  • I know that New Years day has passed, but every day is a new day, a new opportunity to re-imagine the future.  And it is always exciting to seek out God’s vision and plan for our lives and for His Church.  It is exciting to consider that even our greatest dreams are tiny compared to what God can really do.

  • As we look at the book of Acts we see Paul on trial for being a Christian. The first hearing was before Felix and then before Festus. The way I read it neither one of these wanted to hear him and when Paul appealed his case to stand at the judgement of Caesars Court where King Agrippa would hear him, as we look at this hearing we see Paul had no lawyer but represented himself.

  •  Abraham Lincoln had a connection to Spencer County that few people know about and although it may seem slight, we’ll take it.

    “Honest Abe” had a first cousin and second cousin in the county, who are buried in Saint Benedict Catholic Cemetery near Settler’s Trace Road.

    Margaret J. (Lincoln) O’Nan was his first cousin and Jane M. (O’Nan) Campbell was his second cousin. The All Saints Catholic Church in Taylorsville was originally Saint Benedict.

  • With Ol’ Man Winter bringing cold days and frosty nights to the state, the temptation to warm one’s toes at a wood stove’s blazing fire can be too much to resist. But according to the National Ag Safety Database, heating equipment is the No.1 cause of home fires. So safety precautions should be taken by those wishing to heat their homes with a wood stove.

  • 1 Corinthians 7:1-9 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

    They have placed in the top 10 and need help from the community to win.

  • I will never forget when I was ordained a minister.

    One of the questions was asked, “What causes splits in churches?”

    My answer was pride.

    You see after all, I am the greatest man sitting here. Now, you see that man sitting over in the corner, he doesn’t even know what he is doing and I doubt if he is a Christian.

    Of course you know I was just giving an illustration of what some may be thinking.

  • Spencer County and Taylorsville Elementary Schools saw a dance performance entitled, “Science in Motion”.  The two dancers, Dave and Sarah, are married and work for the New Performing Arts Company in Louisville.  They did a total of five performances that day.  Three performances were done at SCES and two at TES.  All students got to attend and learn how the laws of physics apply to our ability to perform a dance.  The dancers were very graceful and taught science through the art form of dance.  Sarah was a gymnast before becoming a ballerina and Da

  • In 2000, Universal Pictures released the live-action film “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” starring Jim Carrey based on the 1957 book by Dr. Seuss. But in this version, before the Whos down in Whoville are robbed by the Grinch on Christmas Eve night, little Cindy Lou Who realizes that the true meaning of Christmas has been lost already and becomes overwhelmed by the materialism that it has been replaced with.

  • Members of an all girls youth soccer team gathered on a recent Saturday to make a difference in the lives of others – with something as simple and comforting as a blanket.

    “Playing soccer is something that the girls will do for a short period of their lives.” said Phyllis Banks, head coach of the U-14 soccer team known as the Footie Chicks. “But being a responsible citizen that can make a difference is something the girls can do for the rest of their lives.”

  • Although the poinsettia Christmas tradition has roots in Mexican legend, Americans have associated poinsettias with the holiday for decades. Recently the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture joined a multi-state research project studying how to get the plant from the greenhouse to consumers in the best shape possible, with hopes that it may last awhile after buyers take it home.

  • I was in a church in Brooksville and in the middle of the service an older gentleman stopped me and said, “Mister can I ask you a question?”

     I said, “Sure, but I don’t know whether I can answer it or not.”

    The question was, “Why don’t preachers preach hell fire anymore.”

    I said, “Mine does.”

When the angel told Mary she was highly favored among women, she wondered what was going on. The angel told her to fear not because she had found favor with God. And behold thou shall conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son and shalt call his name Jesus. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there shall be no end. then Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
