I like this quote

“We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” C.S. Lewis

As time Goes By

I was watching old family 8 mm film that was just put to DVD. I am in the process of actually putting music to it all. It is amazing to me how time flies. How generations come and go. How friends and family live, and they die. So today I sit here listening to some […]

Great Joke!

The father of five children had won a toy at a raffle. When he got home, he called his kids together to ask which one should have the present. “Who is the most obedient?” he asked. “Who never talks back to mother? Who does everything she says?” Five small voices answered in unison: “You do, […]

NonReligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

I like the scene in the movie Dead Poets Society in which Mr. Keating, an English Instructor at an elite preparatory school, asks his students to rip out the “Introduction to Poetry” essay from their literature textbooks.

Pastors Who Don’t Believe In God

The Church in England is in dire straights. It’s gotten this bad: A report published today has revealed that hundreds within the Church of England clergy do not believe in God and that not even two thirds believe in miracles.

Staying Put in Adversity

David Finch had a great word of advice from his blog, Check it out. “Within the last month I’ve had numerous conversations with people that are in a tough employment and relationship situations and would love to high tail it out of there. However, it’s really not an option for them at this time. Whether […]
