  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Shedding light

    There is a common misconception going around that we have to go to church on Sunday morning.  I know that sounds like an odd thing for a pastor to say, but give me a minute to explain.

    We need each other.  After all God Himself created us to be in community together. I am not in any way saying that you do not need to meet together with other believers.  On Sunday morning the church should fellowship together.  On Sunday morning the church should worship together.  On Sunday morning the church should learn and grow together.

  • Western Ky gets bitter intro into D-I

    Did any team north of Lane Kiffin in Knoxville and south of Bill Lynch in Bloomington have a nightmare season to compare with Western Kentucky and Louisville?

    If football ‘09 in Bowling Green and Louisville had a color it would be blue. Fan blue(s), coach firing blue, bone bruise blue.

    At Western Kentucky. Imagine your beer-holding hand chained to railroad tracks and a freight train runs it over, then backs up, does it again, 68, 63 and 62 times.
