The initial book tour of Hope for Troubled Minds came to a rousing close with a talk/dialogue at Louisville Seminary for their Alumni Day of Giving. Going back to my alma mater ‘90 after three decades was an adjustment but it was great to meet students, staff, trustees, and fellow alumni like Ginny Brown and David Wallace. It was a blessing to be so warmly received and I want to particularly thank Laura Kelley and all who facilitated the visit.

All told, I spoke at 9 engagements at 7 venues in my former Kentuckiana homeland. It was a delight to join Pastor George Love, Helen Sarver, and the saints at Hebron Presbyterian; share my story with faithful friends Eric and Jen Riddle at First Presbyterian (Columbus, IN) and greet my fellow seniors with Linda Clark at Mill Race Center. Thanks to the Bartholomew County Public library for hosting an event where I had special family guests. Rev. Dr. Sarah Lund and the First Congrational UCC made me feel right at home.

Finally thanks to Beth Wilson Stroh and Viewpoint Books for hosting a book signing. Autographed books may still be purchased there.

Now I leave for my new homeland — between the Catskills & the Adirondacks for some much needed R&R. In June I will be riding the rails to Philly.
