    Elaine Koch of Taylorsville recently received an award for her service through the Southern Baptist and Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief ministry.
    The awards were presented last Tuesday in Des Moines, Iowa, as part of the annual Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Roundtable.
    A member of Redemption Hill Baptist Church in Fisherville, Koch received the Joel W. Phillips Outstanding Achievement Award.
    Two outstanding achievement awards are presented annually from among nominees across the country.

  • COLUMN: Trust Jesus ‘in every area of your life’

    Somebody suggested that I needed to do an off the wall column today. I’m not sure exactly what that means, but it got me to thinking about the clichés and expressions we hear all the time. For example, “off the wall,” or “think outside the box.”

  • COLUMN: Controlling the tongue one of life’s biggest challenges

    This morning, I was thinking about how hard it was for me to control my tongue. Here are some of the troubles I have: many times I get started talking and don’t know when to stop. Many times I blurt in when someone else is talking and many times I have said something that did not come out the way I meant it to be, but if I tried to correct it it only got worse. This is just a few ways that I have mentioned losing control of my tongue and I am sure there are many more. I hope everyone does not have the same trouble controlling their tongue.

  • COLUMN: Jesus, a name above all names

    As we look at Paul when he wrote the Philippians, first let’s take a look at the condition he was in.
    Philippians 1:23-24 says, “For I am in a strait betwixt two having a desire to depart and to be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.”
    As we look at Paul even though he was a prisoner, he still held up the name of Jesus and wanted to see the Philippians do the same. In his writing to them, he always upheld the name of Jesus.

  • COLUMN: Sticker shock: Take care of those finances in a godly manner

    Today I was at the store and I noticed that a half-gallon of milk cost about $2.20, while a gallon cost about $2.90. Does that strike anyone as a little strange? Only 70 cents for that second half-gallon?
    But then again a couple of days ago I was buying some canned dog food. Now it is certainly easier to buy a shrink wrapped package of 6 or twelve cans, but then I looked at the price. For the same dog food, the individual cans were considerably LESS expensive per can. Does something seem wrong with that?

  • Praise an important part of a healthy relationship with God

    The Bible says that David was a man after God’s own heart. Therefore God anointed him King over all Israel. David never forgot that God put him in his position as king.

  • Listen to the Lord's little warning signs

    Just about the time our heads hit the pillows my wife said, “What was that?” At that point, I didn’t hear anything so we just laid back down. Sure enough, a few minutes later I heard something.
    A beeping sound echoed through our house. But it was hard to track down. I checked the bedrooms and bathrooms, the living room and the kitchen; I checked the laundry room, nothing. I went downstairs to my office, nothing. I went to the garage, nothing. It seemed to be coming from everywhere at once, but nowhere in particular.

  • COLUMN: America has taken turn for the worse

    Our country has gotten so evil sometimes one has to wonder how long God will wait before he burns the whole world up. God has blessed us so and we are supposed to be the nation who is a witness for God to the other nations. I’m afraid we have become a bad witness.
    Our Supreme Court ruled a 2,700-page Health Care bill was constitutional; 39 years ago, our Supreme Court ruled that abortion was constitutional and last year three churches in Louisville got together and celebrated the 38th anniversary of this event.
