  • Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,
    Here I am again, my 18th year composing my annual psalm of Thanksgiving, my public declaration of gratitude to you.

  • Dear Owen County residents,

    We are so glad to be serving here in Owen County again. My dear wife Megan and our children, Landon, Aaron, Aidan, Hannah, and Lily, are worshipping and serving here at New Liberty Baptist Church and we welcome you to worship with us.
    We hope to see many lives changed and souls saved in our ministry here. I was licensed and ordained at Long Ridge Baptist Church and served as pastor for three years at Salem Baptist Church before moving to London, Ky. to serve at Victory Baptist Church for the last four and a half years.

  • One day last week I visited with the family of Jeremy, a 14-year-old teen who battles Tourette syndrome.
    Not only is the entire family battling the baffling neurological disorder that causes Jeremy to involuntarily and often violently move parts of his body and involuntarily make vocal sounds, but they are also battling the unkindness of people.
    People don’t understand and so they judge him, is how Jeremy’s 10-year-old sister Jamie explains it.

  • The sentence usually began with “I remember when...”, and then the speaker would launch into a story of the past, sometimes served with embellishments that had tiptoed in over the years and became a permanent fixture of the narrative.
    However, many stories which passed down through the generations gave hard facts and revealed the stark realities of often difficult times in the “good ole days.”
