New Year's Day film
Bob Jones University's motion picture "Sheffey" is scheduled for a showing in Seaford. This feature film will be shown on Sunday, Jan. 1, at 6 p.m., in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church of Seaford. "Sheffey," a screenplay written by Tim Rogers, is based on the book "The Saint of the Wilderness," by Jess Carr. "Sheffey" deals with the life of an itinerant preacher, Robert Sayers Sheffey. For much of the 1800s, Sheffey ministered to the mountain folk of the Virginias, Carolinas, and parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. Convinced that men needed to be shown the love of God, Sheffey rode the mountains and hollows to spread the light of the Gospel. Produced and directed by Katherine Stenholm, this film won the silver medallion award at the annual film competition conducted by the International Film and Television Festival of New York. For information call (302) 629-7161.
