  • Seniors attend Baccalaureate

     

    More than 40 seniors from Spencer County High School gathered at Spencer Christian Church Sunday night for the 2016 Baccalaureate Service. They were challenged and encouraged through song and through speeches as they prepare to complete their high school graduation and move on to college or careers.

  • Churches unite for meal ministry

    Five local churches will be collaborating this summer to make sure no one in Spencer County goes hungry. Every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 p.m., members of those churches will be serving a meal for free to anyone who comes.

    The first meal is scheduled for May 31.

    The ministry, called “Summer Supper Together,” will be held at Taylorsville Community Church, 404 Garrard St. It will run through Aug. 9.

    The meal will be followed by a short devotional and a time of prayer for any needs attendees may have.

  • What’s in a name?

    The other day I ran across an interesting article about colors and how we see them. It seems that there is some question whether we can really see colors if we don’t have a name for them.

    I’ve always wondered about this, because I’ve noticed that my wife often calls one blouse “eggplant” and another “maroon.” To me, they are both just purple–one a little darker maybe, but still just purple.

    VBS at First Baptist of Taylorsville

  • Learning the joy of work

    I know a lot of people that love to mow the grass. I must admit I am not one of them. I don’t know why, but for me it is always a chore and not one I particularly enjoy.

    On the other hand, I do enjoy the look and the smell of fresh mown grass. The other day, after mowing, I took a break for a few minutes and then stepped out onto our porch. The smell of the freshly mown grass was in the air, and I simply enjoyed the moment.

    National Day of Prayer May 5

    The community is invited to gather at the Spencer County Courthouse steps at noon on Thursday, May 5, for the National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is “Wake Up America” and the key verse is taken from Isaiah 58:1, “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.” The verse is a reminder to those gathering that prayer is a force for good in the nation. In case of inclement weather, the prayer will be held at First Baptist Church on Main Street.

  • A sock and a shoe

    We all have our routines; the way we do things. One morning not long ago, I realized I am a sock and a shoe kind of guy. Where some people put on both socks, then grab their shoes, I put on a sock and a shoe, then I put on the other sock and shoe.
