  •  In one way, LaRue County could be called the birthplace of the National Day of Prayer.

    President Abraham Lincoln, born outside Hodgenville on Feb. 12, 1809, made a proclamation in 1863 for a day of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer.”

    In 1952, a joint resolution by Congress, signed by President Truman, declared an annual national day of prayer. In 1988, the law was amended and signed by President Reagan, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May, according to the website http://nationaldayofprayer.org.

    Pierce has authored six books, including her most recent release, Laughing in the Dark. Pierce has ranked among Pollstar’s top-selling live performers and her comedy DVDs are consistently strong sellers, with six certified Gold and three Platinum releases.

  •  Do you recall an expression, “Children are to be seen, but not heard”?

    When it comes to being a Christian in today’s world, that seems to be the feeling of many people. It is OK to be a Christian, but they don’t want you trying to force your beliefs on them.

    Sometimes Christians are not treated the same way as any other group. No one seems alarmed when any other large group gets together, but they become alarmed when the gathering has a religious purpose.

  •  We all have different gifts … because of the grace God gave us. Romans 12:6

    Learn to recognize your dominant gift and build your life around it. Otherwise, you’ll end up living with regret.

    David sensed that he was more than a shepherd or a singer. He was a leader-in-the-making. Killing Goliath just gave him a chance to demonstrate it. Had he failed to seize the moment, he’d probably have gone back to tending sheep.

    What blinds us to our dominant gifts?

  •  New Haven and Rolling Fork Fire Departments will observe a service of recognition and blessings at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 10 at the departments' station, 363 Center Street, New Haven.

    The two departments provide fire protection and rescue to the City of New Haven, and an area of about 100 square miles in southern Nelson and northern Larue counties.
