Today's Opinions

  • Taking the fear from death

     Every one of us is interested in death because we know that some day we are going to die.  A lot of people are afraid of death, and their fear takes much of the joy out of living.  Many refuse to think about it at all.  But death is not a monster.  It is our best friend, and if we could be convinced of that, life would be so much freer and happier.  

  • Decorating with room to spare

      I stopped by my girlfriend’s house the other day and saw that, once again, she was moving furniture.  Lots of people enjoy rearranging their furnishings from time to time, but she takes it to a whole new level.  

  • What is true freedom in today’s world?

     “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”  These words from the first line of the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence continue to guide our nation as we seek a balance between freedom (liberty) and a controlling government that protects our freedoms.  

  • Music City Aussie Style

      For the past ten days, Australian Sam’s mum and friend Leah have been visiting us from down under.  Sam will be with us for six more weeks, but the others began their journey back to the other side of the world yesterday.

     Displeased with building

    When Southeast Christian Church moved into, and eventually bought, Crestwood Station, I was very impressed with the many changes they made, both aesthetically and structurally.  

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
