Oak Hill earns tenth 4-H trophy

When 4-H leaders walk into a fifth grade classroom, the students smile and start sneaking notebooks back into their desks. They seem to think they get a break from learning for the next hour.

It’s time for new GOP leadership

Study Bible for money 'secrets'

When's the last time you've felt excited about giving an offering at church - I mean really excited? If you've been reading this column for the past month, you might remember that when I was in Nigeria, I wrote about how excited the Nigerians got about "offering time!" with the dancing and music accompanying the bringing of their gifts, spending at least an hour of their service giving their monetary offerings.

Rasmussen: Health Care Law soon to be irrelevant

The debate in Washington this week was allegedly about the president's health care law, but it quickly became all about Sen. Ted Cruz. The Texas Republican objected to the law by speaking on the Senate floor for 21 straight hours. The effort made him a hero to some, a fool to others, and it ultimately had no legislative impact.

Scharf: A teacher learns from pupils

I write this as I sit in the mission house after my first day of teaching at Christ the King Lutheran Seminary in Uruk Uso, Nigeria. By mission house, I mean the home built for the American missionaries our church body used to send here to work among the Nigerians sharing the Gospel. That started 78 years ago.

God knows you better than you

O Lord, you have examined me. You know me … You are the one who created my innermost parts; you knit me together while I was still in my mother's womb.

Nigerian believers sing God’s praises

Wow! That's all I can say. I'm writing this on Sunday night after experiencing something I won't be able to adequately convey in words. A couple of days ago, I wrote to you from our secure hotel in Lagos, Nigeria, the big city of 20 million, home of Nigeria's biggest airport - the one I flew into. Today, I write from a world as far from that as Lagos is from Covington.
