    “I did not see a bad team in the tourney!”

    That was Trimble County Coach Ruth Staples’ assessment of the competition in Saturday’s All A Classic state tournament in Paducah.

    Trimble came in third in pool play, landing the Lady Raiders in the Bronze Division, according to Staples.  

    Trimble was defeated by Bardstown Bethlehem, 0-2, and Allen Central, 0-2, before defeating Burgin, 2-1. Trimble then fell to Raceland, 1-2.

  • 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.

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.
