    Three Kentucky men were sitting around the general store talking about issues they have with their wives and how they had resolved them.

  • Christmas is God’s answer to our pleas for fixing pain and sorrow

    BY NANCY KENNEDY

    Years ago I read about a college student in the middle of final exams, distracted and distraught because her mother was ill and she wanted to be home with her.

    The mom assured her daughter that she was fine, that she would be OK. 

    After her last exam, the college student raced home, and as she walked in to see her mom, her mom opened her eyes, smiled -- and died.

    Great message Sunday morning on the “Gifts of Christmas” taken from Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6-7. Jesus brought the gifts of wisdom, power, and peace to us if we call upon Him to be our shepherd.

    We delivered our Christmas stockings Sunday evening.  

    There will not be ARC tonight. It will resume Jan. 6.

    Remember to bring new tennis shoes, any size, by Jan. 10.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from Matthew 2:1-12 called “Returning a New Way.”  He shared how the wise men enjoyed their purposeful journey and after seeing Jesus came back home new people.  Ronnie share the song “Lord, Please Come Down to Me.”

  • A few cupcakes, some Percocet and a lot of grace

    Over the past few years, my friend Mike and I have had some rather unorthodox conversations about faith and stuff.

    Mike’s the one who once prayed that God would fix his toilet and it was fixed miraculously. He’s also the one who assured me that it’s OK to tell God when I’m angry at him since he knows it anyway and he won’t smite me with boils for being angry.

    Mike is also the one who one year ridiculously announced he was giving up pride for Lent, which I still remind him of 10-plus years later.

  • Have you ever considered thanking God for fleas?

    I’ve always enjoyed the story about the little girl who asked her father where people came from. The father explained that God made Adam and Eve and that they had children, and their children had children, and soon the world was populated with people.

    The little girl then went to her mother asked the same question. The mother told her that people evolved from monkeys through a process known as evolution.

  • Even with our flaws, God shows us grace

    If you’ve been in church for any length of time, depending on the church you may have heard sermons about Bible heroes: strong and mighty Samson, brave David the shepherd boy who fought the giant Goliath and killed him with his slingshot and a stone.

    There’s Daniel in the lion’s den, the three Hebrew teens in the fiery furnace, Moses who led the Israelites out of Egypt.

    Perhaps you’ve heard the story about the small-town prosecutor who called an elderly grandmother as his first witness in a trial. She put her hand on a Bible and was prompted to swear that she would tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
