  • According to history, the Prophet Jeremiah was a man who would primarily be looked upon by most of humanity as a failure.  
    For much of his life he was a poor, isolated, unpopular and persecuted individual. In Jeremiah chapter 11 and again in chapter 26, we read that his life was threatened for prophesying the Word of the Lord.
    In chapter 20 Jeremiah was arrested, whipped and placed in stocks for prophesying the Word of the Lord.  

  • Whenever I need big-time prayers, I go to the big guns: my 6-year-old great-niece, Leah.
    This past summer when Hurricane Irma was about to decimate Florida, Leah prayed for the “hurricane to go away” and especially that her “Tee Tee Nancy” wouldn’t be scared.
    Irma didn’t go away, but it did decrease enough in strength that at least my house didn’t blow away.
    So, I put that in the win column for Leah’s answered prayers.
    Plus, I wasn’t afraid, so that’s two wins for Leah.

  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Janelle Gardner-Cox in Harrison County announces that producers who suffered qualifying livestock losses due to natural disasters, including  Extreme Cold , could be eligible for the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP).
    “LIP provides livestock producers with a vital safety net to help them overcome the damaging financial impact of natural disasters,” said Gardner-Cox.

  • Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron?  
    Are there little scabs on the underside of the leaves of your orchid? Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster.  
    Well, we can blame some of the plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.

    They keep flying by don’t they? The years. The years seem like pages of a book that are caught by the wind. They just keep flipping over, moving relentless to the end.
    Here we are at the turn of another year. Sometimes when you are singing, you have to reset to get back on the pitch. What does that reset look like for a Christian? 

  • Editor’s note: This column is adapted from Nancy Kennedy’s book, “Praying With Women of the Bible,” which is no longer in print.
    A number of years ago, amid the mice and filth of a Taliban prison in Afghanistan, two ordinary American young women wrote and sang praise songs to the Lord.

  • Some years are worse than others: I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles, other years a few popped up here or there.  
    Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in.
     On sunny days they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write but I need not worry about them as they sun themselves. The ones that make it inside, however, meet my vacuum cleaner.
    The perceived invasion is as simple as looking for a little warmth and protection from winter weather.

    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.
