Church News

  • Entitlement separates us from God

    I have heard the question posed, (I expect you have as well), if you were prosecuted in a court of law, for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? It is a legitimate question.

    According to the Barna research group, there is statistically no difference for divorce, and numerous other cultural and moral issues in professing Christians and the rest of society.

    We know as Christ followers that we are to be a “separate” called-out people. We are to live differently than the rest of the world.

  • God knows our needs, has plans for our lives

    Do you experience worry, anxiety, fear in your life? Dumb question, right? All I have to do is turn on MSNBC, or Fox News for awhile to see the political scene, storms, flooding, ISIS, and the economy, and I am ready to go out and play in the traffic. It’s enough to make your head explode.

    “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” I Corinthians 13:13 (NIV).

    There’s little doubt that the Martin Family Circus has scored what might be the prime gig for a group making its own name at the Kentucky State Fair. The Martins, people with strong Kentucky ties, will be opening for The Oak Ridge Boys’ amazingly popular – 41 years and counting – show.

    Participants are asked to put together a special hat for the hat parade. A prize will be awarded to the best creation.

    This outreach program is free.

  • Keep an ‘eye on the prize’

    As a youngster, I grew up on what is known as a “hill” farm in western Kentucky. When I was five, I was unceremoniously dumped on my grandparents who had already raised six children of their own, and surely did not need another mouth to feed. We were poor and I had to work. Our only source of income was selling milk to the old Pet Milk Company. I had no exposure to church, but I always had an awareness that there is a God.
