Good afternoon, The refrain of a current song on the radio includes this line: “I believe most people are good.” It’s certainly an optimistic, upbeat sentiment, especially when contrasted with all the horrible things we hear about on the news and social media. Who of us wouldn’t want to share that belief? Still, a belief,…

Hello everyone: Finally….after months of anticipation, planning, and many hours of work by the committee, the celebration of our school’s 25th anniversary is here. But why all the attention and effort? Isn’t 25 just a number, one more than 24 and one less than 26? There is nothing remarkable about 25 itself, but it is…

Good morning, What’s a paraclete? The Greek word is translated as “Helper” in John 14:26 where we read: “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Literally, paraclete means someone “called…

Good morning: My dad could fix anything. At least I thought so when I was growing up. A favorite toy would break. A board game would fall apart. Later on, my car would lose a muffler or need a battery replaced. It would look pretty hopeless to me, but I knew where to go. I…

Good morning: It makes you wonder. The long black limo passes you on the freeway and you can’t help but wonder who might be the passenger behind the opaque, smoked glass windows. Is it a government official on their way to Madison or maybe an NFL star enjoying the off season? An imposing SUV is…

  Good morning: Last Thursday six people lost their lives in a bridge collapse in Florida. Sudden tragedies like that remind us of how fragile life is and how quickly our time on earth can end. For a certain police officer that lesson was especially personal. She explained in an interview that she was driving…

Good morning: What’s the way to heaven? In the minds of many it’s simple: “Pray and keep the Ten Commandments.” It is true that the Commandments spell out God’s will for mankind. Jesus summed them up like this: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all…

Good morning: You know the feeling. You drop by the grocery store to pick up milk, juice, bread, and a few other essentials. While you unload the cart on the conveyer belt you’re thinking it shouldn’t be more than a few dollars. It’s a jolt when the clerk says, “That will be $25.” If we…

Good morning: We like to win. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a friendly game of Scrabble, a school basketball game, or a competition with ten other candidates for a job, we like to come out on top. Who can resist opening the envelope with the bold print: “You’re a winner!”? But how often do you…

Good morning: “Clean” means different things to different people. To the five-year-old who can hardly wait for lunch, clean means wiping his hands off on his jeans before showing Mom. To a surgeon about to replace a heart valve, clean means a vigorous scrubbing of hands and nails with antibacterial soap and a stiff brush….
