  • Relevant Church will hold its annual Fall Soup Supper, from 4-7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 10, located at 2505 Highland Ave. Soups, sandwiches, desserts and drinks will be available. Everyone welcome, donations accepted. For information, call (502) 732-4132.

  • As you read this I will have returned from my vacation at the beach, having returned to deadlines and ringing phones and not enough hours in the day and probably too much caffeine and not enough exercise and sleep.

    But today, as I write this, I’m still on vacation, watching the gulf waters crash rhythmically on the shore. I’ve been out here, sitting on the sand, not exactly comfortable but transfixed on the vastness of the green-gray water in front of me.

  • General Butler State Resort Park will host a Pickleball Workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 4 at the tennis courts next to the lodge. Tom and Linda Irwin from Lawrenceburg, Ind., will be the instructors. The program is designed for adults. Cost is $3 per person.

    Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in communities in the Southwest and Southern states. The sport puts less stress on the body than activities such as tennis or racketball.

  • As we move into fall, our grazed pastures may be showing areas of thin vegetative cover and bare soil. Weedy vegetation, like common ragweed and other summer annuals, may already be present, but as these plants die back naturally, cool-season weeds will take their place:  chickweed, henbit and purple deadnettle. Other weeds such as buttercup and musk thistle will likely be more prevalent in the next spring.

  • I had a conversation with a man earlier this month who was truly struggling with life.

    Down on his luck, hungry, broke, and tired he came by my door. I sat with him and listened to his story and near the end I said “God wants to help you through this.”
