So much to say, so little time. This might be just an exercise in futility, but as the CSN&Y anthem advises, “Carry on. Love is coming.” So, there is a sense of urgency…

Within the dominion of the Christian religions, sects, and denominations there are many missing pieces to their…

I apologize for not being as clear as I could have been in my attempt to convey a reasoned response to the philosophy of “faith deconstruction.” After talking to my Editor-in-chief (who is also my wife), I discovered I have two problems communicating: First, trying to be “too cute by…

Please don’t take this the wrong way, but hear me out. There’s a “new” fad out there called “Faith Deconstruction.” It is a horrible concept. Horrible. Not knowing how widespread it has or will become, it is still an old and worn technique, “a rose by any other name” still…

I used to blame my parents.

I used to blame D.C…

I used to blame my girlfriend.

I used to blame my life.

I used to blame anything

for my condition.

I used to blame everything

There is more serious info of course, like weather and climate, political facts and legislation. …

Hysterical History

Placing hope in the world today is a futile exercise at an ill-equipped gym. There are no weights needed for building strength. The only stretching going on in this gym is the stretching of the truth. Chaos is substituted for a balanced nutritional diet of reasoning. Alternate truths…

Gravity

Ever see the movie “Gravity” where Sandra Bullock’s character gets untethered from her spacecraft? She is in grave danger, floating away into oblivion. I liked the movie. It was fiction, it did not really happen, but it is still anchored in scientific possibility. So, it is Science Fiction. Mostly…

Starting Point

God of the Bible really and truly exists. I know this. I know this for myself, because I have experienced His power of love, of healing, of character improvement, of knowledge and insight. However, as a friend pointed out, it’s not “all about me,” and I apologize if…

“I want to know what love is; I want you to show me!” was the plea in a song sung by the 1980’s band Foreigner. I have no idea if this was a seductive manipulation of a woman or an earnest appeal for understanding an individuals’ capacity for something more…
