  • Hope for the Future

    Someone pointed out that we live in two worlds – the world that is and the world we want it to be. Faith takes hold of the world that is and makes it what we want it to be. Faith takes the possible and makes it real. It was the great William James who said, “As the essence of courage is to stake one’s life on a possibility, so the essence of faith is to believe that the possibility exists.” By believing that a better tomorrow is possible, we have the courage to give our best to the creating of that tomorrow.

  • Struggling through the Holidays

    The holiday season presents particularly stressful situations to those struggling with grief. For many, this is the first holiday since the death of a loved one. Many can’t bear to see a Christmas tree. Every light, gift box and song invokes a painful recollection. These memories come at inopportune times, sometimes accompanied by a single tear, and sometimes with an anguish that buckles the knees. We each have to fight our way back towards “normal” and holidays are part of that struggle.

  • Cats-Cards tough to call this season

     I’ve lived all 22 of my years in Kentucky and I’m not sure I can remember a Kentucky vs. Louisville game that was this hard to pick.
    What makes the rivalry relevant nationally is both programs are typically always good. But in recent seasons one team was just a shade better than the other going into the game.
    Last year U of L went into the game with the more complete roster and came out with a 80-77 win.
