  • A stinging election

    Remember when you were a kid going to the doctor and he said, “This might sting a little.”  You know no matter what, that needle was going to hurt.  Right shoulder, left shoulder, or some other spot, that big, shiny needle was going to sting a Lot!  Nowadays, I can get a shot without flinching,. Most people can, but I don’t know anyone that enjoys it.  It is just one of those things we have to endure for our health.

  • Grace Chapel honors pastor

     

    The congregation at Grace Chapel Church of God of Prophecy recently held a Pastor’s Appreciation event in honor of Rev. Dave and Diana Hutch. The congregation cited the couple’s skill in music, counseling and compassion, and for encouraging children, youth and ministries of all ages at the church.

  • Love My Neighbor chili supper fundraiser

     

    A chili supper fundraiser was held Saturday for Love My Neighbor’s new facility on Garrard Street. The ministry has been closed for nearly a year as construction continues, and organizers said there’s a possibility it may be open for business by Christmas. They said they are most grateful for the volunteers and donations that have allowed the ministry to be debt-free with this new construction, which gives them significantly more room than their previous location. At least seven local churches have been actively involved in the ministry.

  • When the light shines

    The other morning I was walking my dog out of the neighborhood.  It was a cool morning and the sun was hidden behind a hill.  We suddenly walked out from behind the hill and the chilly morning was no longer chilly.  I could feel the heat of the sun on my face and was struck by how much difference a ball of fire 93 million miles away can make.

  • The sounds of silence

    Do you remember silence? Those times when it would be so quiet that you could hear your own heart beating?  I remember as a little boy going out to my grandparents’ house in the country; it would be so quiet. Oh sure, there were the little sounds like the chirping of crickets or the creak of the house cooling in the evening, but they were such soft sounds.
