    Josh Shepherd, a Cynthiana resident who once lived in the Philippines, will be the guest speaker.  The public is welcome to attend this dinner and hear about Josh’s experiences and the culture and people of this country. Traditional Filipino cuisine will be served.

  • From time to time I see a skunk meandering around the farm during the day, it’s unusual, however.  
    A few years back there was one that was sniffing about under some pines in the lower pasture and it was evident from its movements and from its  awareness  (or lack thereof) of its surroundings that this creature knew it had the advantage.  
    Their eyesight is poor so sneaking up on him to get a photograph was possible but it made me realize that startling a skunk is probably not a good idea.

  • Every once in a while, like 20 or 50 times a day, I wonder if I’ll ever get better.
    I wonder if my faith will ever grow deeper or stronger, if I’ll ever have more passion for God, more desire for holiness.
    Sometimes I think I must surely be the sorriest excuse for a Christian in the history of Christendom.
    Sometimes people ask me when my next book is coming out, and I tell them probably never. I explain that the publishing market has changed dramatically, which is true, and that people don’t buy books the way they used to, also true.
