  • I have a copy of Chuck Coleson’s 1992 book, The Body: Being Light In Darkness.
    Sometimes I take it from the shelf, read and reflect on the stories presented.
    They express  transformation.
    One person surrenders life to bring God’s redemptive expression to others.
    Coleson writes of excruciating sacrifice. No denomination dominates the narrative. Pastors, priests and rabbis minister to individuals and groups inside and outside their traditions. The transcending stories bear witness of the power of God.

  • Over the years I’ve heard hundreds of stories from people about how they came to faith in Christ, or how God delivered them from something that had them bound or how they were drawn closer to God because of a certain situation.
    More often than not, the circumstances that precede the turning point or the epiphany or the moment of surrender or rescue are dire, tragic, painful. Sometimes the painful situation is what God uses to bring a person from no faith to new faith or running from God to running to him.

  • Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden has announced that as of July 1, 2015, dairy farmers can enroll in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Margin Protection Program for coverage in 2016. The voluntary program, established by the 2014 Farm Bill, provides financial assistance to participating dairy operations when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below the coverage level selected by the farmer.

  • The Harrison County Ag Development Board has applied and been approved for the 2015 Ag Development funds. A signed agreement has been sent to Frankfort and we now wait for the application to be returned to start the program.
    The time frame is as follows; two weeks of public notification followed by two weeks of producer application sign-ups. Following the application period the applications will be scored and the top scores will be awarded the funds for their project.

  • About 40 years ago a fungus was discovered in pepper crops in New York and since it has spread as far as California and Florida.  It’s in our midst, as well.  
    The fungus in question causes phytophthora blight in peppers.  Some refer to the sudden wilting of peppers as damping off, phytophthora root rot, crown rot or stem and fruit rot.  
    Clearly the fungus impacts the entire plant.
    I had a problem with this blight in my pepper patch and it seems as though it is back!
