  • Financial Advice

     The fiduciary versus suitability standard has been a hot topic in recent months.  I was recently asked when speaking to The Pewee Valley Woman’s Club in April about the Department of Labor’s recent proposal that would require those who provide advice on assets held in retirement accounts to be held to a fiduciary standard.

     Displeased with building

    When they began the marvelous renovation of the storefronts across from the church property I was equally impressed.  

  • It's always something

     We are tiny complex humans in a huge complex world and an even bigger universe.  It’s all so unimaginably, fantastically strange that we’ll never be able to understand everything.  And that applies at all levels and in all areas of life.  Once you grasp this rule you’ll sleep easier at night.

  • What happens to people who don’t believe?

     A very popular philosophical idea about salvation is known as the religious mountain.  We are at the bottom and God is at the top.  There are many paths to God (Hindu, Muslim, Judaism, Buddhism, Witchcraft, in addition to Christianity), and it doesn’t matter which one you take.  Take a path, any path, mix and match them, and we will all end up at the same place, the top of the mountain with God.
