  •      It has been a joy to watch our Chinese grand-daughter grow in her relationship to the Lord.  So we were thrilled recently to read a statement she made in one of her school papers, I want to be remembered as a shining light of Jesus.  Jesus said in John 8:12, I am the light of the world; he who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  This is one of the seven self-descriptions of Jesus introduced by I am.  Our light as followers of Christ is a reflected light.

  • Larry Davis has spent the past 20 years of his life dedicated to being the volunteer director for the LaRue County High School brass ensemble. Davis stated that, “It started as a quintet program,” a group of five people playing music or singing together, “but so many kids wanted to be involved this year (2018) that we had to make it an ensemble.” Davis currently has an ensemble of eight students. It was nine up until the New Year when one of his students had to move away.
