  • A minister was speaking to a Sunday School class about the things money can’t buy.

    “It can’t buy laughter and it can’t buy love” he told them. Driving his point home he said, “What would you do if I offered you $1,000 not to love your mother and father?”

    Stunned silence ensued. Finally a small voice queried, “How much would you give me not to love my big sister?”

    Last week we looked at the importance of laughter and joy in life.  Can we make these a part of a “living will?”

  • Paul writes in Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” 

    Some of the examples of this also include Christian symbols found in nature that inspire people.

  • Over the last two weeks I have looked at the powerful words from the prophet Amos.  Speaking for God we read, “I hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me…But let justice roll on like a river, and righteousness like a never-failing stream (Amos 5:21 & 24). 

  • The South Oldham Fire Department held their annual Fire Fest last Saturday. Turnout was solid again this year, despite rain washing out many outdoor activities in the afternoon.

  • The prophet Amos spoke words from God to the people of Israel, known as the Northern Kingdom during the eighth century B.C.  He proclaimed powerful words of judgment on all those who had roles in government, religion and commerce.  If you work in any of these, and you are willing to take a good honest look at yourself, read Amos.  The most often quoted verse in Amos is, “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5:24).

  • Ask Andrea Essenpreis how she got started in business and she’ll tell you it all began when she had a baby just over nine years ago.

    “I had a corporate job, sitting at a desk in a nice office,” Essenpreis said. “After I had my first child, I quit my day job to be at home with him. I soon found myself baking…a lot. I had always been a hobbyist baker, but it was like I had a need or compulsion. I had to bake “all the time.”

  • Even after 30 years of preaching with the same church Pastor Greg Allen still comes in every day excited and ready to work. At the rate Southeast Christian church is growing, especially on Allen’s Crestwood campus, his workload is likely to increase but he said he’s ok with that.

    “It’s a good problem to have,” he said of the growth.
