  • God never disappoints

    By John Rohr

    Do you ever really look forward to something only to have it disappoint you? For instance, I love going to the movies, but sometimes the movie doesn’t match my expectations.

  • Value of hard work

    Usually we associate hard work with sweat on the brow and perhaps aching muscles, and there is certainly a lot of that to be done.  There are houses to be built, crops to be planted and harvested, there are roads to be repaired, cars to be built - you know what I mean.

    There are other people that work hard every day who never break a sweat. They work in offices or in stores; they sell insurance or help us buy houses. Some of these folks work long hours in front of a computer screen or talking on the phone or, well, maybe even teaching in our local schools.

  • Hiding behind the curtain

    One of my favorite movies is the Wizard of Oz. I remember watching on a black and white TV (Do they even make those anymore?). I never realized until years later that Oz was in color.And the horse of a different color really does change colors.

  • 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.
