  • Light It Up Blue with the Riddells

    It’s been just over a year since Karey Riddell’s son, Wesley, made it his mission to light up the stately white building in downtown Cynthiana with blue lights.
    His family was in the process of relocating to Cynthiana after living briefly in Frankfort. Karey and Noel Riddell made it their mission also.
    And while Wesley, Karey and Noel were carrying the figurative blue torch, many other Cynthiana people joined the parade to bring awareness to autism.
    Wesley was diagnosed with autism at a young age.

  • The Monday After Easter

    What were the days following Jesus’ resurrection like for the first disciples?
    Jesus had died, and he was dead no longer. Just as He promised, He had overcome death, the last enemy. But what did it all mean?
    Surely, it took time for them to fully comprehend the whirlwind of events that had taken place the previous week. Before He returned to his Father, Jesus helped His followers to realize some of the implications. His death and resurrection were no aberration in God’s plan. They were the plan.

  • Welcome to the theater of the absurd

    Years ago when I did a lot of conference and retreat speaking, I was invited to speak at the annual Episcopal women’s diocesan meeting at the cathedral in downtown Orlando.
    A local Episcopalian woman who had suggested my name offered to take care of all the details for me. All I had to do was show up, which is what I do best.

  • Ready for baseball

    As the basketball season winds down with the National Champions crowned in a few days, I am glad it is over.  
    I didn’t realize how glad I was until I mistakenly looked at my twitter account yesterday. I didn’t know that there were so many uninformed, prejudice people that could put messages on my account, which I have since seriously considered getting rid of but haven’t yet.  
    I am not talking about politics here though the description also fits what I read about that, but I am talking about basketball.
