    Luke 24:32-35 – They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven and those who were gathered together, saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of bread.

  • From the beginning, America was founded on the Christian faith, inspired by Christian hope, guided by Christian truth, and nurtured in prayer.  Independence Day reminds us of some much needed truths that we must not forget.

    America’s hope does not lie in her illustrious past. Past greatness does not guarantee future hopes.  We do well to remember Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

  • An event to honor veterans on Independence Day will be held from 11 a.m, to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 1 at CreekFront Park.

    The event will include a Veteran’s Address at noon from Hodgenville Mayor Kenny DeVore. LaRue County Judge Executive Tommy Turner will also speak at the event.

  • Where’s Waldo? He’s in Hodgenville, of course. The famous children’s book character in the stripped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five local businesses throughout our community this July.

    Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in the community, including the partners of The Sweet Shoppe, Lee’s Famous Recipie, The LaRue County Herald News and more.

    Because of my relative youthfulness (37), I can be tempted not to directly address my elders. But God has much to say to them in the Scriptures. I’ve recently been encouraged and inspired by the sweet example of Juanita Cruse, who after a long and difficult life, finished life by dying well and going to meet her Savior with eager expectation. Here are some truths to the elderly from observation and from Psalm 71.

  • Have you heard the old expression, “Better late than never.”  Fathers, please accept my congratulations and prayers for your recent Fathers Day.  I hope you had a good day and the days since then and in the future will be days of blessing for you.

    Let me acknowledge some things before we look at some statistics.  I realize there are some one-parent homes that are doing the best they can, and the mother is to be commended where there is no father present.  

  • Sarah Whelan, the 13-year-old homeschooled daughter of David and Beverly Whelan from Howardstown, was among the students honored by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) for their exceptional scores on the ACT or SAT.
