  • Connersville Christian hires Ashland native to lead church

    Some want to be doctors or lawyers when they are young, but Warren French knew at an early age that he was destined to do something much more divine.
    Barely a month ago, Connersville Christian Church put an end to a vacancy that had the church without a senior minister.
    To fill the position, the Lord sent an Ashland, Ky., native to once again lift the spirits of the growing country church.

  • What face do you show?

    The other day I read an article written by Sharon Miller, a woman who stopped wearing makeup “as an act of Christian discipleship.”
    She was getting ready to go shopping with her in-laws and as she went through her usual morning routine of blow-drying her hair and picking out an outfit, she decided to go to the mall sans makeup.
    She said she had been inspired by a book, “Dance of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Women’s Spirituality,” by Maria Harris.

  • Churches need ‘Family Day’-like togetherness

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother MUST make seven-layer dip.

  • Feeling your pain in my heart

    Being known as a religion writer, sometimes people write or call me to tell about their experiences with God.
    Sometimes they tell me of their theological ideas, which may or may not coincide with mine. Sometimes they tell of their own deep pain, past sin or present struggles.
    Around Christmas I found an envelope on my chair, marked “personal and private.” Hand-delivered and from a woman in the community, it contained a handwritten letter several pages long, written from the woman’s “prayer closet” during the early morning hours.

  • Pain could be as much a virture as it is a curse

    Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.
    After the first surgery his hand had lost quite a bit of feeling. On the one hand (no pun intended), that meant it didn’t hurt any more. But on the other, no feeling meant he couldn’t do his job, which requires using both hands and all his fingers.

  • To give or not to give

    A woman called the newsroom looking for help.
    She said she was a “sign flyer,” street lingo for “panhandler,” and that she felt targeted by local police who had issued her a $75 citation for approaching a car.
    “I wasn’t violating the law,” she said.
    She said she stands in front of a busy intersection near a shopping center and several restaurants, flying her sign that reads: “Breast cancer survivor — need help. God bless.”
