READER WARNING: This is a fairly long read compared to the usual social media fare, so if you get into it and you read something that aggravates you, click away from the article because it's clearly not meant for you. If you consider yourself able to listen to other points of view and thoughtfully consider them, even if in the end you still don't agree, then maybe you won't be aggravated.

Here's a sample that may help you decide whether you want to read it or not:

"I have often asked this question in the past: 'We have no problem understanding how childhood trauma, unless eventually confronted and the cycle broken, can damage a family from generation to generation, so why do we struggle so much with the idea that collective trauma inflicted against a people can have a similar impact on an entire culture?'"

So if that didn't scare or annoy you, let me ask you this: How do "Black Panther," "Wonder Woman," and Oprah Winfrey come together in a single article? If you're intrigued, read on!

"And he who was seated on the throne said, 'Behold, I am making all things new.' Also he said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'” ~ Revelation 21:5

May 2018 be the year in which you partner with Lord to make something new! A happy and blessed New Year to you and yours!

"That is the heart of the Christmas message for me – no matter how dark it may seem, God is always working, His plan is irrevocable, and things are happening now that may seem innocuous or even negative today but will bear fruit when He declares it is time." ~ Ron Miller, "Breaking the Silent Night"

As we enter into the Christmas season, I thought I'd share last year's holiday message with you. As I read it, most of it is still relevant today. I hope it's a blessing to you!

A student emailed me and essentially said he hoped I'd had a good day despite the election results. It made me chuckle because election results don't phase me. I don't put my hope in politicians. I think we'd be a healthier nation if we could all say that and mean it.

"It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes." ~ Psalm 118:9
