  • Have you ever gotten blamed for something you haven’t done?  Most of us have experienced this and it is a dreadful feeling.  Well, there are a great many things we blame erroneously on one thing or another, and lichens are one of them. Lichens, often described as barnacles by worried gardeners, usually show up on woody plants after some sort of thinning or decline has occurred.  They are not the problem only the result of a change in the plant’s environment.

    HARRISON COUNTY HYMN SING

  • By Don L. Powell, Gideons

    It’s Sunday morning; It’s Father’s Day and my wife and I are planning a full day of activities after church. The cell phone rings and the smiles turn to tears as we hear the news that our 18-year-old granddaughter has been killed by a drunk driver.
    Our world shatters like glass.
    Three months later as we prepare to enjoy our evening meal, we receive another phone call and learn that our 6-year-old grandson had been struck by a pickup truck and was not expected to live.

  • About two years ago, we became caretakers of two cats when our youngest daughter moved back home to rebuild her life.
    Last year, she moved in with a friend who has two dogs -- and an allergy to cats. So, we agreed to take care of Target and Mohawk until our daughter lives in a more cat-friendly space.
    They’re old cats, probably 13- or 14-years old, which is between 63 and 66 in human years.
    They take a lot of naps.
    They also sometimes barf on the carpet (but rarely on the tile), and they sometimes sneeze on the windows and the furniture.

    Many of you are probably familiar with the popular 1965 song “What the World Needs Now,” which was composed by Burt Bacharach. The first stanza goes:
    “What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of. What the world needs now is love, sweet love, No not just for some but for everyone.”

  • CYNTHIANA PRESBYTERIAN
    This year’s Vacation Bible School studied some of the events from Joseph’s life. The theme was Egypt: Joseph’s Journey from Prison to Palace so we decorated with an Egyptian theme and the central character was Joseph himself.
    Children step back in time at Egypt, exploring the life of Joseph.
    We are exploring Pharaoh’s palace, experience thrilling “real life” dramas. And play high energy games, sampling tasty snacks and hearing unforgettable music.  Plus meet lots of new friends.

  •  These days, a lot of people are in recovery, from drug or alcohol addiction, from childhood trauma and abuse -- the list goes on.
    It’s good that people are seeking help for the things that hurt them.
    But church?
    Over the years I’ve noticed an increasing number of articles and books and blogs written by “recovering” church people, former Christian fundamentalists or evangelicals, former Catholics, former Baptists.
