Fathers Day

Happy Father's Day! Those words are echoing through the community all morning, accompanied with breakfast in bed (Cheerio's with chocolate milk, burnt toast and hand drawn pictures of adolescent abstract art, rendered by a future Picasso) or, perhaps, with a slender box containing the world's ugliest tie. In an earlier era, when school electives carried a higher value and priority, one might receive the odd handcrafted ceramic ashtray (emphasis on the word "odd").

Little these days remains the same

Have you bought your iPad yet? I have to admit that mine still safely resides at a store somewhere. For that matter, I don't even have an iPod yet. How backwards is that?

Need wisdom? Get with God

It really was amazing how it happened. I'm not sure what he did to change. But when I was about 15 years old my dad was not very smart. He had all kinds of beliefs and rules that were old fashioned and foolish. I even got to the point that I prayed that he would get smarter and more up to date. It only took about 10 years, but that is actually what happened. By the time I was 25 he was one of the smartest men I knew. And he had not even gone to school. He just ...

You can't do it by yourself

Many of us remember the TV commercial about the elderly woman who was alone, fell in her home and "couldn't get up." She found herself in a bad situation. We all remember the woman's cry for help: "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up."

Greater love has no one than this

Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." During this Memorial Day weekend, we take the time to remember those who have given their lives for us. I know that we, as a nation, have often debated the merits of a particular war. The reasons for conflict have been many and varied.

The audio Bible is often an add-on in a scripture-rich place such as America, where installing a smartphone application is a matter of a few clicks.
