Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

As I’ve gotten older, I have tried not to let little things annoy me. When I encounter irritating situations, I try to hide my immediate, natural reaction. Since we are all different, those bothersome, annoying things may differ from person to person. A few of the things that tend to annoy me are listed below in no special order.

Cheryl Hughes: I am today

My brother told me about a conversation he had with a friend.  The friend had several children but was close to only one.  He justified his favoritism by saying, “We share the same interests.”  My brother told him, “If you love a child, you get interested in the things they are interested in, whether you are interested in those things or not.”  My brother is right.  Love is all about going out of your way.

Jarrod Jacobs: “His Blood Be On Us!”

In the hours before His crucifixion, Pilate tried to get testimony from Jesus, but Jesus remained silent (Jn. 19:9; Mk. 15:3-5; Isa. 53:7). Pilate knew Christ had been delivered out of “envy” (Matt. 27:18), so he appealed to the people and their customary “prisoner release” during the Passover (Jn. 18:39-40). Sadly, the people listened to the chief priests and elders and chose Barabbas instead of the Lord (Matt. 27:15-21). Finally, he took water and literally “washed his hands” of the situation. He declared, “I am innocent of this man’s blood; see to it yourselves” (Matt. 27:24).

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

By the time Cheers signed off, Frasier-played by Kelsey Grammer-was an integral part of that ensemble.  He didn’t even join the show until its third season and hadn’t even been intended as a permanent cast member.  Nearly 39 years after Dr Frasier Winslow Crane made his first appearance on the sitcom Cheers (in the opening episode of season three, by the way), we have been treated to the first season of the Frasier reboot on Paramount +.

Cheryl Hughes: Fallout

Sometimes, I get really angry at people I’ve never met.  People who haven’t lived during my lifetime, even.  People who have been long dead for thousands of years.  I have conversations in my head in which I say things like, “What were you thinking!  What did you think was going to happen!  Did you ever consider anyone but yourself!”  These one-sided conversations usually take place in the wee hours of the morning, when sleep evades me.

Jarrod Jacobs: “Our Astonishing God”

One of the most striking statements concerning God is found in the book of Isaiah. “Behold, the Lord GOD will come with a strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

This week, I’ll delve into the world of Steven Van Zandt.  Steven Van Zandt embodies both the frustration and beauty of the arts.  There is no official title, no one way to do the job.  He’s discovered it’s easier to be this creative furnace, this volcano of artistic output when you are not the focus.  The longtime guitarist and musical director of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band was also an underboss of a different kind: acting in one of history’s most influential television shows (T

Congressman Brett Guthrie: Western Kentucky Keeps the Lights On

I am proud to represent some of our nation’s most dedicated workers who live here in Western Kentucky. For generations, Western Kentuckians have woken up before sunrise and returned home well after sunset, working hard in coal mines and at power plants to keep our energy grid powered with American-made energy.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

One of my granddaughters is a senior. That last year of high school is a year of memory making and wondering what to do next. I believe the decisions about jobs and careers are some of the most stressful decisions we make.
