  • One of the oldest churches in the area will celebrate its 200th anniversary on Sept. 28-29.
    Two hundred years ago, the Mount Carmel Christian Church was founded, as a direct result of the Cane Ridge Revival, held in August 1901, eight miles east of Paris,  Kentucky.
    That revival, by some accounts, drew twenty to thirty thousand pioneers, hungry for the Word of God.

    Connersville Christian Church will host a Fish Fry on Oct. 19 at 8 p.m.
    AWANA now in session Sundays from 5:30-7 p.m. for children 5th grade and younger.
    C3 middle and high school youth meeting Sunday evenings from 5:30-7 p.m.

  • Sometimes I jokingly say I hate hope, but I’m not joking.
    Recently, I learned that I’m not alone, and that hating hope a real thing.
    On his podcast, The Place We Find Ourselves, Christian counselor Adam Young talked about our war with hope.
    He said we hate hope because it causes an inward groaning, an agonizing longing for something we want from God.
    It’s especially agonizing when the longing is for something deeply important -- far beyond hoping for good weather for your picnic.

  • 10 years ago . . .
    Births announced this week are: Caylee Brooke Browning, Aug. 28, daughter of Robert and Ssraia Browning; Sophia Renee Simpson, July 1, daughter of Ssgt. Steven Travis and Stephanie Kathleen Simpson.
    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library will be moving its community room across street between Shell Mart and Biancke’s Restaurant on Pleasant Street. The children’s library section will be moved into the Charles Feix room. The change is due to overcrowding.

  • While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe. Cover crops are multi-purpose in the vegetable garden.  
    While many disease pathogens winter-over on plant debris (and an equal amount remain viable in the soil) it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean.  

  • The Saturday In Carlisle Festival is soon coming. The Carlisle Rotary Club invites you to come, participate and enjoy another day of great festival activities.
