  • Beware of sharp-toothed sheep

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

    His father, a second-generation preacher, trained the boy, who had a talent for sweeping and pointed gestures, to proclaim the name of “Jay-zus” — and bilk money from the faithful who came to hear him preach.

  • A closer look at ‘digger-inner’ faith

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    About three years ago, my friend, a self-named foodie, moved to New York City and would send messages about all the amazing food he ate and even included photos. Last year he thought he died and went to epicurean paradise when he got a job at a public relations firm that handles big name chefs and fabulous restaurants.

    He said he gets paid to eat such awesome food that adjectives haven’t yet been invented to describe its awesomeness.

  • Bible reading marathon begins New Year’s Eve

    Some Lawrenceburg residents will celebrate New Year’s Eve in a way most wouldn’t suspect.

    While others toot noisemakers, wear pointy hats and consume adult beverages, this group will begin reading the Bible at the stroke of midnight and continue for several days.

    “We’ll start reading with the first verse in Genesis to the last verse in Revelations,” said Lisa Owens, president of the Anderson County chapter of Awakening Ministries of Kentucky.

  • Lovelace to appear at Sand Spring Baptist

    If Christmas is a time of joy, laughter and worship, there should be plenty of the spirit of the season going around Sunday at Sand Spring Baptist Church.

    Comedian Tim Lovelace will appear in the church’s annual Christmas Homecoming celebration on Sunday, Dec. 13, which features the Sand Spring choir along with local singers Meredith Hyatt Lewis and Jeremy Dickerson. Performances are scheduled for 3 and 6:30 p.m.

  • Living a better story

    I’m currently reading “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years” by Don Miller.

    He wrote “Blue Like Jazz,” which continues to be the best Christian book I’ve ever read, although not for its literary merit. The book is random and messy, but Miller’s thoughts are raw and profound.

    His new book begins with a movie producer wanting to turn “Blue Like Jazz” into a movie, but he tells Miller that the book as is wouldn’t make a compelling or interesting movie because his real life is boring.

  • Every baby starts life as a savage … with no morals, no knowledge, no skills

  • Finally acknowledging God hunger

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    We were eating pizza — thin crust, perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?
