  • Here’s a question for you: What is God like? From your gut, how would you characterize him?
    A number of years ago, Baylor University conducted a survey, asking people to choose words that described how they characterized God and his level of anger and also their perceived level of his involvement in the world.
    The researchers concluded that Americans viewed God in four distinct ways:

  • Old Cedar Baptist
    Wow, what a crowd we had Sunday for the Omega Force Team! Bro. James counted 98, and what an awesome demonstration they gave as they lifted amounts of weight and carried, drug, pulled and pushed to show the strength that God can give his children to overcome the weaknesses in our lives.
    We all have areas that we need more of God’s help in and the message was loud and clear. Thank you to all who attended and a special thank you to Charrdel Hammond for bringing this message and these men to our church.

  • “A considerable number of artifacts have been found in Owen County, some of which are to be seen in local collections. Mr. W.O. Lowdenback of Pleasant Home had such a collection and good material has been found in the neighborhood of Gratz on the Kentucky River.”

  • Melanie Ransdell and Bradley Rose are proud to announce the birth of their precious rainbow baby, Zayden Wyatt Rose.
    He was welcomed into this world at 2:27 p.m.,  Feb. 28, 2017, at the Frankfort Regional Medical Center, giving his daddy the best birthday present he could’ve ever wished for. As if sharing a birthday wasnt enough, Zayden also has his daddy’s red hair and blue eyes.
    Little man weighed in at 7 lbs. and 5 ounces and was 19 3/4” long.

  • Welcome to Spring. I know it’s spring because The Talking Head on TV said so this morning. I went down and built up the fire in the wood stove in the basement anyway. I’ll let it go out by noon, but when the basement is warm, it makes the rest of the house easier to heat. Hopefully, this well is the last fire of the season.

  • A teacher noticed one of her students was lost in a daydream and paying no attention in math class.
    To bring the kid out of his daze, the teacher yelled: “Johnny, what is 4, 8, 26 and 42?
    Little Johnny quickly answered: “NBC, CBS, HBO and the Cartoon Network.”
    That old joke makes me laugh, probably because it reminds me of the late great Art Linkletter’s TV segment that once was so popular: “Kids Say the Darnedest Things.”

  • A number of years ago I got a phone call from a reader with a request.
    He said he was 90 years old and had outlived two wives, yet he wasn’t sure he knew what real love is and he hoped that I could explain it.
    I don’t know if he’s still one of my readers — I haven’t heard from him since that one time. But if he is, here’s my best answer to his question:
    When I was in middle school, I loved red-haired Paul Minardi with all my 13-year-old heart. We passed notes in class and he walked me to homeroom, carrying my books.

  • Monterey Baptist
    Join us on Wednesday nights for adult Bible study, Rock Stars and women’s Bible study. All activities begin at 7 p.m.
    March 26 is Sweat Suit Sunday.
    We will have our baby dedication on Mother’s Day, May 14. If you wish to have your baby dedicated, please let the pastor know.

  • The little girl hadn’t quite reached school age when her mother, a school teacher, suggested she join the students for lunch at the school next door. The child was ecstatic at the prospect of not only attending school but of spending cherished moments with her mother.
    Monterey historian and genealogist, Margaret Murphy, lost her mother, Mattie Smith Karsner, at a young age but continues to treasure those early school day memories.
