  • 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. 

  • Making it through the rain

    By Ginger Lumpkin

    I sped down the interstate as comfortably as I could in the raging thunderstorm.  Lightning cracked across the evening sky, but I couldn’t stop because I had a dinner date with my girlfriends in Dayton, Ohio.   

  • Everyday evangelism

     There is a story that when Billy Graham was visiting a city for one of his crusades. 

    He was looking for a place to mail a letter and was walking around the city for a while.  He came across a young boy and asked the boy if he knew how to get to the post office. The boy gave Billy Graham the directions and before leaving, Billy said to the boy, “Come on over to the arena tonight, and I’ll tell you how to get to heaven.”

  • I challenge you

     When I attended seminary each student was assigned a spiritual director. And I am thankful every day for the challenge my spiritual director gave me when I was in college which forms the basis for the challenge and the promise I extend to you.

  • Good parents prevent abuse

    By Oldham County Cooperative Extension

     April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Let’s use this time to reflect on this problem and to recognize the importance of good parenting.

  • McConnell plans to address drugs

    By Mitch McConnell

     Across Kentucky, one topic of conversation dominates: the presidential election. People are captivated by the spirited campaigns and candidates in both parties. In my travels through the Commonwealth, I am often asked for my opinion or to make predictions about the race.

  • Easter is a love story

     The drama of Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter is a love story. It is the story of God’s love. 

    I think the parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) is the love story Jesus told during his life to help prepare the disciples to understand how his death could be used by God to redeem the world.
