  • TOUCHPOINTS: Give thanks to the heavenly father

    Thanksgiving Day is a special holiday. A time when families from near and far come to visit. A special time of getting together, eating a good meal and discussing whatever has happened during the past year.

  • COLUMN: Thanksgiving changes your life

    With all my heart I believe we are a people and a nation that has truly been blessed by God. Of all those who give thanks, our names should be at the top of the list.

    People compile a wish list for Christmas. Some draw up a list of resolutions for the New Year.  But, we often overlook a Thanksgiving list of why we are thankful.

    A group of housewives made a list of things for which they were grateful:

  • COLUMN: God's mercies begin anew each day

    Great is the faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each day. Lamentations 3:23

    Jeremiah had almost given up hope but God reminded him that his mercies are new every morning. The Hebrew term for “mercies” can be translated “covenant love” or “steadfast love.” It is linked with compassion, truth and faithfulness.

    In the middle of this valley of judgment and suffering, Jeremiah realized that “the Lord is good to those who wait for Him.” And this is true today as well.

  • LaRue Baptist School wins award

    The LaRue County Baptist School in Hodgenville received a National School of Distinction status from the Schools Fight Hunger program. Fewer than 2,000 schools nationwide earned this level of distinction in the 2010-2011 school year.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Christians may be persecuted

    Whether burned alive for Nero's entertainment, tortured during the Middle Ages, or called names by a hateful junior high peer group, Christians have always faced persecution. 

    While Christians and non-Christians alike suffer unjust treatment, persecution implies an intentional and systematic infliction of suffering or hardship because of a person's beliefs. Some believers are persecuted simply for speaking the truth. 

  • COLUMN: Remember to thank God

    The Psalmist said, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord!” We need to look for things to be thankful for. A thankful spirit should be the foundation of our lives.  

  • PHOTO: Middle Creek children participate in 'Christmas in a Shoebox'

    Middle Creek Baptist Church “Wednesday night kids” put together 16 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes for delivery to impoverished countries. There were 11 children in attendance – all excited to help make Christmas better for others.

  • COLUMN: Times change, God doesn't

    “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you.” Joshua 1:5

    Can you imagine trying to fill the shoes Moses wore? God had used him to turn the Nile River into blood, part the Red Sea, destroy the Egyptian army, receive his law on Mount Sinai and feed more than 2,000 Israelites each day in the wilderness.

  • Wilkinsons celebrate 11 years with First Baptist

     Elder Jerry and Rosalyn Wilkinson celebrated their 11th anniversary with First Baptist Hodgenville Sunday morning.

  • Interruptions offer an opportunity to witness

    Cal Thomas said, "Love talked about is easily ignored. But love demonstrated is irresistible.” 

    Jesus not only talked about love and kindness, but he modeled it for us. In Luke 8:40-56 Jesus showed kindness to two individuals and thus illustrated for us ways we may show kindness to others.
