  • Although I don’t think it’s terminal, it is chronic: I have a chronic case of CRS – Can’t Remember Stuff.

    That’s the diagnosis one of my co-workers gave me the other day. He may or may not have been joking.

    I tell people all the time to please, please, please remind me of stuff. It’s the CRS, folks. I just can’t remember.

    At least I’m not alone. The ancient Israelites had it too. They were always forgetting stuff, mostly the stuff God had done for them, even rescuing them from years of slavery in Egypt.

    We were blessed with a wonderful vacation Bible school last week as we studied the life of Joseph with 56 children. Thanks to all those who came and thanks to the workers. A word of special thanks goes to FaDana for organizing, to Lisa for her decorating skills and media expertise, to Linda for leading the great music, and to Martha for organizing the food.

  • Donald Ray and Betty Jane (Perkins) Bishop were married June 23, 1956 by Bro. Orlie Hale at Beechwood, Ky.

    All their family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of their “60 Years of Marriage” to be held in the fellowship hall of the Long Ridge Baptist Church on Sunday, June 26, 2016. The reception for Don and Betty will be from 2-5 p.m.

  • In the 1800s famine hit Ireland and more than 2 million Irish immigrated to America. The Brown family was part of this seemingly unending wave of starving yet determined people who looked to a new life and a new land of opportunity.

    The Browns settled in Virginia, and not long after the births of their children, both died, leaving behind four young orphans.

  • Renee Black and Derrick Dempsey will be married at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, June 18 at Long Ridge Baptist Church. A reception for the couple will be after the wedding at the Owen County Extension Office.

    Perhaps you’ve heard the tale about the little boy who, after church one Sunday, announced to his mother that he has decided to be a pastor when he grows up.

    “That’s OK with us,” his mother said, “but how did you make this decision?”

    “Well,” the boy replied, “I’ll have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell than to sit still and listen.”

  • My grandfather sold insurance by day and in his spare time he was an artist.

    He mostly painted clowns – scary clowns.

    A few of his paintings hung in our house, which meant as a kid I had major heebie jeebies nearly all the time, especially at night.

    When you’re a kid getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and you know scary clowns are staring at you from the walls in the hallway, well, you grow up neurotic and afraid.

    We had a wonderful message from Revelations 4:1-2, 6-11 on a guide to worship.  In order to worship we must recognize and acknowledge God and respond to Him.  Be in prayer for our Bible school this week.  We will be studying Joseph, from prison to palace.  Come join us each night this week beginning at 6 p.m.  If you need a ride please call 484-5236 or 514-1594.
