  • Patty Holbert, the expanded food and nutrition education program assistant for the LaRue County Extension Service, was last week’s guest at the Hodgenville Rotary Club. She is pictured with Rotarian Kyle Williamson.

  • How much is the average Christian aware of the concept of sacrifice in the Christian life? The Apostle Paul pleads with us to be a living sacrifice, because he says it is reasonable in light of what Christ has done for us and there can be no success without it.

    To have power with God and man we must give ourselves wholly to God. Someone said that God does not need much of a man, but he needs all there is of him. The price of spiritual power is an entire surrender to God.

    Chamber needs State Fair volunteers

  •  About 50 years ago, Grant Wise was hired at his first job.

    He was only 11, but he handled duties that would make some grownups cry in protest.

    Up at 3 a.m., seven days a week, he pedaled his bicycle, while hefting a heavy canvas bag, for miles through the dark streets of Hodgenville – no matter the weather. He retraced his route in the afternoon.

    He was a newspaper boy.

  • Every time the early Christians faced opposition they seemed to increase their praying. When they were challenged they joined together in praying even more to God for strength, guidance and wisdom (Acts 4:23-31).

    Someone said, “When life is good, we should pray; but when life is bad, we have to pray.” We are in a spiritual battle as Christians (Ephesians 6:11-18), which means we should be committed to a life of prayer. Where else can we go but to the Lord for the help we need? We are to constantly be in prayer both in good and bad times.
