Sunrise Manor Cro-knitters meet 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home. The community is welcome. This past year, residents and ladies from the community made 40 hats on looms for Headstart children. The group made hats the last two years and will begin a new project in 2014. Due to holidays falling on Wednesday, Jan. 8 will be the next meeting date. For more information, call Candy D. Vincent at 270-358-3169.
In Leviticus, an ancient text sacred to Jews and Christians, God reminds his people that the land belongs to him, that they are but sojourners upon it, and that it is their purpose to provide for its redemption.
Pastor Phillips Brooks was in the Holy Land in 1865 on Christmas Eve. He rode a horse the short distance from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. As he approached the place where Jesus was born he heard the choir singing. Brooks was inspired to write a poem expressing how he felt to stand near the place of Jesus’ birth on earth.
