  • Lent...a time of remembrance

    Have you ever had your face painted? Did you get whiskers to make you look like a cat or a rainbow to make you look happy?  Do you remember the feeling you had as a small child on Halloween? When you could wear a mask and pretend to be someone or something magical? Ash Wednesday is drawing near and it is a time of year when Christians are invited to add something special to their face—actually, their forehead—to help them remember who they really are and what it means to follow Christ. We smear ashes on our foreheads to mark the beginning of the season of Lent.

  • Get to asking!

    I used to love to go to Sam’s club.  When I was going to school in Memphis, Tenn,  I would swing by and “visit” the store to look around and then make my rounds for the free samples and that would be my lunch (Hey! Don’t judge me. It was good eats and it was free!)

  • MAN ON A MISSION

    Earl Hampton began a journey on Feb. 1.
    Hampton started a 200 mile walk from Prestonsburg to Frankfort that will culminate for I Love Mountains Day on Feb. 14.


    The “I Love Mountains Day” is to raise awareness of the destruction caused by mountaintop removal for the purpose of mining for coal.
    Hampton, a minister at the Vineyard of Grant County, attended I Love Mountains Day in 2012 and thought about how he could get involved. He then signed up to receive an article from Kentuckians for the Commonwealth.

  • The rest of the story

    There is a part of the Christmas story at odds with hope, peace, joy and love of Christmas, a part that can’t be in the Christmas Pageant:  the part after the visit of the Magi.  

    Evil is woven into the tapestry of the Christmas story when Herod orders  “the slaughter of the innocents” (Mt. 2:16-17) and Matthew quotes the Prophet Jeremiah:  “A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children. And she will not be comforted, because they are no more.” (Mt. 2:18; Jer. 31:15).

  • Hope in Jesus

     

    In the first verse of the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, it says; “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” We must understand that God created our world and created man and woman in his image.  The fact that he is creator reminds us that he is in control of our lives and he is the one we must look to.
    In the first book of John, in the first verse, the same words are used,

  • Embrace not-perfectness for ‘happily ever after’

    One day at the library, a book fell off a shelf and hit a boy named Milo Crinkley on the head.
    The title, “Be A Perfect Person In Just Three Days,” was just what he needed.
