  • After Easter, what if?

    The eggs have been found, the bunny has moved on to other things.

    The lilies have left the sanctuary; the cross will be put back in the foyer of the church. The Friday fish fries are done for the year. The pastel ties will go back into the closet. The news magazines will get back to everyday politics and world news. Easter is over.

    We have a tendency to get through holidays and just move on to the next one. We will begin seeing all the summer items in the stores and soon all the patriotic products ready for the next major holiday.

  • Crittenden Christian meets growing demands

    “Crittenden Christian Church – a community of hope and healing,” are the words that adorn a banner at the front of the historical frame structure on U.S. 25 in the heart of Crittenden.

    That’s a mission the small congregation is focused on and could be the reason they’ve begun to experience growth and the need for more space.

    “By faith, this congregation stepped out and said let’s build,” said Pastor Jerry Zehr.

  • Dry Ridge Presbyterian hosts community service

    Dry Ridge Presbyterian Church, 15 Warsaw Avenue, will host a community worship service at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5.

    Crittenden Christian Church and Dry Ridge Christian Church members will also be a part of this service.

    “Because of the strong community support of a Christmas Candlelight Service based on scripture and song, it was decided to have a Tenebrae Service, which includes the passion narrative from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John amid decreasing candlelight,” said Julie Donahue, music director at Dry Ridge Presbyterian Church.

  • A ‘tongue fasting’ for Lent

    I like the Book of James. He doesn’t beat around the bush. Like in Chapter 3, when James is teaching us about “a small member” of our body that is “a restless evil, full of deadly poison.” He is referring to our tongue, of course.

    We are all guilty. I know I can hardly get through a day without saying a harsh word to or about someone. And have you ever just stopped to listen to the conversations around us – among friends and neighbors … and yes -- church members. It seems James knew us well.

  • Dry Ridge pastor found calling at an early age

    Daniel Wilson found his calling when he was 6-years-old.

    “I was saved at an young age,” he said. “I just knew at that moment I was going to be a pastor.”

    Wilson, 30, has been the minister at Dry Ridge Baptist Church for four months, after serving in the evangelism office of the Alabama Baptist State Convention (ABSC). He has been a Southern Baptist pastor for 10 years and has preached at churches in Alabama and Kentucky. He replaced Joseph Kitchens, who moved to preach in Alabama.
