  • To classic hymns with lots of love

    One of my favorite books on my shelf at home is a stolen hymnal.
    I stole it probably 15 or 16 years ago from church and about 12 years ago I told my pastor about it. That was after our church had already gotten rid of all the old hymnals and started putting the lyrics to the songs we sing in the weekly bulletin and on the video screen in the sanctuary during the service.

  • Good Friday Community Service

    Good Friday Community Service will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Owenton. You are invited to the annual community Good Friday Service. Local pastors will be leading the service. Our theme is “Images of the Cross in Isaiah.” There will be powerful, uplifting music and a nursery will be provided.
     

  • Reflections on Ash Wednesday

    I know Ash Wednesday has come and gone, and we’re smack in the middle of Lent, but Ash Wednesday is on my mind.
    This year I went to two Ash Wednesday services, one in the morning and one at night.
    My husband had asked, “Are you that bad?”
    Well, last year I had vowed to give up recreational shopping for the 40 days leading up to Easter and I did well until I resisted not the temptation to buy something that I can’t even remember and probably isn’t even in my closet anymore.

  • This was the worst breakup ever

    When I was 12 I went steady with Paul Minardi.
    He gave me his blue St. Christopher’s medal, which is what boys gave their girlfriends back then, back before St. Christopher was de-sainted.
    I don’t remember how long we went steady, only that he broke up with me and shattered my 12-year-old heart.
    It was the Worst. Breakup. Ever.
    Until the next one, that is.

  • This week in church news

    Cedar Hill Baptist

    It was good to have Bob and Judy Cull with us as Bob shared from God’s word on prayer. We believe in prayer and in God’s promises, but too often we do not use the power of prayer to the potential it has in our lives. The Bible tells us to pray persistently and to pray without ceasing. Too often we as Christians use it as a last resort. As Christians, we can be confident that God always hears our prayers and will answer them.

    Bro. Joe Davis, a missionary to West Africa, gave a talk about his work in Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau to the church’s combined Sunday School classes. Bro. Davis later brought the message in the Sunday service. He taught as Christians, we are called to spread the Gospel to the world. God knows no geographic or political boundaries — our mission field can be anywhere there are lost people. He said God chooses ordinary vessels to do his work, and we must make ourselves available for his purpose. Many thanks to Bro. Joe and his lovely wife, Joyce.

  • Grace Notes: It all goes back to the qualities of the inner self

    The other day I read an article written by Sharon Miller, a woman who stopped wearing makeup “as an act of Christian discipleship.”
    She was getting ready to go shopping with her in-laws and as she went through her usual morning routine of blow-drying her hair and picking out an outfit, she decided to go to the mall sans makeup.
    She said she had been inspired by a book, “Dance of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Women’s Spirituality,” by Maria Harris.

  • Old Cedar Baptist

    Sunday was a rainy and gloomy day, but you couldn’t tell it by all the love, singing and praising the Lord that went on inside our little church.
    Our church opened up with Bro. James welcoming everyone and our choir, “New Beginnings,” singing “Let’s Just Praise the Lord and Holy Ground.”
    Cecila did a wonderful job singing “Your Secret Place.” Also, Joy and her puppet, Rover, put on a little skit called “You can’t get brownie points by making brownies.”
