  • A few weeks ago, I wrote about a local pastor, Larry Silverman, of New Covenant Grace Fellowship.
    Shortly after that I was dusting my bookcase and found a book Larry wrote, “The River is Here.”
    The river in the title is taken from something Jesus said: “Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart’” (John 7:38, New Living Translation).

  • True to most springs in Kentuckiana, one day is sunny and warm, the next cloudy and cold.
    It’s an anxious time of the year for most gardeners as we watch the sun coax open a little patch of crocus or catch sight of an old landscape filled with waves of blooming white snow drops.  
    Must we wait for the forsythia to bloom as we pray for warmth?  No, there are plenty of other early bloomers to keep us content until spring truly arrives.

  • I am a political junkie! I can’t get enough of the political theater unfolding before us. It is entertaining but at the same time is of utmost importance. I sometimes get caught up with the candidates’ and pundits’ claims that “we have to get this right”, and, “this is the most important election of our lifetime!”
