  • Scripture and experience attest: Christianity does work

    The question of an unbelieving world is, “Does Christianity work?” When the chips are down and when the pressure mounts will Christianity stand the test?  Does faith in God make a difference?

    Scripture and experience says – Yes! Paul saw Christianity at work in his second imprisonment and he reflects back on these experiences where he saw how God helped him (2 Timothy 4:16-18). The Lord stood with him and strengthened him.  God can help us in the same ways he helped Paul.

  • Buy local, think global

    When shopping for food, try to broaden your horizons beyond the usual grocery or discount store. By spending more of your food dollar locally, you help strengthen your local food system.

    Try making a stop at local agribusinesses when fresh produce is in season. Look for Kentucky made products in all your food outlets. Try spending at least 10 percent of your food budget on local or Kentucky foods.

  • Senior transportation in jeopardy

    Rising costs and shrinking government assistance is endangering the senior transportation program ran by the Central Kentucky Community Action Council.

    Lynne B. Robey, who was hired as executive director in January, said last program year, the costs for the program were double the reimbursement rate.

    “Central Kentucky Community Action Council, Inc. is no longer able to operate any programs in this manner,” said Robey. “We feel a deep commitment to the seniors; however, we can no longer jeopardize the financial status of the agency.”
