  • Why does God remain invisible and silent?

     I was on a prayer retreat in the woods camping in an open-air cabin with screens all around. I was all by myself, and enjoying the solitude. As darkness fell I relaxed in bed as the air turned a little cool with a slight breeze. It was a perfect night to sleep soundly.

     Are you tired? Had a long day? Don’t you just want to flop on the couch with a beverage and turn on the tube? Maybe have a little fun playing in the yard with the kids/pets beforehand.

     One hundred years ago, “the war to end all wars” ravaged Europe. What we now call World War I ended in part thanks to the more than four million Americans who mobilized to join the Allied Powers’ fight overseas. Over 100,000 of them did not return home.

     LEXINGTON – David St. Louis spoke with Drew LaMaster Friday night before the state cross country meet about the dynasty North Oldham has built at this level.

    St. Louis, the current boys’ coach, was telling LaMaster, the coach from 2006-11, about how long the streak could go.

    “I said, ‘We can keep this this up and we might make it interesting since St. Henry won (11) in a row,’” St. Louis said.

    North Oldham still has a ways to go, but it’s well on the way.
