Does Christianity have three gods?

DEAR FATHER PAUL: You kindly invite questions from your readers. I enjoyed your good account of the names of God. I wanted to know, please, this: Is the creed of Jesus as affirmed in Mark 12:29 a unitary, monotheistic proposition or a Trinitarian proposition? Anthony DEAR ANTHONY: Thank you. I regularly get this question from […]

Seems like yesterday, 25 years ago

So, here we are 25 years later. On Wednesday, Feb. 10, 1993, the first edition of The Fayette Citizen arrived in thousands of mailboxes. My first opinion column was titled, “Let the rollercoaster ride begin.” A quarter century later, I can say we’ve come a ways together, ups and downs. Big picture: Bill Clinton had […]

Lent begins — for billions

The vast majority of the Christian world is entering the season of Lent. Lent is a solemn season in the liturgical calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes just before Easter. It is a time of reflection, self-examination, prayer, fasting, and repentance. It is a time of “laying aside” unproductive habits, attitudes, practices, and […]

Once in a lifetime

Our trip of a lifetime actually starts in our basement. Not really a strange place to start a trip because we actually live in our basement. Why? Well, there are two reasons, and they are as cute as they can be. Our two granddaughters live upstairs. Ours is a unique family situation, but that’s a […]

The memo and the truth

Partisans tend to read, watch and listen only, or mostly, to information and opinions that reinforce their beliefs. If information surfaces that counters those beliefs, it is usually disparaged, excused or ignored. That’s human nature. Such is the case with the “memo” released Feb. 2 by the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee. The […]

Treasured friendship

Perhaps to some, it is an unlikely friendship but to me it is one I treasure. Nothing pleases me more than the moments of conversation I spent with One Arm, who lives up the road a bit. Normally, we stop to talk while I’m running in the mornings but he, I or Tink never pass […]

An officer’s wife says goodbye

It’s Friday morning, and another week has furiously flown by amidst commitments, deadlines and this crazy thing called life. As I strive to claim another 30 minutes of rare, undisturbed rest, my husband leans down and whispers, “I’m going now. I lovest Thee.” With one eye barely open and the other one still closed, I […]

Come on, guys, behave yourselves

The number of people in the public eye being accused of, and who are apparently guilty of, sexual abuse and misconduct has become alarming. Some of them leaders we held in high esteem, some of them so called “personalities”. How can it be this has been covered up for so long? Let me suggest a […]

Ognio: Response to Brown and 9-1-1

Let me address things that Commissioner Brown wants the citizens to believe. First that 911 director Brown’s discipline was trying to be withheld from Commissioner Brown. Commissioner Brown said he had an open record request and that document was not included. He did not issue that request through the county clerk’s office as required. Commissioner […]
