    We were greatly blessed today as Ben Allen shared God’s Word with us. Using scriptures from Mark and John, he challenged us to answer the question “What do our lives say Christianity is?” We too often fall into the trap of sharing our religion instead of Christ. Sometimes we know all the “churchy answers” but we don’t truly know Christ. It was great to have Helen Allen and Mary Cobb and her family back worshipping with us today.

  • In the 1900s it was a common sight in most backyards. During the summer it gleefully skipped through the air, wrapping its ends around sturdy trees or poles secured in the ground.

    Clothespins provided a solid anchor on its expanse, and for many years the lowly clothesline seemed to bask in the attention of the American family.

    A long, forked wooden pole propped in the middle of the line would lift the laundered clothes to just the right height for youngsters to duck under as they galloped about in their pretend world.

    I heard this week about the fellow who went to the doctor and found out he had a very contagious disease. The doctor told him he was going to have to be quarantined and put on a bologna and see diet.

    “I understand being quarantined,” the fellow said. “But how is a bologna and cheese diet supposed to help me?”

    “It’s not that bologna and cheese will help you,” the doctor said. “That’s just the only food that will fit under the door.”

  • Ten years ago I wrote: “My friend Mike ate breakfast last week, which is nothing short of a miracle.

    “He doesn’t shake anymore or wake up in the middle of the night sweating. The little green monkeys that haunt him are gone too.”

    This week, my friend Mike is celebrating 10 years being sober. Not just sober, but healed and forgiven, whole and hopeful. He’s tasted the mercy of God, felt his hand of grace that pulled him from the abyss.

    Perhaps you heard about the woman who was pulled over for doing 65 mph in a 40 mph zone?

    When the policeman asked for her license, she told him she didn’t have one, that it was revoked two years ago for drunk driving.

    The policeman then asked for her vehicle registration, but she said she had stolen the car, killed the driver and stashed his body in the trunk.

    “Ma’am, don’t move,” the policeman ordered. “I’m calling for backup.”

  • When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior – and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

    I understood the whole clutch-brake-gas pedal thing in theory, but when it came to putting my foot on the correct pedal at the correct time there seemed to be either one too many pedals or I had one too few feet to do it right.

    We had a wonderful morning of worship through beautiful special music provided by Mikala, observance of the Lord’s Supper, and a great message of truth from God’s Word. The message from Proverbs 29:18 titled “Give Them Something to Believe In” challenged us to surrender our whole life to God and to get our priorities in order.

  • The summer camping program at the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys & Girls Ranch officially opened to campers for its 41st season on Sunday, June 12. The camp runs throughout June and July, serving both boys and girls alternating weeks, throughout the camp season.
