  • Love My Neighbor opens

     

    The Chamber of Commerce helped Love My Neighbor celebrate the grand opening of their new store on Garrard Street Saturday morning. The ministry, which provides free or low cost clothes and household goods, operates on donations and is staffed by volunteers. The new facility is more than twice the size of their existing building, and they were able to use volunteer labor to open their doors debt-free.

  • Life happens

    Life happens to everybody.  The good, the bad, and the indifferent happen all the time.  Sometimes we plan a vacation and it turns out perfectly.  Or, we go see a movie and it is as good as we hoped.  Or, just sitting around talking to friends and family and you laugh until you cry.  Good times come and go.

  • Reading our heavenly blueprint

    I recently spent an afternoon with a young man as he was sharing about his search for personal direction. In his attempt to discover what type of life God wants for him, he’s hoping that he will eventually find happiness and contentment. I truly respect anyone (especially a teenager) that is trying to do the right thing and willing to invest the time it takes to search until they find it.

  • Be children of light

    The other day, I watched a little boy, maybe 10 or 11 years old, walking out to his mom’s car.  Walking is really not what he was doing, he was literally skipping.  I was talking to his mother, so I know he wasn’t going anywhere particularly exciting, but he had a real spring in his step.  That little man was enjoying life, even the simple act of walking to the car was an exercise in joy.

  • Fields of Faith

     

    Several hundreds students, parents and others from the community showed up at the high school football field Wednesday night for the Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s Field of Faith event. It was a night of worship, testimony and speaking that’s a national event, as schools across the country took part. This was the fourth year Spencer County has participated.
     

     

  • The power of positive thinking

    When we talk about life being filled with possibilities, we usually imagine someone stepping into our situation and helping us achieve our goals. It’s easy to fall into the habit of hoping that another person will provide what we need or figure out the solutions to our problems. True, there are times when we can depend on the generosity of others but God has given each of us a sound mind and unlimited potential if we can only learn how to activate these internal resources.
