  • Hodgenville News - August 9, 2017

    Thought for the week: You must tell yourself no matter how hard it is or how hard it gets, I’m going to make it.

    I will miss Vanessa Hurst’s interesting and funny stories with Lost in LaRue.

  • Eclipse excitement

  • DIY home canned tomato juice

    If you want to make and can your own tomato juice, an average of 23 pounds of tomatoes is needed per canner load of 7 quarts, or an average of 14 pounds per canner load of 9 pints. A bushel weighs 53 pounds and yields 15 to 18 quarts of juice – an average of three and one fourth pounds per quart. Wash, remove stems, and trim off bruised or discolored portions.

  • The Necessity of Sowing

    We all enjoy the harvest. The celebration of fresh fruits and vegetables are a delight. Likewise, it is a delightful celebration when a spiritual harvest takes place. When the seed of the gospel takes root in the life of an unbeliever and he or she responds to the gospel and enters into a relationship with Jesus a harvest celebration commences. Unfortunately, we get so centered on the harvest that we forget that every harvest begins with the sowing of the seed. Where seed is not sown, the harvest will never occur and where the seed is sown, the harvest will happen.

  • Powers of Life

    Dwight L. Moody was asked to conduct a funeral service.  Since this was his first, he went to the Bible to observe what Christ did in His earthly ministry.  He found that Christ broke up every funeral He ever attended.

    One day Jesus was entering the city of Nain and met a funeral procession.  A widow’s son had just died and the burial group was on their way to the cemetery.
