Amendment One says this:
Shall Article I, of the Constitution of Tennessee be amended by adding the following language as a new, appropriately designated section:
Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother.
For much more on the amendment, see here.

What a fun time was had by the kids of the Sunday School this evening at Jack and Pat’s place. Fun, games, food, and most importantly, great fellowship.
Tomorrow is Old Fashioned Day. Wear your period clothes and bring a covered dish and enjoy the fellowship, as many have in days past.
Mason Goodman has announced his resignation as the BEBA Director of Missions. The best DOM the association has ever had.
We’re thankful for his years of service and wish him the very best in his retirement.
Below are some photos from past Old Fashioned Days. Join us this coming Sunday for this year’s festivities. Old fashioned singing, preaching, and dinner on the grounds. Bring a covered dish and stay for lunch. And wear your bonnets ladies and your overalls men.
We had a wonderful service of ordination this evening. Here are some photos, thanks to Tracy L.
Do be sure to join us this evening at 7 for Greg Duncan’s ordination as a Deacon.
And the campaign by many churches to support a ‘yes’ vote on the measure. Lonnie Wilkey, the editor of the Baptist and Reflector, writes-
I received an interesting news release this week from the Yes on 1 organization in Tennessee. It certainly provides some food for thought.
For those who regularly read my blog and columns in the Baptist and Reflector, it is no secret that I wholeheartedly endorse the support of Yes on 1 which is an effort to educate Tennesseans about the need to vote for Amendment 1 which will appear on the state ballot on election day, Nov. 4. Amendment 1, if passed, can restore some common sense restrictions on abortion that are already in place in states surrounding Tennessee.
According to the news release, the group which opposes Yes on 1 is being funded primarily by eight abortion facilities in Tennessee and even out of state that have given the “No on 1″ organization $1.4 million of the $1.5 million they have received. According to their campaign disclosure, only 100 individuals have given more than $100 each.
If they are spending that kind of money it’s a pretty sure thing that they want to defeat the measure and continue to annihilate generations of unborn children.
Please remember Priscilla F.
