  • Spencer Christian to host community open house

  • This morning I was heading up the stairs and I tripped. I didn’t fall or anything, just stumbled a bit and put out my hand to catch myself on the steps ahead. It wasn’t a big deal, but it got me thinking.
    Most of us have probably stumbled on a step a time or two. In a crowd we may look around in embarrassment and give a little chuckle. But let’s be real, tripping up the steps, and falling down the steps are two very different things! Even if we fall up the steps, we don’t fall that far, and we just pick ourselves up and move on.

  • I was at an amazing conference last week in Chattanooga, Tennessee. One of the larger nondenominational children’s pastor’s conferences in the country. Why, as a senior pastor, would I be going to a children’s pastor’s conference? Well, there are several reasons. Other than having taught workshops there for many years in the past, I like to know what’s going on in the world of children’s ministry.

  • Brussels sprouts have made a comeback! It used to be that no one liked them and they were hard to come by fresh. Old varieties have been greatly improved from those forced on you as a child. Equally, updated cooking methods probably can stand some credit for elevating the previously mushy, bitter Barbie-doll-sized cabbage to a crispy, nutty treat!

    The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment’s Center for Crop Diversification, through the Barnhart Fund for Excellence, is sponsoring the series.

  • Wow, I can’t believe it! I happened to catch one of those “Get Cash Now” commercials. I wasn’t really paying attention but I glanced at the screen when that little disclaimer blurb flashed up. You know the one you can barely see and never have the time to read? Anyway, all I saw was 99.25 percent APR. You’ve got to be kidding!

  • God designed people to be in loving and peaceful relationship with him.

  • DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 95 now and take no medications. My primary-care doctor wants me to take aspirin, even just the baby aspirin, twice a week. Some of the supplements I take do have blood-thinning characteristics, and for that reason I am fighting the aspirin recommendation. In general, is it OK to refuse the recommendation of one’s doctor? -- F.V.

  • The more consumers do business online for the convenience, the more opportunities there are for scams to increase. Of all the places online to do business, your banking can be the most worrisome when it comes to safety. The FDIC has a comprehensive website that contains everything you need to know and the steps to take to keep your money safe.
