• Bagdad celebrates 125 years

    In the small town of Bagdad a church building stands, and it’s been standing there for over 100 years. While many others have suffered from fire, tornado, wind and storm damage, Bagdad Baptist Church has stood the test of time.

    “One of the neatest things we have is that we have our original building,” said church member, Peggy Perry.

  • Coming into the light

    A large wooden cross, made of barn lumber and draped with cloth at the bottom, will be the only adornment on the altar at Holy Cross Lutheran Church tonight at the conclusion of the Good Friday service.

    Seven candles placed on top of the cross will be extinguished one by one, as the lights go down, to symbolize the crucifixion, said pastor Daniel Guagenti .

    “It definitely gives a sense of His dying and suffering for us,” he said.

  • Transcending spiritual boundaries

    A Protestant church in Shelbyville has embraced a traditionally Catholic tradition and added a somewhat unique twist.

    Church members at First Christian Church, 1000 Eminence Pike, have been very receptive to having the Stations of the Cross set up in the sanctuary, and what’s more, they even constructed them all by hand, said pastor Dave Charlton.

  • Coming to believe

    Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity(Step Two, Alcoholics Anoymous, p. 59).

    In the midst of a heroin epidemic in our community, now is the appropriate time for us to take seriously the fact that lives will continue to be lost and families ripped apart until we respond to this chronic, progressive and fatal disease with meaningful recovery.
