  • A Note Left Behind

    By Dr. Larry Bishop, Cynthiana Christian Church

    Next week’s play-off football games will determine what two teams will make it to this year’s Super Bowl.  
    One of the teams that lost in the earlier play-off games was the one from our nation’s capital, the Washington Redskins. It also seems that former franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III has decided his time in the nation’s capital is over as well.  

  • Getting my hate on for the new year

    I rarely make New Year’s resolutions, and I’m not sure if this counts as one, but around the end of December I noticed that whenever I was in church my eyes would be drawn to the big steel crossbeam in my favorite window.
    I’d look at it, unable to look away, and think about what it means, why the cross was necessary in human history and my part in it.
    I’d think about sin, my sin, and I’d find myself praying, “God, show me my sin, that I might hate it as much as you do.”

  • Down with Gospel Glitz

     My husband and I started a tradition a few years ago of attending Christmas Eve service at a church we’ve never attended before.
    That can be good and that can be not so good.
    Last year we went to a church in Orlando after hearing great things about it. We were flying out the next day from Orlando to visit our daughter who was in North Carolina at the time, so we decided to make Christmas Eve into a mini extravaganza with church, dinner afterwards, a walk downtown and a night at an Orlando hotel overlooking Lake Eola.

  • Lest I forget

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is taking a short holiday break. This column first ran a few years ago.

    I have been blessed with a terrible memory.
    It’s a blessing because I don’t remember things that haunt other people with better memories. I can’t remember most of the fights I’ve had with my husband or kids, or hurtful things people have said or done.
    However, I also can’t remember people’s names or my passwords and PINs or what I went into the kitchen to do or came to the store to buy.

  • God fix this, please!

    Years ago I read about a college student in the middle of final exams, distracted and distraught because her mother was ill and she wanted to be home with her.
    The mom assured her daughter that she was fine, that she would be OK.
    After her last exam, the college student raced home, and as she walked in to see her mom, her mom opened her eyes, smiled -- and died.
    It was the day before the young woman’s 21st birthday.
    Months later, unable to cope, she begged her dad, “Daddy, you have to fix this!”

  • Cupcakes, percocet and grace

    Over the past few years, my friend Mike and I have had some rather unorthodox conversations about faith and stuff.
    Mike’s the one who once prayed that God would fix his toilet and it was fixed miraculously. He’s also the one who assured me that it’s OK to tell God when I’m angry at him since he knows it anyway and he won’t smite me with boils for being angry.
    Mike is also the one who one year ridiculously announced he was giving up pride for Lent, which I still remind him of 10-plus years later.
