. Most of us have at one time or another been a part of an intimate prayer meeting, calling out to God to hear and heal His people. To have that reverence disrupted by violence and gunfire from one taking part in the meeting is something out of a nightmare or a news clip from another place.

Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the victims of this tragedy. We pray that this church will find healing and comfort in the arms of a loving Savior who also weeps along with the hurting. We also pray for a community who once again is in the grips of racial tension. America is in need of prayers by strong, committed Christians who are willing to look beyond colour and creed to lift all their brothers and sisters to the Lord. America needs healing.

“If My People, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

Written by SGN Scoops on June 7, 2012 – 5:16 am -

Nashville, TN (June 4, 2012) – Ma Marcie “Eldrene” Spell Carter, mother of the Anchormen’s, Terry Carter, left this earthly life for her eternal home to be with Jesus her Savior on May 25, 2012 at the age of 76.
Surviving to cherish her memory is her best friend and devoted husband of 55 years, Otha James “Bigon” Carter; her loving sons, James Terry Carter as mentioned) and wife, Karen, and Glen Herring Carter and wife, Brenda; grandson, Jacob Carter; sisters, Olareas Holloway and Brenda Hall; brothers, A.E. Spell, Elbert Spell, Welton Spell and Tony Spell; step-brothers, Tolar Melvin, Burnice Melvin and Jerry Melvin and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mrs. Carter was a long-time faithful member of Northeast Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church as long as her health permitted.
Eldrene, as she was affectionately called by her family and friends, was a faithful, caring wife and a loving mother and grandmother. She found great joy in the simplest of things but her greatest joy was family. Being a people’s person, Eldrene never met a stranger and one was not in her presence long before you knew how proud she was of her “boys”. She enjoyed southern gospel singing, especially her favorite group, the Anchormen, and spending time with her grandson, who was the apple of her eye.
Being active in her church through the years, she was blessed with a love for the Lord and a faith that took her through an extended illness. Eldrene’s family is grateful to God for her life, for your friendship and for your kindness and prayers.
Send cards and condolences to Terry Carter , c/o The Anchormen, PO Box 2414, Asheboro, NC 27204.

Chuck Colson Dies at Age 80

Written by SGN Scoops on April 21, 2012 – 4:59 pm -

LANSDOWNE, Va., April 21, 2012—Evangelical Christianity lost one of its most eloquent and influential voices today with the death of Charles W. “Chuck” Colson. The Prison Fellowship and Colson Center for Christian Worldview founder died at 3:12 p.m. ET today at the age of 80. After a brief illness, Colson passed away at a Northern Virginia hospital with his wife, Patty, and family at his bedside.

On March 30, Colson became ill while speaking at a Colson Center for Christian Worldview conference in Lansdowne. The following morning he had surgery to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain, and doctors determined he had suffered an intracerebral hemorrhage. Though Colson remained in intensive care, doctors and family were optimistic for a recovery as he showed some signs of improvement. However, Tuesday (April 17) Colson became gravely ill when further complications developed.

A Watergate figure who emerged from the country’s worst political scandal, a vocal Christian leader and a champion for prison ministry, Colson spent the last years of his life in the dual role of leading Prison Fellowship, the world’s largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families, and the Colson Center, a research and training center focused on Christian worldview teaching.

Colson has been a central figure in the evangelical Christian community since he shocked the Washington establishment in 1973 by revealing his new Christian commitment in the midst of the Watergate inquiry. In later years Colson would say that because he was known primarily as Nixon’s “Hatchet Man,” the declaration that ” ‘I’ve been born again and given my life to Jesus Christ’ kept the political cartoonists of America clothed and fed for a solid month.” It also gave new visibility to the emerging movement of “born-again” Christians.
