  • The healing power of forgiveness

    Betty had what is called “a just grievance” when she came to me.   She had been treated with disrespect and broken promises in a relationship. I asked her how much time each day she spent thinking about the injustice and venting about the way she had been treated. Betty had worked herself up into a frenzy and her stress level had risen considerably. I asked Betty if she was constructively taking responsibility for what she could do to become more at peace with the situation by what she was saying and thinking, or was she dwelling on the betrayal.

  • Disappointment with God

    A few months ago, I got a letter from someone I’ll call “Emily.”
    She wrote to ask for my encouragement, which is always humbling and I take these requests seriously.
    Emily said she and her husband are both Christians, but right now neither is close to God. She said her husband is depressed and that makes her anxious and afraid, unsure of when and if it will end, and what will happen because of it.

  • State has 60 nature preserves totaling 25,000 acres

    “Buy land,” Mark Twain once said.  “They’re not making any more of it.”

    That investment advice has been taken to heart by the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, which formally celebrated 35 years of service last week.

    Since it began, the commission has permanently set aside more than 25,000 irreplaceable acres for future generations.  Their 60 nature preserves range from the Blanton Forest near Virginia to Three Ponds along the Mississippi River.
