• Learning to enjoy the ride

    When I first met my husband, he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior — and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

    The lawn, parking lot and walkway outside of St. Thomas Parish was packed Tuesday night as family, friends and members of the community attended a prayer service for Crystal Rogers. The Bardstown mother of five went missing one year ago. It was an emotional scene Tuesday as her children, siblings, parents and extended family held each other close.

  • Differences between then and now

    By Karl Lusk

    The headlines in the print media and the lead-ins on broadcast media are filled with violence. Whether it’s an apparent murder or motor vehicle crash locally, another Louisville gunshot death, the horrible massacre in Orlando, or a story about seven killed in Chicago, we are immersed in situations that tax our abilities to comprehend or understand.

  • Die before you die

    By David Reeves, guest columnist

    Almost every day, I take a walk through a sea of headstones. Most of them are small and identical. A few are imposing and ornate. All of us end up at such a place, or in an urn, or in a lab at a medical school. But death is not the great Satan. It is the flip-side of the coin of life. And in linear terms, you will be dead much longer than you will be alive. This is not morbid, it’s just reality. Woody Allen had a good line: “I don’t mind dying; I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”

  • Keep focused in finding your calling

    This is a true story about Clark Edwards, a man I admire and have looked up to as a mentor in the faith for a long time. Years ago, he asked me to accompany him in his prison ministry, to sing songs and share whatever was on my heart, and I have been with him on many occasions since. I usually begin the services with worship and he follows with a sermon and always gives an invitation for anyone to receive Christ as their Lord. Sometimes he will also sing an old hymn without any music and you can feel the presence of God saturating the atmosphere.
