  • Hands On

  • A hamster and some dead birds

    One of parenting's biggest challenges is when to protect your kids from life and when to let them learn the truth about it.

    This is a regular challenge for most parents. When I was dating, it was unclear how much I should disclose to the boys or when I should introduce them to a woman I was seeing. When their mother abandoned them and literally disappeared, did I tell them the truth about her (mental) instability or gloss over it?

  • Grace Notes

    As I write this, it's Day 8 of my 10 days off.

    The first five days were a blur of not doing much - reading, laundry, cleaning out my bathroom junk drawer. I watched a lot of reality TV, dozed on the couch, thought about washing my windows, made a pot of black beans one day, which were very good, thought about cleaning out the refrigerator.

    Then came Day 6 - Beach Day. We strapped our bikes onto the back of the truck and drove to Clearwater Beach, the clear, blue sky and hot, hot sun designed by the chamber of commerce.

    Or perhaps God.

  • Precept study begins Aug. 6

    "Kinsmen-Redeemer" is a study for those who have never taken a Precept class and for those who like to study inductively.

    A study of the Book of Ruth, Kinsmen-Redeemer tells about Jesus and his willingness to "pay the ultimate price."

    Precept Bible studies reach across denominational lines without compromising the truth of God's word.

    Classes will take place on Thursdays from Aug. 6 through Aug. 27 at Bethel First Presbyterian Church, located at 502 E. Main St. in Campbellsville, from 1 to 3 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m.
