  • Be children of light

    The other day, I watched a little boy, maybe 10 or 11 years old, walking out to his mom’s car.  Walking is really not what he was doing, he was literally skipping.  I was talking to his mother, so I know he wasn’t going anywhere particularly exciting, but he had a real spring in his step.  That little man was enjoying life, even the simple act of walking to the car was an exercise in joy.

  • Fields of Faith


    Several hundreds students, parents and others from the community showed up at the high school football field Wednesday night for the Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s Field of Faith event. It was a night of worship, testimony and speaking that’s a national event, as schools across the country took part. This was the fourth year Spencer County has participated.

    His team is 2-7 on the the year and eliminated from playoff contention, but Spencer County Bears football coach Mike Marksbury prefers to focus on the positive coming off a 35-14 loss to Shelby County Friday night.

    “Our team really played their hearts out,” said Marksbury, following their fourth district loss. “We kind of hit rock bottom with our performance at North Oldham, and since then, our kids have rallied and shown a tremendous amount of character in the way they play.”

  • Fall colors are always there

    Fall color has been slowly bleeding into the tapestry of our landscape due to our little stretch of dry weather. It is a natural reaction for a plant to show signs of fall color early when it is under stress. In fact, we have some crabapples that are blooming because they have completely defoliated.  No leaves mean the sun’s warmth coaxes bud break and bloom at the wrong time of the year.
