  • Eschatology: The study of the end times

    As a collegiate and religion major in the 1970’s I encountered a book that had many people wondering about the future. “The Late Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey took a speculative look at a variety of historical events and tried to blend sections of scripture that are difficult to understand with those events to come up with an approximate date of when the end history as we know it on earth would occur. This is known as the eschaton and the study of the end of time is known as eschatology.

    Thanking school board members

    This month, Kentucky celebrates School Board Recognition Month — a time to recognize the five dedicated members of our board who focus on putting children first. Jennifer Beckner, Larry Dodson, Joyce Fletcher, Walt Schumm and Kevin Woosley put in countless hours to do what is best for our kids.

  • Choice isn’t a bad thing for Oldham Countians

    Let’s talk about choice.

    The term choice has gotten a bad rap the past few years. Especially “Pro-Choice,” because it has come to define the abortion issue. Pro-choice has come to identify those people who have little or no problem with aborting unborn children. As much as I believe such a choice is wrong, and that it involves killing a human being, that’s not what I want to discuss today.

    Today I want to talk about choice in our political leaders. Specifically about having a choice in whom we elect.

  • Stroke is an emergency, know the signs

    For every hour that a stroke is untreated, 120 million irreplaceable brain cells die and the brain ages 3.6 years.

    Your quick response in recognizing stroke symptoms and calling for help is vital to your future health. Stroke is very treatable if you recognize the situation and seek help immediately.

    If you notice any of these signs, don’t hesitate. Call 911 immediately.

    • Sudden dizziness

    • Trouble seeing in one or both eyes

  • Wake up with anticipation

    School Bus Issues

    In the past few weeks, many parents have expressed concerns about late buses. We’d like to explain what is causing those issues and what we’re doing to alleviate them.

  • The potter and the clay: God is working on you

    Most of us have had the experience of working with clay. The lump of clay feels good in our hands as we work it and make it soft. Then we make it into something of our own creation. It probably isn’t very good by worldly standards, but we were probably impressed with what we made because we made it.

    One thing I can guarantee you is that the clay never told us what it wanted us to make it into.

    Jeremiah is inspired by God to use the powerful image of God as the potter and you and I as clay.
