  • ‘In a world of storms, church is the safe place where we find Him’

    I found Granger Community Church (“GCC”) while researching T.D. Jakes’ church in Dallas, Texas, The Potter’s House. A Religion feature I’m writing for the paper is about a new local church that’s associated with the Texas church.

    As to how I found GCC, a Web site listing the Top 60 church blogs had GCC as blog No. 59 and I clicked on the link.

    On Tuesday night, everything was, and was not, settled as the Little League regular season came to end at River Road Park.  Lion’s Club and Kiwanis both finished the year with eye-popping 16-2 records.

    Both teams will get byes into the second round in the post-season tournament that got started last night.

    * Cynthiana Democrat, June 1896 - “The Bridge, Pleasant Street - Ali! What a place to dream.

From the heat and turmoil of the day we seek this spot.
