  • Shepherds and wise men prepared to hear the good news, but they also were willing to take the journey of faith to see the Christ child. The shepherds said, “Let us go.”

    The wise men also moved on faith when they followed the star. We must also make a journey of faith. We realize that we will never completely understand God’s love for us, but in faith we must accept that he does love us enough to send his son to die for us.

  • A Hodgenville pastor is taking measures to show his congregation what togetherness means.

    Rev. Aaron Moss, pastor at Lane Lincoln Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, brought his congregation, along with that of two other local churches, to Lincoln Square in Hodgenville on Dec. 14. The group congregated and prayed for various issues, including violence throughout the world and the community of Hodgenville. They also sang some hymns at the event, which Moss said lasted “around 20 minutes.”

  • The Christmas spirit can surface in unexpected places: shopping, sitting at a red light, eating dinner and driving down the back roads of LaRue County.

    Out on Knob Schoolhouse Road, toward Sonora, you’ll find the Fulkerson house. It’s hard to miss. Covered in multicolored Christmas lights and surrounded by holiday-themed inflatables (including one chilly polar bear who shivers), the house stands out in the daylight. At nighttime, though, it shines.

  • Sunrise Manor Cro-knitters was started six years ago by Candy Vincent to get the community involved with residents. We have four ladies from the community who attend the Wednesday night group. We work on knitting looms and anyone is welcome to come out and join us.

    We meet 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesdays but are on winter break now. We will start back on Jan. 7. Three Sunrise residents love working with the looms.

    During the last three years, the Sunrise Manor Cro-knitters group made Christmas gifts (hats and ear warmers) for Hodgenville Head Start children.

  • On behalf of the LaRue County Chamber Board of Directors and our 130 members, we wish you and your families a blessed merry Christmas and a joyous New Year.

    It has been an exciting year at the Chamber as we have welcomed 24 new Chamber members and our office has seen countless visitors from near and far. We thank our members and the community for their continued involvement as the Chamber strives to always promote and support the commercial, industrial and civic interests of LaRue County.

  • Rolling Fork Baptist Church in Gleanings is a church steeped in Christmas traditions. The church was established in 1801 and for at least 89 years, they have been celebrating the birth of Christ with a live nativity scene. It is a community event that draws one of the largest crowds of the year.

    Several generations of families have participated in the production. Joseph has been played by Gene Price for more than 56 years. His wife, Charlene, was Mary for 53 years but can no longer participate due to illness. Ashley Lee Scott now plays the part of Mary.
