On June 17 the Big East Chapter of the Association of Lutheran Development Executives met on the Hudson River with a gathering on a spectacular day. The organization exists as a faith based group to spark philanthropy and generosity. I participate through Lutheran Services NY Alliance. Through the gracious hospitality of Ken and his boating staff, we enjoyed a six hour plus cruise on the Hudson, including lunch in Yonkers. Ken’s work boats saved the plane that landed in the Hudson and guided it to shore. It was our Miracle on the Hudson. What a day then and what a day yesterday. What I want to know is how Ken got the weather to be so great?
