  • Why me?

    Our country witnessed a devastating storm “Sandy” just last week claiming more than one hundred lives and loss to property. Around the same time the people in our Carroll County also suffered the tragic death of two children in a bus accident. 

    Several questions can pop up in our minds during such occasions. Why did the innocent children get killed in this way? Why is nature getting so cruel and violent — sweeping away the lives of people and damaging properties? Why is it happening to my family, to my beloved ones, in my neighborhood and country?

  • Church plans annual nativity scene display

    Anyone with a nativity set who would like to have the church to display it should contact Sharon Graves at (502) 523-0663.

  • Changing a person’s words can alter that person’s life

    I was in a bookstore a few weeks ago and noticed that a well-known Christian speaker and author had recently released a book called “Change Your Words, Change Your Life.” I was immediately struck by the title. If a person is looking for a positive change in his or her life, this book may hold the answer. After all, the promise seems straightforward and simple — if I can alter the way I speak, then this will alter the way I live. But is this true?

  • The love of God can bring change to a sinner’s heart

    As I sit here with this pen in hand, I am asking my Savior what he would have me say in this great opportunity to address the greatest community in the world to live. 

    First, I believe he would say you are loved by him, forgiven by him, made free by him, and saved by him. We cannot get away from his love because the blood of Calvary is real and everlasting.  Calvary changed everything. His name is Jesus, He did it all for us because of His love for us to make a new way of living without sin.  We do not have to sin any more, his blood has washed us from it.

  • Matthew offers Christians a way around their worry

    In the spring of 1871, a young man picked up a book and read 21 words that changed his life.

    At the time, this man was a medical student at Montreal General Hospital.

    He was worried about final examinations. He was troubled about what he should do with his life, where he should set up his medical practice and how he would build it.

    The 21 words that changed his life were written by Thomas Carlyle. The man who was worried was William Osler, founder of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Maryland.

  • Just like voters choosing a leader, Christians elect God

    Every so often we have to choose our leaders in our countries; some govern four years and others up to six years.

    Each candidate has to offer us, that if we give them our vote, the country will flourish, the economy will bloom, better medical attention and education for our families and so justice will finally be right for everyone … and in the end, what don’t they promise?

  • Catholic church to conduct census of Carroll County

    The Fifth Synod of the Diocese of Covington was completed in August 2006 and one of the policies signed into Diocesan law from the Synod was to conduct a census.

    It is to be like any other census, all the households within the boundaries of the Diocese of Covington are to be surveyed. This is being done because the last census in the Diocese of Covington was taken in 1939.
