  • Good stuff from the 'Good Stuff' file

    Sometimes you go to church and you hear the same stuff over and over.

    Sometimes it flies over your head or you’re thinking about what’s for lunch and the pastor sounds like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons going, “Waah, waah, waah,” and you have no idea what he said.

    And sometimes you hear something that you’ve heard before but for some reason it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. Or maybe it’s the thing that you needed to hear precisely at that moment.

  • A time to remember

    It is that time of year when the calendar and all of nature begins to tell us it is summertime!

    Traditionally and recreationally, we are told that summer begins with the celebration of Memorial Day. We all enjoy the good times that summer brings. Time for various outdoor activities that otherwise would not be suitable. But it is also good for us to take time before the hustle of summer activities to do some “remembering.” In fact, it is always good to pause in the hectic pace of life and purposefully make time to reminisce about the days and years gone by.

    Last week, state tourism leaders unveiled the latest annual study on the positive impact this industry has in Kentucky. In a word, the news was good.

    Overall, tourism generated more than $15 billion in direct and indirect sales in 2017, with the direct sales portion increasing by almost four percent over 2016’s total. Tourism supported more than 195,000 jobs and provided a little more than $1.5 billion in state and local tax revenue.

  • Sufficient grace to endure all things

    My pastor tells the story about his son needing spine surgery when he was just a young boy.

    He talks about bringing his son to the hospital and the agony of letting go of his boy, handing him over to the surgeons.

    It was a terrible surgery, he says, and they were so relieved when it was over.

    However, shortly after they had come home from the hospital, the doctor called – they missed something and had to redo the surgery.

  • Standing in the gap

    The Second Continental Congress in 1775, established a National Day of Prayer which we celebrate the first Thursday in May. Hundreds of thousands of people across the country, many different faiths and denominations, nationalities, ethnic groups and ages, participated in prayer for our country.
