  • From our readers - SCES students impress during Rep. Guthrie visit

    My wife, Lynn, and I were looking forward to accompanying Congressman Guthrie on his visit with the 5th grade class at Spencer County Elementary School last Thursday. Congressman Guthrie would be speaking with the class about the origins of our government, the separation of powers and then a question and answer session. But first, two pupils conducted a tour of the school for the Congressman and they did a first class job.

  • All the difference

    Easter is coming in just a few days; bunnies and eggs and Easter baskets everywhere, Easter egg hunts and new clothes and even a few family gatherings.  Those things are great, but aren’t really what Easter is about.

  • I give up

    Did you ever submit an application for a job?  You know, you fill out the form with all your information and then hope they give you the job.  I’ve done that several times in my life, some of those jobs I got, some I didn’t.

    Another thing I remember is that at some point in time I quit those jobs.  I submitted an application, worked there for a while and then moved on to something else.  Most of us have done that from time to time.

  • Running ragged?

    Do you ever feel like the wind in your sails is just gone?  Like the pep in your step has disappeared?  Like all you can do is just barely make it through the next minute without collapsing?

  • Long term living

    Not long ago on a mission trip, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks.  They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes.  Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.  They were experiencing a lot of pain just to gain some temporary happiness and acceptance.

  • In like a lion...out like a lamb

    The old saying, “In like a lion…” has held true so far for the month of March. It seems that in the first couple of weeks we have seen many facing troubled times, for some, the worst times of their lives. The truth is that some, even in our own church, are struggling in different ways that many of you are not aware of.

    We each have different ways of dealing with struggle, in whatever form it takes. Some share their struggles, while others hold in and seemingly walk around as if everything is great.
