  • Theodicy - the question of why there is evil

    If God is good why is there so much evil? This is the question of theodicy that can never be fully answered. This is one of the most difficult questions in all of theology. God is eternal, infinite, omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent and the creator of the universe. So why is there so much pain, death, struggle and evil in the world? Over the next four weeks I want to look at different facets of the problem of evil: 1) demonic evil, 2) human evil, 3) evil from the perspective of eternity and 4) trusting in the goodness of God.

  • Roll out those hazy, crazy, lazy days of summer

    Since boyhood, the lazy, hazy days of summer have been hubby’s favorite season, but in his grown-up world, he is typically out of the country from June through August. So, when a job was recently postponed, he wanted to fill the unexpected time home with as much summer fun as possible. We have crammed so many activities into the past two weeks that I feel like I’ve been in a time-warp dreamland and any minute now I am going to wake up exhausted.

  • Letters to the Editor August 7

    No tax increase

    Same story again this year. Oldham County Schools needs more money so it increases taxes. I wouldn’t mind if the school district would use some other measures first before asking Oldham County property owners to pay more.

    Why doesn’t the district sell off some of the vacant land that they have acquired over the years? It’s my understanding that they own property next to the now closed Liberty Elementary. It was purchased with our tax dollars to build a replacement school but the school board has now changed their mind.

  • Love and remember your pets

    My wife Kathy and I love our dogs. In fact, it’s a three dog night at our home. We have a lhasa apso (Sadie), a Cavalier King Charles spaniel (Stella) and a maltipoo tripod (Tigger). Over the years we have had four poodles (Niki, T-Bear, Toby and Tucker) and a lhasa (Sassy). I like to say that dog is just God spelled backwards.

  • Uncle Bob: Adding some new flavor to your summer meals

    My appreciation for food started when I was very young. I grew up exposed to great food from my Italian grandmother and German Irish food from my other grandmother. My mother cooked with an American and international flare. Family gatherings were about fun and really great food.
