    A playoff history lesson

    I was doing some research for Friday’s regional championship football game between Anderson County and Conner when an interesting tidbit jumped out at me: This will be the fourth time Anderson County has advanced to the regional final, but the first in which Anderson will not be playing the state’s top-ranked team in its class at the time.

    Not that it will mean anything Friday night. The Bearcats will have their hands full with Conner.

  • Worriers aren’t putting their faith in God

    I worry about everything.
    I worry about bills, friendships, mistakes, today, tomorrow — you name it, I worry a lot.
    In these uncertain times and with the state of the world, who doesn’t worry? Well, I often have to check myself and remember what the word of God tells us about worry.
    In Psalm 37:8, “do not fret — it leads only to evil.”
    The synoptic books Matthew and Luke both have specific similar commands to the disciples from Christ.
