Farewell and See You Soon

A Note from Cori & Jim Phelps

A joyful Merry Christmas to you, as you prepare to celebrate our Savior’s birth this month! And in addition to reflecting on what a gift you all are to us, we have some big news about Covenant Spotlight. Praying you’ll continue on the journey as this publication moves forward into a new season.

For those who don’t know us personally, we were blessed with ownership from Keith and Christy Boutte, the founders, in January 2017. The things we have been able to share since then are precious to us, and we know they have blessed, inspired, saved and guided folks to Him—we couldn’t ask for more!

Now, as I, Cori, enter my last semester of law school in January, and Jim transitions to full time journalism, it’s time for us to pass the reins to a new owner who is led to give CSM the reboot it needs. After praying for a successor, God answered and starting January 2022, Christian Lewis will lead CSM. Give him a little time and watch for all the publication will offer in the new year!

 

To our mighty team—Tiffany Wyatt, Geneva Andrepont and Julie Hasling—you ladies have taught me (Cori) so much, and your talents and commitment to this publication are a tremendous gift to our community! To the Bouttes—without your faithfulness to His call, CSM would not exist and you both are a huge blessing! To all our writers, past and present volunteers, advertisers, and distribution locations—the giving of your time, words, finances, and locations have made sharing His Word, love, hope and light in Acadiana possible, and for that we are forever grateful.  

Thank you Acadiana, for the last nearly 5 years of your support—this is not goodbye, just farewell for now! See you out in the community!   

 

After singing Psalm 100 acapella, the gathering entered a variety of vehicles, some with Christian flags flying, and some with trailers, for a parade through town to South City Park for a picnic and games.   

Jeff Cook attended the celebration and parade with Rachel, his wife, and their three children.  Cook explained his reasons for doing so, “It’s a great thing to celebrate.  We’ve been talking to our kids their whole lives about this.  To see the overturning of the greatest sin of our land come down, I wanted our kids to see that this is a special moment.  To celebrate with our church family made it even better.”  After the parade, Cook chuckled at his children’s enthusiastic question, “‘Are we going to do this every year?’ I said, ‘Lord willing, I hope so.’ I think it would be great to see this grow every year.”
