Grieving the Death of Sasher Thaw

Our family of faith is grieving the death of Sasher Thaw. This five-year-old Karen girl was recently resettled in the United States. She died in a tragic accident Thursday evening. Although neither she nor her immediate family regularly gather with us at CHBC, our special relationship with the Karen community in Louisville makes them all a part of the CHBC community.

Visitation will be held in the CHBC Chapel on Monday, June 27, from 4pm - 9pm. The funeral service will take place at 10am on Tuesday, June 28, in the Chapel

If you would like to help cover the funeral costs and support the family during this difficult time, you can do so by making contributions and noting the gift is for the "Sasher Thaw Fund." Cash and check donations can be delivered to the church (2800 Frankfort Ave. Louisville, KY 40206). Or, you can contribute online at:

Empower West Louisville


Empower West Louisville is asking all citizens to read the book, The Half Has Never Been Told by Edward Baptist during Black History Month. On Monday, February 29th public reflection and conversation.

Spaces are limited. To make a reservation go to


Americans tend to cast slavery as a pre-modern institution—the nation’s original sin, perhaps, but isolated in time and divorced from America’s later success. But to do so robs the millions who suffered in bondage of their full legacy.

As historian Edward Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.

Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery’s end—and created a culture that sustains America’s deepest dreams of freedom.
