Column: We need God-dominated preaching

By Chipley Thornton Special to The Tribune Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was a medical doctor-turned-preacher in England in the mid-1900’s. England’s churches were flailing. God used this man to spark a great revival. The spark He used to ignite that revival was “God-dominated preaching.” What is God-dominated preaching? Lloyd-Jones said it was preaching that focused on exalting the God of Scripture. He identified ...

Column: Forgive us our trespasses

By Michael J. Brooks Special to The Tribune I’ve known a few pastors over the years who seemed to generate conflict, even taking it as a sign of faithfulness to God. Such as the pastor who fired the choir. There was some intrigue going on in music ministry, and he simply announced from the pulpit that the choir was toast. I’m unaware of efforts he might have made previously to reconcile, but I always though ...

Column: Tuscaloosa well represented in government

By Steve Flowers Special to The Tribune Awhile back, during Dr. Robert Bentley’s tenure as governor, I wrote a column entitled, “They May as Well Move the Capitol to Tuscaloosa.” Never before in Alabama history has a city had a sitting governor and the state’s senior U.S. Senator hail from that particular place.

Column: Watch my back

By Michael J. Brooks Special to The Tribune It was like Christmas all over again when I decided to reorganize my clothes closet. I found a warm jacket I’d forgotten about, and it’s been comfortable in these frigid days. And I found a suit I’d not worn in some time—a three button suit that looked nice. I wore it to church on Christmas Eve and felt good about myself. A nice lady asked if I was wearing a new s ...

By Steve Flowers Special to The Tribune A few months back the Jefferson County Republican Party honored our Senior U.S. Senator, Richard Shelby. It was held at The Club in Birmingham.  The view from atop Red Mountain from this elegant club is spectacular, especially at night from the ballroom.  The glass enclosure allows you to see the grandeur of the Birmingham skyline.

Column: Out with the old, in with the new

By June Mathews Special to The Tribune Whew, I made it! Another holiday season has come and gone, and once again, I managed to keep my wits about me and maintain some of my scant supply of sanity. The few Christmas decorations I pulled out this year are repacked and back on their designated shelves in the basement; my bank account, though somewhat depleted, is at least not overdrawn; and all the relatives I ...

Column: A look back at the 2017 Special Election

By Steve Flowers Special to The Tribune As we enter the 2018 campaign season, many of you have asked me to look back and analyze the 2017 Special Election Senate race and explain in depth what happened and why. The most asked question is how could a Democrat win a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama and does this mean that we are now possibly a two-party state? I will give you numerous answers, however, the simple ...

Column: Time for resolutions

By Michael J. Brooks Special to The Tribune It was a moment of levity on an altogether sad day. We buried a wonderful Christian man several months ago. His death was premature in our judgment, and we were heartbroken to lose him. The family elected to return to our church for a meal after we left the cemetery, and the nice ladies in the church had everything ready for us. While we were eating, the area dire ...
