  • First Presbyterian Church to serve Christmas Eve dinner

    Children may go to sleep Christmas Eve with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads, but for some people in Madison County, sugar plums and family gatherings may be only a fantasy.
    However, First Presbyterian Church in Richmond will host a Christmas Eve dinner to which they are invited.

    And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
    And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

  • Anthony-Phelps-c.jpg The gift of love is for us to give one another

    Let us love one another, for love is of God, and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
    Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
    (1 John 4:7-12)

  • Anthony-Phelps-c.jpg Let the light in you shine for others to see

    Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    (Matthew 5:14-16)

  • Anthony-Phelps-c.jpg Jesus is your deliverer

    Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
    Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that (spirit) of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
    Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
    (1 John 4:1-4)

    I recently spent some time talking with Bill Strong and, of course, old times came into the conversation.
    He spoke of his mother, Martha, who had been born in Breathitt County during the Depression years.
