  • SPORTS BLOG: Some thoughts on Kentucky's win over Tennessee

    I had one of those rare opportunities that will stay with me the rest of my life Thursday night.

    Fortunate enough to secure a couple of press credentials, my Landmark Community Newspapers colleague, photographer Jonna Spelbring Priester of the Henry County Local, and I watched Kentucky beat Tennessee, 61-60 in one of the best college basketball games I have ever seen.

    Not one of the best women's college basketball games.

    One of the best. Period.

  • Where two or three gather

    In church you often hear the phrase: “Where two or three are gathered together...,” and sometimes this phrase takes on new meaning.

  • Am I a miserable sinner? You bet

    I am often asked by those who read my column if I actually “walk the walk” or practice what I write here in the paper.
    The answer is I try.
    Do I fail miserably at times? You bet I do. The truth is I often feel either like I am a failure at being a Christian or at best a lukewarm Christian.
    What the scriptures tell us about lukewarm Christians in Rev 3:16 is: “because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”
