  • There is no concept more universal than resurrection.  We find the idea of life continuing beyond the grave in all religions and cults.  The hunger for immortality is strong in the breast of every man.

    As Christians we mean something different from the concepts of afterlife taught by other religions.  We need to define resurrection especially Christ’s resurrection.  The Greek word means “up” or “again”.

  • Thought for the week: God has a purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggle and a reward for your faithfulness. Trust him and never give up. 

    Hope everyone has a safe spring break. Gas prices sure didn’t have to shoot up like they did. Flowers coming up like crazy, but still too cool to be out and clean flowerbeds out. Better days are ahead sooner or later. I can’t believe Easter has already come and gone. It was just another day for us, we stayed home and did nothing. 

  • Our deepest sympathy are with the family of Chris Goodin, Sr. who passed away last Friday. He was a 1970 graduate of LaRue County High School. He was married to Shirley Sprouls and they have a son, Chris Goodin, Jr. There is no other information at this time.

    Sunday morning was Communion Sunday at First Baptist and Lane Lincoln. Reverend Wilkinson recognized the “Mother of the Church” Rosleen Price on her 91st birthday last Friday. Also, the First Lady, Rosalyn (his wife) and his mother-in-law, Corine Johnson who had birthdays on last Saturday.

  • The LaRue County Ministerial Association hosted a Community Good Friday Service at noon on Friday, March 30 at the Hodgenville Civic Center. A free luncheon was also hosted by the county churches following the service in the Civic Center’s basement.

    The Young at Heart Community Choir singing “Because He Live, Yes He Lives.” Other music was provided by the First Baptist Worship team, Jenn Mayfield, Kim Knight, Paul Martinez and Caleb Phelps.

  •  How much did it cost? We ask that question all the time about everything from a new car to a new suit? Some who get good deals are quick to speak of their “brag--ains.”

    Jesus told the disciples, “I am going to prepare a place for you” (John 14:1). Have you asked the question, “What did it cost Christ to prepare this place?

  • As we celebrate Easter, may we not forget the significance of Good Friday. On Good Friday, Jesus ascended the hill known as Calvary to face the punishment of death that we deserved in order to make an atoning sacrifice on our behalf. On the cross, Jesus found himself surrounded by a crowd of people, Roman soldiers, and two thieves who were facing the punishment of the cross as well.

  • With summer just around the corner, it is time for Kentucky 4-H teens to register for the 2018 Kentucky 4-H Teen Conference.

    The Conference takes place at the University of Kentucky June 11 through 14 and is open to all 4-H’ers who have graduated eighth grade through the age of 18.
