    Locust Grove offers “The Core”

  • My 6-year-old granddaughter, Layla, had seriously taken in the entire funeral service for her beloved Papa; the songs sung and the words spoken had touched her tender little heart. One minister told those present that Tom would want all of us to continue telling others about Jesus. The day after the funeral, Layla was playing at my house with a little boy who had been in church very little.  On his way home, he asked his stepmom, “Did God really make me?”

    She answered, “Why, yes he did! What makes you ask that?”

  • An addition to Lincoln Days this year will be an indoor stage presenting insiders’ stories about the history and culture of Hodgenville’s annual festival. Based on the Smithsonian Festival’s annual narrative stage—where visitors get up-close experiences with artists from around the world—Lincoln Days will present local festival participants sharing their stories and experiences about their role in the festival. These oral histories will be presented in the Lincoln Museum Community room on Saturday, Oct. 5.
