  • Child’s insight not far from teaching

    Michael Duncan

    Pastor, Eminence Baptist Church

    Like Donna and I have done, Gerry and Julie Claybrook have spent their adult lives in ministry. Julie saw one of my recent Facebook posts and easily discerned that I would be using the Lord’s Prayer as the central part of an upcoming sermon. She promptly sent me the following message:

  • Use caution with testosterone treatment
  • Keeping kids safe when it comes to accessible family medications

  • Which Jesus are we following?

    Since the beginning of February, I’ve been preaching my way through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as recorded in Matthew 5-7. The sermons have caused me grief. Jesus has high expectations. The sermons have also caused some grief for my church members.

  • 1889: Cook gets rights to spirituous liquor

  • Reduce your risk for kidney stones

    If you have ever had a kidney stone, you won’t soon forget the experience. Kidney stones can cause pain so intense some say it’s almost as bad as childbirth. It is estimated that one in ten individuals will have a kidney stone at some point in his or her life.

    Kidney stones are solid pieces of material that form in the kidney when there are high levels of certain substances in the urine. Urine is made in the kidney then passes through a small tube called the ureter and into the bladder.

  • In the beginning, there came debate

    “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and Ken Ham of the Creation Museum faced off this past week to debate creationism vs. evolution. I am so tired of this debate. It is not new. It was going on when I was a kid and when my parents were kids and when their parents were kids, and probably when Noah was a kid. Enough already! This love/hate relationship that many Christians have with science baffles me.

  • Years ago in Henry County
