    September and October is a busy time for Kentucky’s apple growers. Hopefully they’ve chosen the varieties resistant to as many diseases as possible. Ripening times vary from year to year depending on the weather. If apples have coddling moth damage, they will drop up to two weeks before the crop is ripe.

    How often have you asked someone to come to church with you and they say; I would but I have so many things to do, or, I’m so busy, I just don’t have the time? Sound familiar?
    I think most Christians have heard these excuses about being busy, at one time or another.
    In the Gospel of Luke, chapter 9, verses 57-62, Jesus asked the people to follow him and one person said he first needed to go and bury his father, while another said he had to go and say goodbye to those at home.

  • I’ve started this column at least a dozen times today, and there are a dozen wadded up pieces of paper in my trash can.
    How do I even begin to put into words the events of this past week? My heart overflows with awe and gratitude -- and shame that I had doubted the love and kindness of God my Father.
    So, I guess I’ll begin with my confession: In the days leading up to the arrival of Hurricane Irma on Sunday, even though God said, “Fear not,” I feared.
