  • I have a friend who Trusts. God. With. All. His. Heart!
    He talks a lot about faith and giving everything over to God.
    Frankly, sometimes I want to smack him.
    The funny thing is, although I’m not laughing, 10 years ago he didn’t have a real soul-transforming faith and he used to come to me, asking about what it means to be a Christian.
    One of his big questions at the time was about the power of God. He was feeling like a dog’s chew toy, as if God and the devil were playing tug-o-war with him.

    A Country Gospel Music Festival will be held at Oddville Christian Church on Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to dark.

    If anyone or group would like to sing call Wayne Tolson at 859-588-2394 to assist with scheduling.
    All donations will go to the Oddville Christian Church Building Fund.

  • When I first started thinking about writing an article to do with stewardship, I thought about the churched folks, dechurched folks and the unchurched folks.
    My thought was “What is the first thing each one will think about when they hear the word stewardship?”
    So I conducted a poll of 100 random people asking the question, “What is the first word that comes to your mind when you hear the word stewardship?”

  • Recently, a friend told me about the nose prints on her front window.
    “I’ve been pressing my face against the window, watching and waiting for my daughter to come home,” she said.
    After being away for a number of years, and after the worst possible year of her life thus far, she’s coming home for a time of respite and healing, starting over, starting fresh.
    However, at least as I write this, she’s not home yet.

  • For just a few short weeks each year, strawberries are abundant. They’re juicy, sweet and, yes, even succulent. They can be found at grocery stores everywhere. But, according to one local strawberry farmer, the best of the much-loved berries are locally grown.
    “They’re picked ripe,” Cynthiana farmer Butch Case said. “They’re sweeter than strawberries that come from California or Florida.”
