The Murderer In All of Us

Two recent news items have drawn my attention to thoughts about murder. The first was the pastor’s wife who shot her husband and the second was the largest mass murder in US history, the tragedy at Virginia Tech. In many ways they were the typical American family. All smiles… and matching outfits… and horror that […]

Baseball and the Resurrection

My two favorite events happen every springtime: celebrating the opening of another season of baseball and celebrating the resurrection of Christ (not necessarily in that order). In fact, they are definitely not in that order. What could baseball possibly have in common with the most important event in history? You might be surprised. Both events […]

Stopping By Would's On A Snowy Evening

Whose would’s these are, I think I know… They’re mine. Would today’s school cancellations be another laughingstock? Would the weather turn and make the superintendents look intelligent? Would we inevitably cancel our church activities? Indeed the answers (in order) are… YES-NO-YES. Thankfully snowy evenings give us pause. A chance to be with family and reflect […]

And while the dreamer in me would love to focus on the part that we were experiencing a first together, the realist […]

Bringin’ It

Thankfully Pastor Phil’s virus was only of the 24-hour variety and he is – as they say – fine as a frog hair. Better than that really… if that is possible. Wait a minute! Frogs don’t have hair. But he is feeling better and his teaching is going well and the students all love him […]

It’s Time to Surrender

Enough’s enough. For weeks I have carried on an embarrassing charade… inside my head! One week passed then another and soon it was 7 (this week makes 8) weeks that I had failed to blog about the book I read. The charade was that I would actually return at some point and blog about all […]

A Little Behind… Again

OK I guess it’s not a little behind. The only thing that remains on schedule is my reading. I have been HORRIBLE about blogging in the last few weeks. With several speaking engagements and a new school year starting, I have been unable to get to the “book reports”. They will return soon… I promise.
