Does God work in the Church or the Court?

I think it must have flown under the radar for many folks, but last week the Supreme Court issued two decisions which impacted issues many conservative Christians label as top priorities. In one ruling SCOTUS overturned lower court rulings which had allowed a Texas ban on abortions during the pandemic. What is significant about this... Continue Reading →

A Tale of Two Wednesdays

Two events, at the same location, separated by a mere two weeks, and they could not have had more divergent responses. This is the take of many Americans who watched what happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 & 20. Many were troubled by the events of January 6, recognizing the chaos and destruction...

I Must be Fair. Say it Again.

I must be fair—for if I'm not fair to other people, I'm not worth being understood myself I see. George MacDonald "The Princess and the Goblin" I am currently reading The Princess and the Goblin to my children, and if you have never read this book please do, it is simply wonderful.

Connecting Across the Aisle

The events at the Capitol last Wednesday have been startling for many and has produced confusion, and stress for a number of people I know. The most unsettling moment for me was when a friend emailed me about a family situation. This person told me how some family members have united their Christian faith and... Continue Reading →

I, like so many others have been touched deeply... Continue Reading →

For the last month I have been reading stories of individuals who made claims to have heard God speak, and these stories have centered on a common message-- Mr. Trump will win the election.

What History are You Reading?

We are all familiar with the maxim "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it" (attributed to George Santayana). Though I like Santayana"s maxim (I like to think my schooling means something), yet it is not as easy to practice as one might think. For me this has been illustrated in... Continue Reading →
