  • CITY ON A HILL
    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.

  • I have an active imagination, so it doesn’t take much for my fears to take on a life of their own. I got a lot of practice growing up in the 80’s where every van was driven by a kidnapper—possibly a whole Satanic cult—that was looking to abduct me.

  • Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smoting.”
    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people -- and she had a list of people on her own smite list.
    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?
    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them -- they don’t know what they’re doing.”

  • Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles recently announced that Kentucky couples will have the chance to walk away with a $5,000 grand prize package in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s (KDA) first Kentucky Proud Weddings Contest.

  • We spent the weekend weeding, preparing soil and planting potatoes, onions, leeks, lettuces, peas, carrots and beets.
    It felt so good to start the vegetable growing season.  Then I looked at the weather forecast calling for snow in April. Oh well, these spring vegetables won’t mind a little cool weather. They should respond quickly to some April showers.
    In fact, some lettuce seedlings had already emerged in the kitchen garden from last year’s stray seed, a sure sign of early spring greens that love this time of the year.

    The Easter Bunny made an appearance at Cynthiana Christian Church on Saturday morning to meet and greet children and adults of all ages. The children participated in an Easter Egg Hunt outside the church, as well.

  • Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days. Proverbs 19:2
    A study at Vanderbilt University Medical Center found that the instructions are confusing on the boxes of almost all over-the-counter cold medications for kids.  Researchers evaluated 182 parents as they read the directions and treated their children. Over 50 percent of the time, they got it wrong. 
    The researchers are recommending easier language with clearer graphics.
