  • Central Baptist sponsors annual Soles4Souls shoe drive

    Central Baptist Church in Lawrenceburg has started its annual Soles4Souls shoe drive to provide shoes to people in need around the world.

    “This is our seventh year,” said Pastor Rick Clark. “Two years ago we passed 10,000 from just this church. Last year we added 3,200 pairs. We are hoping that we can exceed 15,000 total [this year] since we started the collection. The event runs through March 28, and we have received 400 pairs already.”

  • God provides even during a Dickens of a time

    By Nancy Kennedy

    With apologies to Charles Dickens, it truly was the best of times and the worst of times.
       I had just learned I was pregnant with our now 25-year-old daughter. We had wanted another child, and the news was definitely in the best of times category. It remained best and blissful for about a month until the worst of times began.

  • Faith, not our own efforts, is the key to salvation

    Most Christians agree that we are not justified in Christ Jesus by anything that we have done. We are not called based on the standard of holiness we have attained.

    But questions arise in our hearts. Do I do enough? Do I pray enough? Do I serve others enough? Do I hate sin enough? Do I have the right theological conviction? Has Christ done enough in me so that I may attain Heaven?

  • Sin separates us from God; the Gospel brings ‘good news’

    Vince Lombardi famously said, “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” Striking comment. But I wish to take Mr. Lombardi’s comment in a different direction; the gospel isn’t everything; it’s the only thing. What do I mean by that? Everything begins and ends with the gospel of Jesus Christ. So what is the “gospel?” The gospel is translated “good news.”

  • Worship is not a spectator sport

    I came across something this week on social media that I think is worthwhile to share.

    “Twelve reasons I don’t go to sporting events anymore.

    1. Every time I went, they asked for money.

    2. The people sitting in my row didn’t act very friendly.

    3. The seats were very hard.

    4. The coach never came to visit me.

    5. The referees made a decision that I didn’t like.

    6. I was sitting with hypocrites. They only came to see what others were wearing.
