  • Pastor Bob Russell writes in his book Jesus, Lord of Your Personality, that having a lot doesn’t tend to produce a grateful spirit.

  • A pastor thought God gave him an idea and he presented it at the church board meeting. After giving his most impassioned plea and really “selling” the idea, the board voted down the pastor’s proposed changes 12-1. The head elder looked at the pastor and said, “Well pastor, its 12 votes to 1. It looks like you’ve been outvoted and it is time to go home. Will you please close in prayer?”

  • One South Oldham High School grad is making the trip of a lifetime — nearly 3,000 miles.

    Luke Sparks joined 11 of his Western Kentucky University Phi Gamma Delta fraternity brothers on a bike ride to raise $100,000 for Alzheimer’s research.

    It’s the third trip for the fraternity. In 2010, a grandfather of a brother passed away from the debilitating disease causing the fraternity to ban together for the cause.

    The team traveled from in two different bike rides, where they raised close to $100,000, said Sparks.

  • Hanging over my office desk is a picture of General George Washington in humble prayer in a pine grove, with his horse, at Valley Forge. It is an inspiring picture of an inspiring man of prayer. Skeptics want to claim that all representations of our first president as a devout man of faith are false.

    Here are some of the things George Washington said about God. They are taken from the book, George Washington, The Writings of Washington, edited by John C. Fitzpatrick.

  • A woman took her family reunion pictures to a photo lab to have them touched up a bit. While discussing the project the clerk said, “We can do amazing things with these photos. We can remove wrinkles and make you look 30 pounds lighter.”

    The woman responded, “You can? Can you put them on my sister?”

  • Human resources is often referred to as “the business of people” and no one knows people better than Trasee Whitaker, senior vice president of human resources at Masonic Homes of Kentucky.

    Whitaker, of Crestwood, was chosen as one of “20 People to Know in Human Resources” by Business First, a Louisville publication.

    “It is an honor to be included along with other talented and influential HR colleagues that I admire as well,” Whitaker said.

  •  

    Duane Murner is no stranger to acting like a politician.

    Having spent 12 years as one, after two terms as a fiscal court magistrate and one term as County Judge-Executive, Murner, a Prospect native, has the inside knowledge of what is expected of an elected official.

    But having retired from politics himself in 2010, Murner now just acts as a politician, namely former Kentucky Secretary of State Caleb Powers, as part of the Chautauqua program.

  • Last week I wrote about how imperfect our human love is. Perhaps this most quoted scripture of the Bible is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.” But why does God love us so much?

  • Sixteen area young men and women graduated this past Sunday from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints seminary program offered by the local Crestwood Kentucky Stake.

Around the world, hundreds of thousands of students and their teachers meet each weekday during the school year to study the Holy Scriptures. Seminary classes routinely begin 90 minutes before school each day.
