• Youth learn compassion after night of homelessness


    There’s a group of young people in Spencer County whose compassion has been strengthened with first-hand experience when it comes to understanding and helping the homeless.

    The youth at All Saints Catholic Church this past Saturday night participated in the first All Saints Cardboard Charity Campout, and while the name may suggest a fun time, the aim was serious and the conditions Friday night ensured lasting lessons were learned.

  • When we’re weak, He is strong

    Do you ever feel weak?  I don’t mean physically weak, though I am sure that happens sometimes.  No, I mean a kind of deep weakness that steals into your heart and life.  The kind of weakness that makes everything an effort.  The kind of weakness that might be called depression or exhaustion.  The kind of weakness that robs color from your day and paints everything in shades of grey.

  • A thirst for the Word

    Recently, my daughter spent three days in Kosair Children’s Hospital. The issue was severe dehydration. The nurses kept giving her bags of fluids, and liquids to drink to help her body replenish what fluids she had lost. As I watched and prayed over her, God reminded me of the story of the woman at the well who spoke with Jesus. This is a profound story because what I realized is that at times … I am severely dehydrated, but not from lack of fluids. I become spiritually dehydrated.

  • The danger of just one little hole

    I have holey shoes.  Not Holy, as in sanctified or Godly shoes, just shoes with a hole in them. I found the hole in my shoes one day last week when I was walking my dog Molly.  Now Molly doesn’t care about the weather.  Rain or shine, she wants her walk at least twice a day.  So one day it was pouring rain, I put on a coat and hat, grabbed my umbrella and off we went.

  • The Living Water

    I drink a lot of water: I like water. Drinking water usually saves a couple of bucks at restaurants, so maybe I’m just cheap, but I really do actually like water. Do you remember when water only came out of the faucet? When I was a kid, no one ever thought about buying water at the grocery store.

  • Bible’s truths can be uncomfortable

    Did you ever watch shows like “America’s Funniest Home Videos?” We used to watch it a lot, just because it is funny, lighthearted, and our granddaughter would laugh her head off. I still watch it when I get a chance.

  • Was U of L running with the devil?

    The University of Louisville men’s basketball team’s self-imposed ban on post-season play has rocked their season and drawn the ire of Coach Rick Pitino who argues that heavy fines should be levied on coaches, the school—anybody but his ballplayers. It’s a compelling argument from U of L’s motivator-in-chief. But this is the second time Pitino has skirted around a sex scandal and his credibility is wearing thin as he claims to not have known about it.
