  • Thoughts from the pulpit

    By  Pastor Charles  Areson

    Tell City First Church of the Nazarene

     

    In Romans 8:28, Paul says God will cause all things to work together for good, for those who love him and are called by him. Notice Paul did not say everything was good. It isn’t. Some things in life are terrible, or to use a highly spiritual term, “they stink.” OK, maybe it isn’t a spiritual term, but it’s true. The key in this scripture is that God works all of our life, the good, the bad, and even the boring together for good.

    I made mention a couple of months ago of local historian Tony Collignon’s desire to find out more about a late-1800s Catholic chapel in the Adyeville area that went by the name of St. Jude Thaddeus. Tony had the dates of when he thought the chapel was open and he had shared emails with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, but he had no substantive information on the chapel. He did not have to wait long for an answer.

  • Our View: Troy Town Board: Don’t fall asleep at the wheel

    Just a few blocks from the rising Ohio River, Troy Town council members continue to paddle around their own turbulent waters. Meanwhile, residents and current and potential business interests are waiting, watching and taking note.
