  • No one understands like Jesus

    It is interesting to note in the gospels the blending of the humanity and divinity of Jesus. Jesus was in a boat with the disciples. Weary, he fell asleep. A storm caused the disciples to wake him asking, “Master, don’t you care that we perish?” Jesus rose and said, “Peace be still!” The waters obeyed his command. You can see his humanity in his tiredness and you see his divinity as the waves obey his command. The humanity and divinity of Jesus is apparent from the beginning of his ministry.

  • Meet Charlemagne, the Christian Emperor

    In 742 on a cold, blistering winter day, King Pepin III (Pepin the Short) was expecting a child. The child was named Carolus Magnus, also known as Charlemagne. Charlemagne didn’t receive proper education as a child. His childhood was overtaken by the laborious task of the activities of preparing himself to control his father’s lands.

  • Man will never outgrow God

    Men today believe in a little God and a big humanity. Man is taking the place of God. When you look at the inventions and progress of man, you feel that man is outgrowing God. Man is being glorified and God is being forgotten.

    But God is a great sovereign God. When David surveyed the handiwork of God he was made to exclaim, “What is man that thou art mindful of him ….” (Psalm 8:3-4). Consider some ways in which we see the greatness of God in the Bible.

  • Close the door to the past

    The new year is a good time for reflection and reaching out. But we can’t reach out until we close the door to the past. It is impossible to reach back and reach out at the same time. Paul said we must let go of one to go for the other.

  • Ursuline Sisters elect new leaders

    Five Ursuline Sisters of Mount St. Joseph were elected Dec. 29-31 to a six-year term as the Ursuline Leadership Council. They will begin serving on July 18.

    Sister Sharon Sullivan, a native of Texas, was elected as congregational leader. She is academic dean and vice president of academic affairs at Brescia University, a job which she began on an interim basis in August 2007 and accepted on a permanent basis in January 2009.

  • Baptists offer disaster relief to Haiti earthquake victims

    Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief is on alert for the developing Southern Baptist relief effort aimed at helping Haitians affected by the deadly earthquake that hit the island on Jan. 12.

    According to Kentucky Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Associate Coy Webb, the KBC will “more than likely send an assessment team within the next week, but everything right now depends upon transportation.”

  • Balance leads to an abundant life

    God desires that we each live a balanced life and the finest picture of the balanced life in the scriptures is found in Revelation 10:1-2.

    “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire; and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth.”

  • ‘And’ is a mighty big word

    I believe it was Father Brian Hehir who some years ago observed that in the Catholic community “and” is a big word.   

    As I reflect on “and,” it seems to me that it is a mighty big word in all of life.

  • Do you look like a Christian?

    Mahatma Gandhi, a former leader of India, attended school at one time in South Africa. He often attended church, read the New Testament and yet he never became a Christian. He said he had the highest admiration for the Christian life and for the Christ of the Bible. Gandhi said he might have become a Christian if he could have seen one.
