  • All of us face the passing of time every day.  Sometimes it seems to fly by, and at other times it seems to drag.  Sometimes we can’t wait for some big event, and other times we wait in fearful anticipation.  But either way, there is one truth we must all face, our time is limited.  We have 24 hours in a day, seven days in a week, 52 weeks in a year, but we don’t know if we have tomorrow.

  • Mark 4:2-8 – And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

  • With graduation from the University of Kentucky quickly approaching, I was faced with a decision. Should I hop right into the job market, or should I take some time to investigate other things that I had aspired to do? I chose to delay the job search and instead apply for an unpaid internship in Washington D.C. with U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie. I’m glad I did. The experience was outstanding.

  • This is another article on backsliding. We see Paul writing to the church at Corinth.

    2 Corinthians 1:1– Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all saints which are in all Achaia.

    As we look at Paul writing to the church about what he was expecting to find. Because this was going to be his third visit there.

  • You just never know where interesting Spencer County history may be found. For instance, on the Kentucky Baptist Histories Baptist History Homepage appears the “Year Book of Little Union Baptist Church Fairfield, Ky.

    Since Spencer County wasn’t formed until 1824, the church was in Nelson County when it was formed in 1811. Here’s the  item from the Nelson County Library:
