  • Be a community that comforts the hurting

    By Mona Huff

  • State enjoys academic success

    It may not have generated much publicity, but Kentucky’s economy hit a high-water mark in October, when our civilian labor force saw its biggest one-month gain in at least 40 years.  It grew by almost 15,000 during those 31 days, putting us just shy of two million people who are either working or actively looking for a job.

  • Be a community that welcomes the prodigal son

    The Surgeon General’s recently released report Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health (https://addiction.surgeongeneral.gov/surgeon-generals-report.pdf) has me thinking about the story Jesus told of a parent losing and receiving back a child (Luke 15:11-32).  

  • Talking turkey in Kentucky

    This week, our families and friends will sit down at the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, the oldest of the American-based holidays.

    Nearly 400 years have passed since the most famous of these harvest feasts was held by the Pilgrims and Native Americans.  It didn’t become the holiday we recognize today, though, until President Washington and then President Lincoln helped solidify its place on the calendar, which Congress finalized in the 1940s by declaring it to always be on the fourth Thursday of November.

  • Welcoming a new member of the family

    This year in time for the holidays, Beth and I decided to give ourselves a present. We adopted.

  • A great day for Kentucky and America

    By Governor Matt Bevin

    History was made last Tuesday in both the Commonwealth and the nation. A political outsider won the presidency and did so while ignoring conventional political wisdom regarding campaign tactics. More importantly for the Commonwealth, a seismic political shockwave was felt across our state.
