  • Turnovers jam Rams, but Christian Academy splits pair

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team recently split a pair of contests, dropping a 60-46 decision to Northside of Louisville but rebounding with a 68-49 win over Mt. Carmel, from eastern Kentucky.

    Turnovers killed the Rams against Northside.

    After looking like they had the game in hand in the first quarter at Northside, the Rams lost their momentum because of the turnovers.

    While Forrest Bowman had come off the bench to give Christian Academy a first quarter boose, the Rams were looking at a 30-20 halftime deficit.

  • Reader offers thoughts on fasting

    I wrote a column a few weeks ago questioning why I do not see American Christians fasting, or why it is not more a part of our culture.
    I was blessed to get some rewarding feedback from one of my readers, “Pat,” and would like to share some of her experiences that I find inspiring.
    These are her words, not mine, and I hope you may find it interesting and perhaps useful in your own spirituality, and perhaps adopt fasting as a part of your own walk with God.
