    Balance is key in everything we do.

    Dancing all night is just as important as yoga in the morning. Relaxing on the couch and listening to the rain is just as important as taking a long walk in the sunshine.

    A good conversation with friends is just as important as sitting peacefully in a quiet room, and a breakfast feast of bacon, eggs, fried potatoes and biscuits and gravy is just as important as a bowl of fresh fruit and oatmeal.

  • By Nancy Kennedy, faith columnist

    Back in 2001, my pastor announced to the congregation, “You don’t know God.”

    He went on to say, “If you think there’s somebody too hard for God to reach or a situation too difficult for him to fix, then you don’t know God. You don’t know what he’s able and willing to do in a person’s life.”

  • Antioch Christian Church will hold a revival this weekend, Friday through Sunday, with Bro. Rick Burdette as evangelist.

    Burdette is a former minister at Antioch and Anderson Christian Church. He is now at Gardenside Christian in Lexington.

    There will be special music before each service with the Good Ole Boys on Saturday night and the Hilltop Trio on Sunday night.

    Services will be at 6:45 Friday and Saturday night, 11 a.m. Sunday and 5:45 p.m. Sunday.

  • Central Baptist Church will begin its annual Soles 4 Souls Shoe drive on March 15.

    Central Baptist will be collecting all kinds of good used or new shoes.

    Shoes may be dropped off at the church, which is located at 1958 US 127 North in Lawrenceburg.

    Other churches and organizations have participated in the past.

    Churches or groups that would like to participate can have collection box placed at their facilities.

    Shoes will be collected by Central Baptist and processed for shipping.

  • Salvisa Christian Church will host A Lenten Journey each Monday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. through the end of March. A guided meditation will be provided to take participants on a journey through Lent via seven stations. The booklet, Fellowship of Prayer, by the Rev. Traci Smith will be used.

    Each week will have different scripture readings, meditations and prayers.

    “Visit one station or all seven. It’s up to you. It’s your journey,” organizers said.

    For more information, contact the Rev. Vicki Ray at 502- 229-0515.
