  • The 2009 January ice storm knocked down limbs, electricity and phone service across Kentucky. The damage to trees was astounding, to say the least.
    Last week’s icy “situation” brought back the memory of those dread-filled days as we slowly tackled the clean-up effort at the farm. This year’s ice is not nearly as bad as 2009, but it sure left a mess in its wake.
    If you are among those with heavy damage, assess the situation with an eye toward safety.

  • In the Gospel of John chapter 8, Jesus said to those listening to him: “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
    With these words, Jesus teaches us that truth is the means to freedom.
    Truth is a very important part of Jesus’ teaching. He called himself the truth when he said, [John 14:6] “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
