  • To attend God’s reunion, people only need to ask

    When there is an event in our city, whether it is the fair, a car exhibit, the Tobacco Festival, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving day, graduation day, Mother’s Day, a wedding, someone’s birthday or many other events throughout the year, families gather and spend time in companionship, everybody together.

    These reunions enlighten kids and adults. We take many pictures, play and eat. They are moments that we will always remember and will always be a part of our lives.

  • Autumn is a time to reflect peace of God, guard hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

    The sun is lower in the sky. There is briskness in the air. The deep green of summer is giving way to hints of yellow, orange, red and brown.

    Fallen leaves are peppering the sidewalks and lawns of our community. Birds are on the wing, heading south. Flower beds are being turned over for the coming winter. Lawn mowers will soon be back in storage. Sweat shirts are around the waist and over the shoulders at dawn and dusk. Once again God is gracing us with the beautiful season of autumn.

  • In both sports and faith, learning the basics is key

    This past August, I “unretired” from coaching football and returned to the gridiron to lead the 6- to 8-year-old Pee Wee Yellow Jacket football team. 

    Most of you probably are reading this and laughing, because you understand that – at this level of football and within this age group – coaching is merely a title and not necessarily an action.

    Honestly, teaching football at the most basic level is the project at hand for myself and the three or four other coaching dads.

  • To build one’s faith requires work to maintain, build it

    They tell me that Lock Road once offered a scenic tour past the lock, the lockmaster residences and the bend in the Kentucky River before bringing you to the armory stoplight.

    With the river rising as it does, however, the stability of that road was less and less predictable. Eventually it was closed to through traffic. By the time I moved here, time had reduced the portion of the road past the lock to a wide, dirt trail accessible only on foot.
