  • Spring weather increase risk of hazardous thunderstorms

    In spring and summer, weather patterns are more active as they move through Kentucky,
    especially in the afternoon and evening, resulting in more thunderstorms.

    These weather conditions also increase the potential for lightning to strike people working or playing outdoors, and even while they are inside a building.

    All thunderstorms produce lightning.  Sometimes called “nature’s fireworks,” lightning is produced by the buildup and discharge of electrical energy between negatively and positively charged areas.

    Twenty-five years ago, 15-year-old Quinton Higgins spent about a month in Kosair Children’s Hospital after suffering lung damage and second- and third-degree burns  in the fiery bus crash.

    Today, Higgins drives a Hardin County School bus.

    The differences between the bus he drives every school day and the repurposed 1977 Ford B-700 school bus he was in that night in 1988 are like “night and day,” Higgins said.

  • Behold the wooden cross

    We are celebrating the final week of the Easter Season. This Sunday we begin celebrating a new spiritual reality—the feast of Pentecost—in which the fullness of the spirit came to rest over the apostles (Acts of the Apostles 2:1-12).

    Freed of their fears following the crucifixion, and strengthened by the power of the spirit, they were ready to whole-heartedly preach, teach and heal in the name of Jesus Christ.
