  • Progress on domestic violence

    Lexington Herald-Leader
    Kentuckians will be safer, thanks to a pair of laws taking effect this week that strengthen protections for victims of domestic violence.

  • The ‘big ask’ gets answered

    At my church this summer we’re learning about the “hard sayings” of Jesus.
    He said stuff like, “I have not come to give peace but division,” “Judge not” and “Let the dead bury the dead.”

    He said, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
