  • Taking up the cross

    When Jesus said, “Take up your cross and follow me,” he was speaking figuratively, about denying oneself and living sacrificially for God and others. But on Good Friday, local Christians took the instruction literally and carried a large replica of the cross around Bardstown.

    “It means that one day a year, I’ll be able to bear some of the burden that Christ bore for us,” said Robin Brock, who was one of those who carried the cross down Third Street from the Old Courthouse.

  • Nelson County joins rock-hiding craze

    While hiding and finding Easter eggs is a popular activity this time of year, Nelson Countians have joined up for another craze — rocks.

    Nelson County Rocks is a public Facebook group, which formed recently after taking inspiration from similar groups in surrounding areas.

    The group has a simple mission — paint rocks with positive or funny messages and designs, and hide them for others to find. It’s a trend that has quickly taken off as there are over 800 members to the local group alone.
