  • What the world needs now is love

    By Julie Olt
    Guest columnist
    Many of you are probably familiar with the popular 1965 song “What the World Needs Now,” which was composed by Burt Bacharach. The first stanza goes:
    “What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of. What the world needs now is love, sweet love, No not just for some but for everyone.”

    CYNTHIANA PRESBYTERIAN
    This year’s Vacation Bible School studied some of the events from Joseph’s life. The theme was Egypt: Joseph’s Journey from Prison to Palace so we decorated with an Egyptian theme and the central character was Joseph himself.
    Children step back in time at Egypt, exploring the life of Joseph.
    We are exploring Pharaoh’s palace, experience thrilling “real life” dramas. And play high energy games, sampling tasty snacks and hearing unforgettable music.  Plus meet lots of new friends.

  • We were never meant to walk the road of faith alone

     These days, a lot of people are in recovery, from drug or alcohol addiction, from childhood trauma and abuse -- the list goes on.
    It’s good that people are seeking help for the things that hurt them.
    But church?
    Over the years I’ve noticed an increasing number of articles and books and blogs written by “recovering” church people, former Christian fundamentalists or evangelicals, former Catholics, former Baptists.

    If it’s true, as the proverb says, that “envy rots the bones,” then my bones are dust.
    Every once in awhile I hear from a certain friend whose life is perfect, or so I think.
    Just recently she posted on Facebook: “Well, we can cross a trip to Ireland off our list!! Had a fabulous vacation with all our wonderful kids, their spouses and our five -- five!! -- adorable grandbabies!!!”

  • It’s so good to be in the same boat!

    By Tim Teater, Associate Pastor, Cynthiana Christian  Church

    “Though we did not all come over on the same ship, we are all in the same boat.” WOW! Whoever said that first, got it right.
    Two weeks after open heart surgery, God finally got me into the boat. And it is really a wonderful blessing, though quite torturous, right now. It has taught me an important lesson for all of us who take pride in being the one who always does for everybody else and allows nobody to help us.

  • God’s Grace is a gift to us

    Recently I visited my friend, Judy Kitchen. She is completing a degree at Winebrenner Theological Seminary in Findlay, Ohio. We read a number of translations of II Thessalonians 1:11-12. One thing that caught our attention was Paul’s consideration of God’s grace in verse 12.

    By the time you read this, this will be old news and the nation will most likely have already moved on to the next outrageous thing.
    However, as I’m writing this, Kathy Griffin is making headlines.
    Who is Kathy Griffin (and why should you care)? She’s a 56-year-old comedian and self-identified “D-list celebrity” known for being abrasive, brash, crude and sarcastic.
    Most recently she made the national news when she posed for a photo, holding up the fake, but realistic, bloody decapitated head of President Donald Trump.

  • Cockroaches and sin... both will destroy your house

     
    My husband hates two things: lying and cockroaches.
    And if there’s such a thing as a lying cockroach, then that critter should especially sleep with one eye open.
    The thing about cockroaches, or “palmetto bugs,” the more genteel name they’re called in the South, they prefer staying hidden in the dark.
    So, your house could be crawling with them and you might never know since they hate the daylight. That means, once the sun goes down and you and your family are snug in your beds, these pests come out to feast and play.
