Good morning, There are times when it’s wise not to say certain things. It would be foolish and dangerous to yell “Fire!” in a dark, crowded theater when there was no fire. Say something about a bomb in the airport screening line, and you will quickly be taken into custody for questioning. Make fun of…

Good morning: A dream of many is to be part of something bigger, to know that their life is more than just going to school or work, paying the bills, and filling one little niche in their community. But how realistic is that? None of us is famous. Have you ever wondered how many people…

Good morning: Have you ever returned from a vacation more stressed and exhausted than when you left? “I need a vacation from my vacation!” you might have said. It happens when we lose sight of a vacation’s purpose. When it is used to get away from everyday obligations and deadlines in order to rest and…

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…
