Reflections on the Half Century Mark
Today is my 50th birthday.  Also, today I had the honor and privilege of speaking to the senior high school girls at a tea hosted by the local Lion's Club.  It is a fun thing they do every year.  The girls dress up, eat finger sandwiches, and drink tea from...

A Prayer For the Twentieth Anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing
Today
we gather to remember and reflect on an event that changed the way we see the
skyline of downtown Oklahoma City; that changed for many a sense of security

the face of terrori...

Has Reason Left Us?
It seems the current ideological climate is marked by unreasonableness.  I remember when you could have a conversation with another person and could disagree without resorting to hate-filled remarks and character assassinations.  You might even have a civil...

I'll try to do better...
I'm not doing very well at my Lenten practice.  I forgot yesterday until very late, so I thought I would do two today.  I forgot again.  So, maybe I'll do one tomorrow since everything is snowed under here.  I'll try to do better, of course I am reminded of...

My View is Limited
I do not know many people who enjoy walking in the dark.  Most of the time we stumble around, stubbing our toes and knocking our shins.  We prefer to clearly see where we are going and any obstacles in our path.   While we can flip a switch to light the roo...
