  • Opinion: Gunslingers

    By David Reeves

    When I was a young man, I worked several years as an actor/director with West Texas Productions. We did a “comic” gunfight show for Six Flags Amusement Parks. The standard plot had three bad guys come into town and call out the lawman and his deputy. The good guys and bad guys bantered for awhile á la Hee Haw, then they slapped leather. The good guys always won and the bad guys always died. Yippie! If it were so easy.

  • People & Places: Inspired by India

    Kristal Monroe may be back in the states, but a recent trip to India has her eager to help from home.

    “I didn’t know a lot about India when I went,” Monroe said. “It was eye-opening to see how other people live.”

    Monroe made the trip with an Atlanta mission group after being invited by a pastor she had grown up with.

    The group flew into Chennai and then took a six-hour train ride into Tenali, where they would spend the majority of their time for the two-week mission.

  • Be prepared with something useful

    It seems that I’m getting more phone calls these days for debt consolidation, paying off student loans, keeping the IRS off my back, etc. For the record, I thankfully don’t need any of those assists. Along with them, I am also getting texts entitled “Discover Twitter,” and offers of social media apps for my cell phone. I don’t need those either!

  • Help others as he has helped you

    There is a lovely colonial type home that sits at the end of what used to be old Highway 27 in Jessamine county, but many are probably not aware that it has been renovated and expanded into a nationally accredited, private, nonprofit agency called, “All God’s Children,” which provides help for the needs of pregnant and/or parenting teen moms (ages 13-21) and their babies. 

    It is truly a blessing to see Christian ministries reaching out with compassion to assist those in need.

  • Living a beautiful, broken life

    When Michelle Smith talks about God, tears trickle down her cheeks.

    A 13th-generation native Floridian, she’s selling or giving away all of her possessions to move to the Congo in central Africa, one of the most volatile areas on the planet.

    She’ll be joining a small handful of other people who feel called by God to “come and die,” as Michelle says, for the sake of the gospel of peace.

  • ‘If my people ... shall humble themselves’

    As the crowd sang “There is Power in the Blood” and shouted prayers with their hands lifted toward heaven, one theme echoed throughout the downtown gathering of worshippers. It came from Scripture repeated at prayer rallies around the nation Thursday night.

    “If my people, who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and then will I forgive their sins and will heal their land,” Pastor Tim Acree of Bardstown Apostolic Sanctuary quoted the Old Testament.
