  • “Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” (2 Timothy 4:2-5).

  • Sometimes we make things so difficult.  We take the simple and wrap it up in complicated explanations.  We use big words where little ones will do.  And as pastors, sometimes we’ll throw in a little Greek or Hebrew just for fun!
    This time of year we can see the simple truth of God’s plan for us very clearly.  It is simply written in the difference between Friday and Sunday.  It is just a little difference that makes all the difference in the world.

  • Sarah Fauber of Riversong Farm taught an SOS class on Becoming Gluten Free on April 9. There were eight attendees.
    Shannon Depew, who has lived in Spencer County 7 1/2 years, attended the class to learn more about gluten free eating because she and her daughter have milk allergies. Even though they are doing much better, she suspects a wheat allergy also.

  • It is one of Bloomfield’s more significant stories.
    It’s the intriguing tale of Jereboam Beauchamp and Ann Cook who are buried in each other’s arms in the Maple Grove Cemetery.

  • University of Kentucky plant pathologists recently discovered a metabolite that plays a critical role early on in the ability of plants, animals, humans and one-celled microorganisms to fend off a wide range of pathogens at the cellular level, which is known as systemic immunity. This mode of resistance has been known for more than 100 years, but the key events that stimulate that resistance have remained a mystery.

  • Every year I write about mulch, but no ones seems to care. Mounds of mulch still choke the trunks of trees everywhere you look this time of the year. Trees in landscapes look like telephone poles sticking out of soon to be crusted over black mulch.
    How’s that for a foreboding tale?
    Here’s the message, too much mulch is a bad thing. I know, some people have been liberated, but we still have more work to do.
    The bottom line: 2 inches of coarse mulch that is not piled around the trunk of the tree or shrub is the desired goal.
