  • ‘Cats advance to ‘Blue Orleans’

    Coach John Calipari might not have wanted revenge to be a motivating factor for his team and said after the game that they never discussed it.  But the blue clad Kentucky fans that filled the Georgia Dome in Atlanta March 23 definitely had it on their mind.

    Terrence Jones got the scoring started with a three pointer and jumper, quickly surpassing his forgettable performance in the first meeting this season.  The fast paced end to end action was only stopped by the quick, and at times questionable, whistles of the officials.

  • 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.

  • Helping Out People Everywhere

    When Kim Haubner of Dry Ridge was sitting by her father’s bedside as he spent his last days battling cancer, she thought about people needing a little hope, especially when they were facing life’s trials.

    “It just kept gnawing at me and I knew I had to do something,” said the woman, known for helping out family and friends.

  • We were made to be ‘Courageous’

    I have allowed God back into my life and I couldn’t be any happier.
    With giving my life to God, I have developed a closer relationship to my fiancé, Jessica Purnell and Jesus Christ.
     

    Jessica and I went to Williamstown Christian Church, March 16, for the movie, “Courageous”, a film about five men making a resolution to be better fathers in their home, teaching the Word of God to their families.

    It is an inspirational film that tests you even if you are not a father, if you are living what God has planned for you.
