  • Have you ever thought that someone was really different than what they really were because of suppositions you made or things someone told you? Have you ever prejudged someone and then learned that they are not like what you thought — at all? Have you ever negatively stereotyped someone because of what they looked like, who they hung out with, or what they stood for and then found that they were actually a better person than what you thought they were? I mean, you even found out you liked them!

  • Happy 100th Birthday, Extension!

    Today is a very important milestone. On this day, 100 years ago, the Smith-Lever Act was signed, establishing the Cooperative Extension Service.

    Before the Smith-Lever Act, there were three important acts that paved the way for the purpose of the Extension Service.

  • The Smith-Lever Act creating Cooperative Extension nationwide was signed on May 8, 1914. Today, 100 years later, we will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Cooperative Extension Service.  Throughout Kentucky, extension offices will be celebrating 100 years of helping people change their lives for the better. 

  • In judging, we play God. A sign of idolatry is the inclination to judge. When people fail to satisfy our demands, we criticize and condemn them in our hearts, if not with our words.

    The truth is that when we judge others – criticize, nit-pick, attack, condemn – we are literally acting like a god. We commit the sin of Lucifer, coveting the judgment seat reserved only for God. Scripture tells us clearly “There is one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you that you judge your neighbor?” (James 4:12)
