  • Sunday event to help Eden’s family

    Becky Barnes,

    When Baby Eden Todd Carter was born on July 1, 2017, she was a little jaundiced, but nothing that caused concern for the doctors. However, in just a few short weeks, the concern became real.
    At just a little over a month old, Eden became very jaundiced.
    Her parents, Chris and Ashley Coppage Carter, who are from Harrison County and living in Lemoore, California, with Eden’s big sister, Ivy Blair, noticed one morning in mid-August that Eden’s eyes were yellow.

  • In spite of it all, trust and rejoice!

    By Tim  Teater
    Cynthiana Christian Church

    “Make a joyful noise unto Jehovah, all ye lands. Serve Jehovah with gladness: Come before His presence with singing.” (Psalms 100: 1-2)  
    Make…serve…worship…with a joyful noise…with gladness…with singing.  
    Violent atrocities in our public gathering places and homes make that hard this Thanksgiving. Maybe one of my blessings can help. I thank God for it, every day.

  • Grace Notes

    One day last week I visited with the family of Jeremy, a 14-year-old teen who battles Tourette syndrome.
    Not only is the entire family battling the baffling neurological disorder that causes Jeremy to involuntarily and often violently move parts of his body and involuntarily make vocal sounds, but they are also battling the unkindness of people.
    People don’t understand and so they judge him, is how Jeremy’s 10-year-old sister Jamie explains it.

  • SEC football: Which is the best team?

    The Southeastern Conference is the most confusing that it has been for many years.  
    Teams that are always better than average are not very good. Teams that generally are not very good are better than usual and some teams can be put into both categories. Of course, there are the teams that are always good and are still good.
    One team is playing with an interim coach (Mississippi) and two coaches have already been fired (Florida and Tennessee).  
    The two teams without a coach have been the biggest underachievers in the league.
