  • Mueller: Letting tears flow is important to healing

    Several years ago I vacationed in southern Florida. Thousands of people were there relaxing and seeking a good time. One night, while walking down one of the brightly lit streets in Naples, I passed a Western Union office. It was deserted except for the clerk and a woman. She had a telegram in her hand and was crying her heart out. It reminded me that even in the land of good times and seas breezes, hearts can still be broken.

  • Playing politics with road plan

    We are nearing the end of the 2014 Regular Session, and, much like the week before, controversy hangs over the House because of procedures used to pass Kentucky’s road plan and how to pay for it.

    On Tuesday, members of the House Committee on Appropriations and Revenue received a revised version of Governor Beshear’s proposed road plan and budget less than 15 minutes before the start of the meeting, meaning legislators had only a few minutes to review a document more than 220 pages long before a vote was called.

  • God’s love versus God’s justice

    Have you ever wondered about the people who heard Jesus speak and didn’t believe? They saw him heal the blind and said it was from Satan. They saw him heal the lame and they said he did it on the Sabbath. He raised Lazarus from the dead and they said he must die. How can you stand in front of the Son of God, see him do unbelievable miracles and not believe? That is the power of sin. We all struggle with it all of our lives.
