  • The Apostle Paul suggests the best way to live

    “The Lord is near.” Paul makes this statement in Philippians 4:5 as he speaks of the second coming of Christ.

    In light of Christ’s soon return what should we do? The apostle makes suggestions.

    First he says, “Let your gentleness be evident to all.” The way of Christ is gentleness and kindness. Some want to throw their weight around and are not nice, kind and gentle. Paul said in light of the soon return of Christ, we need to be kind and gentle to all people.

  • Labeling an entire subgroup is a mistake

  • Statistics are brutal when they hit home

    One-in-five Ethiopian babies will die before reaching age 5.

    Some websites say it is one-in-11.

    Either way – what a brutal statistic.

    According to the National Institute of Health, Ethiopians have large families that suffer from a lack of basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and health care and education.

    Too many children – not enough resources. It’s no wonder so many Ethiopian children die so early – while others are orphaned.

  • Lighten Up LaRue helped with life changes

    A dream about dying caused Carol Shaw to wake up to the fact that she was destroying her body with unhealthful eating.

    “I had the worst dream that I was really dying,” said Shaw, a LaRue County Schools bus monitor who lives on Jericho Road. “For the past couple of weeks, I had felt bad, and when I woke up from that dream that seemed so real, I realized that my body had been trying to tell me I was damaging my health with the way I had been eating.”
