    “The Love of God” from Romans 8:35-30 was Bro. Dale’s message. God’s love is incomprehensible, inseparable, and inescapable. Live in God’s promises, not explanations.

  • First United Methodist

  • Elk Lick Baptist

    Bro. John’s sermon was on Matthew 21:28-32, “Perils of the Self Righteous.” If we say we will and don’t, or we won’t and do, it is wrong. We’re deceiving God and everyone. When we are in God’s will, things happen. Jesus offers permanent help from sin that causes problems in our life. Too many of us act like Christians on Sunday, and on Monday like there was no Sunday.

  • Cold weather taking toll on almost everyone

    This weather has been really hard on a lot of people lately. It seems everyone I see seems to be sick or just getting over being sick.
    Daddy hadn’t been feeling well for the last couple of weeks either and finally decided he needed to go the doctor.
    They put him in the hospital right away. He had pneumonia in both lungs. He spent a few days there. Of course, he couldn’t wait to get out so that he can go dancing.

  • Going around Robin Hood’s barn

    What a beautiful weekend. Saturday was very nice, but Sunday was spectacular. It went up to 58 degrees on my thermometer.
    Pat, Ann and I went to Louisville to another play. Somebody in the ticket office really messed up this year. We had no play in January, which was no real hardship, considering the weather. But we had two plays scheduled on consecutive Saturdays in February. It was a good drama and very well done, but I’m just about all cultured out at the moment.
