Today's Features

  • A team of Kentucky Baptists brought healing and hope to hundreds of people in the Philippines still recovering from Typhoon Pablo, a devastating storm that struck the island nation two years ago.

    The six-member team, including members of Rolling Fork Baptist Church in Boston, provided medical exams and treatment to nearly 900 people in the Philippines between Aug. 24 and Sept. 2. They also held worship services and led two pastors’ conferences.

    Rolling Fork pastor Bruce Nichols said much work remains for those trying to rebuild.

  • Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman, a great Presbyterian evangelist of another day, wrote the hymn “One Day.” It is one of my favorite gospel hymns for it expresses the whole plan of redemption in the refrain:

    Living – He loved me.

    Dying – He saved me.

    Buried – He carried my sins far away.

    Rising – He justified freely, forever:

    One day He’s coming – O Glorious Day!

  • Some people would undoubtedly call him crazy.

    Jerry Cooper, known to some as “The Hornet Man,” has made a habit of something that scares most people: collecting hornet nests and, often enough, the hornets that are inside.

    Cooper works as a custodian for LaRue County Schools. But when the call comes that someone needs a nest removed, he leaps into action.

  • Dan and Nick Thompson have seen crazy things happen. They’ve heard about crazy things that have happened. And they’ve written a book about it.

    The brothers have actually written two books: “Thompson Family History” and “Stories Fer Rednecks.” Both have crazy stories, but just one tells some of the family history.

    “People have been telling us how much they like them,” Nick said.
