  • Reception opens quilt display on CU campus

    Katie Mynette Speer, born and raised in Campbellsville, has an exhibit of her quilts in the Pence-Chowning Art Gallery on Campbellsville University’s campus, 205 University Drive. The exhibit is open to the public until Feb. 20, with a reception on Feb. 12 from 3:30-5 p.m.

    “These quilts are comforting to lie under, or when you are not using it, you can put it across the back of the chair and enjoy the beauty of it,” Speer said.

    One of Speer’s quilts was the first quilt ever accepted by the Coca-Cola Art Show in Elizabethtown.

  • 1914 fire reshaped Hodgenville

    I completely missed it.

    Last week, as I was doing a little research on the history of Hodgenville (remember, three years until the bicentennial), I came across a clipping of an event that occurred 100 years ago.

    A fire destroyed much of downtown Hodgenville on April 28, 1914. Twenty-six businesses in the northwest quadrant of Lincoln Square turned to ashes that night. The event put a damper on the City’s 100th year celebration.

    Most of the businesses that were rebuilt can be seen on the square today.

  • On the road to spiritual renewal

    A spiritual change is the greatest change that can take place in any of us. Paul tells the Romans, “There is no one righteous, not even one” (3:10-12). So a spiritual renewal is needed for all of us.

    We are renewed when Christ comes into our hearts and lives for the old is gone and the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

    But what about down the road? Is it possible to experience even more renewal later? Yes. Paul in Philippians 4:10-13 is talking to Christians who have already met Christ and now he gives three areas of renewal needed.
