  • Never too late to start studying the Bible

    Elliot’s wife asked him to leave their home. He had spent most of his life on drugs and alcohol. His life was crashing down around him; with nowhere to stay, he checked into a hotel on Christmas Eve.

    He was contemplating suicide when he noticed a Gideon’s Bible on top of the TV.

    “Who needs that,” he said to himself as he smacked it off the TV and onto the floor.

  • Service: A key to discipleship, not heaven

    A man dies and meets St. Peter at the pearly gates.

    St. Peter says, “You need 100 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all the good things you’ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it was. When you reach 100 points, you get in.”

    The man says, “I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart.”

    St. Peter gives him three points.

    A La Grange health clinic is reaching out to even more patients with the installation of a women’s wellness kiosk.

    The Hope Health Clinic opened in September to serve the underinsured residents of Oldham, Henry, Trimble and Carroll counties.

  • Church welcomes leadership writer Sept. 18

    St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church will welcome a guest speaker on Sunday who spent three years interviewing leaders across the country about their relationships and success.

  • Wild, wild west

    Never in a million years did I think I’d risk my life on behalf of The Oldham Era, but that’s what I did Saturday during a Wild West festival presented by Christian Country Cowboy Church.

  • FAITH: All things to all people

    Our Christian faith is an outward directed faith.  From the very beginning early Christians sought to tell unbelievers about the good news of Jesus Christ and convert them to the faith.  However, individuals and churches can easily become inward directed, so preoccupied with their own needs, that they forget about those who have no faith, or no church home.
