“People can be so cruel,” said my friend.  “It’s like they take some twisted pleasure in saying or doing something that will make someone suffer.  If God is really so good, why does he allow that?”

I have attended several functions over the past few weeks in our district. I met with MODOT to discuss dangerous intersections, met with Pike County mayors to discuss local issues of importance, and attended a Rotary Club meeting with Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe. The Lieutenant Governor g…

I hope you all had a great summer, enjoy this last weekend and if you plan on traveling, make sure to keep an eye out for road conditions and drive safe! I look forward to serving you in the future.

“I just don’t feel like I fit in,” said my friend.  “The way that everybody says it’s supposed to happen doesn’t seem to be happening for me.  I work hard to take care of my home and family, I participate in community activities.  Everyone says they think of me as a model wife and mother.  B…

“No,” said my friend.  “I appreciate the invitation.  I used to enjoy church a lot.  But that was so many years ago, and I really don’t feel like I belong there any more.”

“Going to church,” said my friend. “It just seems so hypocritical. I mean, the people who attend regularly aren’t any better than the rest of us. I guess I’ve always felt it’s more honest to admit that I’m not a Christian — not that I think I’m particularly evil, but I’m no saint, either. Th…
