    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.

  • Do not fear walking with God

    I was sleeping soundly, all wrapped up in my sleeping bag, in my tent, miles into the back-country of Minnesota. I had canoed all day so I was tired, which helped me fall asleep quickly. 
    Suddenly, a loud crack of a tree trunk nearby followed by a growl woke me from my slumber. As my friend Billy and I tried to unwrap ourselves from our sleeping bag cocoons, we heard shouts from outside yelling “Bear!  Bear!” 

  • Grace Notes

    Whenever my husband starts a sentence with, “Before you say no, hear me out,” I know I’m headed for a heart attack or two.
    It’s usually about an idea he has for a change around the house, from knocking down a wall to rearranging the furniture.
    No matter what the change is, I immediately hate the idea only because I hate change of any kind.
    I’ve had the same hairstyle for 30 years, the same job since 1992, the same husband since 1975. The furniture in my house hasn’t changed since we moved in 16 years ago.

  • May the ‘Force’ be with you!

    Be a Jedi Christian!
    We must be prepared — we must be equipped, armed. Every day we wrestle against “The Empire” — Satan and his Imperial Forces.
    But we need not fear! The “Force” (Jesus) not only is close to us, He is here to help us. All we need do is call on Him.
    There are parallels between Jedi warriors and Christians.

    A number of years ago a woman called me at work, wanting to tell me her story.
    She wanted to tell someone who would believe her and not laugh, someone who believes that God can and does do strange and wonderful, impossibly improbable things.
    She had heard that I believe that God makes pigs fly.
    That I do, although I haven’t seen any in a very long time, but I’m praying that I will.

  • Hope in the night, light in the darkness

    Several years ago I began a column: “The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the ‘week from hell.’
    “We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.
    “Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness. We scowled. We sulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.
    “It was one B-A-D week.”
    That could be said of the past several weeks, locally and globally.

  • We are never alone

    Don Powell, Gideon’s

    Probably one of the worst feelings we mortals must occasionally endure is the feeling of loneliness.
    We may suffer the loss of a loved one or close friend due to death. We may have to suffer through the heartache of divorce after many years of marriage. You may lose a roommate unexpectedly. Whatever the situation, suddenly, we find ourselves with feelings of loneliness. We find ourselves lost and alone in a sea of people.
