Giving Thanks

2017-10-03T08:04:02+00:00

In the aftermath of evil being unleashed upon our fellow citizens yesterday, I find it sobering that today we are reminded to give thanks to our Sovereign God who has already vanquished evil. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, perhaps our nation’s most revered Presidents, had similar thoughts about why Americans should remember to give [...]

Imagine…What if You Were There?

2017-09-26T08:26:23+00:00

We were all created with an imaginative mind…right? Watch a toddler discover over time the world that exists at his or her fingertips. The child’s brain soaks up the new information like a sponge; the imagination stretches like a rubber band. Consider the pace of new product development that takes existing technology and expands [...]

The Lincoln Bible On this day, Sept. 7, 1864, a deputation of blacks from Baltimore visited President Abraham Lincoln. They presented our 16th President with a special gift: a Bible. In thanking them, here is what he said: “In regard to this great book, I have but to say, it is the [...]

A Woman’s Right To Vote

2017-08-31T08:55:04+00:00

On Aug. 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution is officially ratified, giving women the right to vote. On Aug. 18, 1970, a nationwide Women's Strike for Equality, led by Betty Friedan on the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment calls attention to unequal pay and other gender inequalities in [...]

From Whence Will Our Rescue Come?

2017-08-29T06:31:17+00:00

I recently read a blog from a self-help enthusiast who proclaimed, “No one is coming to the rescue.” Hmm… As one who loves to read and write about sozo (a Greek word: to rescue from danger or destruction), I took immediate issue. Rescue is at the heart of every good story. Once more, I [...]

The End Of War

The related headlines come alive even today: All City 'Lets Go': Hundreds of Thousands Roar Joy After Victory Flash Is Received: Times Sq. Is Jammed: Police Estimate Crowd in [...]

Home From Italy

2017-06-27T09:29:02+00:00

My conclusions about this amazing country: God must be Italian, and heaven is any one of the countless gelato shops in every city.  And the piazzas. (No...not pizzas!) The ancient Romans and medieval Italians seemingly understood effective urban systems far better than many of our 20th Century city planners. Confession: I know nothing about the [...]

Post Memorial Day Thoughts—From a Baby Boomer Who Never Served

2017-06-05T07:55:16+00:00

Maybe it's my age, but Memorial Day automatically conjures up images in my mind of the brave, frightened souls who stormed the Normandy beaches that long ago June morning. Or the battle on Okinawa's Hacksaw Ridge, recently memorialized in Mel Gibson's movie of the same name. Sergeant Ed Reiff, USMC, around 1942. [...]

My wife and I were treated to an amazing day on May 18. We met some awesome kids who were learning to ride the bicycle for the first time in their young lives. They attended a weeklong bicycle camp in San Diego staged by a fantastic international organization called iCan Shine. I’m dedicating proceeds from [...]
