  • TOUCHPOINTS: Don't worry

    If you are like most people, it is simply a fact of life that from time-to-time, you worry. 

    We worry about our children, family in general, finances, and sometimes our safety.  There are some things we cannot control, such as the weather; and we find ourselves worrying about ruined trips because of rain, our crops because of not enough rain, getting an incurable disease: it goes on and on.

  • COLUMN: The Lord's goodness is sweet

    We are blessed with good food in America, whether it is in our home or in one of the many restaurants near us. One wife said she had changed her system for labeling homemade freezer meals. At one time she labeled the containers as meatloaf, pot roast, etc. Now she stocks her freezer with things her husband really likes –  “whatever, anything, I don’t know, I don’t care, something good, or food.”  

    No matter how he responds when she asks him what he wants for dinner, she knows there is something waiting in the freezer.

  • COLUMN: Put the secret sin away from you

    There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you. Joshua 7:13

  • COLUMN: Jericho's walls came tumbling down

    Joshua had commanded the people, saying, “You shall not shout or make any noise with your voice, nor shall a word proceed out of your mouth until the day I say unto you, ‘Shout.’ Then you shall shout.” Joshua 1:10

    God gave Joshua specific instructions about how to conquer Jericho. It was a supernatural strategy which consisted of waiting, walking and no talking. The children of Israel had to march by faith day after day with no apparent results. The faith-walk was a test of their obedience and trust. (Psalm 37:34)

  • LaRue Baptist hosting 'Biker Sunday'

    LaRue Baptist Church will host “Biker Sunday” July 10.
    Charles Allen, a member of the church, said the event is a first for the congregation. If it’s a success, they’ll build on the idea next year.
    “We’re expecting in excess of 125 motorcycles,” Allen said.
    At least two bike clubs have committed to the event and the parking area in front of the church will be reserved for motorcycles.
    Allen and his daughter, Judy Bottoms, will open the church between 8 and 9 a.m. to greet early arrivals.

  • COLUMN: America's hope rests with God

    Things don’t sound so good in America. I doubt it will get any better without divine intervention. Recently I read an article about a typical day in America: 5,962 couples marry and 2,986 divorce; drunk drivers do $18 million worth of damage; 90 million cans of beer are consumed; 2,740 teenagers get pregnant; 63,288 cars crash killing 129 people; and 3,231 women have an abortion. Would you agree things don’t sound so good?

  • COLUMN: You can be redeemed and so happy in Jesus

    A little boy made a beautiful boat, which he loved very much. He was very sad when someone stole his boat, but sometime later he saw it downtown in a pawnshop window. 

    He rushed in and said to the shop owner, “That is my boat.” 

    The shop owner replied, “No, it is mine, I bought it.” 

    The boy said, “Yes, but I made it.” 

    “For $10 you can have it,” said the store owner.
