  • Plan ahead for successful summer canning

    First, you need to decide which type of canner you’ll be using. There are two types of canners available: boiling water canners and pressure canners. A boiling water canner can safely be used to can high-acid foods like fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and acidified tomato products.

  • Learn to live a life that is true

     The hymn says, “Living for Jesus, a life that is true, striving to please Him in all that I do ….” 

    Titus 2:11-15 gives three suggestions that would help us in our living for Jesus.

    It was another poet who said, “All I have is a voice.” But it was Maya Angelou, poet, author and so much more, who gave full-throated life to that idea in 86 years that almost defy description.

    Last week, in this space, I wrote about the LaRue County High School seniors having their group photo taken at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park.

  • 'A Remarkable Church Called Nolynn' presented Sunday
