  • Do you prefer the good or bad news first?

    Which do you want first: good news or bad
    When someone says, “I have good news and bad news,” which one do you prefer to hear first?
    Joe went to his doctor who posed that question to him.
    “Give me the good news first,” Joe said.
    “You have 24 hours to live,” the doctor told him.
    Clutching his chest, Joe said, “If that’s the good news, what’s the bad news?”
    The doctor said, “I meant to tell you yesterday.”
    Ba dump bump. (Groan.)

    Children’s revival planned

  • Does God bless Christians who sin? Of course he does

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    One of the Internet blogs I follow, “The Stretch Marks Blog,” is written by a woman in Texas, Melissa Lee.

    She’s beyond hilarious, loves big hair, “The Bachelor,” her crazy family, chocolate and Jesus.

    She writes mostly about superficial stuff, but not really. There’s a depth to her faith that shines through even her weekly “The Bachelor” recaps.

  • Beware of sharp-toothed sheep

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

    His father, a second-generation preacher, trained the boy, who had a talent for sweeping and pointed gestures, to proclaim the name of “Jay-zus” — and bilk money from the faithful who came to hear him preach.

  • A closer look at ‘digger-inner’ faith

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    About three years ago, my friend, a self-named foodie, moved to New York City and would send messages about all the amazing food he ate and even included photos. Last year he thought he died and went to epicurean paradise when he got a job at a public relations firm that handles big name chefs and fabulous restaurants.

    He said he gets paid to eat such awesome food that adjectives haven’t yet been invented to describe its awesomeness.

  • Bible reading marathon begins New Year’s Eve

    Some Lawrenceburg residents will celebrate New Year’s Eve in a way most wouldn’t suspect.

    “We’ll start reading with the first verse in Genesis to the last verse in Revelations,” said Lisa Owens, president of the Anderson County chapter of Awakening Ministries of Kentucky.
