  • Judas, Hated and Scorned
  • Going back home

    By Ginger Lumpkin

    Having my childhood and early adult life pretty evenly split between Indiana and Tennessee, I find that my allegiance is often torn.  There are so many things I love about the Hoosier State; the first signs of spring after a long, hard winter, pork tenderloin sandwiches bigger than the hog they came from, and some of the kindest, most friendly people you could ever hope to meet.  

  • Reach out to the lonely

     I’ve never met a stranger and I consider it a privilege to speak to everyone I’m introduced to.  You see, I’m homegrown.  I was born in Louisville and have always felt we possess good Southern hospitality.

  • Do you desire more knowledge of God?

     We read in II Peter 1:3, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” (NIV) These words got me to thinking about how we know who God is.  I don’t doubt God has made himself known to us, but in the day-to-day life of most people this seems to be an elusive knowledge.

  • The newlywed checklist

    By Zack Van Zant

     “In marriage do thou be wise: prefer the person before money, virtue before beauty, the mind before the body; then thou hast a wife, a friend, a companion, a second self.”

    -William Penn

  • United we stand, divided we fall

    By Matt Bevin

    A new day is dawning in Kentucky. For the first time in many years, the winds of financial responsibility have begun to blow briskly through the marble halls of Frankfort. These welcome breezes are ushering in the promise of a fresh start for the Commonwealth. 

  • Greet one another with a holy kiss

     A rather legalistic seminary student wanted to have a scriptural basis for everything he did. When he started falling in love he wanted to kiss her, but he just couldn’t find a scripture chapter and verse that seemed to make him feel right about giving her that kiss. So, true to his conscience, he would simply walk her to the dormitory each night, look at her longingly, and then say “Good night.”

  • Not disability, just different

     When I was young – too young to remember how old I was – I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.  At the time, it was such a little-known condition that the psychologists I worked with couldn’t recognize it and initially said I had ADHD.  

    Now, people know a bit more.  

  • We must stop wasteful spending now

    By Rand Paul

     Our country is running a deficit – a very serious deficit. We are fiscally broke and there is no end in sight to curb the limitless spending in Washington. I am outraged by the waste that pollutes our government. It makes my blood boil to see money that should be spent defending our country, instead being wasted.
