    CITY ON A HILL
    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.

  • There’s nothing better, in ANY season

    “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven.” — Ecclesiastes 3:1
    Today, I’d like to take a look at the different “seasons” we go through.
    A SEASON OF NEED
    Hebrews 4:16 tells us, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

  • Grace Notes

    If the Rev. Larry Silverman knew anything it was that “Jesus paid it all.”
    Larry was co-pastor with his wife, Corinne, at a little local church, New Covenant Grace Fellowship.
    He died a few weeks ago after a two-year battle with cancer in his mouth, jaw and throat.
    His family told me Larry respected me, but we didn’t always agree on theological issues.
    One particular point of difference: “sinner” -- past or present tense.

    CITY ON A HILL

  • “We All Scream for Ice Cream”

    Let me tell you something I enjoyed about the NCAA Basketball tournament besides the games, the commercials. I especially enjoyed the Capital One commercial featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee and Charles Barkley.
    In a 30-second commercial those three are sitting in a car together headed to the tournament site, San Antonio. Charles says he is excited to be able to visit the “A La Mode”. Jackson corrects him by saying, “Charles, it is Alamo.”

    Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.
    It happened on that Sunday.
    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.
    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.
    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.
    But in Luke’s gospel, there’s a detour that I don’t often remember.

  • God knows how fearful we are

    I have an active imagination, so it doesn’t take much for my fears to take on a life of their own. I got a lot of practice growing up in the 80’s where every van was driven by a kidnapper—possibly a whole Satanic cult—that was looking to abduct me.

    Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smoting.”
    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people -- and she had a list of people on her own smite list.
    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?
    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them -- they don’t know what they’re doing.”

    The Easter Bunny made an appearance at Cynthiana Christian Church on Saturday morning to meet and greet children and adults of all ages. The children participated in an Easter Egg Hunt outside the church, as well.
